Another Handful of Tips 8 –
Career Goal Achievements
The five best tips to help you reach your goal
Your hardest decision will have been to decide on your ultimate goal. Then you must motivate yourself and, if necessary, commit to many years of study, self development and hard work.
1. Plan your working life
Draw up a flow chart of your proposed career and plan the steps to your ultimate goal.
Break your plan into short and long term steps for your professional career and short and long term personal goals.
Be ambitious but realistic.
Winners are the people who develop strong self-belief and self-motivation.
2. Break your long term plans into smaller possible activities
Set annual goals and then monthly tasks. Work out a realistic timetable and try to keep to your agenda.
3. Share your goal
Discuss your plans with the people you trust, such as your partner, your mentor or sympathetic colleagues.
4. Review progress regularly
Write your ultimate goal in your diary, calendar and smart phone so you have a constant reminder.
Check regularly to make sure you are making good progress.
5. Discipline yourself
Get into good working habits so each achievement is a further step towards your goal.
Focus on your future.
For example, “I plan to master the skills I need and to save enough money to establish my own business by the time I am 45.”
The more you think about your goal the more likely you are to become strongly motivated to reach it.
