How to Have a Positive Mindset at Work
It often seems like it's the norm to dread walking into work every morning -- but it doesn't have to be.

It can be difficult to stay positive if you concentrate on all the negative aspects of your job and what it entails. But what would happen if you decided to change your mindset so that you could see things in a different light and view your obstacles as opportunities rather than setbacks?

According to Harvard Medical School, a positive mindset can keep your heart healthy as well as reduce stress and make you a happier person. It can be challenging to remind yourself to stay positive -- sometimes life happens and things don’t go your way. That’s normal, but it’s essential to remember that it’s not the end of the world and you can conquer anything if you train your brain to think about it the right way.

If you’re trying to cultivate a more positive mindset at work, here are a few tips to help you get started.

Practice gratitude.
This isn’t just useful advice for work life, but day-to-day life as well. Gratitude is something that should be mindfully practiced every single day so that, even when work gets chaotic or issues arise, you’re able to remember the positives, too.

Research by Harvard Medical School found that gratitude is linked to happiness and helps people think and feel more positively. When you’re actively going over the aspects of your life or your day that make you feel thankful, it changes your perspective from negative to positive.

Imagine all the wonderful things you could accomplish more efficiently if you focused on how to achieve those goals rather than complaining about them. It makes a world of difference in your attitude as well as your work ethic. Try to write down at least two or three things you’re grateful for every day while at work and make it a continuous habit.

Help your colleagues.
You know that warm feeling you get when you do something for someone else without expecting anything in return? There’s a science behind it. Several studies outlined in Psychology Today demonstrate that people who perform kind acts for others without expecting anything in return feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled. That’s why it’s essential to apply this to the people you work with every day.

Think about it. Why wouldn’t you want to cultivate a healthy, teamwork-oriented relationship with your colleagues? If you have to see them every day, you want to make sure you’re nurturing a positive environment so you can manifest a positive mindset when it comes to work life. Just because it’s work doesn’t mean it can’t be a place you enjoy, even on the hard days.

Stop complaining.
A little venting session here and there is normal; everyone has their frustrations, and as humans, it’s natural to feel the need to let them out. However, that doesn’t mean the workplace is the spot to do it or the appropriate company to do it with. Is there an upcoming project that you’re dreading having to complete? Do you have a meeting next week you’d rather not attend?

It’s OK to feel negative emotions concerning different aspects of your job, but if the reality is that you just love to complain, it’s time to stop that behavior. This will only hinder you from doing your best work and put you behind. Stop thinking of hurdles as unfair and instead view them as a way to perform better.

Smile often.
Research conducted by the University of Kansas found that smiling reduces stress and lowers your heart rate during tense situations. When you’re facing obstacles and all you want to do is scream or rip someone’s head off, take a second to relax your breathing and practice smiling instead.

Whether you’re faking it or not, smiling can help trick your brain into believing you’re in an ideal situation or feeling content even if you aren’t. When you come in contact with your coworkers, be friendly and smile. Wearing a scowl will present you as standoffish and will give your colleagues the wrong idea about you. It’s always better to let people see the best of you, especially when you’re stuck with them.

Over to you.
If you want to live a life at work you’re proud of, carrying around a negative attitude is the last way to do it. How you present yourself in a professional environment shows others whether or not you’re worth working with, and you want to leave a lasting impression on everyone you meet. Cultivating a positive mindset takes time and practice, especially if you’re used to a negative train of thought, but it can enhance your professional life drastically.

The Emotional Fallout of Inconsequential Thinking

Over the past few months, I have been on a journey of redefining and re-finding myself. It has been a path of twists and turns and emotional ups and downs.

Throughout this journey, I have been trying to find all the “whys” of how I became where I am now. With deep reflection, a lot of self talk, and quiet moments of deliberate consideration, I came to the conclusion that I seem to attract people who think and act without consequential thought or purpose. It is the reason I have been abused in the past. It is also the reason that I am an empath.

Consequential Action and Thought
If you think like I do, you consider outcomes, or consequences, prior to making any decisions. It could be as simple as voicing a thought, or as complex as departing from a long term marriage.

Consequential thought processes take time, energy and patience. For a moment, an idea or response comes into mind, and you take time to consider how your words or actions will impact other people. You also consider a variety of outcomes, or scenarios, prior to following through on your thought process.

Empathy, or often sympathy, aids in consequential thinking. In fact, an empathetic response is what drives your consequential words or actions. You take the time to consider other people’s feelings and emotions . You consider the repercussions of what comes from you, and act or speak accordingly. Before speaking or acting, you look into the future, and see the potential harm you can be causing others. Sometimes it makes you stop what you are saying or doing, for fear of damaging someone else’s emotions.

With that said, the consequential thinker will often NOT act or speak, allowing others to control the outcome. There are pros and cons to this, as there is a chance that other people’s emotional response may be the catalyst for not making a choice that would be best for you.

As an empath, I have found myself caught up in the webs of people who act or speak without consequence, and I understand what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a lack of consideration. I am well aware of what it feels like when others act, or think, without considering the fallout of their inconsequential thinking processes.

Inconsequential Thinkers
Acting and responding to situations, without consequence, has many ripple effects. These people are impatient, fast thinkers and talkers, and are often perceived as narcissistic or selfish.

Say, for example, you are in a situation were you can make two choices. One will cause emotional, or even physical harm to another person, and the other choice will not harm others, but will not benefit you either. What do you do?

Inconsequential thinkers make choices based on their own needs, wants, or desires. They may not even consider what will happen to themselves, when they think and act rashly.

Here is a real life scenario, that I actually just went through. This is a classic case of inconsequential thinking:

I was gifted a Bucket List gift to go to Greece, by my “then” boyfriend, for Christmas and my 50th birthday. He had gifted it to me while we were still “doing well” in our relationship, but something happened before the trip that made me reconsider my life with him. I chose to walk away, and begin my life without him.

Throughout our breakup period, we were still keeping in touch, and he was begging me to return. Although I struggled with his attempts, I held fast to my decision to stay friends. I chose to not go on the trip with him, even though he asked me repeatedly to go. I simply didn’t feel it was safe for me to go. My mental health was in a healing process and I didn’t want it to revert. So, I opted out of my bucket list trip.

