Now that it’s the last week in January, have you kept up with your New Years resolutions?
Generally, we all make resolutions with the intentions of change and betterment for our quality of life in the New Year, but rarely to we keep these sometimes lofty goals. Whether your resolution was to be healthier and loose weight or spend more time with family, here are a few tips on how to make your resolutions last longer.
- Instead of making resolutions, set goals.
- Write down your goals and the steps it will take to accomplish those goals. That way you are able to stay on track throughout the year.
- Write down your small accomplishments and celebrate the small victories.
Just as you consider resolutions in your personal life, take some time to look at your professional self as well. Have you considered making resolutions for your career? Like our tips above, we recommend you set career goals, not resolutions. Before you get started on your career goals for 2014 ask yourself these questions…
- Are you happy in your current role?
- Are you looking for a better work/life balance?
- Are you looking for the right time to move up the career ladder?
To reach your 2014 career goals, start by asking these questions:
- Do you need to revamp your resume?
- Do you need to practice your interviewing skills to stay competitive?
- Do you need to put together a strategy for moving internally within your current company?
- How do you successfully transition to an entirely new industry?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’d love to talk with you to determine how we may be able to help you achieve your professional goals for 2014.
