You have opportunities every day to volunteer for projects, meet new people and try new things. Are you actually doing it though? It is so much easier to stay in your comfort zone and continue to do the same old things, but it will keep you in the same place. This is a decision that you need to make and it is not always an easy decision.
You may have a lot going on and will be quick to talk yourself out of it. Every time this happens think back to your bigger goals for yourself. If you say no to this opportunity, it can keep you from reaching your goals. Especially if you trying to do something big in your career, you won’t get there if you keep doing the same old things.
If you want to stand out, then you need to do big things. You never know which decision you make that can take you to a place you never planned. You can learn new things, meet new people and get visibility with your management team. All of these things are positives to take you to the next level. Be willing to take the risk and stand out!
