I really like this post by Evil HR Lady, not only for the grammar/spelling mockery, but for the practical advise. She reminds everyone that you need to have a plan. And not just one plan, for your current job and current company, but a second plan; for your career in total. I'm going to add this to my to-do list. It's true I think a lot about long term goals and short term goals, but it would be more efficient to have something really written up. Perhaps Evil HR Lady will expound on the how-tos, or perhaps I need to search her archives and see if she's already gone over this.
