It's better to work your way to the top and arrive prepared than to get a free ride to the top and not know what to do when you get there. Experience matters. Gather what you can along the way.
You may find yourself focusing too heavily on material or financial gain at this time. While this is potentially great for your finances, it may not be great for your social life or relationships. This is a time to share your good mood and good fortune with the people you love, rather than leaving them aside to focus on acquiring more. Avoid letting arguments over money come between you and your loved ones.
Gather and record all facts and figures associated with your success at work. These will come in handy when updating your resume or when it's time for a review meeting on your progress with your boss.
