I’m hearing from a lot of clients who are realizing that they need to give some attention to their career plans. What I’ve been telling them is that the best time to start is now. Even when sheltering in place, there’s lots you can do. In fact, you may find some of the necessary quiet time amidst the chaos to do this work right now.

This is a moment to evaluate and invest in your career: to revisit what you want for yourself and lay the groundwork to help your career develop in the desired direction.
I want to share five ways anyone can invest in their career right now. You can follow these yourself or suggest them to work colleagues who are wondering what they should do next.
