Focus on the task at hand

I recently attended a talk by PNB’s chairman, Tan Sri Wahid Omar, who spoke about his career trajectory and where it has taken him. The one key point that stayed with me was when he said “Don’t worry about your next job, focus on the task at hand, if you work hard your reputation is sure to precede you” and it got me thinking, there is no better advice to give a millennial like myself. There are some days I catch myself prematurely thinking about my next move, my next jump and I figure, this is not productive thinking. Surely I could spend that time thinking about something else… like how to improve my current work. In another sense, it reminded me to live in the present.
