I'd like to tie all of the articles in today's Careers e-newsletter together in one bundle and call it: Jumpstart your career. Too often we stick with the status quo. We probably don't even stop to think about it, but if we did, we might see ourselves on a treadmill, going through the same motions, day after day, without giving consideration to taking the reins of that wagon that is pulling our careers along and turning it in a new direction.
I'm not saying you need to decide on an entirely new path - but it might be time to redefine the path that you are on. Take some time to think about the improvements you can make in your current position, your client relationships, your firm's offerings and how they are marketed. Forget the status quo for awhile and consider venturing into new territory. See where your imagination will take you.
