Why Self-Improvement Leads To Career Success

This article will show you what steps you need to take to improve yourself and ultimately attain career success. When you continually improve yourself in knowledge, skills, experience, and efficiency, the result is continuous career growth. This means that your pursuit of career success will most predictably fail if your only goal is to seek career progression. However, if you commit to pursue self-improvement, with determination and persistence, the results should be career success. With that in mind, here are five steps for self improvement that should lead to career success. 1. Take The Risk And Venture Out Step out of your comfort zone, and challenge yourself to learn more. The character of Steve Jobs, the co-founder and late CEO of Apple, demonstrated that only when you step out of your comfort zone can you spark your creative genius. Minor, short-term,  self-improvement drills may initially seem futile. Ultimately, however, when all these small improvements are consolidated,

2017: The Year of Polishing

I used to be a resolution maker. I would write my little checklist of all the things I planned to do or change each year, and post reminders everywhere to keep me on my toes. Don’t get me wrong, it worked and I got many things accomplished that way. I still do make my lists, however, I started realizing years ago it was more important for me to have a theme for the year instead. 2016: The Year of Release 2016 was the year of release for me. I needed to release a lot of things in my life that were hindering me from being the best version of myself. In doing that, I also ended up being released from, and releasing people I had no idea would no longer play such a large role in my life. I found myself becoming distant from everything I once consumed myself with that wasn’t productive or positive—an action that created both positive yet sometimes sad results. I needed to release things that were stopping me from working on ME. Unfortunately not everyone was a fan of me becoming my pr

Why Retirement Planning Is More Important Than You Think

Retirement is one of those inevitable phases of life, which marks the end of our careers that we have built over the years by acquiring skills and constant hard work.  Assignments, deadlines, meetings etc. soon get replaced by holidays, pursuing new hobbies, and spending more time with family. While some people look forward to this relaxed and stress-free life post retirement, some get worried about the loss of a steady source of income. If you do not prepare yourself financially, retirement can be quite depressing for you and your family. Retirement is a time when income drops and expenses rise. So, financial planning is required for leading a financially independent life even after retirement. Financial planning simply refers to saving up money for the future. A number of people start saving for retirement without knowing how much they will need to maintain their standard of living after retirement. So, if you have already started your retirement plan, ask yourself one simple que

The Biggest Fight of the Highly Sensitive Person (Part 2/3)

A three-part series on how to thrive a highly sensitive person. This is Part 2. — Imagine you and your friend go to the gym for a week. She does light walking on the treadmill 2 times this week for 30 minutes each time. You run 90 minutes for 5 days. Whose muscles have worked more? Whose muscles need more rest to get ready for next week’s training? You or your friend? It’s the same situation between HSP and non-HSP. In Part 1 , we came to understand that HSPs come with an innate ability to notice more. More of what? More of the subtleties. The subtleties of what? I have to say..of everything. If you’re an HSP, this will not require much explanation. You’ll get it right away. You pick up details happening around you that 80% of people miss. Tim looks pensive. He didn’t yesterday. Seems like he’s having trouble getting his words out. There’s a kind of heaviness in his voice. He also seems distracted, lost in his thoughts. Meanwhile, his wife Rita doesn’t seem to be looking at

4 Better Ideas For Your Next Event Giveaway

Event giveaways are a tried-and-true promotion strategy that companies big and small have been using for decades. For starters, it gives businesses the opportunity to provide value to potential customers, which can go a long way toward keeping your brand fresh in their minds long after the balloons are popped and the signs are taken down. Further, branded materials promote brand recognition to all who come in contact with it, even if the recipient of the prize isn’t promoting your company through word-of-mouth. There are some things to consider, however. Like any marketing strategy, the target audience should be at the top of your list. What works for some may not work for others, and you’ll want to decide whether you want to create a following of die-hard consumers who will advertise for you on their own or cast a wide net, attracting college students and soccer moms with the same giveaway. To that end we have provided the following, a list of ideas for you to consider when you’re p
