“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln
Early in my safety career I was stuck. (OK, it’s happened a few times since, too.)
I wanted to be the best. Not only the best, but to put myself in the best position to make a difference. But how?
Then I found it. In short book by Brian Tracy, “Focal Point”, he suggests using a gap analysis. Tracy writes one simply has to outline where you are today and you want to go in the future (skills, abilities, education, experience, etc.) and fill in the gaps. Thus the gap analysis.
Here’s what I wrote on that morning 10 years ago.
To be in the top-tier of EHS professionals I should:
-Get a CSP and an ARM
-Speak at a national conference
-Finish a graduate degree
-Add to the body of knowledge
I’m still working on it.
How about you? What’s your gap look like?
