Analyze Yourself

Analyze Yourself

I’ve never met a successful person who did not build a career on their strengths. It simply does not exist.

No one can perform well by doing something they are bad at.

Sure, you can improve your weaknesses. But it’s not an effective strategy.

So figure out how you perform. Identify your strengths. Then, go to the next step.

Identify an industry that fits your strength

Identify an industry that fits your strength

This is a tough one. On one side, I believe that we should pursue a career we are passionate about. But on the other side, I think we should NOT do something we’re bad at.

So what should you do if you love something but suck at it? My opinion is to not pursue a career in that field. Treat it like a hobby instead. A lot of people love to make music, but they are not good enough to earn a living. But does that mean you should stop making music? Hell no! Go and jam with your friends — in your spare time.

  • The bottom line is this: Only pursue a career that fits your strengths.

I know this is somewhat of a limited view. Some people even call it pessimistic. But I see it as realism.

Improve your universal skills

Improve your universal skills

Skills like writing, leadership, personal effectiveness, and persuasion are helpful to all professionals. Whether you are a coder or carpenter, you want to provide value to others. To keep doing that, you need those universal skills.

The earlier you start improving your universal skills, the more likely it is that you will be ready when you get an opportunity.

Start at the bottom.

Start at the bottom.

You might not see any benefits during the first few years. It’s a hard concept to grasp. Because you also don’t want to waste your time.

  • No, you still have to be smart. If you don’t see any results, be hard on yourself. But always be willing to start at the bottom.
  • Forget about your ego.
  • No one is good enough to do certain things. And at some level, we’re all students.

Just look at all the kids with rich parents who give them everything. Those kids often don’t understand the value of hard work and how hard it is to make a living. There’s no honor in getting a free pass.

Keep developing Yourself

Keep developing Yourself

There’s nothing more exciting than the rush you get when you get new ideas or when you daydream about the future.

At the same time, when you have no outlook on the future at all, you feel stuck and depressed. Am I right?

  • Every day, we must learn and develop ourselves.

and before you go out and say it, I will: “That’s hard!”

You and I both know that a fulfilling career doesn’t come for free. The price is hard work and effort.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
