The "path of opportunity"

This is a useful article that has been published to the LISJobs.com site. In it the author discusses how having a dynamic career involves a mix of good luck, hard work, and an ability to position yourself smack in the middle of the "path of opportunity" -- "that spot where cool new things are happening"

The author highlights 4 key areas for development:

  • Making yourself more visible
  • Monitoring Your Environment
  • Being Prepared to Act
  • Taking the Initiative

Some of these areas for development seem fairly obvious but it's good to be reminded that this is what we should all be doing.
