Vacation and Personal Branding
It’s that time of year in the northern hemisphere when many of us turn off for a week or two, or maybe for a series of extended weekends. And for many of us, that means trying really hard to turn work off and working really hard at having fun!
Although keeping work off your mind is one of your primary goals, keeping your career on the top of your mind IS a good thing. When you’re at work, you’re bogged down with emails, meetings and reports – making it hard to remove yourself and think about your career. So here are three simple but important questions to ponder as you’re sitting on the beach, touring a museum or sipping your umbrella adorned cocktail:
- What’s my next move for my career?
- Which of my greatest strengths is most differentiating for me and how can I integrate that strength into everything I do every day?
- What one energy-zapping activity can I stop doing when I return to work?
Enjoy your vacation!
