Are you meeting your career goals? Are you at least getting closer to them?
There is nothing more disheartening and discouraging than falling further behind in your career aspirations. I spoke with an eye care professional just recently who was struggling to get to work each day. The problem? She had fallen off the trail of her own path. After a few meetings, she was able to right the ship and re-incentivize herself. Today, she goes to work energized and ambitious.
So, how are you doing today? Do you need to get back on the trail of your career goals? Here are the 3 tips to help you.
First Tip: Clearly define or redefine your career goals. Write down on a piece of paper the position you would like and the money you would like to make. Write them down daily and review them weekly. Use a planner to help, but remind yourself each day what you actually want to accomplish.
Second Tip: Prioritize moments in each day/week that develop the skills you need to move towards your goal. If you aren’t making steps to grow skill-wise, then you aren’t preparing yourself to be ready when your opportunity arises.
Third tip: Find a group of supporters in your field with similar aspirations. Every person needs a support group or cohort that they can turn to when discouraged. Additionaly, if you are in a like-minded group, you will be able to encourage others when they are down.
These are just a few tips to get you towards your career goals. One thing for sure, you won’t hit your goals if you don’t define them and you won’t hit them if you don’t push yourself. However, following these three tips will keep you moving forward each day.
If you want to go a step further in mapping out your career goals, ProSight created a planner that enables you to do this each day.
The planner works like this. It breaks each day into 3-hour segments to help you fuel up and power down. But even better, it helps you figure out how to approach each part of your day.
Pick up a Streamlining Planner, and transform your day.
