Everyone should have a ‘career mirror’ to be successful — here’s what that is

You need to have a “career mirror” to point out those things that you could miss, like are you happy? Do you seem that you are overworking yourself? The person should know you well. You need someone with a lot of empathy, so they are able to pick up on your cues, but honestly you need to develop your own self awareness. You should rely on your career mirror as a back up, but developing your emotional intelligence will help you the most to know when things at work are going good or you need changes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Friendly outsiders, a career mirror, can help you recognize when you’re happy or unhappy in a situation can be valuable.
  • A good career mirror is someone very perceptive to emotions and preferences in others.
  • Talking with someone else about what you feel, or what they see in you, often leads to good outcomes.

“Consider a career mirror a sort of “backup” for when your self-sensors aren’t working at full capacity.”
