As you consider the direction you want your life to take in the new year, you must not forget your professional aspirations. Here are a few career resolutions for 2020.
Pursue Your Passion
First consider if you are in the career you want to be in and if it’s not, make 2020 the year you finally pursue your passion! Map out what this will look like. Do you need to go back to school? Find an industry mentor? Switch to a company that offers more growth potential?
Even if you are already in the career of your dreams, to remain competitive and be the best you can be, you must invest in your ongoing personal development. You can achieve this a variety of ways—including reading business development books, taking online development classes, attending industry events, and more.
Make More Money!
We don’t just work to earn a paycheck but getting paid is certainly a primary reason for doing what we do. Make 2020 the year you open your mind to making more. By simply opening your mind you will see opportunities that would otherwise go unnoticed. This goes beyond asking for a raise to freelancing part-time, interviewing with companies with higher salaries, or consulting.
Here’s to making 2020 your best year yet!
