The most valuable trait in the job market

Conceptualization!  Being able to see the big picture and how each element including yourself fits into it, making everything flow together.   I tend to think of conceptualization simply as wisdom and I define that as how far you can see into the future and the consequences of choices in the present. 

When I was young the furthest I could see into the future was the weekend. As I’ve aged, the thought of what I will leave behind sits behind my thoughts and choices throughout the day.

  1. I like the idea of vision boards to help me see the future I want to make sure the choices I make today support that vision – and that helps me with my conceptualization!

    This frame of thinking also forces people beyond the trend we call ‘life hacks’ which only seek to get us past the moment.

    This trait will keep you in a job and keep you doing well at that job! It’s definitely a trait that develops with age but also, and perhaps more so, with a willingness to go deeper and be better.
