"Check What All You Can Save Working from Home"

When people hear about any jobs with an awesome pay along with the facility of working from home, definitely people will be excited about that, as in the present situation, it is better to work from home than going to office and work. This is because there are various expenses that are to be taken care of once you start going out for work. Apart from that, it also helps you in time management. If you want to know what all you can save by working from home, check out the list below as given by Kelly Gurnett on the Brazen Life website.

1. Commuting Costs:
No doubt you will have to spend a lot of money to travel from home to the workplace every day. If you are traveling by bus, though you need not have to buy the tickets every day, you need to buy the bus pass every starting day of the month to avoid daily expenses. Apart from that, if you take up a two wheeler or your car to travel to your office, if any problem occurs in them, you need to spend money on them to fix it. If you are a field worker who travels every day to different places to complete your office work, you might also have to spend money on parking charges.

2. Eating Expenses:
Many professionals will be Bachelors and bachelorettes working in different States away from the family. So, during this situation, they would be spending their money on eating their breakfast, lunch, dinner outside. So, this can be reduced if they have an opportunity to work from home, as it is a very flexible destination to do the office work as well as simultaneously look after house work like preparing and having their food and other activities done at home. This can help them save unnecessary money on eateries.

3. On Attires:
It is for sure that, if you opt for a job in any of the corporate companies, many of those companies demand you to dress up with professional attire for both men and women accordingly. So, if you are desperately in need of a job, you will have to spend your money on those kinds of attires demanded from the company. So, if you have an option of working from home, you can avoid those expenditures as there are no rules that you need to dress up professionally while working from home as well.

Happy learning.

"Huge Workplace Stress Hindering Indian Corporate Executives"

Work related stress, deep fatigue and isolation have forced many employees to quit their job, reports Anumeha Chaturvedi on The Economic Times.

Vivek Gupta, a former vice-president in the institutional equities teams at one of the biggest investment banks in Mumbai says “My work hours were terrible… about 80 – 100 hours a week. I was not getting any time for my family and children and also as I was affected by severe health problems I was forced to take a break”.

39 year old Tushar Sehgal, a former advertizing professional who worked as a creative director for a growing agency was stated in the article by Anumeha Chaturvedi saying, “I wanted to spend some time with my nephew and family on Diwali and realized that the quality of my life was far more precious than a fat pay cheque”. He even added that “I keep getting calls from headhunters, but I will not go back to that life again”.

Similarly, there are thousands of employees in corporate India who are entrapped in stress drenched jobs due to their meager savings and ever increasing EMIs, and are plummeting into depression every day.

According to the survey of Cadbury India that polled 2,100 professionals from the different cities of the country in an attempt to understand customer psyche, 63 percent employees felt that they are working harder than they would like to, because of competitive work atmosphere, 66 percent of the working population in India is suffering from isolation, and 77 percent hope they had someone to share their happiness and pain.

Counselors and psychologists from across the country say that they are treating more and more people suffering from work related emotional disorders. Dr Puneet Dwevedi, the head of the department of mental health and behavior at Fortis Healthcare said that “the numbers of such cases have doubled over the last year”. He also added that he treats three to four working professional every day.

PwC, a consulting firm has also been studying work-life balance and the executives of the company said that the findings are alarming. Kaustubh Sonalkar, an Executive Director at PwC said that “Our research tells us that around 72 percent of Indian professionals work beyond regular working hours and around 92 percent of the population takes work home”. Also 95 percent of the professionals across different age group confessed to a new form of morning illness, i.e. checking their cell phones immediately after waking up.

He added “We work closely with companies. But at times, our measures and advice do not get demonstrated in the right manner. Companies need to do much more to rectify such situations”. Most of the companies are struggling because they are more often split between the need to reduce expenses and guard profits, and a desire to keep precious talent happy and engaged. Given the current economic meltdown, the balance often shifts in favor of the former. Several companies such as Citi India and Dabur said they have incorporated programs that facilitate a superior work-life balance such as maintaining the sanctity of five working-days a week, ensuring that the employees are not disturbed on the weekends and starting yoga sessions for senior managers.

