Self-Development: Breaking the Long Road into Milestones

Speaking of career paths, such paths, although do have a starting point, they usually do not have a definite end. There is always a room for development. The difference might be seen in that some people acknowledge such fact and always seek to improve their skills and abilities, while others bound themselves with what they achieved already. Constantly having a sense of purpose is beneficial in self-development, and accordingly, self-development should stem from such purpose, whether in professional or educational context. In that regard, this article will attempt to explain the process of constant improvements. Purposeful Life The main aim of setting a purpose in any initiative can be understood as the process of setting a direction that one should follow. Providing an analogy with careers and employment, setting a particular purpose, e.g. becoming the head of the department, sets the direction that one should follow. The direction can be described by the skills and the abilities that one should learn or develop in order to be able to reach such position. Thus, putting a purpose is about identifying needs that one should fulfill. Short and Long-Term Purposes Putting a purpose in order to succeed is not always related to some global and long-term goals. Establishing short-term purposes has many benefits as well, where individuals have the ability to timely evaluate them and make appropriate adjustments. Transitioning from long-term goals to short-term goals can be seen through the following steps: • Establish the long-term goal as reaching the highest position in your current career path. • Identify the intermediary milestones to such goal. • Identify the needs for each of the milestones. • Identify the skills that should be learned or developed to satisfy such need. • Identify what it takes to learn or develop each skill. • The aforementioned is your first short-term goal.
