Midyear Goals Review - Part 1

Questions This Guidance Answers: 
  • How do I assess my achievements?
  • How do I find time for goal assessments?
  • How do I communicate my progress?

This cast recommends reviewing our annual performance goals at midyear.

We've said many times that good management is boring, repetitive, unsexy, unpretty. Most of all, good management is NOT dramatic. Drama is for the movies, and they don't make movies about management, right?

Careers are different, though, right? What we all remember about our careers ARE the dramatic moments. The big promotions, the great new job offers, maybe even coming in at the last minute.

NO. Good career management is ALSO boring, repetitive, unsexy, and unpretty. The fact that we remember the drama is just proof that our memories are emotionally anchored. All those dramatic moments are just like Slam Dunk meeting successes. How do Slam Dunks happen? Long before, during the Pre-Wire.

And here's another of those preparatory steps that make for undramatic – and successful – careers: reviewing our annual goals midyear and making the necessary adjustments. It's SO simple, and takes but a few minutes.

Technical issues

Is it me or are others having problems with the premium content links for *this cast only*?  I can access the premium material from other casts, just not this one.  I've tried multiple browsers and when I try and access, it always takes me here: http://www.manager-tools.com/career-tools-premium-content

Thanks for the help!

 

This cast is a Career Tools

This cast is a Career Tools cast ... to access the premium content you'll need a Career Tools premium membership. I suspect that's the issue you're having.

Thanks

Got it...I didn't catch that this was part of the Career Tools series.  I just used the link from a recent MT news letter and missed that.  I'll be more careful next time ;-)

Thanks!!
