How To Realize Your Goals and Turn Your Career Wish-List into Reality!
Writing up your “goals statements” sounds like a chore, doesn’t it? But what if you treated your goals statements as a “career wish-list” to help you realize your goals and turn your career wish-list into reality? I like to write up my goals/wish-list annually, on my birthday. As a result, each year, writing up my goals wish-list gives me a great opportunity to reinvent myself (read: out with the old, and in with the new) and to realize my goals!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WROTE UP A CAREER GOALS LIST?
IN FACT, HAVE YOU EVER?
Pro-actively planning and managing your career goals, puts you in the position where you are no longer at the mercy of your industry or the job market! Think about that for a minute! As a result, YOU will be in charge of your career, not the other way around!
IDENTIFYING & MANAGING YOUR CAREER GOALS
How cool would it be, if you could actually manage your career, rather than have it manage you? No more uncertainty or instability. Gone will be the days where you throw everything at the wall hoping something sticks! Therefore, a real plan, that has teeth!
As a career coach, I help you identify the career goals that support your professional and personal values and aspirations. The following career planning exercise will help you figure out the career path you want to pursue:
Challenge yourself to make a wish-list of 12 goals you’d like to realize. Each statement should reflect your dream job or wish-list. Ie., things you’d really like to do at this particular stage of your professional life. Add in some personal goals. Professional development goals. Work/balance goals. Health goals. If money were no object, what would you really like to do?
I would like to own a small production house, creating X content for X audience.
I would like to be a consultant in communication for municipal governments.
I want to produce a YouTube or Podcast series showcasing…(insert passion project!)
I would like to coach young professionals and help them build successful careers.
I want to build my knowledge of/take a course in X……
Finally, when you’re done, send your list along by email. I’ll then show you how to prioritize each of your goals into short- mid- and long-term themes, identify any professional development you need to get there, and help you build an easy, effective schedule and timeline to reach your goals.
As a result of identifying your career goals, I can easily guide you to realize them!
