Success through employment is one of the options you have. I recommend that your objective is to have clear career focus of the corporate/ organization level you eventually plan to reach.

As a government employee or civil servant, however brilliant you may be, being well networked with political leaders and other high-level civil servants is critical for your fast career progression.

If you are a regular reader of this column, I hope by now you have a clear personal strategy. My experience is planning for five-10 years ahead is better than annual planning and New Year resolutions. The year of these days is so short. As an individual, you will experience key milestones over a five-10 year horizon. Ask: what do I intend to have achieved within the next five years.

2016to2017

This is the time of the year most people make resolutions for the New Year. Resolutions fail because they are not translated into actions to become real. It is not enough to make resolutions for a new year. Have clear actions or activities to achieve them, and a yardstick to measure progress.

priorities

Now that you know who you are, the next step is to ask what does success mean to you, and your key stakeholders.

Your family, relatives, friends and community are critical. At each stage of your life, who are those people with a lot of influence (in your career choice) and interest (in your success?)

Are you financially independent? Do you have enough money to cover your basic needs and have some to save for the old age?

You need money to buy your needs and wants. You cannot be happy and achieve peak performance unless you afford to buy your basic needs.

How do you ensure you are financially stable to have peace of mind?

  • Have a clear financial strategy
  • Be a master of your own life. Write down what it is you want to achieve in in line with your guiding values or personal credo. Set your own agenda and work consistently towards your target in line with your values.

If you lack clarity about your definition of success, how will you know when you make it?

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” Thomas A. Edison

Getting ahead

Success is a series of trial and error. Don’t associate with people telling you not to persist. Pick your friends carefully.

If someone is less successful than you are, don’t waste your time listening to their negative advice. You may only listen to the less successful if they give you words of encouragement.

The biggest financial challenge is living beyond your means. You could attribute this extravagant life style to our society. As one rich Ugandan once advised, “if you want to succeed in Uganda, appear to be successful by driving a great car, owning a fantastic home in the CBD and having a big office.”

Well… by the time you have these things, you are already rich!
