Changes You Need to Make to Set You Up for Success …
Change can be really difficult to make, especially when it comes to careers and jobs. When you are getting serious about making a change, you have to know what steps are the right ones to take. Whether you are looking to change careers or just start yours, you’ve got to understand the rules, know what you want and really get to know where you are going. Below, I’ve outlined some of the steps for success that will help you along in your career.
1. Start with the why
You want to first start with the why. Why do you hate our current job? Or, if you are just starting your career, why do you want to move into that particular area of expertise? You do not want to just start to steamroll into something new, you want to ask: ‘why do I want to do this?’
2. Figure out what it is going to take
This is a big one, if you are switching careers and you want to be successful, you’ve got to figure out what it is going to take. Is it a class that you need to take? Is it a license that you need to have? Figure it out and you’ll have a lot more success. Also, make sure that you have some type of plan in action, which we will get into next.
3. Make an action plan and track your efforts
Making an action plan might seem a little stupid in the beginning but you want to understand what your goal is and what your ideal timeline is to get there and that all starts with an action plan. You also want to track your efforts, especially when you hit certain milestones or you wrap up things that you need to in order to move forward.
Just these three steps will help set you up for success; now you just need to do it!
