3. On a career/work level:
It doesn’t necessarily have to be something to climb up the corporate ladder. It can be something to dig deeper into your professional dreams and goals. Maybe read a book once a month about something in your field of work. Or subscribe to a newsletter that’s connected to what you do. Or check LinkedIn once a week and read an interesting article. Or simply network and connect with your colleagues every once in a while to discuss the challenges and opportunities in your professional field.
The important thing is to incorporate something in one (or all) of these areas and make it something you can aspire to or get inspired to accomplish. Whatever it is you’ve read that you’d like to include in your daily life, make sure you write it down right now. In a notebook, planner, or your own cellphone. Because, if you’re anything like me, you know that there’s nothing quite as rewarding as checking something off your to-do list.
