Description

We typically associate with folks of the same socio-economic circles.

Studies show that your salary and income are typically within 20% of the group of people you regularly hang around with.

So, if you want to jump to a different salary or professional level, we may need to change who we hang around with.If you want to leap to the next professional rung, we may want to find ways to network with people of that next desired level.In other words, surround ourselves with the success we want to achieve. You can use social media sights like LinkedIn.com to jump those hurdles.

Acknowledgement 1 - if you don’t know what your goals or timeframes for those goals – you can not effectively determine if you are not progressing fast enough or not. If you don’t know if you are not progressing fast enough, then you don’t know if you need to change your strategy

It is for this reason that I like to start of with Goal Setting.

Download this initial questionaire, from the supplementary material section, to get started with your goal setting exercise.
