Goals that are defined clearly and are precise help you measure the progress you are making and to motivate yourself to constantly going forward and do big things in your career. Without goals, your entire hard work may seem a pointless charade to you. Subsequently, to achieve satisfaction in your work life, you need to set concrete goals and must take action to achieve them.

Here are 5 tips from Florida Career College for setting goals to advance your career to the next level:

1. Set Reasonable Goals

Primarily, the reason why people are unable to achieve their goals is because they set unrealistic goals. For your goals to be a success, you should keep them manageable. For example, don’t promise yourself to land your dream job with the perfect salary on your first try. Instead aim to get several job interviews related to the kind of job that you would enjoy doing. This way you are being practical about your job opportunities, while still working towards getting your dream job.

2. Be specific

Your career goal should be specific. Clearly define what you want to achieve in measurable and quantifiable terms. This is important so that you may be able to track your performance and motivate yourself to work in the right direction. So next time, do not resolve to be a better networker. Rather work on building a single contact that is worth your while, or try a new technique of networking.

3. Set deadlines and milestones

Precisely set dates and timelines for your goals to keep track of your success or falling behind. Deadlines help you move in the correct direction, keep working to achieve the goals and keep motivating yourself in case you fall behind.

4. Communicate Well

Good performance is important to get noticed and receive appreciation. But, what is more important is communication to your superiors what your goals are and where do you want yourself reach with all your efforts. Try to create win-win situations for yourself and your organization, so that when the organization progresses you progress. Remember, managers cannot read your minds. You have to tell them exactly in what concrete manner you would like to be appreciated and also keep asking them for pointers to continuously improve your performance.

5. Go easy on yourself

Obviously, there will be times when you will get off the track or fall behind. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are failing. This just means you need to reevaluate to see what you are not doing right, reset your plans and then pick up your pace again. Remember, those who never quit, never fail!
With that said, career progress is not a job that just happens by chance. Rather, it is made possible by a well thought out, planned and worked constantly in the desired direction effort. So, set your goals wisely to reach where you want to be. And, meanwhile don’t forget to enjoy yourself through the journey!

Out with the Old, in with the New with Anthem Education

The New Year is a time for new beginnings. I know it sounds clichéd, but if there was ever a time for you to have an excuse to put renewed energy into thinking about what you want in life and taking that step towards becoming the person you want to be… This is it.

As I write this, there are only 3 days left (well, 2 ½ to be exact) in the year 2011. I don’t know what kind of year it has been for you. I would think for most people, myself included, it was full of ups and downs. But guess what? Life is always going to be full of ups and downs. The difference is how you approach life and your attitude.

I found this quote about New Year’s that I thought was interesting. It’s from a man named Bill Vaughn, a real estate investor and author. He says, “An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” I’m not sure I agree with him. I think you can look forward to putting the past behind you and making positive changes in the upcoming year.

So take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Wait, don’t close your eyes, you need to finish reading this first. Here comes the big question… What do you want?

Think about it for a bit. What do YOU want? What do you WANT? What…do…you…I’ll stop now.

If the answer pops into your head right away… great! I hope that you’ll spend 2012 going after what you want.  If the answer doesn’t pop into your head right away, no worries. Sometimes people don’t know exactly what they want. They just know that something has to change. Let me tell you, I’ve heard multiple stories about students at Anthem Education schools who walked through our doors not knowing exactly what they wanted, but knowing that they needed a change for the better.

What about you? Is education something you want? More than that, do you want an education that prepares you for a career?

If you answered ‘yes’ or if you’re still unsure about what you want, but are wondering if education could be the next step for you, I hope you’ll join us for an Open House on January 18th.

In the meantime, I leave you with some words of wisdom for the New Year from the incomparable Charlie Brown:

“Keep the ball low, don’t leave your crayons in the sun, use dental floss every day, don’t spill the shoe polish, always knock before entering, don’t let the ants get in the sugar, never volunteer to be a program chairman, always get your first serve in, and feed your dog whenever he’s hungry.”
