We’re in the first month of a new year and chances are you’ve made resolutions to improve aspects of your life.

Whether it’s finding a new job or making the most of your current position, having a strategy is a good starting point.

Sasha King, an independent career consultant, offers up some tips on how to set goals at work.

"The questions you want to ask yourself first when you want to achieve a goal or work backwards is 'can I achieve this goal right now' and if not, what do I need to do first... The next step in that process of thinking backwards is thinking about what will you have  to show for your work? Many people achieve or attempt to achieve goals without even thinking about what they will get as a result of this work."
