How can we set and use scicomm goals so they lift us up instead of drag us down? [we’re going for boo-yah! 🦾]
Clearly articulate your goals from the beginning of any scicomm project or whenever you have an inflection point in your career.
Give yourself permission to give self-reflection the time, energy, and respect it needs to serve you well.
Allow yourself to use your goals as a “living document” and recognize that your goals will change over time. That’s life, not failure. 🎯
How to get started setting your own goals in just a few minutes:
For 5 min: write down (in brief) all the goals you can think of, big or small, that you’re currently pursuing.
For 5 min: write down why you are pursuing each goal. 🤔
Knowing your “why” is adjacent to setting attainable, measurable goals and will set you up to productively work more on this later.