79 Top Things You Must Never Say Your Co-Worker on Mon 12 Nov 2012 - 13:06

Dear Friends, Please find the following link


for "Top Things You Must Never Say Your Co-Worker"

In a workplace, there are a lot of things that needs to be taken care to make your workplace a better and happy place to stay, as this is the only place where you spend most of your day’s time. So, to make it a healthy atmosphere, there are a lot of things that you need to take care, including the way you behave with others, as well as how others at your workplace behave with you. You always need to make sure that you have a clear image in front of everybody including your boss. Did be a part of unwanted discussions and remove all the unworthy questions from your mind that you are planning to ask others. This doesn’t mean that, you just need to do your office work and rush home after office hours. It is your duty to build a good rapport with your colleagues and other people at office without being an alien to their eyes, who never speaks and mingles with others.

So, here are few main things you need to avoid asking or discussing it with your colleagues, as it might harm your status or image unnecessarily in front of everyone, as referred and reported on different websites.

1. Gossiping about the Boss or other co-workers:
Gossiping about unclear personal or professional issues of your boss or co-workers with your near and dear colleague at office is a big “NO”, because you might not know, that person with whom you are talking negatively about boss or colleague might be very close to them without your awareness. So, never ever try to talk negatively at workplace about others, especially if the person about whom you are talking is of your works in the same company. This is because; it is not possible for you to avoid facing them off every day as you work together for long hours every day.

2. Discussing about the religious background:
Yes, especially in a country like India, as there are many religions performed by different religious groups, at a workplace, you find people coming from different religious background. So, it is better to avoid talking about particular religions of every employee, as sometimes those discussions might take a negative turn where you can end up for a debate on whose religion is the best.

3. Not helping when asked for help:
“Please don’t ask for any help as I am too busy today and I don’t know anything about what you are asking”. This is another unhealthy manner of responding to someone who needs your help at workplace. It shows your rudeness you exhibit at workplace. Remember that, if you refuse to help someone the same situation can reflect on you someday where others can show ignorance of helping you. So, if you want to refuse helping, tell it in a polite manner that, “I am sorry i am very busy today, can we discuss about it sometime later in the day or next day?” This kind of phrase doesn’t affect the emotion of that person in a negative manner.

4. Politics:
Discussion about political issues always end up in a fight between two people or two groups of people, because one person might be supporting a particular party which other person would have been against it. So, they might end up in proving which party is better between those two parties. So, such discussions will also take you away from the topic related to workplace and you might forget your work and start debating with each other. So, discussion about politics is a big “NO”.

5. Job Status:
Every employee is entitled to promotion in their professional life if they are really smart in their work as well as hard working by nature. Usually such kind of employees will be more attractive in the eyes of their boss and they will be favorites in their list to get a promotion. So, if you are one such employee and get a promotion for your hard work, it is true it is an occasion to celebrate. But make sure unless and until your title changes officially, don’t discuss it with any of your colleagues. You can share your happiness with your family and friends except with your co-worker. This is because; you might sound very proud of yourself as well as rude in the eyes of the co-worker unnecessarily.

6. Are you an intern?:
It’s true that, if you are a senior at office, you will be having some rights of asking questions to the person who joins new. But when you ask questions like, “Are you an Intern?”, that doesn’t sound good because, that person might have already worked somewhere and this might be his or her second or third job. So, avoid asking such questions for a newly joined candidate.

7. Discussing about personal issues:
It is a human nature that if a person feels close to another person who he or she meets and chats with each day, definitely they start sharing their personal issues regarding their family or about themselves itself. Though this method can make them feel relaxed after sharing with someone, this is not a good idea when sharing it with your colleagues. Yes, though two people work in a same company, its better not to discuss your personal issues with the colleagues as it will be good if you set limits on whatever your reveal to them. Remember one thing, if you are close to some of your co-workers; never forget that, they will still be your co-workers, who also are finding ways to defeat you and move forward. So, never ever start talking unnecessary things related to your personal life with your colleagues at the workplace as it is not a good idea.

Happy learning.

6 Behaviors That Can Get You Fired!

Thousands of employees around the world get fired every day. Though some employees lose their jobs through no faults of their own, in a majority of cases there are legitimate reasons for their termination.

Here is a list of such legitimate reasons for terminating an employee, as reported by Matthew Bellows of Business Insider.

1. Dishonesty, Lack of Integrity and Evasion at Workplace:
It is essential for an employee to be truthful, unambiguous and cooperative with management and colleagues at workplace. In addition, it is important for an employee to protect organization’s proprietary information and secrets such as program materials, new projects, copyrighted / trademarked materials, sensitive accounts, etc. to prevent corporate espionage and theft. No employees are supposed to exploit company’s time, resources or materials for their personal gain. Failing to abide by these responsibilities may put the respective employee in a bad light and will eventually lead to termination.

