Career Success and Life Balance


What's Stopping You?

When was the last time you considered your craziest, wildest dreams of professional success? For many people, it was probably a very long time ago. Others do so more often, but consider these dreams ridiculous, unattainable, and beyond their station in life. In both cases, the end result is the same: no action, and no movement to achieving that dream.

Dream goals help us set our direction and our priorities. They give us a benchmark for comparison as we write our to-do lists. And they give us something exciting to strive for: we become motivated. The flip side is that if we don't set dream goals, we can become indecisive, we don't strive for anything, and we become disengaged.

This week's action item: Consider your own dream goals. What is the one thing that you are more passionate about than anything else? And what's stopping you from achieving it? Answer this question, and you'll know what you need to put on your calendar. What's stopping you?
