Do you feel like your career may have come to a screeching halt? Maybe your career growth has stalled, and you're not quite sure of the reasons why. It's helpful sometimes to take a step back and reevaluate where you've been and where you want to go. Here are some possible reasons why your career growth has hit a wall. 


You Stopped Learning


Sometimes we stall out in our growth and development because we're burned out on the desire to learn anything new. But when you stop learning, you stop growing. Now is the time to reassess what you're doing. If you're not interested in learning more about the current path, it may be time to choose a different approach. 


Make a plan to learn one new thing a week. It can be something specifically related to your current position or anything else you've been interested in. Read personal development books, learn a new hobby, or take online classes. 


You're On Auto-Pilot


Do you ever feel like you're just going through the motions at work? You know your job and can do it with your eyes closed, so you do. You can quickly stall out in your career when you're running on autopilot. What's worse is you have a higher potential of making mistakes. 


Take a minute to determine the source of your dissatisfaction. What can you do to shake things up if you're running on autopilot? Take on a new project. Or, if you realize your current role won't satisfy your need for something new, it may be time to look for a new opportunity. 


You Don't Have an Action Plan


Maybe you're not moving forward in your career because you've never made a plan that can help take you to the next level. Sometimes something as simple as goal setting can help you break out of a rut and take your career in a new direction. 


Consider setting SMART goals to help you get to the next level.

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-based

Know what you want to achieve, how you will measure success, make it attainable and relevant to your long-term goals, and give yourself a deadline.
