When facing a career setback, if you feel anger or despair, recognize those feelings as a deeper need for something else. It could be growth, change, or a new challenge or purpose.
You may not be able to control whether those needs manifest in the form of a pay raise, promotion, or job title, but you can control other aspects of your journey. Recognizing this is the first step to recovery.
TikTok is the home of many viral videos in which influencers and enthusiasts do a ‘show and tell’ of make-up related products and other oddities. The social media marketing strategy shows quick and tangible results, with the advertised products getting out of stock in minutes.
Products like apple juice, rollerblades and stuffed animals show a jump in demand just as the video gains popularity, resulting in manufacturers taking advantage of this phenomenon and using TikTok to market specially created products.
Pressurizing employees to play hard according to your company policies and work culture can be counterproductive. Straightforward motivation, designed to keep employees working feels superficial, unimaginative and even hostile.
Trying to convince employees by being nice to them and telling them what they should do doesn’t seem to work in the modern workforce full of knowledge workers. This is because the focus is on what the employer wants, and not on the employee.
There is an assumption among many that if someone is an achiever at a young age, the unique talent must be an innate ability, and not slogging. The extraordinary milestones that are met before the usual timeframes feel disruptive, and unsettles the status quo.
The truth is many young achievers have spent years working hard, and overcoming substantial challenges to reach the celebrated milestones.
