The more you learn about who you are as a person, the more fulfilled you’ll be able to be professionally. Having a strong sense-of-self is a real asset that can benefit you not only at work, but in all aspects of your life.
While many of us go through the annual ritual of goal-setting at work, too few of us take the time to define broader career goals. Articulating your career goals will help focus your day-to-day activities and long-term planning.
Commit to being a lifelong learner. Be curious. Ask questions. You may be done with formal schooling, but you are never done learning. Every situation you’re in, everything you do well or not well, creates a learning opportunity.
Get clear on what’s most important to you early in your career. Then stay true to those principles, even when it’s hard. As you protect what’s most important, it will get easier to keep doing so over time.
As you grow professionally, it’s inevitable that certain career choices will fall away. Focus on always having a viable Plan B and Plan C. Take the actions needed at work and in life to maintain these options.
