If you are interested in reading this book, it is no doubt because you either aspire to join the elite executive ranks, or you are interested in maintaining your lofty position, or lastly, you have suffered a set-back and want to come back with vigor. This book is your road-map for taking charge of your executive career and aspirations. You have the power to create significant positive change in your life. There are really only two choices to make when you approach those crossroads and that is that either you can change You, the “Me, Myself, and I” facet, or you can change It “The Challenge”. The most important thing we can do in life is have a plan. Our plan should be adaptable and that same plan will serve as the framework for our success throughout our lives. Don’t believe for an instance that your aspirations are not achievable because you would be mistaken. While it may seem that for some people you may know, everything seems to be easy, virtually handed to them on a silver platter, but the reality is that with the appropriate amount of concerted effort and strategic, albeit cunning maneuvers, we have the absolute potential to achieve everything we include in what I will refer to as your personal career progression project plan. The challenge you will master after applying this framework is to secure, maintain or reclaim that executive level corporate position.
