A new year is here, and after the challenges of 2020, it’s no surprise many people are excited for a fresh start. If you’re considering new year’s resolutions, you may be feeling overwhelmed reflecting on the areas of your life you’d like to improve. Identifying small, actionable goals that will benefit you both personally and professionally will ensure your new year’s resolutions address many parts of your life, helping to make you more well-rounded in the new year. Here’s a quick breakdown of how you can categorize your resolutions to address both professional and personal goals in 2021:
There’s no denying that getting your professional life into gear is easier said than done. While many people wish for a higher title or salary, few fail to take meaningful action in achieving these goals. Being honest with yourself about what you truly want out of your career is the first step to advancing professionally in the right direction. For some, switching career paths is the best solution for finding a more rewarding job. For others, engaging in professional development can provide a foundation for gaining more confidence and marketability. Defining what professional growth means to you will help you formulate goals that align specifically with what you’re aspiring to achieve in your career moving forward.
Focusing too much on your professional goals and not enough on your personal aspirations can ultimately lead to burnout. Establishing one or two attainable personal goals is key to achieving a better work-life balance and improving your quality of life. For example, one of your resolutions may be to block off some time each week for a new hobby, such as listening to a podcast or reading a book. By identifying personal outlets that will help you de-stress, you’ll lead a healthier, more productive life. Without attaining personal health and happiness, achieving other goals will be very difficult!
Remember, investing in your personal life is equally as important as your professional endeavors. Establishing resolutions that address both these parts of your life will be essential for your physical and mental health as the new year gets underway. Most importantly, it will give you a sense of balance as you face new, unprecedented challenges and obstacles that lie ahead.