2. Poor Performance:
Performing tasks slowly, with numerous errors can have a negative impact on one’s professional life. Employees with such sloppy attitude and absence of inclination towards doing a good quality job are bound to get fired, unless they act quickly and change their approach for more productive deeds.

3. Refusing To Follow Directions and Orders:
Every employee should understand that it is very essential for them to follow the directions and to act in accordance with the request of their superiors at workplace, for a smooth and healthy relationship with the management. Anyone who doesn’t comply with this moral code of conduct is certain to be terminated.

4. Inconsistent or Unreliable Work and Behavior:
Employees should always be consistent and unwavering in their productivity and behavior in order to benefit the organization and produce profits or positive turnover. Any ups and downs in the productivity and accuracy in their jobs will congregate to meet dire consequences.

5. Lack of Motivation:
It is essential for an employee to maintain and even increase his motivation levels at the workplace in order to efficiently tackle the challenges of the work. Motivation is the source of power for successful employees. Lack of motivation can have a direct negative impact on an employee’s performance and productivity, which ultimately leads to termination.

6. Inability to perform assigned jobs:
Employees who state that they are capable of carrying out certain tasks during interview or on resume, but fail to perform those duties while at work, are likely to be fired if they do not learn to perform those tasks quickly. Such wrong doings are intolerable in this challenging business world and can also have an adverse effect on the employee’s future career option.

Lying in the resume, high absenteeism rate, drug / alcohol abuse, sexual harassment, inability to socialize with colleagues, carrying out personal business at work, and lying in the resume are some of the other culprits of employees losing their jobs.

83 (75) "Resume Blunders That Can Cost Your Job" on Thu 15 Nov 2012 - 10:16

(75) "Resume Blunders That Can Cost Your Job"

Most of the job seekers usually make obvious and painful blunders on their resumes that might cost them the job. Hence it is essential for an individual to pay utmost attention to the minor details of one’s resume and increase the probability of getting a job. Though there are several online tools that are helpful in creating a better resume by avoiding critical mistakes such as punctuation, most of them will not grab hold of several obvious slip-ups.

Here is a list of such blunders on a job seeker’s resume, as reported by J.T. O’Donnell of AOL Jobs on Business Insider.

1. Subjective Texts:
It is advisable for an aspiring job seeker not to fill the resume with extravagant self-praises and avoid using derogatory / untested phrases such as ‘exceptional communication skills’, ‘hard working individual’, ‘dedicated self – starter’ and so on, which might create a sense of negative publicity with respect to the recruiters. Instead you can list proven accomplishments and let the recruiter decide if you are actually a go-getter.

2. Excessive Information:
Contrary to the popular perspective, excessive information is not a way to stand out; it actually acts as detraction from an individual’s core message and strengths.

It is advisable to simplify the resume to incorporate only those key skills that you want to leverage. This indirectly implies that you have a lot more to offer, but the recruiters need to contact you to find out, what exactly you want the resume to do. If the recruiter is satisfied with your inherent potential, then they are bound to contact you for a phone screen to get more details.

3. Un-Inspiring Top-Fold:
Recent studies have showed that most of the hiring managers decide the eligibility of a job seeker within the first 6 – 13 seconds of reading the resume. Hence it is advisable to create a top-fold, i.e. first third of one’s resume, with well formatted text-sensitive characters and incorporate key skill sets that catch the recruiter’s attention.

4. Fancy Fonts:
Fancy or curly tailed fonts make it harder to read for the recruiter, and translate into the hiring manager engrossing less of what’s been written. In the limited time a recruiter spends analyzing a resume, such as complication in reading or understanding might have a negative impact on an individual’s job opportunity. Hence it is advisable for a job seeker to opt for clean-lined font such as Arial or Calibri, rather than script fonts. Though these fonts may look basic, the recruiter will at least take in more, which might create a job opportunity.

Please do keep in mind that in today’s fragile job market it is essential than ever for an aspiring job seeker to make his / her resume stand out from the rest. Hence paying attention to the minute details and avoiding noticeable mistakes can get a better response to their marketing message and create numerous employment opportunities.

