Do you have an executive career strategy? If not, you are not alone. Most executives tell us that while they are working, they do not take the time to reflect on their past or their future. They float through the stream of career-life, going wherever the current carries them. Most of them eventually wind up in some unplanned and likely unwelcome shore.
You have been too busy working hard and trying to survive. Planning your next career move or developing a long-term executive career strategy that will lead to your personal financial security can easily end up on the to-do list that never gets done. Now is a great time for you to stop, step back and take stock of your own career planning. You may discover that you want to change industries or jobs. You may find that you wish to change careers.
Take at least a few hours and devote them to yourself and to planning your career strategies. Think about the things that you really want and why. Stop and analyze where you are in your career goals and think about whether a career change is something you should consider or not.
