How will you follow through on your interests and decisions, and move forward in your career?

Once you’ve thought about where you are headed, you’ll need to:

  • organise your ideas with action goals  and/or a career readiness plan
  • make good on your commitments and decisions
  • stay true to your values and idea of success
  • achieve what you set out to do.

Of course, things don’t always go to plan… and as circumstances change, new opportunities arise.

So try and keep your overall aims in mind, and be open to new possibilities that could help you realise your goals.

You can stay motivated and manage change by being well-organised, resilient, flexible and open to learning as you go.