(76) Top 8 Essential Soft Skills for Job Seekers

Each employer looks for an employee with different blend of proficiency, skill and experience depending on the type of the business field. Presently, the challenging economy demands every aspiring job seeker to complement his unique core proficiency with certain ‘soft skills’, to stand out from the rest and in turn increase the probability of hiring.

Here is a list of 8 essential soft skills that employers are looking for in their potential employees, as reported by Jason Phillips on Top 10 List Website.

1. Strong Work Ethics:
A strong work ethic is essential for every aspiring individual to achieve his / her goal. Every employee from the CEO to entry level worker must have a good work ethic to keep the company up and running at its peak. Strong work ethic embodies a set of moral principles that guides an employee’s work behavior, leading them to turn out high-quality work consistently and without the push that some individuals require to stay on track.

2. Team Player:
A team player is a social skill that ranks high with the employers, and essentially means an individual who places the team goals and the team objectives ahead of his / her personal gain. Every successful employee needs to collaborate with his coworkers and be a valuable part of the team. Being a team player will help an individual to develop a meaningful relationship with their colleagues and gives the impression of being better than the rest, in the eyes of their employer.

3. Emotional Intelligence:
Emotional intelligence is the most sought after soft skill by an employer. It is defined as the set of proficiencies that demonstrates the ability of an individual to recognize and manage his / her behavior, temper, mood and impulse to the best of their abilities as per the prevailing situation. Ability to efficiently manage emotions such as jealousy, anger, hatred, hopelessness, fear, insecurity, isolation, anxiety, powerlessness, etc. at workplace can make a huge difference to an individual’s career and daily work life.

4. Ability to Solve Problem:
Problem solving is an essential skill in today’s challenging work environment. This fundamental soft skill enables an individual to analyze problems, recognize problem severity, propose solution, evaluate options, implement solutions, and access the impact of alternate solutions. It involves making use of the available resources, information and knowledge as well as the past experience, creativity and reasoning powers, to address and resolve current issues within least possible effort and time.

5. Adaptability / Flexibility:
Adaptability and flexibility are the most important soft skills that are essential to put up with the rapidly changing business environment. Increasingly employers are looking for individuals who can thrive on adverse and unforeseen conditions, and alter their routines as per the requirements. It has become very essential for individuals to learn and adjust to different situations, technologies and manage several tasks simultaneously with utmost efficiency.

6. Time Management Abilities:
Time management is an essential skill that every aspiring individual must possess, because it determines not just an individual’s professional triumph but their work life balance. Completing tasks assigned at workplace within least possible time and highest standard is a key determinant of career success.

7. Self Confidence:
Self confidence is a vital aspect of an individual’s day-to-day life and is the key of success at workplace. Individuals with high confidence and self-esteem generally stand tall and proud, project a sense of calmness and manage to inspire confidence in others. This automatically concludes that such individuals are more successful and appreciated than those who are not.

8. Performing well under pressure:

(80) Exit Strategies for Resigning Gracefully

The current financial crisis is not stopping numerous employees from quitting their job voluntarily. The reasons for such a drastic decision might be a better opportunity, unbearable work pressure or to spend quality time with their family. However, regardless of the reason for quitting, it is essential for every employee to resign elegantly.

Here is a list of such exit strategies that helps you to leave a job gracefully, as reported on MENSXP website.

1. Work till the End:
Handing out a resignation doesn’t mean that it is the end of an individual’s professional responsibility in that particular organization. It is the duty of that individual to put in his 100 percent efforts for the welfare of the company till the end of his contract. It is essential for an employee to respect and maintain his professionalism, rather than goofing off during office hours, after quitting. It is recommendable to maintain office manners and to be a complete professional till the end, which will help him to maintain a pleasant relationship, and will also be beneficial to himself and his former employer.

2. Be Good:
The excitement of getting a new job shouldn’t hinder you from being on the best behavior. Fighting with your coworkers, expressing disgust and treating subordinates disrespectfully are bound to account for a repulsive experience and will leave you with dreadful memories. It is worthwhile to refrain yourself from bad mouthing your peers or superiors and other abusive behaviors, which are considered as unethical acts, and thus maintain a healthy work environment.

3. Counteroffer:
If the employer considers you as a precious asset to the organization, then he is bound to present a counteroffer to your resignation. Examine such offers thoroughly with an open mind and insist them to put in writing if you are pleased with the offer. However, on the hindsight, it might be most sensible to reject such offers, since staying back for higher pay after quitting will put you in a bad light and give the impression of disloyalty and indecisiveness.

