Do you have a New Years Resolution? As we look forward to 2022, common goals include making strides in your current job, getting a promotion, or even starting a new career. Whatever steps you want to take, consider these tips for setting yourself up for career success this year.
Write It Down
Did you know you’re 42% more likely to accomplish your goals if you write them down? Simply making a plan and putting it in writing can help you stay more focused. It can also give you the head start to create subtasks of the steps you need to take to achieve your long-term goals. Think about what career goals you have for 2022 and write them down, regardless of how big or small they are.
Many people think about self-care as a way to pamper themselves, but that’s not the entire story. Self-care is all about managing your mental health. It’s common to feel depression this time of year, and it’s just as common to have anxiety or fears about starting a new job or asking for that promotion. Lean into those feelings and give yourself space to understand them to turn them into motivation.
Once you have a goal in mind and begin working toward it, be cautious about the bad habits of negative people that may sabotage your hard work. Boundaries help us keep us from going off in directions that aren’t a fit for our long-term goals. It’s okay to say no to things that aren’t in line with what you see for your future.
All of these steps put you in an excellent position to achieve your goals, but you don’t have to do it independently. While success is an entirely personal journey, plenty of people will help along the way. Make sure you maintain healthy connections with other professionals, supervisors, and coworkers. These positive interactions will help you in the future.
