The 37 Best Websites To Learn Something New

The 37 Best Websites To Learn Something New | Economic Development of Women | Scoop.it

Forget overpriced schools, long days in a crowded classroom, and pitifully poor results. These websites and apps cover myriads of science, art, and technology topics. They will teach you practically anything, from making hummus to building apps in node.js, most of them for free.


There is absolutely no excuse for you not to master a new skill, expand your knowledge, or eventually boost your career. You can learn interactively at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. It’s hard to imagine how much easier it can possibly be. Honestly, what are you waiting for?...

I found this article to be both enlightening and informative.  I also found myself in the article because I have not applied for a lot of positions because I felt that I did not meet all of the qualifications.  Now I feel that I have been missing out on a lot of opportunities because I would not exercise my faith in myself and I was standing in the way of my promotion.

How to Break The Procrastination Doom Loop

How to Break The Procrastination Doom Loop | Economic Development of Women | Scoop.it

Daniel Watson's curator insight, August 28, 2014 11:06 PM


One of the worst enemies of productivity is procrastination, and any self-employed business owner with tendencies towards procrastination, needs to be particularly mindful of the price that can be paid for procrastination.


Recent studies have found that procrastination happens because people delay action because they feel like they are in the wrong mood to complete a task, and then they assume that their mood will change in the near future and that the work that needs to be done will then get done.


This excellent article, suggest that time is not the issue and emotions are what leads to procrastination, and it offers good suggestions to avoid getting into a never ending procrastination loop.

Why Your Age Matters More Than You Think At Work

Why Your Age Matters More Than You Think At Work | Economic Development of Women | Scoop.it

For years, offices have been filled with the fresh-faced younger generation who fill the entry-level desks, the established middle who fill the management roles and the older senior executives who are near retirement. But as tech-savvy millennials enter the workforce causing Gen-X-ers and baby boomers to step out of their comfort zones, talk of the generational divide is everywhere.


Recently, national staffing company Spherion released their 2014 Emerging Workforce Study. The study of over 2,000 employees revealed that beyond different communication styles, one’s age also impacts how employees feel about their own career potential and can influence their perception of their coworkers’ and supervisors’ abilities. They found that millennials are more judgemental of the capabilities of their coworkers and more opinionated about their own career opportunities than their older workplace peers.
