Let’s face it, CGs—the harsh reality is that a lot of Pinays find themselves settling for unsatisfying and unfulfilling careers. But while the idea of leaving your comfort zone to chase your dreams sounds intimidating, the chance to reach greater heights beckons.
It’s no secret Pinays have so much untapped potential. Keep reading to see how you can stop settling for less and take your career into your own hands!
Identify your goals
Sit down and think about what you want to achieve with your career. Once you have your goals written down, it’ll be easier to formulate a plan of action.
Pinpoint what excites you
As the years go by, even the most exciting job can lose its novelty. Think back and remember the projects that excited you the most. Do they all have something in common? Recognizing which aspects of the job you love can help reignite the flames of inspiration, which can help prevent burnout, too.
Write down your non-negotiables
Do you prefer managing your own time or following a schedule set by the company? Would you rather work remotely to avoid traffic, or do you love the creative energy inside the office? Pinning down your work non-negotiables helps you streamline your future choices and career path.
Plan your career trajectory
Now that you know what you want, how can you make it a reality? Make a five- or 10-year career timeline so you can plot out what you want to achieve, how to do it, and when to do it. It’ll be easier to work towards achieving smaller goals to ultimately get to your biggest one.
