Focus and politics – an Indra Nooyi note

“Focus on the job you’re doing, don’t focus on the next few jobs. Understand the company’s politics, but don’t play in the politics. And put your hand up for the toughest assignments. That’s when you’ll get noticed.” | Indra Nooyi

I thought this was fantastic advice.

It is so easy to get caught up in planning ahead and lose sight of the job at hand.

And, it is just as easy to get caught up in the politics. Understand it, but don’t play it is a note that is about as wise as they come.
