Getting one thing done can be a task with so many distractions and life challenges. People often ask, “Where is the time to even improve myself?”
Many spend all their free time checking social networks. Please note that the internet is a great tool for learning. There are a thousand online courses. There are many learning resources. So many skills can be learnt by just sitting by your phone. Replace the texting, subbing, liking and commenting time with a few minutes of learning vocabularies, making a new dish, learning a new language, skill, etc.
Make a To-Do List
Research says many people scarcely follow their todo list. However, it is a good guide if you are committed to completing the tasks. Write down, make it plain, and be committed to finish it.
Write What You Learn.
Take a few minutes to reflect on each day. Write down what you learnt. This helps you to focus on areas to get better.
It doesn’t have to be long. Just enough to make you remember what new miles you have conquered. It helps for retention.
Make a What I achieved List
While a To-do list is good, an achievement list is better. This boost your moral and helps you to move to the next level. Asides confidence, this shoots up your happiness level. So leverage on boost by pausing to list not only the things you are yet to do, but rather all the things you’ve already accomplished.
Weed Your Friends List
Not that kind of weed… But everyone knows the kind of friends you have will greatly affect your life. To change your life, you must change your reality and that involves people too.
Surround yourself with likeminded people who aspire to do better. You also need people beyond your level who can challenge you and advise you where need be.
Pursue Your Dreams
You have got only this life to live. Create impact. Always remember that you are the only one that is responsible for what you can and cannot do. Prove to yourself every day you are not a waste of space.
[6:53 AM, 9/7/2018] Godfred: How to Dress Great On Fridays
High Fashion | Aug. 30, 2018
The way we dress to work nowadays have changed incredibly in the last decade. Even in very corporate and conventional business places, the rules have relaxed. Many industries encourage staff to dress casually. Especially Fridays, many professionals dress down.
However, it is important to remember that it is still WORK and appearance matter a lot.
Just because you’re dressing casually doesn’t mean you should ignore what your clothes say about you and your work. Never wear sweatshirts if they make you look like you slept in the office. Jeans are great but be careful that the slashes or rips don’t resemble a thug. Distressed jeans, jeans with holes in them or those covered in paint splatter are generally unacceptable as they look messy. Fit is important too. Very baggy or skinny jeans are not going to cut it; boot cut or straight-legged jeans are going to be the most professional option.
Take Care to Look Organized
Always be sure to look your best. Casual Friday isn’t the same thing as Saturday. Put in effort. This is crucial especially when you are in a casual attire since the details are even more important and visible. Make sure that you look great and presentable.
Choose Your Shoes Appropriately.
Never wear Flip flops. Nobody is interested in seeing your feet but shoes and sandals protect your feet better. Ballet flats and certain kinds of sandals are excellent option for women, blending both style and comfort. Men should consider loafers as a casual alternative to more restrictive business shoes. Sneakers can be tricky, use colours that are not too provocative
