How to Set Career Goals?


Have Clarity

History has shown that people with a clear vision and ideal self have consistently found success in their careers. Hence, just like the thousands in the past, you need to find your clarity of thoughts as well. Ask yourself questions like: Do you like your job? Is this the best thing you can do? And so on to set ambitious career goals.


Goal Should be Challenging and Realistic

So, you wake up one day and decide by next year you will be the CEO of Tesla. Now, that is a challenging goal for sure, but it is more unrealistic. The point is, set yourself for challenging goals but simultaneously ensure that those are realistic and achievable. 



Being ambitious and challenging doesn’t get fulfilled on its own. It takes patience, perseverance, dedication, and above all, commitment. Commitment is like a mindset; when your perspective starts changing, you will begin to get driven away from your goals. You can start with a morning routine.


Focus on Feedback