The reason for Greece as a destination was because I love the culture, the food, and the amazing country that Greece is. It has been on my list for as long as I could remember. I introduced him to all of what Greece could potentially offer, and although he never embraced it to the point I did, he enjoyed the possibility of going together.

After I declined to go along on the trip with my ex, I suggested that he gift me my portion of the trip and I would take my daughter along. He would have none of that, and honestly dismissed the discussion. Fair enough.

The week we were to depart on my bucket list trip, he sent me a couple of gift cards from an airline, so that I could plan my own trip. I will admit, I was touched slightly, by his generosity, and I emailed him a thank you note. I felt that perhaps, he was coming around to consequential thought for the first time, and it moved me. That is, until I discovered the WHY of his sudden generosity.

As it turned out, he opted to take someone along, on the gift he had given me. She was a woman he had known only for a few short hours, and who he met on a dating app. Not only did he take her along, but one of our dear friends drove the two of them to the airport, leaving her vehicle in the driveway of the house he and I shared. I still had contents in the house, and due to her vehicle being there, it impeded my ability to back up a truck to remove my items.

When I questioned him about it, he actually said, “This is just a good time, no strings attached trip”. In other words, he was taking her along, without thinking of the consequences of his actions. Nice.

The effects of his choice, without thinking of the consequences of how he would affect others, had a serious emotional impact on me. He shared with me that “this woman” made the choice, last minute, to jump on a plane with a stranger and fly away with him. His rash decision not only affected me, but it affected the relationship we could have had, as amicable human beings. It impacted our friends. It made the people who surround us do a double take and ask more questions. It turned our “friendship” into one of animosity and pain. I reacted and tried to hurt him back, and a shit storm developed in a sky, that was once simply overcast.

That is what inconsequential thinking is. It is acting based on what you want, desire, or think is best for you, regardless of how it will affect others.

This was a huge A-HA moment for me, and in a matter of moments, a flood of flashbacks took over. All of the times that he and I had issues in our relationship were the effects of his quick, rash decisions, without considering the consequences or the impact that he left behind. He has always been an impatient person who has always made decisions based on his needs, rather than ours, or even mine. Without getting into further detail, I will say that there is a long history of his quick reactions, and that was ultimately the demise of our life together.

I am a consequential thinker, and he is not. I am not saying that either of us is right or wrong, but I will say that we did not live happily together because of his left and my right way of opposing thought processes.

The Pros and Cons
There are pros and cons of both ways of thought or actions.

The Cons
Inconsequential thought can be dangerous. It leads others to see you as selfish, arrogant and aggressive. It also lends to a fallout of unpredictable recourse.

Consequential thought process also has its risks. It can make other perceive you as a pushover, or a doormat, allowing you to put yourself in a situation where you could be taken advantage of. If you are the type of person who evaluates outcomes before actions or words, you can be see as a weaker link in a tribe. People will get to know you as the empathetic one, and you may appear weaker, rather than someone with strength and patience.

The Pros
People who react, respond, or act without considering consequences appear like strong, or “type A” people. They are quick, respondent, and they get shit done, without hesitation. Large corporations thrive on people who are quick respondents and who stop at nothing to make shit happen. They are often seen as leaders. Typically, they are seen as people who succeed.

Others who think and react after considering who and what their actions will affect are seen as kindhearted people. Others perceive them as patient, concerned, and calm in their reactions. They take the time to think before allowing their greed or selfishness to take over them. They can be held in other’s eyes as martyrs. They are the humans who make slow changes, and follow through by ensuring that their decisions benefit others. People who donate to causes, or who fight for peace and rights are the humans who think through, consequentially.

In Conclusion…
The two ways of thought, be is consequential or inconsequential are a matter of choices that people make. It really boils down to how you see others in relationships, be they work, intimate, familial, or otherwise. It is also determined by the level of respect you carry for others, and your inner self need for self fulfillment.

Self fulfillment is also determined by whether pleasing others makes you happy, or if pleasing yourself is held in the highest regard.

Ultimately, it is your life, and how you choose to act or respond is your choice. It is your accountability. How it affects others is often unseen until it is too late. Another factor of how you choose to act relies heavily on the stock you take of how others perceive you. If you are not concerned with how others see you and your actions, the way you think becomes irrelevant. On the other hand, if you hold relationships and acquaintances close to your heart, how you act can, and most likely will affect their perception and will make an impact on your relationship.

It can be a gift to consider consequences prior to making choices, yet it can also be a curse. If you are someone who is incapable of considering outcomes before you react, or respond to a situation, you may be more comfortable with yourself, knowing that your intent is purely to appease yourself.

The choice is up to you.

Why Small Continuous Improvement Leads To Success

Small Continuous Improvements
“Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” — Vince Lombardi
The smallest step towards your goals can lead to your greatest breakthroughs. Yes, I realise you’ve heard this message before, however have you ever contemplated its significance? We all want to achieve our goals and highest aspirations, that’s why you’re reading this article. But few are willing to put in the work and hours to realise success. Only a few will sacrifice their time and energy for weeks, months and sometimes decades to achieve their vision. How about you? Where do you stand in the grand scheme of things? Have you been labouring away at a goal for a while? Have you experienced any breakthroughs or is it still a work in progress? Don’t despair if you haven’t achieved the success you desire; it doesn’t mean it’s not coming together.

Cultivating success involves attending to the smallest details that may show little results initially because they are foundations that lead to the realisation of our goals. Let’s face it, the smallest tasks can be laborious and tedious at the best of times. Mostly, they are tasks that must be attended to daily, yet many find excuses to skip over them because of the boredom involved. How do you feel about this? Are there tasks you dislike doing, yet know they must be done because they contribute to your goals? It is what author Robert Maurer refers to in One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way as looking for solutions in uncomfortable places: “When life gets scary and difficult, we tend to look for solutions in places where it is easy or at least familiar to do so, and not in the dark, uncomfortable places where real solutions might lie.”

Small continuous improvements lead to success because just like the compound effect, if we focus on real improvements and constant practice, the success we yearn for may be closer than we think. Now, let me clarify what I mean by success in this context. Success denotes achieving a desirable outcome related to a goal or effort and may not result in an intentional victory. It is what the Stanford Professor of psychology Carol Dweck refers to in her acclaimed book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success as a Growth Mindset vs a Fixed Mindset.

