5 Things to Do for Your Career in the Fall

With a new season upon us, perhaps it’s time to…

Let Go of the Bad Apples. As the leaves are changing colors and falling, Autumn is a great time of year to let go of the things that no longer serve us in our life and in our work. As women, we tend to see the good in everyone and give people the benefit of the doubt, over and over again. But, this season is the perfect time to rid ourselves of any toxic people in our careers that are keeping us from being the most happy and successful we can be.

Add Some (Pumpkin) Spice into Your Work. We typically press restart at the beginning of each new year with a fresh perspective, new goals, and a burst of energy. But, that energy can fizzle out come fall. This is the perfect time to use the inspiration of color, crisp weather and fun to add some spice back into your work.

Get Ready to Turn Over a New Leaf. Out with the old, and in with the new. As the leaves turn from green to orange, red, and yellow – it’s time for you to revamp your work and yourself too. Take this season to think about the goals you had set for yourself in January, and make sure you are following them, or readjust those goals to improve some aspect of your career.

Plan a Festive Networking Event. With all the festive party supplies surrounding us in Autumn, why not use it as an excuse to throw a fun networking event with your colleagues and like-minded women in your area at your home or a local watering hole. Drink caramel apple martinis or mulled wine while sharing your challenges and dreams.

Set Year-end Goals. With just about three months left of 2018, there is no better time than now to set your year-end goals. What are four things you want to accomplish by December 31? Write them down, strategize, make a plan and make them happen!
