Welcome to Day 24 of MyJobMag 30 Day Work Challenge. The 30 Day Work Challenge is designed to help you get your footing solid either you are starting a new job or as a new manager. You can tweet at us @myjobmag to let us know how you are doing or if you have any questions.
As we begin to gradually wind down on our work challenge, remember its Day 24 today, I want to challenge you to always assess your goal. You have learned how to set smart goals and what they are. We encourage you to also look at your goals during our lesson 16 but again it is important to stress that setting goals are not the main aim. The aim of setting work goals or any goal at all is to achieve them. By the way, you can read this article on how to set and achieve your career goals. You will also see good examples of what kind of career goals you should set.
When it comes to goal reassessment, there are three sets of people that interest me. Those who once they set goals work dogmatically on them, never looking back, never reassessing ( These guys are amazing but might be missing out on some crucial element that can help them achieve their goals better). This type is good but maybe not good enough. Then there are the second people on the other spectrum that once they make a goal, they find it hard to commit to it and rarely do anything at all about their goal (I hope you are not in that category).
However, there is a third set of people I want you to emulate. Those who constantly assess their goals, how close they are to achieving it, what variables are changing that they should be aware of and knowing when to pivot if need be.
Which do you think is better?
Now that is all for today’s challenge. Join us on LinkedIn and let us know how you are faring
