How to Wake up to an Awesome Day

wake up

If you wake up to a  morning that isn’t 100% clear thoughts, smiles and motivation, you’re not alone. In fact, only one-third of all people surveyed consider themselves a “morning person,” according to Research House. However even for creatures of the night, the benefits of a motivated morning are hard to deny.

According to MedPage, “a new study has found that college students who consider themselves ‘morning people’ are more likely to have better grades than those who are ‘evening people’. In fact, the benefit of being a morning person was a full letter-grade difference.” So, whether you are a student or a 9–5 business professional, psyching yourself up to work awesome is crucial!

Working from Home? How to Stay Sane

working

Though many people dream of working designing their own work schedule and getting projects done in their pajamas, working from home isn’t always a picnic. Yet, if you have taken the telecommuter option or have embarked upon a home-based business, here are a few tips to keep you sane, thriving, and productive on the home front.

Set Up Your Working Space

Though the basement level of your home may seem like the ideal place to set up your home office, if there’s no sunlight and it’s cold and musty, chances are you won’t be very productive there. The kitchen table isn’t a great option either—constant traffic and homework mixed in with your work files doesn’t contribute to your productivity. Click Here to Read Article …

The Real Reason a Recruiter Isn’t Calling Back

recruiter

Have you experienced the frustration of a job search or tried seeking the attention of a recruiter?

If you’re looking for a job, you’ve probably encountered a million articles and how-to tips about how to dress at interviews, or the right way to format your resume.

The truth is, however, that the majority of them are missing the point. They’re addressing the problem of how to land the job after you’ve already gotten a call back.

The Myth of Equality

Many companies and the job boards behind them paint an idyllic picture of how recruitment works. They would often have you believe that the world is an utterly fair place and they evaluate each candidate on the basis of their skills and history. If this were true, your resume would have as much chance as any other person.

HTMLform.com + WordPress: Gather Feedback with Style

feedback

Editor’s Note: This is a sponsored post.

Did you teach a course to a group recently? Have you ever made a presentation before your co-workers? Do you usually write and distribute reports? If yes, did you bother to ask your colleagues their feedback or opinion about how it went?

From a more commercial or business perspective, do you ask your customers their opinion about the products or services you provide? Do you have some sort of standard questionnaire available to your customers?

Asking for opinions, feedback, gathering assessments about your work constitutes, in my opinion, the most powerful tool in our way to excellence. Click Here to Read Article …

Goal Setting Success – Charlie Brown Method

goal

If you’ve been into personal development for longer than 5 minutes, you’ve been sold on the benefits of goal setting.

You may or may not have been told about the studies done in the 1950s where they tracked the graduating class of Harvard and 25 years later they found out that the 3% of people who had written a goal were richer than all of the rest 97% who didn’t – COMBINED. [Editor's Note: A similar 1950s' Yale study was proliferated and then debunked by The Fast Company in 1996. Read full article here.]

Workaholic Anonymous – 5 Steps to Stop

workaholic

Spotting an alcoholic or drug addict is so easy, but have you realized that you could be sitting right next to a workaholic and not notice him or her at all?

Sometimes, we don’t have to look far to discover that we ourselves are addicted to work—somehow the addiction snuck in while we were busy working.

Perception – Key to Inner Peace

perception

I’ve come to believe our perception at work and life in general carries a great deal of importance.

Many years ago while striving to climb the “corporate ladder to success”, my boss asked me to meet with him privately, in a very serious, foreboding tone of voice.

I immediately scoured my mind for reasons, or any of my actions that may have prompted this out of the ordinary request, fearing something terrible had occurred unknowingly to me, and walked into his office with more than a heightened sense of apprehension. Click Here to Read Article …
