A 2018 Career Resolution You Can Actually Achieve

December 19, 2017

Career Advice

Instead of creating a long list of resolutions, why not create a different approach for the new year. One that’s more achievable and one that you can’t ignore. The key word here is one. Simply choose one career skill that you’d like to improve. Then outline a small step you’ll take each month to improve that skill. Here are some examples.

  • Goal: Become a better public speaker.
    • January: Join Toastmasters.
    • February: Give a public speech to a small group.
    • March: Write a speech about something I care about.
    • etc…
  • Goal: Manage my time better.
    • January: Go to bed 30 minutes earlier and wake up 30 minutes earlier.
    • February: Work in the morning 3x/week.
    • March: Sign up for a hobby class that meets once a week after work.
    • etc.
  • Goal: Learn how to code.
    • January: Sign up for a class.
    • February: Build a 3-page website.
    • March: Offer to build a website for a friend.
    • etc.

What’s your big goal for 2018?
