In horse racing circles, people like to say a horse can’t win a race at the start but they certainly can lose a race at the start.
New sports career jobs can be the same way. It’s usually a better idea to make a conservative start and make sure you’re progressing as opposed to taking chances in order to race to the lead. The second approach could later require backtracking.
Settle into your new position. Make sure to do an excellent job on the required work before trying to put big changes or new ideas in place. Make sure you talk with your boss and co-workers to make sure you understand your responsibilities.
Doing the basics—and doing them very well—is the best way to get started in a new sports career position. You’ll be working hard but your work will be focused on your basic duties while learning how the company functions on a day-to-day basis.
