Based on what I’ve observed, overwhelm is one of the main obstacles to moving forward – and with good reason! In the career space, most things are not immediate. A job search can take months, you may need to gain experience before you can be considered for a promotion, etc. You may think, what’s the point? Well, finishing a bite-sized goal is still a step forward, and the confidence that comes from it will likely give you the motivation to keep going.
If you’re still concerned you don’t have enough time for even small tasks, consider the following:
If you want to go to graduate school, but are completely overwhelmed with navigating the complicated financial aid process…call and schedule an appointment with a financial advisor – TODAY. That’s it. One phone call.
If you have always worked in large corporations and are wondering how you can break into the association industry…Google “association careers” and read one article or blog – TODAY. That’s all, just a few paragraphs.
You may wonder, what’s the value in completing such miniscule parts of a task when there’s so much left to do? Well, you’ll have more done than you did yesterday. You’ll know a little more about a topic than you previously did. Plus, when all is said and done, most goals are just a series of baby steps. I challenge you to think of something you want to do, and “start where you are” – TODAY!
