I found this posting about You Are the President of Your Career and it just has so many important and good ideas in it that I wanted to link to it here. I think a lot about how to get better at what I do and a lot of the books I've read recently talk about these very same ideas. It is just so important to quit living in the past and take charge going forward. I'm going post another story shortly with the thought on helping those around you be successful to be successful yourself. It is just such a common theme through so many books and even the bible (do unto others...).
I wrote earlier about these very same points of taking charge here.
