what’s your goal?

tokyo_tower Dear Reader:  With the publication of my first book on SAP in 2003, I realize that I’ve now been teaching people how to get jobs in SAP for a more than a decade.  If you didn’t know this already, one of the things I’m most proud of is that rather than simply offering my readers information, I’m offering you my advice. There’s a big difference between the two!

Of course information you can just google or find on SDN, but advice – this is something more precious and something you need to hear from another human being. Somebody who cares that you get it right, somebody who actually gives a damn.

So when I give you advice about which skills to pursue and how to pursue them… how to interview, how to manage recruiters, how negotiate the very best terms of employment, or how to approach breaking into your next technology niche, I know you understand the value of what I’m offering. I’d like to think of our time together as two friends sitting down for a coffee – that’s how I view my role here.  I want you to know that you have a friend in the business that you can count on to give you good solid direction about your SAP career.

So what’s my advice for today? 

Now, more than ever, businesses rely on people like you and me to work as project managers, business analysts, and information technicians. There are more than 10,000 openings worldwide for people who know SAP.

So dream big. Have some audacious goals, and use SAP as a springboard to accomplish your dreams.  SAP is a wonderful career with plenty of room to grow, and if you’re dedicated to making a career for yourself in information technology, there is no better place than SAP.

And as always, I’m here to help.

Now here’s your assignment

One of the common traits among very successful people is that they develop very specific goals. Instead of “get a promotion” or “make more money,” you must set goals like:

“Get a contract as a SAP Project Manager starting on March 20th, earning EU100/hr plus travel expenses. Put EU50,235 in the bank, and use this money to spend the summer in Kerala.”

Another common trait among achievers is that they write their goals down. So take a moment, just a quick moment and write down your goal in the comments section below. What do you want to do? Where do you want to go? What SAP job would you like?  Let’s get there together.

Yours Truly,

Jim Stewart

P.S. The picture above – this is me achieving a long term dream of mine:  Visiting my cousin in Tokyo Japan.. Now onto the next dream .. and yes, SAP will take me there..