4. Thank Your Colleagues:
After handing out the resignation to the employer, it is advisable to inform your coworkers and show gratitude for their association and cooperation. This is also the best opportunity to make up for the sour relationships and leave a sweeter memory at the workplace. It is essential to leave good memories behind, because the thought you leave behind may very well become the reflection that defines you in your future workplace. Ultimately, positive inter-personal relationship at the workplace will transform into great references and show the way for a better future.

Quitting is an extremely easy process, however quitting with grace involves a lot of skill and elegance. By following the above mentioned tips, an individual will be able to leave behind a positive thought and good memory at the workplace.

11 Traits That Will Get You Promoted


New Year brings in new opportunities for employees to make a career transition into a new department, job in your current area, or job in a new company.

Do you ever wonder why some individuals get promoted, while others are overlooked? You might be shocked to know that while being tagged as a hard working and dedicated individual are important attributes for a lucrative career, they will not guarantee a promotion.

Do bear in mind that employers are not rewarding strong performers for their past contribution; they are actually investing in the employee’s future contribution. To get promoted, an individual has to offer the best prospects out of the available lot.

If you aspire to make a move in your existing company, here are few things you can plan to do, as reported by Glenn Llopis of Forbes and other sources.

1. Demonstrate a Strong Ability For Growth:
Aspiring individuals must show the ability to evolve their thoughts and the capacity to expand their skill sets as per the situation. The old ways of being good at something and never expanding the inherent skills and abilities have ended. Presently, it has become essential for an aspiring individual to work twice as hard and illustrate his / her competence for growth, which requires an individual to invest in his / her know-how more than ever before.

It is advisable for an aspiring individual to identify his / her areas of strength in work and invest on those areas. This will enable them to grow in their company and contribute in more purposeful and meaningful ways.

Do bear in mind that one should have a thirst for knowledge and the ability to learn new things in order to reach greater heights. Stretch yourself and test your limits, which will ultimately lead you to the path of success.

2. Have a Positive Attitude:
It is a fact that attitude makes or breaks the fortunes of an individual. In the present day challenging environment, it has become essential for an aspiring individual to possess a great attitude that is attractive and likable by all, in order to grow in life. Remember, your behavior, your reliability, and most of all your overall character are being measured at all times and defines your ability to fit into the present day corporate culture. Employers generally promote individuals who can make others want to do better and possess leadership traits.

3. Have the Courage to Take Risks and Think Big:
The most important trait that employers look for in an aspiring individual is the audacity to be bold and the ability to thing, act and innovate in ways that come most naturally to them. Hence it is advisable for aspiring individuals to be bold, put their capabilities to test, and follow their passionate pursuit of purpose to take flight and lead them to success.

Never wait for things to happen and seize the opportunities that come your way. And do bear in mind that courageous individuals may not always win, but more often than not, they will be respected.

4. Earn The Trust of Your Colleagues:
At a time when most people have trouble trusting others let alone themselves, building relationships because you are trustworthy is a powerful asset to have, especially for getting promoted.

Being trustworthy and earning the respect of others is not that easy as it sounds. It is not just earned just because you are likeable. Earning the trust of your colleagues requires you to be an honest individual with strong communication skills, know how to build rapport, have the right credentials, have proficient conflict resolution skills, and most of all being diplomatic with people.

5. Be Loyal at Any Cost:
Loyalty is a powerful trait that measures the character of an individual within an instant. And being loyal to one’s respective company and the brand they serve is the first and the foremost step to be successful in life.

Unconditional loyalty towards the company can only be achieved if your personal values align with those of your organization.

6. Ask For More Responsibilities:
Volunteering to help out your fellow team members or simply asking for more responsibilities can amplify your value in the organization. Taking the initiative and asking for more work shows your desire and interest to help their team, department or the company to succeed, as well as putting a spotlight on your value with respect to the organization. It will also show that you are prepared to tackle a larger or more complicated workload and are not just looking for a fatter paychecks or bigger office.

7. Learn New Skills and Acquire New Knowledge:

As innovative in technologies are rapidly changing the human world, it has become very essential for an aspiring individual to acquire an ever-increasing set of skills, not just to perform their respective job, but also to stay marketable.

