How To Achieve Career Goal Setting
If you've been wondering how to achieve career goal setting,
you'll first need to give consideration to two important factors.
Firstly, the current state of your Career Health and Wellness. Secondly, you will need
to tune into your own self-awareness so you know exactly what it is that you want.
Learning how to achieve career goal setting will also necessitate a careful assessment of your personal circumstances, your roles and responsibilities, so as to get a better picture of both your career health and home
life, and how to best attain optimal home/work life balance.
Career health and wellness isn't just reserved for women who are
actively employed or pursuing meaningful work. So if you're a stay-at-home mom, don't assume that setting medium-to long-term career goals or even how to achieve career goal setting doesn't apply to you. It does!
For a start, you won't always be a stay at home mom (unless of course you want to). Nor will your children value you ruining their 'street cred' by picking them up from school once they've reached those golden teenage years. What will you do then -
once they're at the age where they want to make mummy redundant?
Awareness of how to achieve career goal setting is perhaps even more essential for stay at home mums, moms who are considering part-
time work or even working from home. If nothing else, it inspires a sense of direction and open up a number of possibilities you might otherwise not have considered. It is perhaps apt that the remainder of this article focus on doing just that.
While part-time jobs have and will continue to provide a valid means of economic control, independence or even the opportunity to do some other form of meaningful work outside the home, unless it is the same or is closely related to your previous full-time career, you may well find that you're either poorly paid and/or that it represents just as much hassle as holding down a full-time job.
The maths just don't add up, especially when you're trying to cope with the full-time job of school hours; your children being sick; school holidays; housekeeping - while holding down a part-time job.
You may even find yourself having to make constant excuses
for not showing up at work, for being late or even being called to take your sick child home from school.
To say you have limited
control, flexibility or independence in such circumstances would be a gross understatement.
It may well be the case why increasingly many women are finding themselves in a position whereby they don't want to work for someone else, nor have someone looking over their shoulder, nor being told what to do and how to do it. Yet while they want to career forward move, hey have no real idea where to start.
Why not start at the beginning by assessing and scoring your present level of satisfaction in your career health and wellness dimension - Health Womans wellness Wheel.
Once you've achieved that stage of learning how to achieve your career goal, to help you career forward move, here are some goalsetting guidance tips to help you structure your approach toward your personal goals. Remember to be flexible with these to suit your particular circumstances.

How to achieve career goal
setting - issues/barriers
I find I am getting increasingly stressed
I find it difficult to say what's on my mind/deal with conflict
I'm finding it difficult to juggle home/work responsibilities
I'm not as effective communicating with my boss when I'm stressed
I don't have sufficient funds to start up my own business
I feel guilty setting aside time from my family, for myself
I'm finding it difficult to manage the time I have available
I don't know which work from home business opportunity I can pursue
I don't know where to start finding a suitable work from home job
or work-at-home opportunities
Do you see how all the above barriers are stated in ways that avoid
laying 'blame' with other people. What this achieves is an
honesty about how the barriers or issues relating to your goal, are
'Owning' the barrier or issue, enables you to be more objective about your own attitude or conduct and how these are in turn affecting the events you're experiencing. With this awareness, you can work to change for the better, those aspects of yourself that may be limiting you.
