My Professional New Year's Resolutions
Aim to learn something new everyday
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and continually stick to what you know and what you’re used to on a day-to-day basis. One of my professional resolutions for 2018 is to make an effort to learn something new every-day – it can be small, like a new excel shortcut, or finding a new approach to something in work, anything that requires a bit of practise to incorporate daily!
Build my professional network
In this profession, it’s important to network. Having a solid and diverse network will always make challenges you face easier, as you have people to discuss them with, and people to build teams with. One of my goals for the coming year is to attend more networking events and to participate more in professional collaborations.
Do one thing a day that benefits your soul
As busy season approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in deadlines and meetings and it tends to get a little overwhelming! This year, I will aim to do an activity a day for myself. This could be anything from a moment to meditate, time to go for a run, or an evening yoga class – something that isn’t necessarily work related, but something to refresh the mind and prepare me for another productive day.
