What’s the “Grand Canyon” for YOUR professional life?

My family took a trip to the Grand Canyon for Spring Break. It’s one of those places many people have on their bucket list. My husband and I are no exception, so now we can say we’ve been there, done that!

We went on the world-famous skywalk at Grand Canyon West, and also spent time in Grand Canyon National Park on the South Rim.

What’s on YOUR bucket list? Have you taken the time to create one?

A few things remain on my list (like a hot air balloon ride), but the Grand Canyon was a big one to accomplish for me.

What’s the “Grand Canyon” for YOUR professional life?

  • That special, strategic project you’ve always wanted to tackle – What’s keeping you from initiating it? Why not begin aligning your sponsors today?
  • That dream company you’ve always wanted to work for – Why are you still waiting to apply for an opening? Why not start networking to get to know people there now?
  • That perfect role within your current company – What’s stopping you from talking to your manager about going for it? Why not create a game plan for how to achieve it in the next 12-18 months?

As the famous saying goes, “fail to plan and you plan to fail.” What’s stopping you from getting your planning underway now?

Please share your comments below about your bucket list for your personal and professional lives. Which things have you already completed? Which ones remain?
