Brainstorming your goals is a great way to start thinking of whereyou want to be. People work in different ways, but I always suggest puttingthings down in writing. It’s a great way to put your thoughts into words.Visually seeing the words can trigger more thoughts to help you start workingthrough what your goals might be.
It’s also good to think about your personal goals as well. It isimportant that your personal goals and your career goals align. What do I meanby that? If you are up for a promotion that will require you to relocate, but yourpartner just took a new job down the street from your house that’s somethingthat you need to consider. If you don’t have your personal goals written down,you may want to write at least 5 of those too. Then discuss them with yourfamily. When you figure out your professional goals you can see if they aligntogether.
