    A recent discussion with a friend inspired this post.

    Whether you are a workaholic, forced to work overtime each week, or never take work home, when is the last time you stopped to reflect on career? It seems to be something many of us consistently overlook. Working on career progression through an iterative, routine process is key for self-development. But when is the last time you thought about it?

    Regardless of job or employer, you are capable of greater things. I’m not saying you should be job hunting. I’m saying you should be constantly seeking to improve. How do you get started? Here are some suggestions to get the juices flowing:

    • Set aside some time to think in a distraction free environment. No matter how busy you think you are, just do it. Start with 15 minutes per day. Continue daily until a full evaluation of your current career state has been captured.

    • Though it is not required, put your thoughts in writing (stored electronically, backed up in 3 places, not on your work computer, etc.). It will help you remember and will direct your next steps on the career progression journey.
