Hello, hello! This is the first post of 2020 and I’m excited to start blogging again. It’s a new year AND a new decade so I wanted to kick things off with something motivational. I’m assuming you’re reading this because you’re a career woman who’s hoping to do big things this year. So! Here are 20 things you can do to help you smash your career goals over the next 12 months.
- Write them down
It’s been proven (like, factually proven) that you’re more likely to do something if you write it down.
- Create a vision board
For those who are more creative and visually driven, a vision board is a great way to plan your career goals.
- Be intentional
Work purposefully, deliberately and diligently.
- Speak about them
Tell your friends, family and colleagues what it is that you’re aiming for. You never know who may be in a position to help you.
- Take risks
Let go of your fear of failure.
- Start today
No more procrastinating.
- Remain consistent
Get into the habit of routinely doing the things that will benefit you.
- Stay motivated
It can be difficult to commit to the things that you’re struggling to obtain. Hang in there.
- Practice discipline
Keep your eye on the prize and sacrifice what you need to in order to smash your goals.
- Review your progress
Check in with yourself every quarter to assess how far you’ve gotten.
- Be honest with yourself
It’s OK if you need to switch things up, stop doing something or introduce something new to your repertoire.
- Work your ass off
As the saying goes: Do what others don’t to get what others wont.
- Think smarter
Work hard without working yourself into a frenzy, by which I mean think of smarter ways to work more effectively.
- Continue to learn
Knowledge is power. Arm yourself with as much of it as possible.
- Expand your network
Putting yourself in the right places with the right people could be the key to more success.
- Put yourself out there
You may need to become the face of your business in order to better connect with consumers.
- Shout about your accomplishments
Why would somebody want to take you on or push you further if they’re not aware of the amazing work you’ve done?
- Seek mentorship
Find someone who’s successfully doing whatever you’re aspiring to do who can offer you some nuggets of wisdom.
- Believe you can do it
YES. YOU. CAN.
- Don’t settle
Refuse to accept anything less than what you’re aiming for.
Happy New Year everyone! May all your career dreams come true in 2020 🙂
