    Do you have a blueprint for success in your professional career?

    As an architect designs a blueprint to build a balanced and strong building, you must design a career blueprint to ensure you are progressing, progressive and able to weather the storm.  Just as a building has to be built to withstand the internal and external elements, you too need the tools to withstand internal and external factors which can boost or blow your career!

    Your blueprint is your guide. It articulates what you’re building (goal), the materials (education, training,) necessary to create a sustainable structure, the people (mentors, networks) who will assist you, and a time frame to reach your goal. These fundamental essentials are necessary to building a strong career foundation.

    Most of us travel in our professional careers without a blueprint. Consequently, we find ourselves being reactive to fix what’s broken. When we meet obstacles, our foundations are shaken and sometimes crumble. Your blueprint gets you from point A to your destination, the point of success.

    Here are Smart Solutions Strategies™ that build a career which is strategically aligned with your goals.

    First Smart Solution: When designing your career blueprint for success, determine your goal. Once your career goal is defined, evaluate if it is aligned with your skill set, education and your happiness. It makes sense to connect your career goal to who you are and what you have. Next, appraise if you have the personality to be successful. You may have all your ducks in a row, but if you don’t have the personality to be successful in your career, you’ll hit a brick wall!

    Second Smart Solution: Be realistic with your timeline for achieving your goal. Some of the best career plans are still on paper. Even though your time-line needs to be established; you need to be flexible as you build your career. Life happens. You make adjustments. Dust yourself off and proceed with obtaining your goals. Blessed are those who are flexible.

    Third Smart Solution: Don’t underestimate the role of good mentors and who you know. These people can be a backdrop to being successful. They can assist you in making an impact within your company and being relevant in the organization. Ask individuals who can help you successfully navigate company culture, complexities, ambiguity and uncertainty. Observe people who are successful, listen to what they say and apply best practices to build a blueprint for your career success.

    In Review: Understand how to design a blueprint for success which will give you a strong foundation (skills and education) to be successful. Design a plan outlining what is necessary during the various stages of your journey to include timelines, energy and a good personality. And lastly, design a contingency, ‘what if’ plan to allow you to weather the storms of life so you’re not robbed of meeting your goal.
