Getting Your New Year's Resolution Back on Track

We’re about midway through the year already (can you believe it?). So, how are you doing with your New Year’s career resolutions? If you’ve found yourself a little off track, take some time now to evaluate how the last five months have affected your resolutions.

Ask yourself:

1. Was my goal realistic? If your goal was truly unattainable, you’re more likely to give up on keeping it.  Readjust your goal into bite-size goals. If you wanted to increase productivity, start small by organizing your desk. Next, tackle your email inbox. Create folders and tags for important emails and trash what you don’t need. Start making to-do lists with the 1-3-5 rule.

2. Did I make excuses for not following through? If you resolved to learn a new skill, join social media, or read more books, did you always tell yourself you were too busy? Investing in your career takes time and energy, so you need to set aside some time to make it happen. Block of a chunk of your calendar for career development, even if it’s in 15-minute increments, every little bit counts.

3. What could I have done to make my resolution stick? If you made excuses, stop making them! Sounds easy enough, right? So do it! If you truly were too busy, work on your time management. Or, learn to say no.

So what now? Make a mid-year resolution to get back on track. Sign up for that coding class, network during intramural summer sports, or head to the library – anything that will help you achieve your goals. Good luck, and we’ll check in with you in another six months!
