Typical of a session of economic hardship and social discomfort brought about by the need to change or grow will be many affected people exhibiting their various grievances, discomfort and frustration in many and varying ways.

I was at an event recently and within the hall, from a short distance from where I sat, I observed a group of gentlemen discuss the prevailing economic situation and how difficult things have suddenly become.

They kept highlighting the problems and implications, the perceived errors and inefficiencies and the impact of the change drive and agenda on organisations and individuals. One of them suddenly said something about opportunities. He said to the rest, despite all the seeming gloom and downturn, there are still opportunities everywhere for people to progress, accomplish goals and make money.

The rest of the guys looked at him funny as though he was talking nonsense. What opportunities are you talking about one of them growled at him? Where are the opportunities? He repeated. I beg, I beg get real, all this by faith, by faith things don't work for me. As far as I'm concerned, there are no opportunities anywhere now. That's why we need this government to create the opportunities so that we can take advantage of the opportunities created and make money, he submitted a bit irritated.

One of the biggest challenges is just maintaining motivation to continue  especially when you're dealing with rejection and silence.
Climb out of your motivational slump with these five tips.

 Get Specific with Your To-Do List
When your motivation is low, general job-searching tasks like "network" and "redo resume" can be overwhelming. A great way to instantly make your search seem more manageable? Rework your to-do list to include smaller, more specific tasks.
For example, when I was job searching, I made it a goal to reach out to two direct contacts one day and two referrals the next for informational interviews. Both were easy to-dos that, over time, helped me reach my broader goal of expanding my network (and, as a bonus, do so without feeling like I was “networking).

HOW TO BALANCE WORK AND FAMILY

To balance work and family means to give yourself equally to both areas of your life and not neglect one over the other.

Establish your priorities. Even if you feel that both your work and family are important, you have to decide what takes precedence when both areas of your life need nurturing at one time, thus creating a conflict.

Create a list of family goals and establish a deadline. This parallels your efforts at work to prioritize your objectives. You have to fulfil your responsibilities at work, but you may not always do the same at home. Families grow so fast that oftentimes we make plans to do things with and for the family, but they never come into fruition.

When it comes to money, everybody has a weakness, whether it’s overspending, impulsivity or constant worrying. Identifying what these problems are is important—but so is taking advantage of the strengths that accompany these character traits.

To help people hone their individual financial skills, here out the key characteristics of five money personalities. Where do you fall?

1. The Worrier

Although this individual may excel at problem solving and rarely makes financial mistakes, worrying can have negative health effects. If you fret about money daily, turn financial problems into catastrophes, and actively seek out a new money issue immediately after solving the one at hand, you may fit this type. Instead of getting overwhelmed, take measurable steps, like gradually paying down debt.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle at the workplace represents one of the biggest dilemmas that working professionals are faced with around the globe today. Clinging to a computer screen 8 to 10 hours a day, 5 to 6 days a week naturally drains one’s energy levels and affects one’s health over time.

 

  1. Do not miss breakfast: Make time for breakfast every morning before or after coming into the office. A hearty breakfast is key to maintaining your food balance throughout the day.
  2. Clockwork: Reduce decision fatigue. Reserve your energy for big challenges by taking fewer decisions. The easiest way is to follow a routine to free up your mind and give you control over your time. Follow the routine for 30 days to make it a habit.

Here are the keys to successful job interviewing. Job-seekers who follow these simple rules and guidelines should achieve success in this important phase of job-hunting.

 DOs

  1. Sit up straight, and lean slightly forward in your chair. In addition to projecting interest and engagement in the interaction, aligning your body position to that of the interviewer's shows admiration and agreement.
  2. Show your enthusiasm by keeping an interested expression. Nod and make positive gestures in moderation to avoid looking like a bobble head.
  3. Establish a comfortable amount of personal space between you and the interviewer. Invading personal space (anything more than 20 inches) could make the interviewer feel uncomfortable and take the focus away from your conversation.
  4. Limit your application of colognes and perfumes. Invading aromas can arouse allergies. Being the candidate that gave the interviewer a headache isn't going to do anything in your favor.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR TIME!

  1. Make a list: The thing about making lists is that; you actually have to use them. You may want to set reminders on your phone and computer. Lists really do work if you use them. The most important things is to make sure your list feels attainable.
  2. Set deadlines: Set a deadline and try your best to stick to it. Set your deadline a few days before the task absolutely has to be done.
  3. Stop multi-tasking. People that multi task often seem to think they get more accomplished, but it’s not always the most productive or efficient route. Let’s face it, our minds work better when we are truly able to focus and concentrate on one thing.
