Some people are proud of their 20 years of experience in a particular field, except that they really have one year’s experience 20 times.

Then there are those with just five years’ experience, but it’s real experience.  They have come a long way during that time, continually learning, growing, honing their craft.

What about you?

Do you have real experience?

Can you see the evidence of growth from 10 years ago?  5 years?  One?

Do others look to you because of the expertise that you have developed during that time?

Are you next in line for that big promotion, not because of your tenure, but because of your contribution?

Do you find yourself in a rut, or are you forging new paths?

Real experience.

That’s what will sustain your career and maximise your contribution in the years ahead.
