This will be a long one... Thank you in advance for going through it.
"What am I doing? What is my value add in office?" is a question I ask myself everyday. (Nearly) Twice. Once when I set to office. Once on my way back.
When I stumbled across the term "career goals" - I believed I could answer it in a jiffy. But I realize now (after sitting at it for 10 whole minutes) that I really don't have a solid goal.
For one, there is one goal which works fine for short periods - be good at what you do, constantly get better.
Fine. Be good, check. Get better, check.
Then there is - make a difference that you were on the job and not anyone else.
Then - Share what you learn
I know these guidelines will help me at cross roads - in making certain career choices. But now, when I am prompted by a questionnaire which asks me for career goals, I draw a blank.
How do I define my career goals using my core values? I want to first answer myself before I answer the questionnaire.
My profession is in the IT.
Edit: On reading my question, I felt that it is too broad. Just to be specific, what should be the next question I should be asking myself so that I can get closer to defining my career goal?
