Tag: be ready

Thursday Flash (4)

Happy Thursday. I am getting busier, but feedback and statistics on the side shows that you like my bulletin. Enjoy this week’s edition:

Willing to do whatever it takes? Are you ready? If you want the ultimate success and you want to be on top of the world, retire on that beach, you must be ready to do whatever it takes. I enjoyed reading this article, a bit motivational and makes you think, how much you want to sacrifice in order to push things forward.

Simon Sinek suggests some questions to ask when starting a new (junior) job. Whilst I think it is more relevant for junior jobs, there are some takers for senior interviews too. Asking the right questions is key when applying and interviewing. One should not forget, ‘inter view’ means ‘between views’ means it is a two (or more) way process. I remember hiring someone once because he clearly impressed me with the questions he asked, how he asked me and his thinking behind those questions. So remember, it is not a one way street and come prepared to ask the right questions.

I put this in my Sunday Column as well, but this video is just a must watch in my opinion: The man with no limbs who never gives up and is a very happy person. It goes in line with the first link, are you ready to do whatever it takes to succeed. And if not, why not? Maybe you are happy with your current state and don’t want to develop, which is fair enough. But if you do, watch this man. No more excuses. For anything!

Inspirational Thought: Do what you can

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. ~ Teddy Roosevelt

Yes, some motivation for this week. You only got what you have – use it.

Maybe you are out of your comfort zone, maybe missing a few tools from your tool box, but boy can you hit the nail on its head. It is what you make of it.

On some days you feel down, caught off guard, tired, ill or whatever. But you will have all the strength needed when it comes to it. Be there in the moment and make the most of it!

Go – Go – Go

career coaching….continued

Hello,

This last week was quite busy so I thought I pick up the topic of career coaching again. Found this interesting blog, Grow Rich Me?! It’s all about following your dreams and making the most of your life. Which in all fairness is good.

But, looking at coaching, you structure your dreams. You need to really. If you search for Career Coaching you find all sorts of sites. But what would it mean for me or cb consulting?

I have written a lot about coaching in this blog and for me it means to really give yourself some focus.

Starting with a good hour of sitting down and writing up what you want to do? What you like to do? What are you good in? What are you not good in? That gives you a good basis for defining your goals.

Goals: where do you want to be? What drives you? What gets you up in the morning? Where do you see yourself in 3, 5, 10 years time – or 20 even?

From there we work backwards. NLP does that quite often. Imagine you were already in a situation you want to be in, how did you get there?

And work it out. Step by step. Baby-steps. And, we will help you planning steps out. Where to look for a new job, how to tune your CV and cover letter, how to prepare for the interview.

That is what we do. And, in a recession that becomes more and more important.

stepping-stones

On the one hand you want to stay put and do not move, on the other hand you want to see where is the recession going. Be ready when you get made redundant or if you think your company is going down. Be the first to hit the road running. Maybe just to be prepared to do nothing as you might have more influence once you get out of the recession with your current job.
