Being skilled or competent is obviously required in the work we perform on an everyday basis. We begin our career from a lower designation and based on our performance, we climb up the ladder of success.
Gaining confidence of the management, we begin to get handsome perks. Consequently, we also change our behavior towards our peers. People in the organisation unwillingly respect and flatter us, and sometimes we get blinded by pride.
These become hurdles in our path of learning and we get stuck in a particular place, thinking that we are accomplished enough. Self-gratification and pride makes us injudicious and unreasonable.
There is a well known saying that a frog knows nothing more than the pond it comfortably lives in. It just considers the limited area of the pond as its world. In the same way, we keep working in the same place with the same people around, having the same kind of work to perform daily. Although everything goes well for us, yet it creates obstacles in enhancing our skills.
In life, we should always be engaged in a learning process. As soon as we have nothing more to learn from a place, begin thinking of options. Go out and be challenged again.
