While in your 30s you may be driven about paving your own path or carving your niche, focusing on what works for you.

Or, you may not be all for putting every little goal of yours within specific timelines. In fact, there are hundreds of things you don’t have to accomplish by 30 (or 40, or 50, or ever...).

But when it is about your career, there are some things that need sorting out, and getting started with them sooner always work well for you in the long run. Not because some career expert emphasizes that you must act before its late, but simply because of your professional prospects, and also daily responsibilities at work would be a whole lot easier to carry out.

1. Understand what your weaknesses are

While it’s always beneficial to determine what you’re efficient at, you must also try and figure out from early on about the things you’re not so great at. This is necessary to help you understand how you can make the best use of your skill sets and who should you work with to complement the skills and brings in the best results on the table.

2. Know how you can delegate the work

Nobody is infallible, and if you think you could accomplish everything on your own, then you are probably delusional. As you climb the ladder of your career, you will have to learn to differentiatebetween the things you should be investing your time on and the things you should leave to others.

And even more significantly, you should be able to figure out when you can bring in the other staff members, your partners, or colleagues to carry out specific work. 

3. Made a mistake? Take it in your stride!

Even the mightiest superheroes have shortcomings. You may have had a sterling record as an employee, but the chances are that you mightstumble multiple times in the course of your career. And that is just an integral part of your professional growth. Do you think Elon Musk or Sunder Pichai didn’t have their share of bad days? So you too can have the scope to take lessons (valuable lessons) from your mistakes and emerge as a refined version of yourself which will ensure your professional growth.

4. Supervise a campaign or a project

While this isn’t essential and not necessarily applicable in every instance, it would be helpful for you to have an opportunity to supervise a campaign or a project by the time you're on the verge of stepping into the 30s, as it will propel your professional and personal growth in the correct direction. Irrespective of the outcomes, it is the experience of handling this responsibility, which will allow you to achieve a greater position in the near future.

5. Feel free to step over your comfort zone

It’s probably said a million times, but the magic does happen when you step out of your comfort zone. While people in their 20s tend to be experimental and dabble into many activities at once, they are still in the process of metamorphoses and yet to be disjointed from their cocoons before developing the wings they need to forge ahead.

For people who are about to hit the 30 mark, it’s time to explore unchartered territories beyond their comfort zone, specifically for their career growth.

6. Learn to say no

Learning to say no is an ability that you have to master. More often than not, in an attempt to be on the good books of your superiors and colleagues, we tend to bite off more than we can chew. We even tend to tolerate what is commonly known as subtle exploitation, just to avoid any consequences.