I won’t go into much detail here other than to say, when we have a Growth Mindset, our focus turns to continuous improvement and excellence. These are the building blocks to success as long as we assess and refine our practices to achieve our desired outcome. Similarly, undesirable outcomes may also be beneficial providing we learn from them. You no doubt know how the Post-It Note came to be invented? Through a series of accidents, Dr. Spencer Silver, a chemist at 3M was trying to invent a strong adhesive, but instead came up with a weak one which became the Post-It Note as we know it.

Be Purposeful And Clear In Your Intentions
“Continuous improvement requires systematic evaluation. Continuous improvement requires unfiltered evaluation.” — Anonymous
In a similar vein, the Japanese are well known for a method called the Kaizen approach which involves small, continuous and incremental improvements to achieve a desired outcome. It involves a process of iterations like many software companies and apps undergo today. If we improve at 1% a day, consider the result of that improvement over 12 months. Few people focus on small improvements because it can be tedious, and it rarely delivers immediate results. This same process works in just about every area of our life, particularly our health and well-being. For example, when was the last time you set out to lose weight and became discouraged by the third or fourth week? Most people abandon their health campaign at this point preferring to find an easier way that delivers immediate results. But as you know, immediate results don’t translate to long term efficacy.

If we want to cultivate more success, we must focus on activities that deliver results and sometimes these can be tedious tasks, which explains why many people abandon them. If we set out to pursue a goal, then gradual and continuous improvements is something we must take into account, even if we cannot see the signs of success early in the piece. The goal is much too important to leave to chance and so we must give it life by attending to the smallest tasks. Equally, we ought to focus on the personal growth that takes place within us while pursuing our goals. Success is of little value if we have worked hard to achieve it and are unfulfilled once attained. So be purposeful in your intentions towards your goals. If you work towards it with a concerted effort, success may be closer than you think.

Soft Skills and Personal Development / How To Say ‘No’ Without Feeling Guilty

How To Say ‘No’ Without Feeling Guilty

Your Time Is Sacred
“There are only two words that will always lead you to success. Those words are yes and no. Undoubtedly, you’ve mastered saying yes. So start practising saying no. Your goals depend on it!” — Jack Canfield

A pile of documents lands on Eva’s desk while she’s busy answering a backlog of emails. Hours ago, she was lamenting how the pressure at work is mounting up. “I can’t keep this up,” she thinks to herself. “Something has to give or I’m out of here.” “Why do I have more work than I can handle?” she wonders, slipping between daydreaming and the reams of stacked documents that drown out her field of vision. “Why can’t I say no?” “Because you want others to like you,” a familiar voice echoes back. Eva’s predicament is one we all identify with because it happens to us often. The common thread in this narrative is knowing when to say ‘no’ instead of giving in to others’ demands.

A life without complications arises when we say no to distractions. Many struggle to say no because of an inherent need to be liked. However, this comes at a risk of being taken advantage of. It is easy to say ‘yes,’ but when was the last time you said ‘no’ to a request from a friend or colleague? We are terrified to come across as rude, so we skirt around the issue and delay our response. Yet, this only makes matters worse. Do you know people who are comfortable saying no to demands? Consider how they take command of the situation and don’t allow others to impose upon their time which they treat as sacred.

A place where our time is often disrupted is the work environment, through emails, colleagues and our bosses’ requests. I often hear people discuss how exhausted they are at the end of a working day, having said yes to many requests. They put their own work on hold to satisfy other people’s needs. I appreciate this message by author Greg McKeown who writes in Essentialism: “Every time we check email, we’re checking somebody else’s agenda.” Consider the strength of that statement. McKeown reminds us to be mindful of our time and not to take on more than we can manage, otherwise we risk being dictated by other people’s agendas.

The Need for Acceptance
“When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘no’ to yourself.” — Paulo Coelho
Saying no is a war shield to fend off distractions, so you can focus on what is important. Our time is precious and should be guarded with fierce intensity so others don’t encroach upon our freedom. You’ve probably noticed that every time you agree to something against your wishes, you feel bad about it later. You run through a mental dialogue about how you might have dealt with the situation. Yet, it’s too late by then.

I assure you, saying no has a nobler intent than you might think. It conveys the strength of your vision or goals and you refuse to be distracted. It signifies commitment, passion and purpose on your part and mustn’t be misinterpreted as avoidance. However, beneath our inability to say no lies a strong need for acceptance that dominates our interactions with others. People will not misinterpret no as selfishness, as long as we communicate our intentions. We might acknowledge their request, yet convey we have something important to attend to and do not wish to be sidetracked. We may reconsider it at a later stage once our work is completed. The benefit of saying no is to filter out those who infringe upon our time. For want of a better description, I call them gravediggers because they draw the life out of us.

Saying No Without Regret
“It comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don’t get on the wrong track or try to do too much.” — Steve Jobs
Saying no relieves us of unwanted stress. We don’t have to contend with conflicts where we have undertaken a project or invitation against our wishes. It affords us the time to attend to important life areas. Ultimately, we want to engage in more of these pursuits, instead of being obligated to please others. In some cultures, saying no is frowned upon. There is repressed anger amongst people and family members who are obliged to say yes. Let’s not mix our words — saying no is not disrespectful. We must convey our intentions in an assertive, yet respectful manner to balance harmony and diplomacy. Remember: Whenever we say yes to something, we’re saying no to something else. We’re putting others first before our own needs, which can cause stress.

The key to saying no without regret is to recognise the feelings that arise during our interactions with others. Why? We become familiar where our body holds tension and are more likely to notice it the next time it arises in our contact with people. We are being dictated by negative reactions and so we avoid them by saying yes to appease others. Author Brendon Burchard reminds in The Motivation Manifesto: “We must take a long, unflinching look at our habit of giving our lives and agendas over to others or to meaningless things. We have to say no more often. We have to focus more. We have to fight harder to safeguard our time and our dreams and our souls.”

