White-male-1871366_640From time to time, everyone should sit back and take stock of his or her career. Maybe you’re not yet a CEO (and maybe you don’t want to be), but you probably have dreams, hopes, and plans. Evaluating your career performance can take you one step closer to achieving your goals. These questions should help you determine where you are and where you need to go.

Start by looking back over the previous six months or so:

  • What are your three biggest accomplishments?
  • What new professional relationships have you developed?
  • What new skills have you learned?
  • What mistakes have you made (and what have you done about them)?

Now look forward:

  • What are your top three professional goals for the next six months?
  • What relationships do you want to develop or strengthen?
  • What new skills do you want to master?

The answers should help you set a course toward professional success.
