7 Simple Questions to Help Form Your 2021 Career Goals

  • 29th Jun'21

2020 was an unusual year, teaching us numerous life lessons. Think back on all you've learned in 2020 and apply it to 2021.

Here are some questions that career counselors recommend you ask yourself to help you start and lead your goal-setting process.


Questions that help you set career goal 


  • What have you accomplished this year?

Take note of all you did in 2020 before you start planning for 2021. It might be establishing a meditation regimen or applying for jobs; in that turbulent year, any small action is deserving of recognition.


  • What makes you come alive?

Choose one or two major objectives to concentrate on, and then plan specific measures to achieve them each week or month. Consider moments when you're working on something that makes you feel relaxed and accomplished.


  • What do you not want?

People have a difficult time deciding what they want to do and achieve. So, think about what you don't want to do. You may already know that some jobs or working settings do not appeal to you based on your previous experiences.


  • What can you accomplish by yourself?

You should set objectives for yourself that you can achieve completely on your own. 

While your ultimate aim may be to secure a new job by 2021, it's a good idea to include milestones that aren't dependent on anything else.


  • How are you spending your time each day?

Make a pie chart showing how you spend each hour of the day. 

Examine the time pie chart to see if you're spending your time on the things that are truly important to you.


  • What would your perfect day look like?

Consider what your perfect day would entail, and then work backward to attain that goal. 

Think how you might incorporate your "perfect day" into your routine after you've defined it.


  • What helps you find resilience every day?

If 2020 taught you to let go of your original goals, 2021 would teach you how to maintain the resilience you developed throughout difficult times. 

Consider what helped you get through some of the most difficult days this year. Apply those lessons to your new year's goals.
