If your work week is like mine, business has slowed down a bit. People are on vacation, emailed are far and few between and the phones are not ringing off the hook. This is a perfect time to take stock of what you have accomplished so far this year and where you need to focus your remaining time.
Here’s what I’m doing:
- Reviewing the goals I set for 2013
- Providing clear examples of how I have accomplished each of these goals
- Figuring out where I can do more
- Laying out steps to get me there before year end vacation hits
Before I started this mini project, I was feeling a little scattered. I knew that year end performance reviews were coming up and that I have not been following my own advice. But after going through and taking stock of what I have accomplished so far, I feel much more centered. I see which goal I have been neglecting and am now focused on it so that I have something to share with my supervisor when my review comes around.
How are you feeling about your year? Have you met each of your 2013 career goals?
