While many start the New Year with intentions for their personal health and wellbeing, it’s also a good time to look at what career goals and aspirations you have for the upcoming year. In our blog we’ll lay out some ideas for how to create achievable career goals for the coming year.

Questions to Ask Yourself
To figure out what goals you want to achieve, you should reflect on what really matters to you. CNBC recently published an article with 7 questions to help form your 2021 career goals. In the article they recommended asking yourself:

  • What have you learned and accomplished this prior year?

  • What makes you come alive?

  • What do you not want?

  • What can you accomplish yourself?

  • How are you spending your time each day?

  • What would your perfect day look like?

  • What helps you find resilience every day?

Setting Short- and Long-Term Goals
After you have answered the above questions and become clear on what matters most to you, the next step is to establish your career goals for the coming year. Think about what you would like to achieve within the next 3, 6, and 12 months. When setting these goals, think about how your short-term goals will help you achieve your long-term ones. Some examples of short-term goals could be:

  • Improving your performance metrics

  • Getting certified in something related to your work field

  • Attending virtual networking events

Some examples of long-term goals you could achieve within the next year are:

  • Getting a promotion

  • Getting a new job

  • Becoming a subject matter expert in your field

We hope this inspires you to think about what career goals and changes you could achieve within the coming year.
