As John Lennon once wrote “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”
Make sure you play an active role in your own career. Don’t let your career drift through inaction or simply because you have reached a plateau.
People think about business strategies but rarely do they think about career strategies. Most people would apportion luck and timing to a lot of their career fortune, however you can stack the odds in your favour!
This month…What is your next career goal?
Think about the next step in your career. If it is a certain status then think about how and why that will make you happy.
If it is a certain type of work environment, specialisation or responsibility then again think about why that is important to you.
If you are looking for a set figure in terms of income again imagine what it would be like to achieve that and how and why that would make you happy.
Take 10 minutes out of your day to day dream about the future, what would you like to see happen and why is that important to you? How would your life be improved by having that happen?
Now think of 3 positive steps you can make towards that future goal… do them this month!
You may not quite achieve the goal but you will be closer just by having a plan of how to move forward.
If you need any help or advice in taking those 3 positive steps then let me know, I’m always happy to have a chat.
