      Executive Coach Vicky Trabosh, author of Dead Rita's Wisdom, shared her plan for achieving career success:

      lan: is the original blueprint for meeting your goals
      Execute:consists of following through on the tasks assigned to the plan for accomplishing goals and overcoming your limiting beliefs
      Review: consists of looking over the plan, determining and analyzing if and how the goals are being met (benchmarks) and beginning the planning process all over again - it's a circular process
      Determine what isn't working as expected or hoped
      Make adjustments in time frame, plan, or tasks and or skills needed
