Before you dive into tonight’s celebrations and the nitty-gritty of job searching in the upcoming year, don’t forget to celebrate the victories you've achieved and the growth you've experienced.


Here are 6 Ways to Reflect, Reset, and Recharge for 2024:


1. Reflect on your Wins


Take a moment and write down 3 wins from this past year. 


No matter how big or small, these are proof that you can and did make things happen. 


It’s your story of resilience and perseverance. 


Whether getting out of your comfort zone to network with other professionals, gaining a new certification, landing an interview, or not giving up – it all counts!


2. Embrace the Lessons


Next, consider 3 lessons you learned along the way. 


Maybe an interview didn't go as planned, or a referral you worked hard to get didn’t pan out. 


That’s okay! Think about what that experience was like and what you learned from it.  


One of my favorite quotes by Adam Grant (Workplace Psychologist) is a great reminder of the crucial role of reflection in helping us grow. 



3. Set Your Intentions


Now, think of three qualities or skills you want to bring into your job search next year. Are you aiming to be more persistent, proactive, or positive? 


Write these down and place them where you can see them every day.


4. Create Your Vision


Visualize where you want to be this time next year. Imagine the role, the company, and how it feels to be there. 


Holding a clear vision is the first step to making it a reality.


5. Build Your System for Success


Let's make 2024 the year of action. Here's how:


  • Daily Goals: Set small daily goals that contribute to your larger objective.
  • Weekly Review: Every Sunday, take stock of what you've accomplished and plan for the week ahead.
  • Accountability Partner: Pair up with a friend or a mentor who can keep you on track.


We’ll cover these in depth in next week’s newsletter. 


6. Stay Positive


Mindset is everything. Positivity can be your superpower in the job search. Practice gratitude by noting one thing you're thankful for each day. This simple act can shift your mindset and open doors to new opportunities.


Positive affirmations can influence your behavior, habits, actions, and reactions, helping you overcome challenges, achieve your goals, and boost your self-esteem!


  • I am deserving of a job that aligns with my skills and passions.
  • I believe in my potential and the value I can bring to the table.
  • My unique experiences and perspective make me a valuable asset.
  • Every rejection is a step closer to the right opportunity.
  • I am continuously evolving and bettering myself for future opportunities.
  • I embrace feedback as a tool for growth and refinement.
  • Every interview is an opportunity to learn and improve.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Reflecting on the past (wins and lessons learned) helps you grow 🪴
  2. Setting intentions and creating a vision can create a strong foundation and purpose.
  3. Small, consistent actions build the momentum needed to achieve big dreams.
