You may have ended up in this profession on purpose, or by accident, but have never thought about your long-term vision for where you want it to take you. Take time this week to really think it through and ask yourself these questions:
What is an ideal day for me?
What kind of life do I want to create for myself?
If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll never be able to figure out what steps you need to take to get there, or if you are even on the right path. Once you write down specific goals you’ll know what doors you are looking to open to get closer to where you want to go.
Written goals have always been a part of my process. I remember writing down that I wanted to be published in a magazine. I had no idea how I would do that but, I wrote it down. At the time I didn’t know anyone published in a magazine. Soon after writing that goal down I attended an industry conference and, as I sat down to listen to the keynote, I introduced myself to the woman I was about to sit next to. She happened to be the fitness editor at Shape Magazine. I knew this was the door I was looking for to accomplish my goal. If I hadn’t written that goal down, I might have met her and left with nothing more than a “Wow, that was cool.” Instead we exchanged cards, and afterwards I reached out and stayed in touch. Soon she asked me to send her some core exercises and featured me in an article on ‘strengthening your core.’ My goal was accomplished and I was featured in my first magazine! Since then she often contacts me for various assignments.
Revisit your “why.” Revisit your vision for where you are going. Remember your career/business should support your life, not the other way around.
