“Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.”
Imagine this: You’ve been working hard for months, maybe years, getting yourself ready for a significant promotion. You’re doing all the right things: Getting to work early, planning your time and staying focused, volunteering for tough assignments and then completing them brilliantly; mentoring and otherwise helping your peers and your team; the list goes on.
The phone rings. It is the call you’ve been waiting for: The job offer for the promotion.
What is your reaction? Joy? Panic? Imagine it. Go there deeply. We’ll talk about it next JAM.
