Sticking to the Plan

Thelisa LavergneThe start of the New Year is symbolic of new beginnings, second chances, and “do overs.” And, by the way, there is no shortage of do’s and don’ts for creating New Year’s resolutions. The New Year is also a good time to reflect, reevaluate and renew career options and opportunities. However, the decision to start job searching, revamping old job search methods, going back to school, or taking a certification course all require a plan. Continue reading ‘Sticking to the Plan’

One of These Days . . .

If you are anything like me, as the new year starts, you spend time reflecting on what happened in the previous year – happy moments and sad; things you accomplished and those you didn’t; habits you picked up, broke, changed or improved.

Resolutions (Revisited)

Photo 57 (2)The New Year is a time when people look back and assess or “recap” their past experiences. We look at accomplishments and our lifestyle, but we also look at our past/current employment status.

In the past, I have lived through periods of end-of-year and New Year’s unemployment. During that stage of unemployment, I was filled with unnecessary anxiety and fear. Trying to achieve all of my goals simultaneously was overwhelming, and as a result I approached everything incorrectly! If I knew then what I know now, my New Year resolutions would have been much more strategic. Let me explain.
