Every month when I consider topics to write about in my guest column for the St. Louis Post Dispatch, I really consider the timeliness and relevance of what I can contribute. With (at the time of writing it) The New Year quickly approaching, I felt there could be no better topic than Career Resolutions!
Career resolutions are right up there with eating right and working out more as the most popular resolutions. But as with the other two, career-oriented resolutions often get abandoned before January is even over!
Why is this?
From my experience as a Career Coach and counselor, one of the primary reasons people don’t carry through their resolution is because they add a goal – something that takes time and effort – to their schedule without removing anything else from their life.
It’s simply not realistic to think you can add to your current work load without letting go of some of your current tasks. But this is easier said than done!
Which is why in this month’s column I lay out three things you can do to let a few things go to make room for your new goals – without shirking your current responsibilities!
Check out the column here, and share YOUR ideas on how to make room in life for new goals.
