Visualize where you want to be in 5 years
So you want to go from your small home office to a real brick and mortar store front, or maybe you want to dive into your own start up or set your sights on that big promotion at work. Dreaming about it won’t make it happen; a realistic roadmap will get you on your way.
- Ask yourself fundamental questions like what you want to be doing or what you want your life to look like in five years.
- Review your current situation – what works and what doesn’t?
- What are your current strengths and areas to improve upon? What would be required to enhance those areas?
- Include research into fields where training, education or investment of some kind would help you achieve your plans.
- If the end goal seems too daunting, break it down into smaller steps that are achievable.
