Career Plan

Mr. John Cash


March 26, 2007

In addition to developing my career plan in specific yearly increments, I must also recognize several other factors important to turning a successful plan into a successful career. I must understand the reality of planning, how being a good leader and mentor for shipmates to follow.

I must realize that planning is the cornerstone of success in today's Navy. I must ensure that I set the example for both Officers and Enlisted men and women to follow. If I plan and manage my activities I will increase my probability for success. When I fail I must ensure that I don't lose from my mistake.

I must plan for both intensity and diversity. In my life, I must be good at something, good enough so that I can take pride in knowing that I am a valuable person and can do at least one thing well. I must choose and excel in one area; however, I must plan for some diversity as well. I must diversify my talents and assets to protect against catastrophic changes that may occur in my life.

I must recognize the power of time and knowledge. Sometimes, the better things in life are achieved incrementally-a little at a time. Adequate education, strong relationships, and perfected talents can all occur through gradual improvement. I need to be patient. Achievement of the better things in life also requires knowledge and experience. I must know something about the subject of my plans and seek out some experiences in this area. Planning is a process which requires the use of raw materials. I need knowledge and experience.
