Get ready for your next challenges!

We know, for a fact, that more and more people will have to look for a job since most of the jobs that exist today will disappear faster than we can imagine. If you are looking for a job, you should look at the way people live around you and imagine how life will be in the future. How do you want to have an impact? What will make you happy?

While looking for a job or a new project, 

you should look for what really interests you first.

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED!

1. KEEP A DIARY
 

In a notebook or on Evernote or any apps or in a simple Google Doc, take notes every day in it... Surprising answers will come to you if you ask the right questions.

2. WRITE DOWN YOUR WORST FEARS
 

Color it dark — knowing what you fear is a way to overcome it. Always try to be honest with yourself.

3. WRITE YOUR DREAMS

Make it bright and sunny, add photos to represent them. It will be your board to keep track of your future.

4. DEFINE WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE

  • Research (what is missing: knowledge, expertise — look for examples, be curious).

  • Learn (what you need to know, which competencies to develop, find courses and coaches).

  • Network (who do you need to know), be active on relevant social networks for you. Take the time to choose which ones may help you to meet your goal.: LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook... and, most importantly, go out and meet people.)

  • Bring your thoughts to life. Translate your ideas into actions. Don't wait.

5. ACTION PLAN IN THREE COLUMNS. UPDATE IT EVERY WEEK.

  • Your critical tasks (to do actions for this week).

  • Your actions (for the month).

  • Your objectives for the year.

  • Your long-term goal.

6. KEEP A DREAM NOTEBOOK CLOSE TO YOUR BED

  • Every night before going to sleep, write a problem that you would like solved. 

  • Every morning write down your dreams as soon as you wake up. Don't worry if there no link to the questions you want answered. Over time., the process will become very efficient and you will make better decisions.
