New year’s resolutions
that might improve your work life!
It's a new year with new possibilities − and new resolutions! For many people, this means setting goals in their personal lives, but what about professional goals?
Here are some ideas for resolutions that might improve your work life in 2020:
Be less stressed
What helps you to reduce stress at work? Maybe it’s a new hobby. Maybe it’s arriving at work earlier to have some peaceful time before coworkers start arriving for the day.
Take more risks
Step out of your comfort zone and take a chance on new opportunities. Take on tasks or projects that are new to you, or suggest a process change that alters the way your company runs.
Build your network
Build relationships beyond social media. Go to networking events and meet new people. Learn more about them and get in touch with people who work in fields that you have an interest in.
Learn something new
Professionals should never stop learning and developing. There are plenty of seminars, further education classes and lectures offered online and in your community to fill gaps in your knowledge or acquire new skills.
Give yourself a break
Taking time off is important because it helps avoid burnout. Carve out time for friends and family. And don’t forget to take your vacation days.
This way you can implement your resolutions more easily:
It's best to plan in detail. This includes setting yourself realistic goals and taking small and achievable steps.
The more precise a goal is, the easier it is to achieve later.
Writing down the goals helps. Not only will they gain more shape, but they will also be easier to remember.
