Starting the year out right

It's the end of another year, and thus the beginning of the next one. Whether you had a successful 2009 for your career or not, now is the time to set a goal and make a plan for the new year. Take an hour over the next day and think about your career and where you want to go, what you want out of your career in the next year, or even next three.

Then make a goal.

A resolution to do something along those lines. It could be blog more (or better), learn a new skill, take on a new responsibility, or something else, but make an effort in 2010 to add something substantial to your modern resume. Add something that will build your brand and make it more attractive to your current, or a potential new, employer.

Something besides another year of work.

Yea I just done my plan, I think in the 2010 I will (must) do some changes in my career-resume! I'm afraid if I cannot achieve the best results that I want, but I will try since I believe in myself!

Good for you, Dugi. I started last week, spent a few days thinking of things, and have a few more now.

My goals are coming tomorrow.
