Knowing what you want out of your career

A good strategy clearly articulates what the end goal is with a few ideas on how to get there. If you are clear on what you are trying to accomplish, it’s easier to pivot and change along the way to figure out how to reach the goal as you learn along the way.

 

It’s the same with what we want out of our careers, but when we don’t know how, we tend to think it’s not possible. But what if that was all wrong? What if knowing what you wanted helped you make decisions and increased your chances of reaching your goal.

 

In this week’s episode, you are going to learn how to get clear on what you want out of your career and what to do when you brain shuts it down because it does not know how that’s even possible.

How to immediately stop feeling overwhelmed

Think back to the last time you felt overwhelmed. Most likely you were worried because there was too much to do and  you were not sure where to even start. But when you feel overwhelmed, it literally keeps you from doing anything and creates more overwhelm.

 

I bet you’ve tried to power through and work your way through it, but overwhelm feels like a dark heavy cloud that’s always there. You can only push it away for so long until it really starts to get the better of you.

 

In this weeks’ episode, learn how to stop feeling overwhelmed and how to start moving forward.

How to commit when you disagree

Disagreeing is easy and something we do all day every day. Don’t commit just to let leadership have any easy excuse to get their way, but commit to keep moving forward quickly. Delivering on the project and failing fast gets you to your goal so much quicker than spending time making sure everyone agrees. There are so many variables to your projects that we’re never going to be 100% aligned.

 

Learning how to commit when you really don’t agree is easier said than done. But when you do, you can still enjoy your work, help deliver on the project, feel like you are adding value along the way.

 

In this week’s episode, you will learn how to commit not just at work, but when it comes to your career as well.

Overcoming impostor syndrome

Feeling like an impostor happens to almost everyone during their career. In fact, 70% of people admit they feel. Not knowing how to do something is not the problem. The problem comes from what you make it mean. If you’re worried you can’t figure it out, you spend a lot of time worrying others will find out to.

 

In this week’s episode, learn my secret to overcoming impostor syndrome. It’s not something that requires you to drag yourself through it. It’s so much better than that.
