Know yourself inside and out. What do you want? What do you like? What do you want to be like? Self reflection is a key to understanding the answers to each of these questions, and being meticulous in self reflection will help you to present yourself as the person you want to be perceived as.

Leading can be lonely and it’s tempting to just be satisfied with status quo and failing to act when in a tough spot. I’ve found on a number of times, that action or agency, even with imperfect is better than inaction.
An example of this is based on an anecdote about a Hungarian reconnaissance unit lost in the Alps. In the poem, the soldiers faced an icy death, until their leader found a map which he used to lead the platoon to safety. On their return, however, it was found that the map was not of the Alps but of the Pyrenees.

If you're interviewing, think about your personal branding as the narrative you build for yourself and as your memoir, which is how you'd like to be remembered. Don't confuse it with a biography, which is just a pure description of your life.

Remember 75% of people who ask for raises get some kind of pay bump.So just ask.
And if they say it’s not possible, ask for a timeline on when it would be appropriate. Get them to agree to a future date.