8. Excel at Your Current Position:
Most of the times, actions speak louder than words and the best way to show that you deserve a promotion is to simply shine in the current position. Go beyond the call of duty and try to help your colleagues at work. Coming early to work and staying a few minutes late can also be beneficial in the long run. You can also try to come up with solutions to problems that haven’t been addressed and help the organization.

9. Be a Team Player:
In the present day work environment that craves for team work, it has become even more important to share successes with your team and avoid pointing finger when there are failures.

Being a team player also increases your reputation and your value to the organization.

10. Build Your Network:
The more people know about your strengths, weaknesses, abilities, values and proficiencies, the more likely will your name be discussed when opportunities arise. Your hard work will never be rewarded if nobody knows about you.

In addition, networking will also help you to learn much more about the organization and even increases the chances of landing a dream project by manifolds.

11. Don’t Expect To Be Rewarded At All Times:
In order to get promoted, you have to first show your worth. And in the process if you fail, don’t get discouraged. It is also essential to be confident and never be arrogant. Don’t get worried that your accomplishments are going un-noticed. The things that matters the most are your eagerness, professionalism, motivation, and thoughtfulness about decisions and interactions with others, not fat paychecks.

This is amongst the favorite interview questions of Jon Sterling, Co-Founder of Interview Circuit. As per him, most recruiters do not have a particular answer in mind when they ask this question, and use this question to see how a job applicant reacts.

He added that, thought a variety of answers would be satisfactory in this scenario, the best answer would be to let know that he / she is willing to stick with the job for as long as it takes to succeed. This answer demonstrates a candidate’s endurance and shows that he/she is in it for the long-run.

Alternatively, you could emphasize that you are willing to fail and learn from your mistakes, which demonstrates that you are not afraid of failures.

The worst answer in this scenario would be to mention a time frame, or saying “I don’t know”, as per Jon Sterling.

2. What Are You Most Proud In Your Career?
Kimberly Bishop, an Executive Recruiter, stated that she would often get blank stares from candidates as response to this question.

The best way to respond to this question is by stating one momentous accomplishment and explaining the reason why you are proud of it. You can also add the impact of this momentous accomplishment on your personal life.

3. What Skills Are You Lacking?
Ability to brief about your biggest weakness without causing any harm to your reputation in the eyes of the recruiter is one of the biggest challenges of a job interview.

As per Nicole Williams, LinkedIn’s Career Expert, the best response to this question would be, not to draw a negative attention on one’s self by stating something that would lead an employer to think that he / she is not a perfect-fit for the job. As per him, a straightforward and optimistic answer would be something like stating, “I tend to say yes and get over committed”.

4. Which Past Manager Has Liked You the Least, And What Will This Person Tell me About You?
This is a tricky question that is bound to test an individual’s self-awareness and also demands that they have a discussion about their weaknesses from the perspective of others. The best way to approach this question is to be positive about past relationship with your higher authorities at work, being frank about the things you have learnt and most of all being honest about the shortcomings, as per Allison VanNest, Head of Communications at Grammarly, which is a software suite service for perfecting written English.

Do bear in mind, not to cross the limit while self-criticizing and avoid pointing fingers at how annoying your previous boss was.

5. Tell Me What You Felt Was Unfair To You In Your Last Job?
This question is intended to uncover some of your shortcomings. And the best way to respond to this question is by providing honest and positive answers. You can tell the recruiter about an unfair circumstance and try to shift the focus towards the proactive steps that you took to deal with that

Happy reading.

3 Tips for Landing a Pleasing Career

Source: http://jobs.siliconindia.com/career-news/3-Tips-for-Landing-a-Pleasing-Career--nid-142564.html

Most of the career problems occur due to the fact that people are very bad at picking the right jobs. People initially think that they have selected a good job, but later, it turns out to be a bad option.

In the present day scenario, it seems almost impossible to land a good job on the first go and never think that you will be an exception.

But, with that said and done, most of us still aspire to be great at selecting the right career path for ourselves. So, here are a few guidelines to reflect on, irrespective of whether it’s your first career or your ‘n’th career, as reported by Penelope Trunk on Business Insider.

1. Don’t Believe The Hype:
Most people have a ‘grass-is-greener’ approach to career paths that are not their own. They tend to be lured by the hype created around a specific job and in all probability, end up in misery for the times to come. Hence it is very essential for young aspirants to think twice before jumping into conclusions.

