Travesty Of Reality Of Social Media – Part 02

about-us-3

 

As promised, these are my thoughts about social networking as a whole. As I have mentioned previously, social networking has become unavoidable to everyone in today’s world. For those who use them effectively gain so much into their lives, and with that they have elevated their standards of living in a pace that wouldn’t have come through, had such platforms weren’t available.

But, there are some concerns regarding them. Think about the people who feed contents to such channels and pages. My target is not the large scale, business related media. Think about the other small and medium size businesses and even the individuals who publish contents. Clearly they want many followers and subscribers as possible, as that is one way of attracting new customers to their businesses, or even generating a passive income source.

Anyway, carefully watch what sort of information they publish in them. I come across so many such materials as I’m passionate about trading, and since there are no proper mentors in hand, I need to do constant internet search to read articles regrading them.

Almost all of them publish the life they have succeeded and how they enjoy the results they have taken after so many hard work. It’s not the hard working part you can find in them, but the life after that. Remember, that is crucial to boost your motivation. But remember that’s not enough to get there, too. How much you read and watch such material, you won’t be able to get there unless you start working today. That’s what you need to figure out by yourself. They won’t teach exactly what you need to do to get where they are right now, and it’s nearly impossible to do so as well. So, it’s important not to waste time following similar materials over and over again, and spend time by watching and reading them only.

Plan your life as early as possible, and use the social media to help remind your goals over and over again. Stop wasting time by just enjoying what you see on them. I know, they are highly addictive, and who doesn’t love to watch and read the success stories or some luxurious lives lived by others? Keep asking the question whenever you enjoy them, “How have they done it? What should I do to get there?”

Also remember, people won’t usually publish their difficult times, heart broken moments, how they screw up daily basis while they are trying to achieve their targets. Mostly, those lessons are invisible to the outside world. It’s an individual’s job to find them out, by themselves.

Keep in mind, if you are comfortable and utterly happy about your life, and haven’t got your heart broken, or screwing up your emotions, and even money; you might not have tried to do anything new!

Keep pushing forward, while keeping the stories about soaring by others only to make you focus on your goals and to motivate yourselves. Try to take calculated risks in life. The more you get matured, the more you will regret not doing so in the past!

Secondary Plans

If someone asked why we work, there would be whole lot of different answers coming from people. Apparently that’s where we are all heading to, right after finishing the education in schools and colleges. At that time, we all wanted to enter the professionals’ clubs, and to feel the next level of class in the society. Dreams were there like imagining how we would look like driving our dream car, giving away the nicely designed visiting cards to strangers and even travelling to exotic locations all around the world. That’s pretty much the way how we used to plan our future, may be in next five or ten years.

How many of you had dreams like that? And, how many of you have actually ticked off the checklists you used to scribble back then? After eight years of working in four companies, those are the sort of questions I ask myself now, usually before going to bed. Yes, I have done something for my life for sure, but those things were not the ones I usually planned when I was in the university. How did it happen? And why the priority list keep changing?

As we have learned through various subjects, everything seems to be relative. Now that I look back at the times I studied, the things have changed quite a lot around us, both in terms of personal and social life. Change is universal. Everything and everyone around us keep changing, day after day. How can we have steady and fixed goals in such an environment? I believe that’s why we have little slippages in planning our future.

Money. The cause for all problems. The thing we need to accomplish most of the dreams we had. There is a controversy of defining happiness with money. I usually don’t like to answer that question as I realize money plays an important role in everything we do. That’s quite obviously the same reason for entering the professionals’ club, having dreams of earning heaps of money and use them to travel world etc.

Anyway, sooner or later, we all come to a stage in order to judge ourselves about past decisions we have made. Some might be delighted with them, while some will regret. There are ups and downs in life whether you like it or not. But, the most importantly, you need to take charge of your life, whenever you feel like you need a boost to reach what you have already planned to do, before you become physically challenged to do so.