In Eva’s case, she taught her work colleagues how to treat her, even if she is unaware of it. She underestimated her self-worth by choosing to be liked in place of preserving her time. It boils down to knowing our true worth and standing in our own power. As we do, others recognise our genuineness and will treat us accordingly. By honouring our authenticity, we move from being powerless to empowered and take command of our life by adhering to our highest values.

Tony Fahkry
Here Is How to Cultivate It
Remote workers thrive in workplaces with regular thank-yous.

"Remote companies have no culture." When people think of a remote workplace, the first thought is often one of distance and disconnection. But this is simply not true. It is possible to form deep connections -- and yes, culture -- at a 100 percent distributed company. It starts with gratitude.

A recent study found that being regularly thanked at work can lead to better sleep, fewer headaches, and healthier eating. The benefits of this to the individual are obvious, but it is also clear to see how it impacts the organization -- fewer sick days and more contented people who are able to bring their best to each day. 

I have seen this at Aha!, where I am the co-founder and CEO. Our company has always been fully distributed and we have a culture of gratitude. Contrary to what you might think, these two attributes go hand in hand--though, admittedly, it does require extra work to make it happen, especially as our company has rapidly grown to nearly 100 teammates.

We make this a large priority because gratitude helps us pause and recognize how important small acts of kindness are -- even when we are not physically in the same building. It also inspires the team to stay committed, giving more effort and care.

So, how do you start creating an environment with regular thank-yous? Here's how to foster a culture of gratitude on your remote team:

1. Build team spirit.
The more that co-workers connect with one another, the more appreciative they will be of the organization as a whole. Researchers at Binghamton University found that fostering a work environment where people feel included and valued leads to higher satisfaction and trust among employees. All teammates at Aha! can opt into a program that randomly pairs them with someone in the company for a quick get-to-know-you video chat once a month.

2. Create space for thanks.
You need to give the team a place to share their thanks. Our team practices something we call "hatitude." It happens in person when our entire company meets twice a year. The idea is that teammates take turns donning a goofy hat while everyone showers them with gratitude (thus the name "hatitude"). But we also do this every day by sharing gratitude in our company's group messaging tool. This works because the messages are heartfelt and specific like, "Jennifer never hesitates when I ask for help. Today she immediately said yes to jump in last-minute and cover a customer call."

3. Celebrate big achievements.
Celebrate the team regularly and often -- especially when they accomplish something great. One way to do this is to reserve time at the end of video meetings to acknowledge great work, asking people to get on camera and comment on a major goal or project they just completed. You could also invite everyone to a virtual party. Have folks hop on a video call to give rounds of applause and maybe even a toast. And when new folks join the team, be sure to make a celebration out of that, too.

4. Give back generously.
Remote teams can not only give back to society; they can also do it with more impact -- we span various states and even countries. We have a much broader reach. This is why we established a program called Aha! Cares. Teammates can nominate a nonprofit in their community to receive a financial donation from the company. Additionally, we offer an annual paid volunteer day, and our whole team volunteers together when we meet up in person -- something our teammates often cite as one of their favorite memories of the year.

Creating a culture of gratitude is more important now than it has ever been. The world needs more kindness and more people who are willing to lift others up. You can be that person to lift your team up. You simply need to commit each day to making gratitude a priority.

There Are 6 Types of Facebook Posts You Should Never Do. You've Probably Done All of Them |Your Facebook friends will thank you to just stop

What exactly is undesirable behavior on Facebook? It's a tougher question than it seems because smart people can really disagree. Take, for example, a blog post by the incomparable Tim Urban, whose work I adore and who usually seems to me full of all kinds of wisdom. But not this time.

Urban argues forcefully that people who constantly post about the good things that happen to them (e.g. "Guess who got into Med School!!!!) or about how happy they are and how much they love their partner, or the mundane things they're up to that day ("Off to the gym, then class reading,") basically are narcissists who should just shut up.

Sorry, Tim, but you're completely wrong. I use Facebook daily, but only for a few minutes at a time. I'd like to use it more, and I would if there were more of the kinds of information that Urban finds distasteful, and less of...well everything else that clutters up Facebook.

Let me just start by saying that if you're my Facebook friend and you get accepted to medical school, please post about it so that I can keep up on your doings and congratulate you. My stepson and his kids live 3,000 miles away so I'm hugely appreciative that every time one of them gains an academic honor or helps a team win a sporting event he posts it on Facebook so my husband and I can stay in the loop. And, yes, I even want to see those mundane daily life posts. One of my favorite social media posts ever was this, from a very accomplished chef and food writer I know: "Popcorn for dinner. It happens. You?"

To me, all of this goes to the heart of what makes Facebook valuable, or potentially valuable if you can get past the animal videos and political outrage and inspirational quotes overlaid on photos of sunsets--actually finding out what the people you know are doing and what's happening in their lives.

So, with all due respect to Urban, here's my own list of behaviors that could make me unfriend you on Facebook. See how many of them you agree or disagree with. (And feel free to reach out on Twitter or by email and let me know.)

1. Relentless posting.
Some people post to Facebook 10 or 20 times a day or more. (I'm talking status updates and shares, not responses to other people's posts.) If your family member is in the emergency room and you're posting all those updates to let people know what's going on, that's one thing. If you're sitting around bored and just sharing everything you come across that's slightly amusing or upsetting, it's time to apply a filter.

2. TMI.
I know I just said I want to know what's happening with my Facebook friends, and I do. But I have one Facebook friend who's barely an acquaintance in real life, who's having some chronic medical issues and feels the need to post about every bit of discharge and to recount, word for word, every frustrating conversation she has with a doctor or nurse. I feel bad for her and I suspect she's lonely and doesn't have a friend or loved one to share her troubles with. Still, at some point you need to tone it down, and perhaps change the subject.

3. Cryptic posts.
This is one place where Urban and I agree. Please stop posting updates that express an emotional event but provide no specifics whatsoever. A former friend of mine used to regularly post things like this: "Sometimes when you find out what people really are like you just feel like giving up."

This seemed to be a very effective tactic for her because her vague lament would invariably garner some equally vague expressions of support. "So sorry you're going through this!" "Hang in there, we care about you!" Reading through the threads, it was quite clear that the people responding had no more idea of what she was talking about than I did.

Posts like these are emotionally manipulative and unfair and you can wear out your welcome fast. Either be (at least somewhat) specific or keep it to yourself.

