If you were wildly successful this year, what would you be able to claim as your most impressive result? Whether you’re a CEO; an executive, leader, or manager; an entrepreneur; a successful professional; or just someone who wants to excel in your personal and professional life, knowing the answer to that question may be the best thing you can do for your career right now.
