There a few solid traits that you must possess in order to have a good career. Work ethic. Consistency. Focus. Are a few. But have you considered imagination?
If you are surprised, why do you believe it can make a difference in building a better career? Being a bit more creative and imaginative can give you a different prospective on ways to be successful. For example, having a different spin when it comes to marketing your small business. Or the way you position your brand in a saturated market place.
These days career development is very important. Anything and everything is useful for your development–varied work experiences, education, practical and theoretical knowledge–these are all things that contribute to what makes you YOU in the talent pool. Then adding the ingredient of imagination to the mix gives you another way of exploring your career potential. Imagination can fuel new and exciting ways of how you can add value to a particular industry or to your local community.
Imagination should be developed just like your heart or your muscles. You have to be aware that your imagination can open up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to your career success! It is just a matter of you being aware that the world needs your ideas and thoughts–you just have to be willing to work a bit hard to others to see it.
