Do you ever set goals for yourself? I used to work for a company that made me sit down annually to write down my career goals. It was a neat approach and it certainly made me focus on working towards those goals. I still take time to mentally determine what goals I want to work on in my career, but I recently decided that it is time to write them down on paper. I also wondered about writing down some personal goals that I want to accomplish as well. By personal goals, I am referring to goals that will help me grow as a person. For some people, personal goals may include weight loss, going to therapy, taking a cooking class, spending more time with friends, etc. I encourage you to take time to not only write down your career goals, but also your personal goals. Make sure you take the time to write out the steps that you will take to reach your goal. There is nothing better than being able to watch your progress by checking off all the things you are doing to accomplish your dreams. Happy goal setting!
