Daily Goals Jonathan Poland

Daily goals are targets that you set for yourself to achieve on a particular day. These can include habits that you are trying to form and unique goals that you develop for that day. Daily goals are often process-oriented, meaning that they describe the actions that you will take, rather than the end result that you hope to achieve. This allows you to focus on the steps that you need to take to make progress, rather than the final outcome.

Networking

Be friendly, outgoing and approachable. Reach out to cultivate professional and social connections.
