Joe’s Answer

I started out as a software engineer in 1978 and I was lucky enough to have been mentored by someone who really loved what he did, so I was able to learn how important it was to really and truly like/love what you are doing in your career. As a kid, I always watched my dad tinker around the house and fix things and build things, and once I was old enough, he let me help him and after that I was hooked. I love to make things from nothing, fix things that are broken, learn new things, and always, and I mean always, tried my absolute best to make whatever I was working on be the best I could make it. I'm 64 years old now, still working in software engineering, and still loving what I do. I still act as "Mr. Fixit" around my house and vehicles. I have traveled the world for my jobs and have gone places where I would have never ever dreamed I would have gone, and met people from other countries and other cultures. I've even been able to take my wife along on some trips and combine work with pleasure. We recently visited St. Petersburg Russia together. It was fabulous.

So bottom line, to be successful, work hard, try your best always, love what you do, have fun doing it, and keep an open mind when you interact with your co-workers. It's really not that hard to be successful at whatever you choose to do.

Hope this helps

Chantelle’s Answer

First, I got a good understanding of what it was I wanted to do for a lifelong career. Once I had that in mind, I chose what I wanted to major in in college that would help me to achieve my lifelong career goals, then I made great connections through school and elsewhere like social media and such. Then I started practicing my skills and expertise in my spare time that would contribute to my goals.

For instance, I want to be a psychologist who researches mass gun violence. I decided to major in criminal justice and public safety and psychology. Then, I turned my hobby of researching mass shootings and gun violence into a profession; I started publishing my own articles and making strong connections with likeminded people who would be able to present me with more opportunities for my future.

Michael’s Answer

For me, the answer to that is dependant on what the goal was. I think the more important issue for you to focus on is how to set realistic and helpful goals. Always remember: "What gets measured gets managed". This is true not only in business but also personally. Determine to make your goals SMART (see description below):

S – Specific (or Significant)
M – Measurable (or Meaningful)
A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented)
R – Relevant (or Rewarding)
T – Time-bound (or Trackable)

Samantha’s Answer

Come up with a goal that is realistic, time restraint, and measurable. Break it up into smaller goals that contribute to your larger goals. These little wins will help you get motivation for your big goal.
