Employees often ask me, “How can I continue advancing my career after I feel I’ve hit a job plateau?” They also tell me that they like who they work for and the work they do, but feel stagnant. Anyone who asks that question is a go-getter! How does an employee continue moving forward in her chosen profession?

Awesome article. I think “time” is the only thing that you can’t restore in this world but you can work it out so you will know what will happen in the next few minute(s). Same thing goes when your boss wants you to accomplish a report, if you’re busy doing extra things not related to your job, of course, you can’t make it. You should learn to follow rules and not get side jobs while working, in the end everything will fall on you. So if you feel that you need some help in keeping yourself productive try using a productivity software that can help you a lot to avoiding wasted time (such as visiting Facebook, Youtube, etc.)
