Personal Goals: Energize Your Career in the Year of the Tiger
What are your personal goals for the Year of the Tiger? Are you looking to energize your lackluster career this year? In many parts of the world, people will be celebrating the Lunar New Year (some may refer to it as Chinese New Year). This year, the celebration will be on February 14, yes, on Valentine’s Day itself. In some of these cultures, many people like to check their fortunes in accordance to the zodiac year believing that certain zodiac signs will do better than others in certain years.
Personally, I take a more pragmatic approach. My suggestion to you, if your goals include doing better at work, you can emulate the finer qualities of the tiger. If you can do that you will automatically energize your career for 2010.
So what are some of the tiger qualities you can use in helping you energize your career?
Be patient and take deliberate actions. These actions must contribute to your career objectives. Do not waste your energy on things that do not help you meet your goals. For example, do not indulge in gossiping and procrastination.
Determine your goals for the year. What are they? Is it a pay raise? Is it a promotion? Or is it to increase and better some of the skills you are weak in? Regardless, make sure you define the things you want to achieve, and then focus on it.
I covered this briefly earlier. Once you focus on your personal goals; take deliberate actions in order to achieve it. Every action must contribute to you achieving your goals. The tiger does not waste unnecessary energy in its pursuit of its prey. Every move is calculated and planned even when it seems so instinctual. You should be like that too. Have a plan on how you plan to achieve your personal goals and how you can energize your career.
Start building a plan if you do not have one. Now! Take action. Nothing happens until you act upon your plans. Dreams come true when we act upon them. Goals are achieved when we put words into actions. Your personal goals are within reach if you take deliberate actions.
4. Determined and Strong
Be strong emotionally and physically too. Learn to control your emotions; the tiger keeps its cool when pursuing the toughest prey. It knows letting emotions control him will only mean distraction from the bigger objective. You should be like this too in pursuing your goals.
You can make the Year of the Tiger a great year for you. Emulate the finer qualities of the tiger in your personal goals and you will see your career energized!
