How To Handle The Woes Of Procrastination?

For a long time in my life, I have been guilty of procrastination. Such had been the extent that my personal life too was in shambles. I kept making plans after plans and yet delayed them simply because I didn’t have it in me to do what I proposed. It took me some time to realize that that it had become a dangerous and a terrible pattern and finally when enough was enough, I knew I had to do something or else my career was definitely gone for a toss. So I know what exactly you may be going through and having walked in your shoes, I can help you perhaps in a much better way.

So let us get started and see the best way to beat procrastination.

Mind games

You have to train your mind and there is no if and buts about it. When your mind is sharp enough to know that you have no alternative other than completing the task at hand, you will automatically give in your best and slowly but surely you will begin to notice the change. Training your mind is often the first step when it comes to dealing with procrastination. A lot of people lose in this process simply because they are unable to control their mind.


You absolutely must devote an hour in the morning to meditation. Doing this has far-reaching positive benefits which you can feel, not just in your professional life, but otherwise as well. Meditation is known to bring a calming effect on your body and you will be able to enjoy a larger attention span, have a levelheaded mind and therefore you will be able to take better decisions as well. This is why it is important to spend an hour meditating. When your mind and body are aligned together, the kind of effort which you can put in multiplies drastically.

Along with this, I also recommend taking a look at this video which throws light on the right kind of procrastination help which perhaps will trigger the change you are seeking. Do not let this habit get so deeply ingrained in your behavior that you end up losing a lot in life. It is not just your career which it can damage but coming from personal experience, I can guarantee that even your family life will start to take a toll. So start the journey today and get rid of procrastination at the earliest.

Tell Me About Yourself? What Not to Do

When answering the interview query “tell me about yourself?”, There are some essential pointers on what to keep away. If you aren’t equipped, there’s a hazard that your reaction will become inconsistent. This may harm your opportunity on this job. Right here are a few matters to maintain in mind while starting to create a script for your answer:

Do not summaries your CV phrase. As an alternative, discuss essential factors associated with the scenario.

Avoid citing non-public records which include social reputation, political or non-secular affiliations, and many others. These very delicate problems can work against you as a candidate, not to say that such details are not an element for the company to determine your capability to get the work done.

I suggested to watch this YouTube video about best way to answer tell me about yourself interview question for your reference.

Do not rush to speak about what you are looking for inside the role or how the company can benefit you: maintain those topics within the final tiers of the interview process while you “promote” them as applicants and have a more significant effect.

Do not list diverse strengths and ambiguities without helping examples. Instead, you may need to choose or three qualities for yourself. Helping each of them with short and polished stories can be backed up to your commercial enterprise revel in.

How To Respond To A Question You Don’t Know

I’m sure you’ve been in a situation like this.

So, at a meeting or maybe in an interview, somebody asks you a question.

And then you realize that you don’t know how to answer it.

Not because you’re dumb, but because it’s very unexpected.

Now, this happens to everyone. Doesn’t matter if you’re an intern or a manager.

We just can’t avoid these unexpected questions.

Okay, now, when you don’t know an answer to a question, it’s ok to say you don’t know. You see, there’s nothing wrong with admitting that.

I mean, it’s even better to say you don’t know than try to say something clever, which usually makes you look bad.

But you see, being too dependent on answers like “I don’t know” or “Let me figure that out first,” it can put you in a bad position.

Before we go on let me introduce to you this LIG review, an article on how he handle the situation of failure and rose again.

So today, I’m gonna talk about how you can do in these situations.

I’m gonna share with you other ways handle questions you don’t know the answer to.

Of course, without sounding incompetent.

Okay, so here’s an example.

Let’s say you were asked, what’s the best way to improve the team’s productivity.

But you haven’t really thought about it. So it stumps you.

Alright, here’s what you can do,

Instead trying to remember past experiences to help you answer,

You could try looking forward. Try to visualize and think in present.

So, you’ll come up with a more relevant, more authentic answer.

Alright, so here’s another example,

Let’s say you were asked to explain something outside your role.

For example, you’re in product development, but then a client asks you a sales question.

Well, instead of saying it’s not your job or changing the topic, you can still offer your insight.

You can say that you don’t work in sales, but from what you know in your role, you can share which developments made an impact to your company’s sales.

