We occasionally hear this when someone wants to be liked or to just fit in.
Do you feel that trying too hard can actually hinder your career progress?
Is there such thing as trying too hard when it comes to your career?
Whether that’s in your job search, revising your resume over and over, studying for another certification exam, bending over backwards for your boss or colleagues, never saying “no”, and/or generally taking on more than you care to.
Or is it the fact that, regardless of how small the incremental gains are, some level of achievement is being made, and that’s what ultimately matters (without risking your health, family or emotional well-being)?
