Here are a few tips for making 2012 a success both personally and professionally.
Help Others. Bodyguard Careers, the President; Harlan “Hucky” Austin and I feel it’s an honor and a pleasure to help others in the industry. It always makes us feel good to know that we are providing solid information to improve the personal and professional lives of our readers. We encourage all our readers to do the same.
You should help others in the industry with your time, EP experience and skills. A little assistance and advice goes a long way. The more you help others, the more kindness you will receive from others in the industry accordingly from the law of reciprocity.
Learn Something New. Make a promise to learn something new in the industry. This trade of ours’ calls for lifelong learning; if you are not learning you are rusting. I’ve been in the industry 20 plus years and have my list of learning activities for 2012 include; learn a new language, write a new book and take a course in the scientific pursuit of stalking. What are your learning activities for 2012?
Keep Accountable. Accountability starts with writing down your personal and career goals and checking off the progress you have made on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. This will make a huge difference in boosting your accountability for goal accomplishment.
Goal Achievement. Make your personal and professional goals realistic so you will have a good chance of achieving all of them. Stay ambitious, but break each of your goals down into small workable ones to help you reach them more easily and in a timely manner. Keep safe and God speed.
Thank you for the kind comments. You advance work
program sounds like a good one. If I hear of anyone
coming your way on assignments, I will give them your
contact details. Keep safe and God speed.
Doc, as to be expected, your advice is priceless. I will start on my list very soon. I guess one thing I can put out there now is I have a goal to be certified in First Aid/CPR by mid-year. Doc, I do think You and Hucky will only benefit ten fold from the help that you two selflessly give to others everyday through the priceless knowledge and wisdom shared in the articles the both of you write. I would like to take this time to extend myself to offer help to anyone who may have an upcoming detail in the Atlanta, Athens, Augusta, Georgia area as I am very familiar with all three cities. If you would like for me to give complete advance information about any venue in this area I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-414-5727. I do not wish to know anything about your client or the detail itself. I am only interested in providing you with the advance information you will need for your detail, nothing more. What’s in it for me? I get to keep my Advancing Skills sharp and if it is a venue I have never worked, I can add that information into my folder for future reference. Again, Doc. another great article. Thanks and Be Blessed!
Hi Casey: Thanks so much for your kind words. Keep safe and God speed.
