Working hard without reward? Feeling like you’ve done your time, paid your dues, but still not getting the advancement or recognition you deserve?
People tend to view effort as an investment that will pay off, and view quitting as ‘giving up’ rather than maximizing success. Maybe the opposite is true. If this sounds interesting, this episode is for you. In this episode of The Career Rx we’ll discuss:
- What it means to NOT give your all
- The myth that hard work alone equals advancement
- The art of knowing when to quit
Today we're talking about reasons why you should not give your all to one thing and why that’s a recipe for burnout and defeat. This topic comes from my reflections on Dr. Meg Meyers Morgan’s book called Everything is Negotiable, and some wisdom from Annie Duke’s book How to Decide. Listen for my take on what this means and how it applies directly to your career.
