Episode 59: 5 Big Career Mistakes You Should Avoid

Did you know the 200th greatest tennis player wins about 49% of the points they play versus the #1 greatest tennis player in the world wins about 53% of the points they play. The difference of being ok and being the best in the world is making 4% fewer mistakes, at least in tennis. Career mistakes can be just as costly! There’s a big difference in losing a job and being promoted. Sometimes success is more dependent making fewer mistakes rather than doing something spectacular. While mistakes are a part of the process, they can matter, and matter a lot.
