Of course, goals help us stay on track towards the careers we want, but not all goals are created equal. Furthermore, goals that were highly appealing to you years ago may not be in your best interest anymore. If your goal is large and long-term (earning a Master’s degree, for example), you may need to break it up into smaller, more manageable goals, to avoid becoming overwhelmed and frustrated. If your goal is causing you nothing but stress and misery, you may need to reassess the goal itself. Remember: there are often several solutions to any given problem. Make sure you’re not fixated on one particular strategy to the exclusion of another that may serve you even better so ask yourself: What are your health career goals?
