Opinion: 3 Things You Can Do As Young Person To Stand Out Among Your Peers

HAVE A PLAN

Read forecasts on related industries and sectors going as far as 30 years, and choose your career path wisely. This will also bank on the country you come from, what applies in one may not apply in another, except you plan to relocate. We are now in the fourth industrial revolution, where industries are becoming obsolete, so be critical about the courses you want to study whether for an undergraduate degree or a Master’s.

INVEST IN A SIDE HUSTLE

Yes, this is how a lot of people in third-world countries survive, by having many streams of income. This will help you stay floating even when you are yet to secure a white-collar job or you are yet to start making a profit as an entrepreneur.

We have a Nigerian client who learned how to make clothes during his service corps year. Seven years after that, he has become a sought-after designer in his state of residence, with about four support staff. He combines that with his job at a tech company.

CONCENTRATE ON THE RIGHT THINGS

This is very hard to do, with so many irrelevant things imploring our awareness nowadays, varying from social media discussions to political affairs. However, if you stay concentrated and do only what is pertinent to your career growth, you will succeed, no matter how long it takes.
