It's time to reflect
The end of the year is a wonderful time to reflect on our lives, including how we feel about our career. While in my usual posts, I try to provide actionable advice, in this holiday season post, my advice is to sit back and relax. In a relaxed state, your mind has time to absorb everything you’ve experienced throughout the year, allowing you for some mindful reflection.
Here are some things many middle managers reflect about around this time of year:
1. What’s your overall goal for your career? Can you express it in one sentence?
2. Are you satisfied with your work-life balance? Are you enjoying both?
3. What kind of opportunities outside of work might help you become a more well-rounded person?
4. What could you do to help others?
These are just examples of questions to consider. I think that you get the idea - concentrate on both the big picture and thinking a little bit outside the box. So grab a mug of something warm, sit back, and reflect.
Wishing you a very happy holiday season.
