Well, it’s Fourth Quarter 2020. Hard to believe, eh? What a roller coaster of a year 2020 has been thus far. And the most pressing question I’m hearing from so many of you is “How will the pandemic impact my professional trajectory?” Especially when you feel as though you’ve been on an extended work-from-home vacation since March. Even though you are juggling all sorts of personal and professional tasks and strategies as you move forward.
Let’s take a collective breath together, shall we? Reflect on all the one millimeter moments you negotiated, thus far. Because you are far more flexible and nimble professionally than you were back in March. However, much of this change is so subtle , you do not realize how much you’ve grown professionally.
Here are five of my most popular blog posts from third quarter 2020. Take a read or even a re-read. This time, reflect in terms of how each of these posts resounds with your own professional journey this year. I congratulate all you have accomplished thus far. And will accomplish, moving forward. Now, take the time to congratulate yourself. You earned it!
