What is your BIG GOAL?

Reminding ourselves of our accomplishments, can be a powerful motivator spurring us to reach new heights. Reflecting on your small successes helps you realize how far you've come. It gives you confidence to go forward towards your BIG GOAL!

Celebrate your accomplishments

Think about what you've accomplished. Maybe you found the perfect preschool, or successfully guided your child through the college admission gauntlet to a place they felt at home. Maybe you raised more money for the PTO than they'd seen in the previous two Covid years to get the budget back on track. You may have found just the right care team for your father-in-law so he can remain independent. Maybe you successfully hosted your extended family to celebrate a milestone birthday.

The project management, coordination, compassion, and executive influencing you have flexed in your personal life has direct links to skills sorely needed in the workplace. Different experiences provide diverse perspectives that help solve complicated problems.

What's YOUR big goal?

Give yourself a pat on the back, celebrate your successes from your hard work to date. After reflecting, think of how these can motivate you to set your BIG lofty goal? What is at the apex of the mountain for you in 2023?

You, as part of our UP community -- your successes, your support, your return stories -- have been our WHY. Together we are impacting gender equality, creating opportunity for business, and overcoming the systemic barriers for returners.
