10 Rules for Career Success according to Richard Koch

Kennesaw, GA – Richard Koch is a Brit that I have written about before. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Koch

“Everything you want should be yours: the type of work you want; the relationships you need; the social, mental, and aesthetic stimulation that will make you happy and fulfilled; the money you require for the lifestyle that is appropriate to you; and any requirement that you may (or may not) have for achievement or service to others. If you don’t aim for it all, you’ll never get it all. To aim for it requires that you know what you want.” – Richard Koch

This post is written for a special person who will know that this article is for them.
