Realistic 2018 New Years Resolutions for Young Professionals

New year, new me? Have you broken your new year resolutions yet? How many times have you promised yourself you would change in the new year but have broken your resolutions by February? We are all guilty breaking some resolutions but here are three that we are taking in 2018.

As young professionals we sometimes feel overshadowed by the wisdom and knowledge of more senior professionals. This year I am trying to force myself to say my opinion, stop fearing the idea of looking “stupid”, and make sure my voice is heard. People will forget the mistakes you made but they wont forget the great ideas you continually bring forward. 

 

Spend More Time Reviewing Mistakes

It is easy to want to quickly correct and try to distance yourself from mistakes made at work but this year I want to work on learning more from them. Start asking myself what were the actions that lead me there, how can I correct them in the future, and what step can I put in place to keep them from happening again.

 

Start Celebrating Achievements

We are all our harshest critics and especially at work we can become overly critical about our performance. Take the time out of the day to celebrate the great work you were able to accomplish. Don’t be afraid to humble brag about that new awesome project or the presentation you just nailed. This year be proud of yourself and celebrate the work you do!