4. Automatic posts.
Anything you post to Facebook should be posted by you. That sounds obvious, but it can be difficult to do because so many apps in are eager to post to Facebook on your behalf and they try hard to wheedle your permission to do so. If you blog, your blogging software will want to auto-post to Facebook. If you play any kind of game that anyone else on Facebook plays, that game will relentlessly nag you for permission to post your accomplishment to Facebook every time you complete a level. If you listen to music, your music playing app will want to tell your Facebook friends what's on your playlist .

This makes perfect sense from the apps' point of view because whenever they get permission to post something on your timeline, you've provided them with free advertising and what appears to be your personal endorsement. Liking the Facebook page of a business or individual has the same effect, because now that person or company's every promotional post will appear in your news feed. In both cases, you're allowing people other than yourself to post whatever they like where all your friends will see it. Think very carefully before you give anyone that kind of power.

5. Engagement bait.
What is engagement bait? A post whose main purpose seems to be to encourage your Facebook friends to share it, like it, comment on it, or tag it. For example: A long and generic ode to the wonderfulness of sisters that ends: "If you love your sister, share this on your timeline." Or one that ends, "Are you paying attention? If so, type 'Yes' in the comments." And on and on.

I'm not the only one who hates posts like these. Facebook does too, which is why it's taking action to downgrade these posts so that fewer people see them. That's another good reason not to waste your time on them.

6. News items that you haven't checked out.
We now know that Russians, posing as Americans, disseminated a monstrous amount of fake information over social media during the 2016 election season and ever since. Much of their interference seems designed to do one thing only: Make Americans in differing political camps dislike an distrust each other.

The Russians are extremely good at this, and Facebook is a powerful tool that has helped them accomplish their goals. In one instance, they organized pro-immigration and an anti-immigration rallies in the same place on the same day so that the two groups could shout at each other, and hundreds of Americans showed up and did exactly that, until the encounter turned confrontational.

It can be hard to tell who's behind an event or a news item, but it's worth taking a few minutes to try and find out. Before you post or share anything, especially if it's a call to action or a news item that makes you angry, do a Google or other search and check into the organization that reported the news or organized the event. What do other news sources say about the organization or the story? If more of us took more time to fact-check before we post or share news items, it would make it much harder for Russian operatives to launch disinformation campaigns.

চাকরি না পাওয়ার চার কারণ

চাকরি খুঁজছেন? কিছু সীমাবদ্ধতার কারণে স্বপ্নের সোনার হরিণটির কাছাকাছি গিয়েও আপনাকে বারবার ব্যর্থতার মুখোমুখি হতে হচ্ছে? একদমই হতাশ হবেন না। মনে রাখবেন, প্রত্যেকেরই কিছু না কিছু দুর্বলতা আছে। আবার বিশেষ কিছু গুণও আছে সবার মধ্যে। তাই এসব দুর্বলতাকেই শক্তিতে রূপান্তর করতে হবে। তাহলেই নাগাল পাবেন সোনার হরিণের।
চাকরিপ্রার্থীরা চারটি সাধারণ দুর্বলতার কারণে প্রতিযোগিতার দৌড়ে পিছিয়ে পড়েন। জেনে নিন সেই সীমাবদ্ধতাগুলো কী কী এবং কীভাবে কাটিয়ে উঠবেন।

১.অভিজ্ঞতার ঘাটতি
যে পেশায় কাজ করার জন্য আবেদন করছেন, সে বিষয়ে হয়তো আপনার অভিজ্ঞতা খুব কম। তাই অন্যান্য যোগ্যতা থাকা সত্ত্বেও আপনাকে বিবেচনা করা হচ্ছে না। এসব ক্ষেত্রে আবেদনপত্র ও সাক্ষাৎকারে (ইন্টারভিউ) নিজের অন্যান্য দক্ষতা বিশেষভাবে উল্লেখ করুন। আর নিজেকে এমনভাবে উপস্থাপন করুন, যাতে মনে হয়, নতুন কিছু শেখার ব্যাপারে আপনি যথেষ্ট আন্তরিক এবং ওই সুনির্দিষ্ট বিষয়ে অভিজ্ঞতার ঘাটতি আপনি দ্রুত পূরণ করে নিতে পারবেন। মনে রাখবেন, অনভিজ্ঞতা আপনার জন্য সুফলও এনে দিতে পারে। দক্ষতা বা অভিজ্ঞতা অর্জনের প্রশিক্ষণ আপনি সব সময়ই নিতে পারবেন, কিন্তু ব্যক্তিত্বের ব্যাপারটা অন্য রকম।

২.চাকরির মাঝখানে বিরতি
এই দুর্বলতা কাটিয়ে ওঠা সত্যিই একটু কঠিন। চাকরি চলে গেলে বা স্বেচ্ছায় কোনো চাকরি ছেড়ে দেওয়ার পর নতুন আরেকটি পদে যোগ দেওয়ার আগ পর্যন্ত সময়টা বিরতি হিসেবে গণ্য হয়। এই সময় স্বেচ্ছাসেবামূলক কোনো কাজ বা প্রশিক্ষণ নেওয়ার কাজে যুক্ত হতে হবে। এতে বিরতির সময়টা আপনার জীবনবৃত্তান্তে (সিভি) ইতিবাচক বা দক্ষতা অর্জনের পর্যায় হিসেবে বিশেষ মূল্যায়ন পাবে। সিভি পড়ে সাধারণত কেউ জিজ্ঞেস করবে না, ওই বিরতির সময় আপনি বেতন পেয়েছেন কি না। কিন্তু নিয়োগদাতা প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলো আপনার এসব কাজে ব্যস্ত থাকার তাৎপর্য হিসেবে আপনাকে ক্যারিয়ার-সচেতন এবং উদ্যমী হিসেবে বিবেচনা করবে।

