Happy New Career

It’s that time of the year where we begin to set goals for the upcoming New Year.  We would passionately proclaim, “This is my year! I will lose weight!” or “I will find a job I love.” Then sometime around mid-January, that summer sun hits you. We go on holidays or find ourselves around a pool or on a beach sipping margaritas and enjoying time with our friends…you know, the usual necessary distractions.

How do you set goals and stick to them you ask! Find a quiet place and answer the following questions.

First: Review your long-term career goals.

Second: Review your list of goals for 2018. Of the ones that were accomplished:

  1. Did you take time to celebrate?
  2. What was the catalyst for achieving these goals?

Third: Of the ones that were not met:

  1. What challenges prevented you from meeting these goals?
  2. What’s one thing you could have done differently to get closer to meeting your goals?
  3. Were your goals visible?
  4. How frequently did you review your goals?

We hope these simple questions enlighten you to find your goals for 2019.

Happy goal setting !!
