We often talk about our long term plans, but how many of us have actually written a five-year plan for our careers? Have you? No?
Take up this challenge: Create a five-year plan for your career.
The ultimate goal can be as specific as ‘I want to become the CEO of my company’ or as broad as ‘I want to be a millionaire.’
Now, think about the trajectory of how you will get there? Write down steps, which are nothing but short-term mini-goals. What will it take to achieve these short-term goals? Does it involve taking a course, finding a mentor or raising funds?
This will help you visualize your goals and set you up for ‘action!’ Now, get started with this journey!
You further have to do regular reviews with yourself every quarter, do course corrections and keep moving ahead. Dream big, set specific mini-goals & be focused on achieving them.
All this starts with you writing down your plans.
Do you accept the challenge? Write back once you are done with writing your five-year plan.