৩.দ্রুত ও ক্রমাগত চাকরি বদল
একটা চাকরি হঠাৎ করে ছেড়ে দেওয়ার বিষয়টি নিয়োগকারী প্রতিষ্ঠান ও চাকরিপ্রার্থীর কারও পছন্দ নয়। বারবার ও দ্রুত চাকরি পরিবর্তন করার ফলে একজন কর্মীর ভাবমূর্তি ক্ষতিগ্রস্ত হয়। এসব ক্ষেত্রে তিনি প্রতিষ্ঠানের প্রতি যথেষ্ট অঙ্গীকারবদ্ধ নন বলে মনে করা হতে পারে। ক্যারিয়ার গঠন ও দক্ষতা অর্জনের ব্যাপারে শক্তিশালী মনোভাব রাখার পাশাপাশি কাজেও তার প্রমাণ দিতে হবে। চাকরির বাইরে (ফ্রিল্যান্সার হিসেবে) নিজ উদ্যোগে কিছু ইতিবাচক কাজের অভিজ্ঞতা থাকলে সেগুলো সিভিতে গুছিয়ে তুলে ধরুন। এতে আপনি বারবার চাকরি বদল করে থাকলেও ব্যাপারটাকে তুলনামূলক কম নেতিবাচক মনে হবে।

৪.প্রয়োজনীয় দক্ষতার অভাব
আপনি কাঙ্ক্ষিত কোনো প্রতিষ্ঠানে স্বপ্নের চাকরিটা করার সুযোগ পেয়ে যাওয়ার পরও আপনার মনটা যদি খুঁত খুঁত করে এই মনে করে যে আপনি কাজটার জন্য যথেষ্ট যোগ্য নন, তাহলে দুর্ভাবনা ও হীনম্মন্যতা ঝেড়ে ফেলুন। নিজের ঘাটতিগুলো ভিন্ন উপায়ে পুষিয়ে নিতে হবে। অতীতে গঠনমূলক বিভিন্ন কাজের অভিজ্ঞতার আলোকে নিজেকে বিভিন্ন সমস্যা সমাধানের জন্য একজন আদর্শ কর্মী হিসেবে উপস্থাপন করুন। সিভিতেই বর্ণনা করুন, আপনার আগের কাজকর্ম নতুন প্রতিষ্ঠানটির কাঙ্ক্ষিত পদে চাকরির উপযোগী অভিজ্ঞতা হিসেবে কাজে লাগবে।

আপনি কি সৃষ্টিশীল?

পৃথিবীতে দুই ধরনের মানুষ আছে। এক ধরনের মানুষ সারাজীবন একই কাজ করে যায় আর আরেক ধরনের মানুষ আছে যারা এক কাজ বেশি দিন করতে পারে না। সাধারণত সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের ক্ষেত্রে বিভিন্ন কাজে বা নতুন ধরনের কাজে জড়িয়ে পড়ার ঝোঁকটা বেশি দেখা যায়। কিন্তু বেশির ভাগ ক্ষেত্রেই মানুষ তাদের ভুল বুঝে থাকে। শুরুতে সবাই ধরে নেয় তাদের দিয়ে কিছু হবে না, কিন্তু পরে দেখা যায় সাফল্য তাদের পেছনেই ছুটছে। সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের কিছু লক্ষণ আছে, যা তাদের বাকিদের থেকে আলাদা করে। সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষের ১০ লক্ষ্মণ জানিয়েছে ক্যারিয়ার-বিষয়ক ওয়েবসাইট ক্যারিয়ার এডিক্ট ডটকম।

১. একঘেয়েমি

সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষরা সবসময় এই সমস্যায় ভুগে থাকে। প্রথমে সব বিষয়ে তাদের খুব আগ্রহ থাকে। কিছুদিন যাওয়ার পরই তাদের আগ্রহ চলে যায় এবং তারা নতুন ধরনের কাজ খোঁজে থাকে। তাই এক ধরনের কাজ সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের পক্ষে বেশিদিন করা একেবারেই অসম্ভব।

২. স্বপ্ন দেখার ব্যারাম

মানুষ তার স্বপ্নের সমান বড়- এই কথাটি সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের ক্ষেত্রে খাটে। তারা সারাক্ষণ স্বপ্ন দেখতে থাকে। সব স্বপ্ন হয়তো তাদের পূরণ হয় না, কারণ তাদের স্বপ্ন কখনো শেষ হয় না।

৩. শিশুতোষ

সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের মধ্যে শিশুতোষ বিষয়গুলো খুব বেশি দেখা যায়। তারা শিশুদের মতো আচরণ করে। অল্পতেই বিরক্ত হয়, চিৎকার চেচামেচি করে আবার কৌতুক শুনে জোরে হেসে উঠে। আনন্দ-বেদনা-উচ্ছ্বাস সব ক্ষেত্রেই তারা বাড়াবাড়ি করে। আবেগী হওয়ার কারণেই এমনটা করে তারা।

৪. তারা ব্যর্থ হয়, কিন্তু আবার চেষ্টা করে

একটা কথা আছে, ‘যখন আপনি মাটিতে পড়ে যান, তখন আপনি হেরে যান না। কিন্তু যখন আপনি উঠে দাঁড়ানোর চেষ্টা বাদ দিয়ে দেন, তখনই আপনি হেরে যান।’ সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের ক্ষেত্রে এটা বরাবরই ঘটে। তারা হুট করে কোনো কিছুর পেছনে তাদের সব মনোযোগ দিয়ে বসে। দেখা যায় প্রথমে তা সফল হয় না। কিন্তু তারা হাল ছাড়ার পাত্র নয়। ব্যর্থ হলেও তারা বারবার সফল হওয়ার জন্য চেষ্টা করতে থাকে।

৫. হৃদয় দ্বারা চালিত

সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষরা বেশির ভাগ সময়ই তাদের হৃদয় দিয়ে সিদ্ধান্ত নেয়। মাথা দিয়ে তারা কম সময়ই চিন্তাভাবনা করে। সবসময় মনের কথা শুনতেই তারা অভ্যস্ত। মন যা চায়, সেটা নিয়েই মেতে থাকে তারা।

৬. সময়জ্ঞান থাকে না

যখন কোনো কাজে মজা পেয়ে যায় তারা তখন তাদের আর সময়জ্ঞান থাকে না। নাওয়া-খাওয়া সব ভুলে সেই কাজের পেছনেই সারা দিন ব্যয় করে। অনেক সময় ঘুমাতেও ভুলে যায় তারা। আর এই ক্ষ্যাপাটে স্বভাবের কারণেই তারা নতুন কিছু সৃষ্টি করতে পারে।

