It is the start of a brand new year, and many are scrambling to complete their New Year’s resolutions. But what so many do not know is that resolutions can be about more than just our personal lives. The business world is continuously changing and in order for you to stay ahead in the game, then it is pivotal for you to have some job resolutions for this coming year!
Here are 6 job resolutions we recommend you add to your 2022 list:
1. Learn something new
The world of business is a vast one, and there is always something new to learn. There are new advancements and technologies around every corner ready to change the way we work. Therefore, learning about new things is a great way to stay up-to-date and stay on top of things.
2. Connect, connect and connect
Expanding your networking and connecting with a wide variety of people can open big doors for you. Other than the fact that humans are social creatures and connection is key to our survival, connecting and networking is just as important to your career. In fact, having a good network means that you have people to learn from, work with and have for support.
3. Start hustling.. on the side
Being an employee at a company and having a stable, secure job might be enough for some people. But if you are looking to grow and expand your career, then you will need much more than just a job. Starting a side hustle for yourself not only is good extra cash but it can also become your foundation to becoming your own boss one day.
4. Make smart investments
The world of investments is gaining more and more popularity by the day, and the earlier you get on its ship, the sooner you will reap its benefits. For instance, investing in cryptocurrency at this time might help you gain money quickly because of its exponential growth. However, if it feels too risky for you, you can still invest in normal stocks or even real estate!
5. Give back
Nothing feels better than the internal peace and satisfaction that comes with helping others and giving back to the community. And even though it might seem that certain jobs are made to help the community, there is always something you can do to give back. Whether it is to give pro-bono workshops or have a project aimed to solve a real life issue, both are equally important and necessary.
6. Do not work too much that you forget to live
Many people, especially those driven workaholics like myself, keep on working that they find themselves burnout half way through. Make sure you do not fall for this trap again and again this coming year. You do not need to overwhelm yourself and reach burnout to be doing a good job. Taking care of yourself and understanding that there is more to life than just working is a pivotal part of growth. No one can poor from an empty cup, and slowing can even help you be more focused and productive.
