"How do I know when to accelerate my career, and when to slow down?"

10/28/2019, By Adrian Choo

Last night, at a talk given to the Nanyang Business School Alumni, I was asked a wonderful question by a delightfully intelligent lady. "How do I know when to accelerate my career, and when to slow down?" The answer was simple. What makes you truly happy? What is your definition of Career Success? Is it Money? Is it Title? Or is it Time with Family? There are no right or wrong answers... Just be honest with yourself and don't let the World decide for you. Put ego aside and ask yourself, "Honestly, what do I want?" If it's money, then go for it! If it's fame, go for it! If it's a Career break, do it! But have a hashtagCareerStrategy first... Then decide how to act on it.
