A Goal without a Plan is just a Dream

Where do I start??? At the beginning of course!

That’s the question I am asked the most, “Mary, where do I start?” Followed by, "How do I know what career path to take?"

Don’t be freaked out if you don’t know where to start. Most of us (me included) didn’t know where to start either - we just knew that we needed to shift gears and find a new career.

So if your contemplating a new career and aren’t clear where to start here are some questions to guide you.

  1. What do you enjoy doing/seeing/partaking in/ at your current job?

  2. What three things do you absolutely hate about it? (it’s important to be clear on what you don’t want, as much as it is important to be clear on what you do want!)

  3. Leave the money thing out of the equation- If you could work in any field/organization/job answer these questions:

    1. Where would it be?

    2. What field would it be in?

  4. Would you be an entrepreneur or business owner?

  5. Why? What pulls you towards that field/organization/career

  6. Where are you at currently in your career that is signaling this need for change? What changed? Family? Sickness? Education? Structure?

  7. Write down your goals for BOTH your PERSONAL and PROFESSIONAL life.
