While many new year’s resolutions revolve around personal matters, it’s just as important to make professional resolutions as well. Though many individuals strive to meet professional goals every month of the year, the start of a new year just might be the perfect motivation to make big changes. If you’re looking to be back at work after the holidays with a fresh perspective and a new set of goals, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five resolutions to help you get the most out of your career in 2016. Get organized Being organized is a crucial element to success whether you’re looking for a new position, starting a new job, or making the effort to further develop your skills. To do this, evaluate which aspects of your life could use a little tidying up. This can vary from person to person, so while one professional might benefit from utilizing a daily planner, another may need a more comprehensive electronic system in place. Once you’ve assessed your needs, taking a few minutes a day to track your progress can make reaching your goal easier. Network more effectively Networking is a useful tool for every professional, not just those who are actively seeking a new job. There are many different methods of connecting with others such as alumni, networks, professional websites, company events, and career fairs, so take a moment to evaluate your current methods and assess if there is an outlet you’ve been neglecting. By varying your networking approaches, you may just be surprised by what opportunities you uncover! Identify past mistakes and fix them In 2015, were there any workplace blunders or mistakes you wish you could have avoided? Well it’s a new year, so give yourself a fresh start! First, evaluate what about your year went well and what could have used a bit of improvement. It may be tempting to want to fix multiple issues, but giving your full attention to one aspect of your career is not only less stressful, but more realistic. Next, make a plan to be conscious of what you’d like to fix. Being aware of what you’d like to improve is already a big step in the right direction. Brush up on your skills When was the last time you went to a professionally relevant seminar or took a class to progress your skills? Between work, family, and friends it can be difficult to carve out the time to hone your skills. However, if you’re looking for a promotion or possibly a different job this year, making time to become more knowledgeable in your field can boost your marketability and performance. If you’re feeling a little rusty in any area of your professional life, now is a great time to make improvements. Set one big career goal and meet it One of the best ways to get motivated for the new year is with one overarching resolution. While this may seem daunting, assessing what yours should be is actually quite easy. Start by reflecting on the areas in your professional life that could use some improvement. Next, determine what is realistic for you to accomplish. While we’d all like to double our salary or get a major promotion, knowing what is feasible for you to accomplish ensures that your goal is manageable. Lastly, make a plan of action. Breaking down your big goal into smaller ones may make the process of reaching your objective less daunting.
