understanding our values, talents and goals and applying them to the pursuit of personal success.
Friday, 27 June 2008
As discussed in recent posts the definition of personal success incorporates more than just success at work. This is chiefly because career planning from the perspective of work alone can lead to unsatisfactory outcomes.
If you have ever started a job convinced that it was right for you but ended up hating it, you will need little more convincing that there is more to effective career planning than first meets the eye.
Exploring your values, talents and goals in the broader context of work and life creates the opportunity to aim for a more meaningful version of success.
If you have already considered the three initial questions -- What is important to me? What am I good at? and What keeps me going? -- revisit your answers in the broader context of work and life and compare the results. If you would like to follow up here on the blog please leave a comment with your findings or questions.
