There's nothing more pragmatic than learning from mistakes made by others. Unfortunately, most people prefer to make their own mistakes. Here are 5 things that you can do to make sure that you don't mess up so that history doesn't repeat itself.
Don't make yourself indispensable: If your boss gets to rely on you too much it may sound like a smart thing to do - until you get passed for opportunities or project that would give you more exposure to the "outside" world. This can make you "invisible" despite all your hard work. Position yourself as someone who can be more useful for your boss by being "out there" and spreading the good word.