৭. রাত জেগে কাজ করা

এটা স্বাস্থ্যের জন ভালো না হলেও সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষরা এভাবেই অভ্যস্ত। সবাই যখন ঘুমায় তখন তাদের কাজ শুরু হয় আবার সবাই যখন কাজ করে তখন তারা ঘুমায়।

৮. নিজের কাজ কখনো পছন্দ হয় না

এটাও এক বিড়ম্বনা সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের জন্য। তারা কখনোই নিজের কাজে সন্তুষ্ট হতে পারে না। খুব আগ্রহ নিয়ে একটা কাজ শেষ করার কিছুদিন পরই তাদের মনে হবে, কাজটা কিছুই হয়নি। তখন আবারও নতুন কিছু নিয়ে ব্যস্ত হয়ে পড়ে তারা।

৯. চারপাশে খেয়াল রাখে

মাটির একটা ছোট পিপড়া থেকে আকাশের বিশাল বিমান- কোনো কিছুই সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের দৃষ্টি এড়ায় না। তারা সবকিছু খুব মনোযোগ দিয়ে পর্যবেক্ষণ করে। বিশেষ করে চারপাশের মানুষ এবং প্রকৃতি, কারণ সেখান থেকেই তারা কাজের অনুপ্রেরণা পায়।

১০. চাকরি করতে পছন্দ করে না

সৃষ্টিশীল মানুষদের দ্বারা কখনো দীর্ঘসময় চাকরি করা সম্ভব না। তারা স্বাধীনভাবে কাজ করতে পছন্দ করে এবং সেজন্যই আত্মকর্মসংস্থানের চেষ্টা থাকে তাদের মধ্যে। সুযোগ পেলেই চাকরি ছেড়ে নিজের মতো কাজ করা শুরু করার সাহস তারা রাখে, যদিও অনেক সময় সেজন্য তাদের কষ্ট স্বীকার করতে হয়।

চাকরি পেতে কীভাবে এগিয়ে রাখবেন নিজেকে

নামীদামি প্রতিষ্ঠানে উঁচু পদে চাকরি, আকর্ষণীয় বেতন কে না চায়। সব চাকরিপ্রার্থীর মধ্যেই থাকে এই স্বপ্ন পূরণের আশা। কিন্তু সবার স্বপ্ন তো আর সার্থক হয় না। গতানুগতিক নিয়োগ পদ্ধতিতে এ আকাঙ্ক্ষা পূরণের জন্য চাই উচ্চমানের পড়াশোনা আর দীর্ঘ কর্ম-অভিজ্ঞতা। 

তবে এ ব্যাপারে ভিন্ন কথা বলেছে ক্যারিয়ারবিষয়ক ওয়েবসাইট মনস্টার ডটকম। তাদের মতে, শুধু উচ্চশিক্ষা আর অভিজ্ঞতার মাপকাঠিতেই সব সময় পাবেন না উচ্চপদে চাকরি। পছন্দসই চাকরি পেতে অন্য কিছু পদ্ধতিও অনুসরণ করতে হবে ক্যারিয়ারের শুরু থেকেই, যেগুলো এগিয়ে রাখবে আপনাকে বাকিদের থেকে। তো, চলুন দেখে নেওয়া যাক, কী সেই সফলতার চাবিকাঠিগুলো।

জানুন-শিখুন সবকিছু

জ্ঞানের কোনো শেষ নেই, তাই প্রতিনিয়ত নিজেকে নতুন কিছু জানার কাজে নিয়োজিত রাখতে হবে। কাজ করছেন কোনো ছোট পদে? নিজের কর্মপরিসরের মধ্যে থেকেই নিজেকে মুখোমুখি করুন বিভিন্ন ঝুঁকি আর চ্যালেঞ্জের। এগুলো একজন প্রার্থীকে প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক লক্ষ্য পূরণে সাহায্য তো করবেই, সঙ্গে সঙ্গে আত্মবিশ্বাসীও করে তুলবে। এই প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক সাফল্য আর আত্মবিশ্বাস চাকরিদাতাদের কাছে আপনাকে করে তুলবে অন্যদের থেকে আলাদা।

বাড়িয়ে নিন যোগাযোগ দক্ষতা

নিজ কাজে দক্ষ আপনি। তাহলেই কি পাবেন উচ্চ পদের ভালো চাকরি? অবশ্যই না। কর্মদক্ষতার পাশাপাশি আপনাকে হতে হবে যোগাযোগে দক্ষ। যোগাযোগ ক্ষমতা, যা কর্মীদের সঙ্গে আপনার সম্পর্ক মজবুত করার সঙ্গে সঙ্গে করবে উচ্চপদে চাকরির ক্ষেত্রে আপনাকে একধাপ এগিয়ে দেবে।

কাজ করতে শিখুন দলগতভাবে

উচ্চ পদে কাজ করতে হলে আপনাকে অবশ্যই দক্ষ হতে হবে ব্যবস্থাপনায়। দলগতভাবে কাজ ব্যবস্থাপনায় দক্ষতা বৃদ্ধি করে। তাই প্রথম থেকেই অভ্যাস গড়ে তুলতে হবে দলগত কাজ করার অভ্যাস। দলের পাঁচজনকে নিয়ে কাজ করার অভিজ্ঞতা থেকে আপনি সঞ্চয় করতে পারেন ৫০০ জনের একটি প্রতিষ্ঠান নিয়ন্ত্রণের ক্ষমতা।

ধৈর্যই সাফল্য

উঁচু পদে চাকরির ক্ষেত্রে আপনাকে হতে হবে ধৈর্যশীল। ঘন ঘন চাকরি বদল কিন্তু ধৈর্যশীলতার লক্ষণ নয়। চাকরি বদলের অভ্যাস অনেক সময় চাকরিদাতাদের কাছে একটি অপছন্দের কারণ হয়ে দাঁড়ায়। পছন্দসই কোনো প্রতিষ্ঠানে চাকরি পেলে সেখানেই এগিয়ে নিয়ে যেতে হবে নিজের ক্যারিয়ার। কোনো একটি প্রতিষ্ঠানে দীর্ঘ সময়ের সাফল্যের অভিজ্ঞতা অবশ্যই একজনকে এগিয়ে রাখবে।


