Thanksgiving and Career Management

Posted November 27, 2013

A new jewelry store has opened near my office.  Every day the store owner puts a sign in the window saying what she is thankful for that day.  We need to do something similar with our careers, and there is no better time to do this than Thanksgiving.  Take 10 or 15 minutes and write down everything you are grateful for as a professional.  Even if you are unemployed, think about your strengths and be thankful for them.  Psychologists have found that expressing gratitude helps us stay balanced and keep a positive outlook.  My wish for you this Thanksgiving is that you find many reasons to be grateful, especially when it comes to work and your career.
