What Do I Want In A Career?


  • Your boss thinks you’re too lenient.
  • Your staff thinks you’re too strict.
  • Your friends think you have the perfect job.
  • Your family thinks work can’t really be that bad.

What do you think?

You feel misunderstood. You’re taking on additional responsibilities but not being intellectually stimulated. One of your employees is dealing with a difficult personal issue and another just submitted a resignation.

Do you stay or do you go?

You are in the right position but with the wrong company. Maybe you are working for the greatest company but have outgrown your current role. Maybe you are considering transitioning into a new career field.

It’s hard to hit a moving target:

  • Lack of clarity causes you to make short-term decisions that can hinder your progress.
  • Lack of clarity allows room for distractions that divert your focus.
  • Lack of clarity will keep you in a continuous cycle of confusion and overwhelm.

The first question mid-level managers should look in the mirror and ask themselves if they’re serious about getting promoted is “what do I really want in a career”.

Knowing what you want is the first step to achieving what you want. Until you are clear about what you want, nothing will truly “feel right”.

Task: Grab a pen and paper and start a career wish list. You’ve written a birthday list and a Christmas list and a grocery list so this should be an easy task, right? Wrong! It’s only East when you stay on the surface.
