6 Week Challenge

There’s always something special to me about starting a new year or taking on new challenges (I must get bored easily). Many people start the year with the typical resolutions; lose weight, get more exercise, etc., but they forget about other things that can be just as important.

What about professional goals or resolutions? What are you doing to help your career? Do you take time to read industry news every day? Do you study to increase your knowledge? What are you doing to improve your writing skills? What are you doing to reduce the number of errors in your work?  What are you doing to set yourself apart from your peers? Do you volunteer for extra projects? Do you go above and beyond the minimum standards or just do the minimum required?

I challenge each of you to set a goal and develop a career plan for yourself this year.  Instead of trying to “eat the whole elephant” at one time, take small bites. For example, we’re approximately 6 weeks away from the first day of spring.  What can you accomplish in the next 6 weeks?
