Working almost 20 years with people has taught me many things. But one of the most constant things I hear from women is that they don’t know what their next move is. They want more, that’s for sure, but they just don’t know what or how to get there.
If this is ringing a bell for you, build a goals journal.
Many years ago, I came across a goals diary that I had written over 35 years ago. It was so pathetic! That list included stuff like health insurance, air conditioning, completing my undergraduate degree. I literally hugged myself to comfort the poor girl that I apparently was so many years ago.
But I kept on with those goals and kept knocking them off, one by one. Because the diary gave me clarity. I literally could read what I wanted. And I could also not have done that without the help of others. And other people could not have helped me if I did not let them know what type of help I needed from them.
So make a long long list of lofty goals, include the year you’d like them completed by, and let everybody know what they need to do to help you get where you’re going.
Cuz it’s your turn.
