2010 Project You Review


Project You Review in Today's Financial Woman
Well 2010 as a career year is pretty well done and dusted. If you're like me there are still presents to be bought and wrapped, stockings to be stuffed, and turkeys, puddings and other treats to be cooked and devoured. And then there are the plans to be made to celebrate New Years Eve. It doesn't leave a whole lot of time left to review how your career development has shaped up in 2010.

Now is the time to spend with family and friends - and to take some time out to re-energize and recharge. There will be plenty of time to review 2010 when you are making your New Years resolutions and plans for the year ahead.

As I wrote in the latest issue, The Round Up, of Today's Financial Woman magazine, reviewing Project You - and how your career development is progressing - needs to be treated with the same focus and importance as you would treat any project you are assigned to work on at work.

In that article I outline some last minute things you can do in the closing days of 2010 to kick some goals and put yourself in a good position for next year. These ranged from setting up some networking coffees to approaching a possible mentor. Time is running out for this year now, but if the approaching Christmas break and good will and cheer in the office does provide just the right opportunity to say "can we catch up next year for a chat/coffee?" take it, suggest a time and lock it in yours (and their) diary!

For everything else, we can leave it aside for a couple of weeks (but then we will get serious!)

Enjoy this week!

P.S. Sorry this is so short but I have to go get my Christmas cake out of the oven!
