Now that we are in a new year (wow, it is hard to believe it is 2018), I want to ask a simple question. With what you are trying to accomplish at work or in your career, what is your biggest challenge? Is it something only you can deal with or is it something that someone can help with? Would you consider this challenge a personal challenge for your own career goals, or is it a challenge that you are trying to solve to further your employer’s objectives?
For me the answer would be something like this–
- Biggest Professional Challenge–distractions
- Who can help with this–mostly me, but my employer certainly doesn’t help and probably doesn’t truly understand the efficiencies that could be gained.
- This is a personal challenge–but my employer could certainly reap the rewards if I could improve in this area.
I wouldn’t necessarily consider this my resolve for 2018. However, it is certainly an area that I will work hard to improve in this new year.
What are your challenges? Maybe I could help. Maybe it could even be interesting enough to be a new distraction that steals all my attention and becomes a new area of complete focus [would that qualify as solving my problem of distractions? ;-)]
