Don't Lose Sight of Your Long-term Goals

Don't Lose Sight of Your Long-term Goals

There is a lot going on in the world right now and it’s easy (and completely understandable) to get swept up in the recent news events. While all this is going on, many employees are returning to the office and trying to find some sense of normalcy again in the workplace. If you feel like you are simply treading water at the moment, only completing those necessary day-to-day tasks, it’s equally important to remind yourself of your long-term career goals and work towards them. If you are finding yourself a little stagnant at work, we have some suggestions to help change that.

What Are Your Goals?
If you haven’t asked yourself this question in awhile, it’s important to revisit what your long-term career goals are and write them down. Once you have your list, take the time to write down the small actionable steps you need to take in order to reach those bigger goals. Vincent Van Gogh famously said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Large/long term goals take time. You should map out how you are going to get there with realistic and time bound smaller steps.

Tie in Your Personal Values
While writing down what your long-term goals are, really examine and see if they align with your personal core values. If you don’t have a strong case and belief in why you want to achieve these goals, chances are it won’t be motivating enough to follow through. With this pivotal time in history, many are asking how they can give back and better serve their communities. You may find that your long-term goals align with this very question and having goals that go beyond benefiting only yourself can be more motivating.

Continue Monitoring
Success takes time! Don’t lose sight of your long-term goals and re-examine and re-evaluate what they are frequently. The more you monitor your progress the better it will be to see what’s working and what isn’t so you can adjust accordingly. Set milestones on your calendar and monitor frequently to see if you are progressing towards your goals as you thought you would. If not, you have to ask yourself if that’s really something you want and if so, what is hindering you from progressing towards that goal.

We hope these suggestions are helpful. It’s easy to get caught up in your day to day tasks and lose sight of your long-term career goals, but remind yourself that having something to work towards gives you a sense of purpose and drive. Write down your goals, take those small actionable steps to get there, and hold yourself accountable.
