​As we conclude on this series today, as a way of recap, we have discussed the following as ingredients of relevance:

1. Honing your skills

2. Good interpersonal relationships skill

3. Right Attitude 

4. Problem solving ability 

5. Rich network 
The last two ingredients are :

Extra Mileage disposition 

Ability to recognise your limit
Extra Mileage disposition: While you are encouraged to master your field very well, it is important to have working knowledge of other fields. Most employers want well rounded employees, not single tracked employees. You therefore need to read and learn about other fields connected to your job. It makes you command premium attention and value. Also have the attitude of persisting more than others. Stay alert when others get tired. 
Ability to recognise your limits: Sometimes you will be called to work in a committee where you are the most junior. Don’t state believing or acting as if  you are equal with the other committee members. Pay them their respect, know your limit. This will endear you to the hearts of your superiors and they will feel safe to ask for your opinion on matters beyond your level. 
In summary, you can always remain relevant if you are able to master these seven keys. 
God bless us all. 
Good morning!
