Hi Jesse, thanks for your comment. I can see what you mean when you mention hard work and knowledge as indicators. And knowledge is exactly what I touch on in my blog post. When someone has come to the realisation that no matter how much they’ve learnt so far, the stuff that they don’t know still, by far, outweighs the stuff that they do know, then rest assured that person is on the right track and it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing.
I know it sounds simple, but I’ve noticed that this type of realisation is hard to find in people in the corporate world. So many are too busy trying to appear perfect as if they know it all, when all they’ve really done is merely scratched the surface.
