“Great results cannot be achieved at once, and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk — step-by-step.” — Samuel Smiles
Skill mapping draws on your vision for yourself — your career and your life – yours, not the bosses, not the corporations, not the government, not your parents. Yours.
Skill mapping is built on the metaphor of a journey. The process starts with an assumption that on the journey of life you need a detailed map to follow. Not having one means we are lost in confusion, doubt and uncertainty.
Can you imagine how it would feel to realize you have wasted years on the wrong path? To understand that you are stuck in a dead-end job? And there’s nothing worse than being racked with regret over a career wasted.
After all, it’s your life journey, not theirs. You shouldn’t use someone else’s map, you must create your own. This gives you self-confidence — the power to know where you are going and how you can get there.
Remember, most people know what they don’t like, not what they do want. You know what you don’t like about your current job; but do you have a grasp of what’s better? It’s important to construct something better and take action to make it happen.
Essentially, skills mapping is the process of getting from where you are to where you want to be. The beauty in this technique lies in the fact that you can:
- Know what improves current performance, while
- Preparing for a better future.
Step into a better future by following this down to earth, practical six-step process to define the roles you want to play on the stage of life. Define what it takes to be a star.
