It’s January, and the time of year where people turn to thinking about what is going to be their personal and professional focus for the next 12 months. While we might think that, the actual process of writing objectives can be quite difficult, and it can be hard to work out exactly what makes a good objective. On top of that, project work is very flexible and objectives can change mid-way through the year, making anything you decide this month a bit pointless. Ideally you will work with your manager to come up with objectives that will have some degree of longevity and will see you through until December, but try to set your objectives with half an eye on the fact that you may have to change them later on if your project work dictates it.
