Long-term personal and professional goals are essential when it comes to setting overall targets. But in the short term, a personal goal, such as starting a family, may take temporary precedence over long-term aims such as running a business.

Setting Goals

Write down all your goals and then divide them into long-term and short-term, personal and professional. Consider whether your goals are realistic: while you cannot change your physical attributes, you can learn new skills at any time. Think about new skills you need to acquire to achieve the goals you have set.

As the traditional idea of one job for life disappears, you have to update certain skills in order to remain employable, and this means your professional goals can be richly varied.

Finally, set a timetable – decide when you would like to achieve each of your goals.

Planning career Goals

To help you achieve your goals, it is important to make long-term and short-term career plans that you can bear in mind as you plan your use of time from day to day. You may find it useful to write down your experience, skills, and qualifications. As well as work, you may have acquired valuable management experience from running the home or looking after siblings. Looking at these skills and experience, list all the careers to which they would be relevant.



  • Break down long-term plans into weekly and daily actions plans.
  • 2. Draw a flow chart of your career, and plan where you want to go next.
