Make a list of 25 career goals


Do some soul searching and circle the 5 that are the highest priority. Just five.

Take a good hard look at the 20 goals you didn’t circle. These you avoid at all costs. They’re what distract you; they eat away time and energy, taking your eye from the goals that matter more.

    1. It’s hard to acknowledge we have a limited amount of time and energy to pursue everything and that we gotta prioritize. I still am casting backward glances at those 20 other goals/wishes!

    1. GIRL, it was so good to see you in Houston. Not nearly enough time to really break everything down… Thank you for this supportive response–can’t tell you how much it means to me. xo
