Whoa! Long title.
During the past few days or so I’ve been looking at different continuing education programs in a variety of topics. Of primary interest is BCIT’s new Social Media Marketing certificate, but I’ve also been eyeing the writing programs at SFU.
Ever since I left grad school, choosing what to do has proven to be a difficult task. What jobs do I apply to? What kind of courses should I take? I’m interested in both writing jobs and community management jobs, but I think I’m more attracted to writing.
Then I thought, “what do I really want to do with my life? Write.” And so, the choice becomes easy: I will take courses that will let me expand and improve on my writing skills.
When your desires and needs are clear, your goals become easy to identify. No matter how many times you read it in a book, though, it’s never as obvious as when it happens to you.
Was there a time when you had trouble identifying specific goals? How did you manage to get out of it?