নেটওয়ার্কিংয়ের মাধ্যমে একজন প্রার্থী এগিয়ে থাকতে পারেন অনেকটাই। বর্তমানে নিয়োগের ক্ষেত্রে ব্যক্তিগত বা পেশাগতভাবে চেনাজানাদের অনেকটাই অগ্রাধিকার দেওয়া হয়। তাই নিজ চেষ্টায় এই চেনা-পরিচিতদের তালিকাটা একটু বাড়িয়ে নিতে হবে। এ ছাড়া বিভিন্ন প্রতিষ্ঠানে স্বেচ্ছাসেবকের কাজ, কনফারেন্সে অংশগ্রহণ এবং লেখালিখির মাধ্যমেও বাড়িয়ে নেওয়া যেতে পারে পরিচিতির পরিসর।

আগে জানুন চাকরিদাতার আদ্যোপান্ত

সাক্ষাৎকার দেওয়ার আগে বাসায় বসে কিছুটা হোমওয়ার্ক করে নিন। যে প্রতিষ্ঠানে চাকরি করতে চাইছেন, জেনে নিন প্রতিষ্ঠানটি সম্পর্কে বিস্তারিত তথ্য। প্রতিষ্ঠানটি কেমন, তাদের রীতিনীতি, বিভিন্ন প্রথা, আদর্শ সম্পর্কে ভালো ধারণা নিয়েই যেতে হবে ইন্টারভিউ বোর্ডে। সাধারণত আজকাল এসব তথ্য ইন্টারনেটেই পাওয়া যায়। না পাওয়া গেলে এ ব্যাপারে সাহায্য করতে পারে প্রতিষ্ঠানের কর্মরত কর্তাব্যক্তিরা।

সিভি তৈরির সময় যেসব সতর্কতা জরুরি

পেশাগত জীবনে সিভি আয়না হিসেবে কাজ করে। একটি ভালো পরিমার্জিত সিভি একজন চাকরিপ্রার্থীকে চাকরি পাওয়ার ক্ষেত্রে অনেকটা এগিয়ে দেয়। যেকোনো চাকরির ক্ষেত্রে সিভির গুরুত্ব যে আসলে কত, তা বলা বাহুল্য। সিভির মাধ্যমে ব্যক্তির শিক্ষাগত যোগ্যতা থেকে আরম্ভ করে অভিজ্ঞতা সম্পর্কে জানা যায়। সিভিতে যদি সবকিছু ঠিকভাবে না উল্লেখ করা হয়, তাহলে চাকরি না হওয়ার আশঙ্কাই বেশি! অনেকে আছেন যোগ্যতা থাকার পরও ভালো সিভি করতে না পারার কারণে সুযোগ পান না কাঙ্ক্ষিত পেশায়। একটি সুন্দর গ্রহণযোগ্য সিভি লেখার জন্য কিছু কৌশল অবলম্বন করা উচিত। টাইমস অব ইন্ডিয়া অবলম্বনে কৌশল সম্পর্কে আলোচনা করা হলো।

বিভ্রান্তিকর উদ্দেশ্যগুলো এবং সাধারণ বাক্যাংশগুলো এড়িয়ে চলুন
অবশ্যই সিভিতে এমন কিছু উল্লেখ করা যাবে না, যা বিভ্রান্তিকর। খুব সাধারণ তথ্যগুলো এড়িয়ে চলুন। সিভিতে আপনাকে বোঝাতে হবে, আপনি একটি চ্যালেঞ্জিং চাকরি খুঁজছেন এবং অনেক উন্নতি করতে চান। এ ছাড়া আরো কিছু বিষয়, যেমন—চমৎকার কাজের দক্ষতা, চাপের মধ্যে ভালো কাজ করা; এসব লেখা এড়িয়ে চলতে হবে।

অতিরিক্ত কিছু উল্লেখ করা থেকে বিরত থাকুন
সিভিতে মিথ্যা এবং অতিরঞ্জিত কিছু উল্লেখ করা থেকে বিরত থাকুন। কখনো কখনো এগুলো চাকরি পাওয়ার ক্ষেত্রে হিতে বিপরীত হতে পারে। চাকরিদাতা আপনার এসব তথ্য যাচাই করতে চাইতে পারে। এসব বিষয়ে সচেতন হতে হবে।

সর্বনিম্ন সংখ্যক পৃষ্ঠায় আপনার সিভিকে সীমাবদ্ধ করুন
এ কথা সত্য, সিভির কোনো নির্দিষ্ট দৈর্ঘ্য নেই। আপনার শিক্ষাগত যোগ্যতা এবং অভিজ্ঞতার তথ্য বেশি হলে সিভি বড় হতে পারে। তবে সব সময় সিভি দুই পৃষ্ঠার ভেতর সীমাবদ্ধ রাখা উচিত। এতে করে সিভি দেখে আপনাকে মূল্যায়ন করতে সহজ হবে। বড় সিভি অনেক ক্ষেত্রে বিরক্তিকর মনে হতে পারে।

সিভির বিন্যাস সাধারণ রাখুন
অভিনব রঙিন এবং একাধিক ফন্ট ব্যবহার করা থেকে বিরত থাকুন। সাধারণভাবে সিভি আকর্ষণীয় করার চেষ্টা করুন।

অন্যের সিভি নকল করা থেকে বিরত থাকুন
আমাদের মধ্যে অনেকে আছেন, যাঁরা সিভি তৈরির জন্য খুব একটা কষ্ট করতে চান না। অন্যের সিভির তথ্য এদিক-সেদিক করে নিজের জন্য করেন। এটি একদম করা যাবে না। একটি সিভি সব সময়ের জন্য ব্যক্তিগত। অন্যের সিভি থেকে নকল করার কোনো যৌক্তিকতা নেই। একটু সময় নিয়ে নিজের মতো করে সুন্দর একটি সিভি তৈরি করুন। দেখবেন, সামান্য একটু কষ্ট হলেও আপনি বড় কিছু অর্জন করতে পারবেন।
