3 Goals You Should Reach for in 2020
As we begin the new year, many people are making goals to improve themselves. This is excellent! YouGov claims, “The most popular [resolution] is ‘exercise more,’ with 59%. Other popular resolutions include ‘eat healthier’ (54%), ‘save money’ (51%), ‘lose weight’ (48%) and ‘reduce stress’ (38%).” These are all great, but what about career planning? Setting goals for your career not only leads to better lifestyle but also ensures a level of steady income that could support your retirement savings. Planning for the right career is the basis of success in life.
Gain More Knowledge
Have you heard of “Knowledge is Power”? You should never stop learning! Make this the year that you make a goal to educate yourself for a career. Is there a profession that you have always been interested in? Now is the time to learn more about it! Starting your education and career training will help you find the success in life and satisfaction of enjoying from what you are doing.
Learn a New Skill
The start of a new year (and a new decade) is the perfect time to finally walk away from that job you hate and learn a new skill. If you have artistic talents and creative abilities then you should be learning the ins and outs of digital media, and pursue enrollment in LA ORT’s Digital Media program – especially since this is an in-demand career field. Or, if your medical skills seems to have hit a roadblock and you aren’t moving up, learning a new skill and gaining additional certifications, such as phlebotomy licensing, can make you a more valuable employee and open more doors for you.
Have a Growth Mindset
Ultimately, the best goal you can have for yourself in 2020 is to have a growth mindset. Having a growth mindset means believing you can grow and improve as a person by dedication and hard work. Ed Glossary explains, “Students who embrace growth mindsets—the belief that they can learn more or become smarter if they work hard and persevere—may learn more, learn it more quickly, and view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills.” Believe you can better yourself by adding to your skillset or taking courses to continue your education.
