What is your vision for your future work life?
Follow the questions in the 3E’s ROADMAP WORKSHEET (page 20) to help you set your vision.
Now that you have a vision of your future work life, how will you get there?
Goals are a way to help you get to where you want to be and work toward what you want to achieve. A short-term goal is something you want to achieve soon. A long-term goal is something that you will achieve further in the future.
Why do we set goals?
Sometimes your final object or goal seems very large and hard to reach. By making a plan and breaking it down into small steps, you can see what progress you have made. You will increase your self-confidence and motivation as you accomplish one step after another.
Long-term goals give you a destination.
Short-term goals are the stepping stones along the way to reaching your long-term goal.
