Career Goals and Steps to your Future

Objective: You will brainstorm and gather information to evaluate what steps you need to take to achieve your career goals.


  • Take a couple of minutes to close your eyes and imagine running your own ideal business or enterprise.

    Not necessarily profit-making in a conventional business sense - it can be a service of any sort; some people for example seek to be careers, or writers, or gardeners, or cooks, to have a shop or a cafe, or to teach others. It is important to emphasize that everyone - not just entrepreneurs - can follow their dreams. Visualizing and stating one's dreams helps greatly to make them happen. Think about and express personal dreams and passions relating to your ideal business or service activity or enterprise, which involves exploring their fulfilment of personal potential and strengths.

2.Write down your ideas: Provide as much detail as possible.

3. Close your eyes and think where in the world would you locate your business/service activity and why?

4. Describe the place in as much detail as you can.

There are no right or wrong answers –

The activity is an opportunity for people to think and imagine possibilities for themselves beyond the constraints that often limit us and our fulfilment.

What other ideas do you have for your future?

3 tips for choosing a college that matches your needs
3 Tips for Choosing a Collegethat Matches Your Needs

1. Pick up a College GuideA good college guide can help you choose a college by offering detailed school profiles. You'll learn about the programs offered, tuition costs, campus culture, and much more. College guides that I recommend include: Complete Book of Colleges, America's Best Value Colleges, and Best 361 Colleges2. Visit the School's WebsiteYou can't choose a college without knowing what type of programs they offer. One of the easiest ways to get this info is through the school's website. 3. Talk to College StudentsIf you want to get the skinny on a college, you need to talk to one or more of the people who attend the school. They can give you the type of information that you'll never find in a college brochure.
