Let’s talk Goals! One of my favorites quotes is failing to plan is planning to fail. I have found that to be true in most facets of my life. That is more certainly true in my professional career. I have to have goals in order to know what I am working towards.
Goals, both personal and professional, are moving targets. We have to constantly be open to adjusting them based on what’s going on in our life. For example I knew that when I became a recruiter my ultimate goal was to move into management in my company. However, along the way I had an opportunity to take a sales role in my company. So what did I do? I readjusted my goal!
Now I am senior recruiter who does the sales side, or full cycle recruiting, and I am a Training Manager. I never lost sight of my original goal, but I adjusted to make room for a new goal. Which also means I needed to master time management!
