I know how scary is that? As I was writing the title of this piece I couldn’t quite grasp that this year, yet again, has almost gone. Which made me reflect; what of those New Year resolutions did we make headway with, what has been achieved and did we reach the targets/ objectives that we set ourselves?
On a personal front I can tick most of the boxes, including walking part of the Camino De Santiago, something I cajoled my brother into doing with me last Christmas, before we knew it we were on our way. We both felt a real sense of achievement reaching our destination with only a few minor blisters.
On the Camino a lot is discussed with fellow pilgrims about the walk being akin to a saying usually accredited to Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is not about the destination but about the journey”.
This got me thinking that our careers follow a similar path, in the beginning of our Careers very few of us know what and where we want to be, opportunity happens, hard work is done, luck is thrown into the equation and before we know it we are on a career path.
So, with the last quarter of 2018 in sight have you reached your career objectives or is there more to do?
Did you decide back in January that this was the year that you were going to accelerate your career or change your job and find yourself looking in the mirror and wondering why you haven’t done it?
