Discussion on: What are the "next steps" in your career?

Unlike many I do not really separate "career goals" from "life goals". Sure they are different but they are not independent from each other. My career is part of my life and my life and my life will certainly influence my career.

From a planning perspective I usually base thing on milestones and not on fixed-time windows. I think of a long-term big goal (ie: run my own custom software shop with all remote employees) then I start looking at the intermediate steps to get me there, all which so far have been based around skill-building.
