7 Simple Questions to Ask Yourself to Set Career Goals for 2017

There's nothing like a new beginning. A fresh, clean slate for you to do things even better than you did the last time around.

And with the biggest and most anticipated new beginning of them all only a few days away, I can't help but get excited about all the possibilities for the new year.

If I'm being honest though, along with the excitement of the endless possibilities that await me in 2017, comes the realization that there's so much I want to see, be and do.

Whether it's #relationshipgoals, #bodygoals, #hairgoals, #travelgoals or #moneygoals - it can all be so overwhelming.

And don't even get me started on #careergoals. Where do you even begin? Should they be specific? General? Based on where you are now? Or where you want to go?

It can be a lot to think about.

What happens to most people is that when there are too many options or too many directions to go in, instead of moving forward, you just stop.

You get stuck in the confusion of it all and begin to feel stunted and before you know it, it's December 26, 2017 and you haven't moved the needle on your career since the same time the year before.

The seven simple career questions that follow are ones you've got to ask yourself as you head into 2017.

These questions are meant to get you to take a step back and get clear on the direction you want your career to go in 2017 so you can begin to create the right goals for the new year.
