Not sure if you’re doing well in your career?

People will give you tons of career advice that are not necessarily true. Be it like, don’t leave the office before your boss does and many other such much accepted opinions about what is bad for your career.

Here are 9 things that aren’t terrible for your career:

Speaking up about problemsspeak up

You need to embrace the idea of having difficult conversations to get what you need. Instead of backing off in fear, you’ll learn to handle tough situations while treating people with dignity and respect.

A bad performance review

Lacklustre performance is not a career ender, you must show you can take feedback and respond proactively to it.

Crying at work

Sometimes showing you’re upset can actually move you forward. Some well-placed anger has its place. One study found that expressing sadness can even help you in negotiating.

time offTaking time off

Working without a let-up is a bad habit. It can traumatize the life that you’re working towards. Studies suggest not taking enough vacations can ruin your health, happiness, relationships, productivity and prospects for a promotion.

Being bypassed for a promotion

It pains when this happens, but this is the time you have to show your brave face and dogged determination. Also taking notes so that this doesn’t get repeated.

Taking a lateral turn

Just because you’re not moving seems like you’re not growing. That is not true. Moving laterally is an expansion of your portfolio and can be used in situations of a toxic boss, change of place or a pure experiment.

determinationFaking it until you make it

It is more about pretending to self that you can do it, pumping up the confidence that you have the ability to take up challenges as opportunities.

Leaving your job without having another lined up

Sometimes doing the above makes sense. However, cutting off your income supply can be hard on your finances.

You might also feel the stigma attached to the tag jobless. But if you’re all the time exhausted with work, have limited time to look for a new job, you probably will not find one.

Taking a pay cut for a new job

A pay cut can actually position you better for the long term. It can open up opportunities. If you’re in a bad situation taking a price cut to leap to a competitor is fair.
