cube dwelling: resolutions…schmesolutions!



me:      so, what are your resolutions for 2012?

niece:   i make resolutions and end up breakin’ them, what’s the point?! i’m not making any.

me:      well, they don’t have to be resolutions resolutions, you can just do a to-do-list, you know, write down a list of things you’d like to get done over the year.

niece:  i already have my forever growing to-do-list, right here *taps her index finger to her head*

me: *eye roll*


i don’t know but there’s something to be said for writing things/goals down. guess, i’m just ol’ skool like that.

if 2012 is the year you want to shake things up in your cube-dwelling life, then try setting some goals, writing them down, attaching a few timelines and not stressing about it.

you don’t have to make a big deal about it, seriously. work-related goals can be something as simple as:

  • January – update resume; or
  • February – research at least 3-5 companies you may want to work for

or something more ambitious like:

  • find a higher paying job in 8 -12 months; or
  • conduct 4 information interviews in the next 3 months.

so go ahead jot down a few ‘things-to-do” for your career in 2012. do it on a post-it note or your smartphone’s memo pad; keep it simple but make it count.

happy ‘new’ year!
