They say hindsight is always 20/20. We make the excuse that we were young, naive or the pertinent information was just not available at the time. Going forward how do you implement your new found knowledge of the world?
Sharpen your skill set. Instead of reactive become pro active. Anticipate moves by understanding who you are working with. Know. Know who you surround yourself with. Take a fine tooth comb to who you interact with while at work and play. What do you talk about? What activities do you partake in? What do THEY talk about and partake in? How are these topics/activities shaping you and what reactive/proactive moves are you making?
Remember this IS a test.
