What are your work-life aspirations?
Updated: Jun 30
We're often talking about the challenges we have or are trying to overcome in our career, but it is our future aspirations that matter more. Instead of focusing on the hurdles have you taken this week why not take some time to think about what exactly you want from your career.
Taking time to explore what a great career looks like for you matters - it's time to focus on what you want so that your career is working harder for you. This is particularly important if you are a working mum for example - you want to make that time away from your little ones count, right?
Here are three tips to get you thinking on your career aspirations...
Identify three key words that signify what you want from your career? For me one of those words is 'choice' - the freedom to choose what you want to do and opening up more choices along the way, not only for me but also for other women.
If you could break all the rules and could do anything you wanted - what would that be? Describe your perfect career. Have an idea of what that actually looks like for you.
What changes can you make to your every day? How can you create more ease in your career to not only achieve what you want but also enjoy the process. What can you bring to your working week to add more ease and less burnout? It could be a ten minute activity to bring about rest or creating that 15-minute break at 11am to go for a walk with your coffee.
Remember it's about small changes. Take little steps often to help you move closer to your aspirations. If you want to find out how we can help you then why not join our live co-working sessions where you can take your first steps into building your career and personal brand strategy.
