As you may know, I have a membership site called My Corporate Climb. Members get my best thinking on how to climb the corporate ladder. I know there’s a lot of information on line about how to become an entrepreneur, but there is precious little information on how to succeed in a large corporation. That’s where My Corporate Climb comes in. If you’re interested, just go to http://www.MyCorporateClimb.com to take a look at everything that is available to members.
I urge members of My Corporate Climb to keep a journal. Journaling is a great way to keep your corporate climb moving along steadily and to build your life and career success. And, the best part is that it doesn’t have to be hard work. I suggest you write in your journal at least once a week. At a minimum answer each of the following questions every time you write in your journal.
What did I do since the last time I’ve written in this journal that really moved me toward my corporate career success? Be specific. Describe not only what you did, but why you think it moved you closer to your corporate career success. You’ll want to continue doing this type of activity.
What did I do since the last time I’ve written in this journal that hindered my progression toward my corporate career success? Be specific. Describe not only what you did, but why you think it hindered your corporate career success progression. You’ll want to stop doing this type of activity.
What could I have done since the last time I’ve written in this journal that would have moved me close to my corporate career success if I had done it? Describe not only what you failed to do, but why failing to do this hindered your corporate career success progression. You’ll want to start doing this type of activity.
Today is Friday, a good day to begin journaling. What did you do this week that helped move you toward your life and career success and will continue doing next week? What did you do this week that hindered your progress toward your career success and will stop doing next week? What didn’t you do this week that would have helped move you toward your life and career success and will start doing next week?
It’s that simple. If you answer these three questions every time you write in your journal, you’ll be on your way to creating the corporate career success you want and deserve. You can label these sections simply – CONTINUE, STOP, START. Good luck with your journaling.
That’s my career advice on journaling. What do you think? Please take a minute to share your thoughts with us in a comment. As always, thanks for reading my daily musings on life and career success. I value you and I appreciate you. Bud
