Your Health and Success

Today I learned that your health and lifestyle have a big impact on your success. In order to do well in life, you first have to manage your life. Taking better care of your health can increase productivity and motivation. By eating healthy and exercising, we are taking care of our well-being. In order to be successful, we also have to manage our time properly. It's important to not get caught up with useless, time-consuming activities, such as playing video games. Sure, it's nice to take breaks and enjoy yourselves, but in the long run, it's not gonna do you much good. Instead, you'll be wishing you could take back the hours you spend playing video games. Time-consuming, useless activities not only take up our time, but they also take our money, so it is important to avoid them.

Save Your Money!

Today, I learned how you can save and invest your money. It can be very tempting to treat yourself and buy whatever your heart desires after getting your paycheck, however, in the long run, this is not a good idea. One way we can cut down spending is by making a list every month that includes all your spending. By doing this, it will be easier to identify the areas in which you spent too much money. You can put spending limits to prevent yourself from going overboard.

Don't Get Scammed

Today I learned about how not to get scammed. People get scammed for their money or personal information. It's really easy to be fooled, however, there are ways you can identify whether or not you are being scammed. For example, you can avoid being scammed by doing a little research. Just a simple google search will help you know if the source is reliable. I also learned how to not be taken advantage of. Most people, including myself, often find it hard to say no. This can lead us to be taken advantage of. It's ok to say no when you don't know how to do something or if you can do something, but you just don't have the time, then you can turn the situation to benefit you. For example, you can charge for your work in order to make the situation worth your time.

Interview; What You Should Do

Today I learned the important skills needed to do well during an interview. A strong resume and interview skills are very important when applying to jobs. An interview is almost like a first impression. It helps the employer get an idea of who you are as an employee and whether or not you qualify for the job. In an interview, it is important to showcase yourself as a passionate and skilled employee. I learned that it is important to listen attentively during an interview. By nodding your head and maintaining eye contact, as well as staying focused, you are showing the employer that you are actively listening. It is also important to ask questions during the interview. Not only does it show that you are actively listening, but it also shows that you are passionate about the job.

Remote Working and Getting Employed

Today, I learned about how people can work online. All they need is a computer and a good WiFi connection. Remote working isn't what everyone thinks it is. It's not always about working on a nice sunny beach. You need to be in a productive environment where you don't get distracted easily and have access to your most important tools; a computer and a good WiFi connection. There are lots of benefits to working online, but the most important for me is that you save time from traveling back and from work. Transportation can take up serval hours in a week, hours that you could use to be more productive or get in a few more extra hours of sleep. I also learned how you can get employed. When you are seeking jobs, resources such as LinkedIn can help you connect to multiple workforces. It's also very important to create a strong and stable resume. Resumes show why you should be qualified for a job. They help the hirer get an idea of whether or not you would qualify for the job.
