Hi- My company is requesting us to create goals for the year. Any suggestions?

I have to do this every year and it’s a chore! I concentrate on my value to the team (making my execs day run efficiently) , budget awareness, and value to the larger team (support of visiting execs, team functions, etc.) They don’t really change from year to year so I just reword last years goals.

What do you feel you need to succeed at, reach for and learn more about? Start with the basic EA functions and keeping on task and proactive. Than drill down to your specialty or function of the role that makes you unique

We have to do this also, twice a year, and it IS a chore. Once you're in an admin role for awhile, just what do you aspire to when there's no opportunity for promotion? More vacation? Better pay? Bigger bonus? Past being the best you can be for your firm and the people you support I don't see much else.