2. Pick A Lifestyle, Not A Job Title:
Look at the lives of the most successful people around you, and self-introspect about the life you aspire to pursue. But do bear in mind to look deeper and never ignore the minor details. You simply can’t aspire to have a life that they are enjoying presently, and probably have to incorporate the life that led them to the current position.

3. Don’t Over-Commit:
Trying out a variety of different jobs is not a bad thing. Power your mind with the verity that job hopping is the sign of an individual who is actually trying to figure out the position where he/she is a perfect-fit. And quitting when you know that you are probably in the wrong spot is a positive step in the pursuit to land a dream job. Never think that, a resume with lots of wrong turns is disastrous. You can probably consult a mentor or an advisor and fix the resume so that it looks like you actually had purpose and focus.

The most important thing here is not to over commit to one particular career path.

3 Lessons To Creativity By The Genius Leonardo Da Vinci

Link: http://www.siliconindia.com/news/general/3-Lessons-To-Creativity-By-The-Genius-Leonardo-Da-Vinci-nid-155951-cid-1.html

The lesson 1: Improve your chances of success by networking and aligning yourself with successful people.

The lesson 2: Promote your ideas and your work with boldness and self-confidence. If you don’t believe in them enough to speak up for them, who will?

The Lesson 3: Same (Renaissance) can be said of the current “information age” too. It is like renaissance if the modern era. You can take full advantage of the opportunity to increase your creative potential by acquiring meaningful knowledge which the information age is offering you.

Creativity is the ultimate and most revered gift of humans. It is our identity. One of the most respected figures for creativity is Leonardo Da Vinci. He was painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. He epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. He was often been described as a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". Leonardo is perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. His paintings The Last Supper and Mona Lisa played on the human imaginations for centuries now. His design of flying machine, anatomical drawings of human body, his Vitruvian Manis based on the correlations of ideal human proportions, makes him a super human when it comes to creativity. Here are few lessons that you can learn from the creative genius Leonardo Da Vinci, as compiled by Lateral Action.

1 Align Yourself with power

Born out of wedlock to a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant woman, Leonardo had no formal education to help him survive the cruel times where life was cheap and executions a common place. Leonardo knew he needed to become a member of the famous guilds to succeed in life. But it is a rarity for the illegitimate child to rise above his natural born status and become successful, let alone become a very famous personality who will be remembered for eternity.

Leonardo understood the importance of mixing in the right circles. Early in his teenage years he travelled to the big city of Florence. There he intermingled with the best minds and most successful artists in the country, taking an apprenticeship in the renowned studio of Andrea del Verrocchio. He quickly outshone his teacher and was honored at the age of twenty, by being accepted into the highly esteemed Painters’ Guild of Florence.

The lesson 1: Improve your chances of success by networking and aligning yourself with successful people.

2 Don’t hide your light under a bushel

Leonardo designed the cannon and submitted it to the Royal Palace of Milan. He signed his letter to the king as “a genius designer of weapons in war”.

However his ideas were not been used until 400 years later, where his drawings inspired the tanks of the First World War.

In his letter, Da Vinci boldly offered his instruments of war to the Duke, which were full of ideas which were not explored before. He tempted His Excellency by saying “I can construct bridges; I can demolish every fortress; I can make a cannon; I can make armored wagons that carry artillery”.

As if that were not enough, in a side note he added “I can further execute sculpture in marble, bronze or clay, also in painting I can do as much as anyone else”. He concluded the letter by challenging the Duke: “If any of these things seem impossible or impractical, I offer myself ready to make a trial and prove myself worthy.”

The lesson 2: Promote your ideas and your work with boldness and self-confidence. If you don’t believe in them enough to speak up for them, who will?

3 New knowledge brings new creative possibilities

Renaissance, the period between 14th and 17th century, is the time when intricate knowledge of human anatomy was revealed. Classical sculpture was rediscovered. New painting techniques developed. Heavenly music was composed. And majestic architecture was built. The era defines its name, which means “Rebirth” in every aspect.

The knowledge that forwarded from Renaissance period helped the artists change the world by applying knowledge and combining it with their imagination.

The Lesson 3: Same can be said of the current “information age” too. It is like renaissance if the modern era. You can take full advantage of the opportunity to increase your creative potential by acquiring meaningful knowledge which the information age is offering you.
