Sosiaaliseen mediaa kirjoitettavat tekstikommentit ovat aina lyhyitä. Itselleni ainakin tämän oppiminen vaatii tekemistä. Pitkät lauseet ja ajatuksiin johdattelut ovat ainakin itselleni tavanomaisempia kirjoittamisen tapoja. Oheisessa jutussa ja sen linkeissä on hyviä konkreettisia vinkkejä, joilla voi kehittää omaa sosiaaliseen mediaan kirjoittamista. Ja näiden vinkkien jälkeen sanojen muuttaminen teoiksi onkin se seuraava haaste! :)

When I read this quote today, I could not wait to share it.  I don't know if anyone has ever taken on the challenge of eliminating excuses all together; however, I can tell you it is not as easy as it sounds.


I challenged myself over a year ago to start removing words and habits that did not serve me.  I initially  thought that I rarely made excuses; however, when it was on my radar I started noticing that was not the case.


I would make comments to my kids like, I didn't get to that because....then I noticed that I was making excuses for everyone around me (my family, friends, etc.)


It took some time to re-wire my thoughts, words, and actions. 


So the challenge is this:  for those of you who have done this, what advice and lessons do you have to share?


For everyone else -- why not challenge yourself to eliminate excuses.  The huge benefit that I noticed is that I hold myself to higher standards and hold myself to be accountable for my actions and decisions.


Would love to hear your thoughts!


Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

The job of the resume is to talk for you, sell you to the recruiters, and Land you the interview!  So now that you have the interview, we should not rely on experience to land you the job.

 

Besides your experience and skills...why would you hire you for the position?  What makes you the best candidate for the job?  If everyone else had more experience and skills than you -- what strengths and competencies would separate you from the competition?

 

Do yourself a favor and reflect on the above three questions.  If you don't know why you are the best candidate how will the interviewer know?

I'm really loving this article by Larry Kunz! I'm one of those regular viewers of House Hunters myself, and as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) homeowner who has learned to see past needing granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, I understand his analogy very well. (In fact, I just did a kitchen renovation almost a year ago, and we went with quartz/silestone instead of granite, and I've been upgrading appliances one by one to stainless over the course of seven years, so they are all now stainless.)  There are needs, and there are wants, and Larry does a really nice job getting tech writers to think about how to differenciate between those things in our content. This is content strategy at its most basic level. Read this NOW!

5 Factors to Consider Before Accepting a Job Offer

5 Factors to Consider Before Accepting a Job Offer | education | Scoop.it

When considering a new job, it is important to ensure the grass will truly be greener on the other side.

 

While working for a new employer often helps an employee's career, it can also be a detriment. A new study from Spherion Staffing Services revealed that long-term career advancement doesn't always happen by moving from one employer to another, but rather by staying with one company.

 

Specifically, 63% of workers said that long-term career advancement depends on staying with an employer for a long time. Additionally, 61% of workers today said that changing jobs every few years usually damages a person's long-term career prospects.
