7 Career Mistakes Almost Everyone Makes

Common Missteps That Haunt Almost All Employees

7. You Don't Know What You Want

If you don’t know what you want, it’s going to be hard to go out and get it.

Are you spending too much time at work? Are you not able to devote enough time to your job because of personal issues? Are you someone who wants to skyrocket up the career ladder with promotions every 6-12 months? Do you need a raise to feel validated or are you happy doing something lower paying that you love?

Whatever the case, you can’t achieve your goals until you’ve identified what you want. So many people are working without having an end goal in sight, so when you ask them what they want you can hear crickets. Figure it out and then work toward it.
