  • Select a skill.
  • Divide the skill up into smaller, manageable tasks.
  • Reflect on what you’ve learned and what you still want to accomplish.

  • Rely solely on your boss for advice — you may want to involve someone who isn’t responsible for evaluating you.
  • Assume it’s going to happen overnight — it usually takes at least six months to develop a new skill.
