Rules, Your Nature, and Your Career

by seo on July 28, 2009

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes talked about rules and how they are the most important aspect of any business and in any profession.

Harrison emphasizes that you need to ensure that you know the rules governing whatever you are doing in life and in your career. Without this there is no way you can succeed in what you are doing. Every job has a series of rules that need to be followed if you want to see progress. If you follow the rules you will do well and if you violate them you will not.

It is important to set goals and carefully and aggressively identify all your weaknesses. Writing it down always helps. You know exactly what it would take for you to get better at your job and to continually rise above previous expectations. Without setting goals and continually expanding on them, success is just not possible.

There are certain professions and people whose rules we understand instinctively. There are also rules we do not understand instinctively or, sometimes, at all. These are the people we find ourselves having disagreements with out of nowhere, and these are the jobs that make us feel completely out of place.

The best thing you can do is put yourself in a situation where the rules are instinctive to you. Also, it can be extremely beneficial to make yourself a list of rules and goals, in order to learn the essence of your chosen profession. Once you understand and feel the rules everything comes together easier because you seem to be following your own nature–rather than going against it. And if you follow your nature you will find success.
