Set Career Goals
Develop that road map to your success.
Can you be successful in your career without setting goals?
Of Course. All of you that know me know that I am personally
dedicated to setting goals, revisiting goals, revising goals
and celebrating goals. None of this is a surprise that I am
sharing these thoughts. Again, of course you can, many have.
We all review at many junctions in our lives, this is another
way. I believe you can be more successful through goal setting,
most researchers agree. You probably are not reading this
series on career coaching.
A major component of career planning, mapping is setting
short term- 6 months out, a year, you decide what your
timeline is. Long term is often considered beyond a year
career goals. Once you imitate this process, another
component of career planning becomes reviewing and
adjusting your set goals. Your coach will teach and help
you with and through this process as your plans progress
and change—and develop new goals once you accomplish
your current goals. This is where the fun is, constantly
helping yourself grow and improve and celebrating your success.
Oftentimes, you are acknowledged by those around you
in the process. That is not the goal, but an end result
of assisting others reach their goals. It’s about joy.
