5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers

Many people hate change; contemplating the unknown is scary. So many stick with familiar things even though they no longer fit. This is especially true of careers. Sometimes people get stuck in a career direction or work environment that makes them terribly unhappy, and they stay there because it's tough to change careers once you have gained experience, power, and good compensation.


People often end up in the wrong careers by accident. They start out with a job and become proficient, so they advance and make a good living. They may even start a company in that field. They get so focused on growth, meeting objectives, or making the money to support their lifestyle, they don't realize how toxic their life has become.

Recognise any of these? - I felt many of them in my career but one that is not mentioned is guilt. Guilt that you are doing a job that many would crave for; guilt that you feel this way at all; guilt that you constantly keep asking that there must be more to life yet how would others that you love feel about a sudden urge to change?

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

You’ve likely heard that multitasking is problematic, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain.

 

A Special Skill?


But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a lot and feel that it boosts their performance—were actually worse at multitasking than those who like to do a single thing at a time.

Multitasking in meetings and other social settings indicates low self- and social-awareness, two emotional intelligence (EQ) skills that are critical to success at work.

People who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information cannot pay attention, recall information, or switch from one job to another as well as those who complete one task at a time.

Aaron Curtis's curator insight, October 9, 2014 9:08 AM

Well I have to say this would be a home run. Throughout high school, my jobs and even college, I have noticed that multitasking has become somewhat of an acquired trait. This article speaks on some key points that relate not only to PR practitioners, but aims towards students as well. Staying focus on one task at a given moment can help reduce the "noise" in your head; Keeping that in mind, working on one project at a time also provides you with a window for a more accurate end result