You see, it might not be the answer they’re looking for, and that’s ok. You can use this as an opportunity to first, offer value, and second, to show your expertise.

Alright, so, what if you really have no idea how to answer the question?

For example, you work in marketing, and your supervisor asks why the campaigns aren’t performing well.

And you really just haven’t figured it out.

Here’s what you can do.

You can be honest. Say you don’t know the reason yet.

But at the same time, you can also show that you’re committed to it.

You can say, “I know this is gonna help us a lot, so I’m gonna come up with a plan to figure out the real cause.”

And then actually do it. You can follow up with your supervisor. And then, when you’re ready with your answer, you can finally present it.

You see, showing this kind of commitment, it’s gonna show that their question matters to you.

Now, remember, it’s not usually about giving the right or wrong answer.

Bullies In The Workplace

In today’s article, we will talk about workplace bullies. You probably thought that bullies only exist in school. After all, employees must be mature enough not to be a bully, right? Unfortunately, it’s not always true. Employees are expected to act professionally in the workplace, but there are still some employees who show unprofessional and immature behavior.

Why do grown adults turn into workplace bullies? One possible reason could be because of their insecurities. They don’t know how to deal with their insecurities, so they try to cope by showing aggressive behavior towards the people they work with. They think that they become powerful and more superior by doing this. Another reason could be because they were once bullied as a child. They feel like they are getting some sort of revenge by bullying their coworkers. A lot of workplace bullies cannot be easily changed. Their character is just like that. They are blind to their own shortcomings so they are not willing to change themselves for the better.

There are many different types of bullies in the workplace. There are the passive-aggressive bullies who talk behind your back. There are loud bullies who always say something offensive. There are stealthy bullies who try to appear nice but work against you secretly. These negative behaviors can be seen in many different ways. Sometimes, it could be as simple as being treated differently or being excluded from social gatherings. But they all have similar effects. In the long run, they ruin your confidence. They ruin the trust you have in your coworkers. Workplace bullying tactics impacts your performance negatively. This is a legitimate problem in the workplace.

Sometimes, it’s not enough to talk to the bully or consult your manager. These methods do not always work. This is because very few companies actually have policies that can safeguard an employee from abusive workplace behavior. A lot of offices just choose to sweep this issue under a rug and act like it’s not a pressing issue. This is true especially when the bully involved is a manager or a supervisor. There are times when companies just choose to ignore or terminate the employee just to appease the bully who has a high position. This is another reason why bringing up the issue to the management does not always produce favorable results.

It always helps to maintain a good level of composure in the face of bullying. Try to be as professional as you realistically can. Become so valuable that the bully can do nothing to bring you down. You’re your contributions known to the workplace, especially to the key decision makers. It will also help to have a strong network in the office that will support you. However, you know that you have a limit. If your situation continues to get worse, then start finding a new job. You deserve a better company and a better manager who will treat you fairly.

“so here i sit. a sum of the parts. about a third way down this wonderful path, so to speak. and i’ve been thinking lately about a friendship that fell apart with time, with distance, and with the misunderstanding of youth. i’m trying not to confuse sadness with regret. not the easiest thing at times. i dont regret that certain things happened. i understand that perhaps i had a choice in the matter, or perhaps i believe in fate. probably not, but so far actions as small as the quickest glance to events as monumental as death have pushed me slowly along to right here, right now. there was no other way to get here. the meandering and erratic path was actually the straightest of lines. take away a handful of angry words, things once thought of as mistakes or regrets, and i’m suddenly a different person with a different history, a different future. that, i would regret. so here i sit. thinking about a person i once called my best friends. a man who might be full of sadness and regret, who might not give a damn, or who might, just might, remember the future and realize that’s where its at.”

Before you were born,
And were still too tiny for
The human eye to see,
You won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
And yet,
How fast you have forgotten
Your strength,
When your very existence
Is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
A warrior,
One who defied the odds
By surviving the most gruesome
Battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,
Why do you even doubt victory
Against smaller numbers,
And wider margins?
The only walls that exist,
Are those you have placed in your mind.
And whatever obstacles you conceive,
Exist only because you have forgotten
What you have already

“The problem for a lot of people is that they don’t really know what they want. They have vague desire: to ‘do something creative’ or to earn more money or ‘to be free’, but they can’t really pin down what it is precisely that they want.
