What were your goals when you were a sophomore in high school? In college? What about as a brand new shiny college graduate?
I’ve always loved to make lists, so it should come as no surprise that I have had a list of life goals since early in high school. During my decluttering project I found a notebook that held one of these lists, and while some of the items are ones I have completed since 2003 (like getting my MBA and staying in touch with my closest friends), others are no longer goals of mine. And that’s okay!
The ladies of TheBBar posed two questions for this month’s linkup: What are you doing now to prepare for your future? And what do you think you should start doing to create a better future for yourself?
I’m answering both questions with one of the best pieces of advice I got in business school:
Revisit your goals often.
Your priorities are going to change, and you should be surprised if they don’t. You just have to remember that it’s okay to change with them. Who you want to be at 25 may not be who you want to be at 40. Over time you will evolve. Just make sure you are evolving in a positive direction, making changes to better your future. (I know, easier said than done, right?)
