15 Journaling Prompts That Will Help You Level Up Your Work Life
Even though I haven’t set foot in a school for a long time now, September still feels like the start of something new. There’s something about the old association with a new school year, yes, but also the evenings drawing in, the chill in the air that signals autumn is on its way, and the knowledge we’re on the home straight towards the end of the year.With that in mind, this feels like a good time to share a post with journaling prompts about your career. I think paying special attention to this—and any other—area of your life through journaling is super helpful even if you feel happy and settled with the way things are (hooray for you!). And, if you don’t, I hope writing about it will help give you some clarity and shed light on the very next step you can take to improve your situation.All the prompts below are taken from my book The Year of You: 365 Journal Writing Prompts for Creative Self-Discovery so if you enjoy these, you can find many more prompts in the book.
How do you answer the question “What do you do?”
What does success mean to you? Do you consider yourself to be successful?
How much money do you earn? How much would you like to earn?
Would you prefer to be a jack-of-all-trades or a master of one?
What do you love to do so much you would pay (or do pay) to do it?
How important is your career to you, and why?
If you could go back to day one and begin again, what would you do differently in your career?
What would you do differently if you were to bring a deeper level of authenticity to your work?
What did you want to be when you were younger?
What careers do you imagine for yourself “when you grow up” now?
I hope you find it useful and interesting to think about these prompts!Further reading: 15 journaling prompts to explore your spiritual side, journaling prompts to improve your relationship with money, journaling prompts for self-discovery, journaling prompts to improve your relationshipsPhoto by rawpixel on Unsplash
