The Perfect Place to Start….

…is from where you are!

Wednesday saw the start of not only a New Year but also a New Decade.  How awesome is that!

As you navigate the first few days of 2020, what are your thoughts about what you want to achieve this year in your career?

Do you want to take the next step on your career ladder?

Do you want to THRIVE in your career and demonstrate to the world (and yourself!) that you really have got what it takes to succeed?

OR

Do you just want to SURVIVE the first full week back in the office without drowning under all the emails in your inbox and the items on your seemingly ‘endless’ to do list that you just weren’t able to complete before the Christmas Holidays?

Whichever of the above options best fits your current reality today, rest assured that it is OKAY.  

The perfect place to start is from where you are!

Whenever I start working with a new client, one of the first activities we do is a deep dive into where they are now in their career.  This is such a powerful starting point as it enables them to get a sense of exactly what their career looks and feels like in that very moment.

It also helps to create a sense of being back in control of your career rather than feeling like you are at the complete mercy of your ‘to do’ list and the demands of others!

There are a variety of ways to carry out this deep dive.  One of my personal favourites is the Wheel of Life (which can be easily applied to your career).  Click on the download below for an example.  I love this tool because of its simplicity and the visual representation it provides. It is fabulous for shining a light on exactly how things are.

Why not give it a go yourself this weekend and ask yourself the following questions:

  • What surprises you most about your Wheel?
  • If you chose to improve just one part of your Wheel in 2020, which part would it be and why?
  • What are you going to do next?

Make a commitment to yourself now, that 2020 will be your best year yet!  

Decide now, that this is the year you THRIVE in your career, not just barely survive!

If you would like to talk more about the Wheel activity or how coaching with me can help you take back control of your career, book a call with me here.

Wishing you an incredible New Year!
