We’re halfway through the year and our business consultants are really making great strides in hitting their personal and HQ Promotions professional goals. Everyone sits down at the first of the year to make a list of resolutions. We’ve been asking ourselves: How do you stay motivated to keep moving forward throughout the year? One simple way is to focus just on the next step in reaching your professional objectives.
Let’s say you’ve put a valuable goal on your list for the year, such as acquiring a major new assignment or qualifying for recognition. It’s a great goal for you to envision, but it’s also a bit nebulous. Once you’ve decided on your specific objective, the next thing you need to do is sit down and make a strategy to accomplish your dream. Perhaps you need to do some research first to better inform your plan or discuss with someone about the possibilities and requirements for reaching your goal. That’s your initial step, so go ahead and send an email, make a phone call, or put a concrete appointment on your calendar.
For those of us around the HQ Promotions office, once we have this research or information in hand, we are better equipped to make a plan of action. This plan has action steps and deadlines to make sure we keep moving forward towards our goals. People often stall out when faced with enormous challenges, but when they know what they need to do to keep moving forward, they are more likely to be successful.
