Have you heard of an S curve or a bell curve? The bell curve is used to study a lot of topics like product lifecycle, marketing, quality control, statistical analysis, and so on. I am going to apply the same concept of the bell curve to a career. In this case, we don’t want a situation where we get into a decline phase or the death phase. So, let us split the Bell curve vertically, and that’s what gives you an S Curve.
I would like to use metaphor of a Mountain for explaining career or career growth. A career is like a mountain that you climb to go up. Career accomplishments will elevate you in terms of achievements, earning, and so on. However, this is based on multiple factors, such as skillsets. Very few people reach the pinnacle of their respective career mountain. A lot of people lose hope halfway, a lot of people are not able to sustain the demands of career growth.
