New Year, New You

New Year, New You?

The transition to a new year always brings reflection on our lives, who we are, where we are, and what our next steps will be. Many make resolutions or decide on a word or theme for the new year. While most resolutions center around healthier lifestyles and better money management, it might be wise to consider focusing on personal and/or professional growth through learning a new skill.

Put some thought into what skills or knowledge would improve your professional life by making it easier, or what skills would open new doors to areas you are passionate about.

Would a new language allow you to take a traveling position where you get to explore countries you’ve always dreamed of visiting? Would a creative writing course enable you to create more compelling sales documents? Would a programming/coding course help you automate a lot of work that you do tediously by hand? Would a networking course open untold doors for your career?

We all need to be continuously learning and adopting new skillsets, so commit to picking a skillset that can change your life and replace a little Netflix binging with learning.
