What do you wish someone had told you at the beginning of your career? by Yonason Goldson

Think three steps ahead. While I was teaching, opportunities came my way that could have better positioned me for the future. But I wasn’t forward-thinking enough, and I let those opportunities slip through my fingers. When I retired from the classroom to become an entrepreneur, the windows I might have held open were now securely shut, and I had to start from scratch. Connections, contacts, and circumstances that didn’t appear valuable in the moment would have proven priceless assets down the line. So keep your eyes on the horizon. Anticipating future possibilities pays off handsomely when the future arrives.
