Taking stock of your work life

Clear your path to success at work

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been focusing mostly on your personal life. Now, let’s take those same tools and apply them to your work life.

This week’s task is to review the points below and apply them to your job and career.

  • What successes did you have at work in 2014? What positive things happened?
  • What was left undone at work that you should have done? Is there still time to do it? If not, now is a good time to forgive yourself, cross it off your list, get it off your mind, and move on.
  • Get the Nerve™ to have conversations with colleagues, supervisors, managers, or leaders at work that need to happen. Tell them how much you value them. Clear the air with people you may have locked horns with before.
  • Identify your priorities at work in the short term and for your career over the long term. Are you in the right job? Are you in the right organization? Are your priorities at work aligned with your priorities for your life? Are you living those priorities?

These are not the easiest tasks to do. Indeed, you may find yourself challenged by them. It’s difficult to say positive things to and about people you may not care very much for. It’s hard to take a measure of yourself and see where you are at this point in your life.

Remember, these exercises are about clearing the path to your own success.

This is about setting yourself free so you can get what you want and need in life. Anger, hatred, jealousy, gossip, and other negative feelings and behaviors will serve to keep you from your success.

Are you currently where you want to be and need to be?

Get the Nerve to face the brutal facts about work.
