In the video above, J.T. explains how much she loves a framework built by Steven Bartlett. As a career coach, she agrees that if you are continuously filling the five buckets (knowledge, skills, network, resources, & reputation) then you are setting yourself up for career success.

Why?

If you get caught up in your job focusing only on the paycheck and day to day work, you’re probably letting some of these buckets deplete. This becomes a problem when the market changes, layoffs/firings start to happen, and you need a new job. For example, if you haven’t nurtured your network for a few years and then all of a sudden you reach out to a connection asking for help, you might not be pleased with the outcome.

To set yourself up for success now and in the future with your career, you need to constantly be filling up your buckets. And when we say this, we don’t mean you need to spend hours and hours a day making sure your career is on track. All it requires is a few minutes a day to work it daily.