Those were the same reasons why I continuously tried at least two different things in a year to start another income source. If you could dream of your future back then, why we stop trying to make them happen now? I remember I have attempted ten times in the last eight years to form a new business, but I failed. But I didn’t want to stop as something keep nagging me that I’m not quite done yet, and there are other possibilities to choose from. That made me to step out of the comfort zones and start discovering other markets which I didn’t have any kind of knowledge and experience. Everything started from scratch and I invested time to learn most of the things, mostly by myself.

Hustle. Hustle and hustle until you find the right path. That doesn’t mean you have to be careless. Every month and year brings you enough experience to deal with new challenges in life, and it’s up to you to identify what taught you the most valuable lesson. As I am quite confident of the thing I’d be doing in the year starting from now, I’ll post that particular story in future posts. (And, I believe that’s not quite that far …)

Employees Can Make Projects Succeed Or Fail

Collaborate

The most important aspect of a project is the human resource, for sure. But even though almost every manager knows about that fact, why would they have a fear about driving the team for a successful project completion?

It can be due to various reasons. May be due to lack of time spent on the initiation phase, or may be due to the inability to schedule the project properly, the list goes on …

It’s also impossible to expect everything to be on the perfect side. The world is never a perfect place, and especially in a project there are a lot of things could go wrong. But there got to be a way managers should be able to identify those risks upfront and prepare for them beforehand. Knowing that the team members are the ones who is going to drive the project forward, a lot of pit holes could be avoided by focusing on them while assigning tasks.

Every manager faces that problem. When assigning tasks to individuals, there is a mutual understanding between the assigner and the assignee. They know the fact that just letting them know their work for a period of time would not solve the problems at all. Some may argue that proper monitoring after the assignments would deliver promised results. But, I see some drawbacks in that method as well.

Assuming the team consists of members with proper knowledge and experience to do the job, the life of a manager can be alleviated a little bit. But selecting the right individuals for particular tasks is the next major problem.

How many of them spend enough time to do that? I’ve seen many organizations refer the resumes or professional profiles before assigning tasks. Earlier experience would definitely give them the chance to assign similar tasks for some. But would that only be enough? Listening to the team member about the tasks he or she is going to have will give an even better perspective for managers. It’s acceptable that it wouldn’t be practical if the organization or the group is larger. But having a fair amount of understanding about the skills and most importantly passions of employees would make a positive impact to the project.

Why do we have to align our passion and work?

That’s what we like to see and feel at the end of the day, isn’t it? We need to have a feeling that we have contributed our maximum toward the project and we should be able to inspire ourselves as well. To do that, we got to align our passion with what we are assigned to do.

Managers need to go a bit far in identifying individuals when assigning tasks for them. Maintaining a healthy communication among team members would definitely help them to achieve it. That will also reduce the pressure of the team and by doing that they can be more open to talk about the project related matters. At the end, it’s all about getting to the other side of the line. As it’s a team effort, everyone in the team should feel their importance to the ultimate result.

Finally, getting to know the people in the team is the most important task for the manager. The fate of the project can be decided by just that, and it can be either a success or a failure.

Stay Motivated

successful-business-woman

I thought of writing about something different from what I have been writing before. But it’s directly related to writing as well.

Motivation is something everyone is aware of, and it’s a popular topic when it comes to speaking about positive-thinking and self-building. Let’s see some benefits of giving it a priority in your life and how that affects one’s writing career. Mind you that it’s not only about writing, and you can apply to anything else as well.

Now that everyone advises you to get yourself motivated, how many of them really tells you the method for it? Well, it’s easy to give advises, but they have to be practical and should make sense in the first place.

Here are some things you can do to get yourself motivated for writing. (At least that’s what I do, and it’s really working … )

Read

Anything. Anytime. Anywhere. – Yes, I believe that’s the starting point for writing. If you can’t entertain yourself by reading, you can’t expect the others to enjoy reading what you write. First, fall in love with reading. Believe it or not, with the invent of technology and other electronic media, a lot of people opt to watch and listen than reading. And don’t consider that as a negative thing. Just keep on reading and make it a habit, so it will provide you the necessary environment to start writing.

Watch

Well, I just mentioned about it as a negative thing, right? Yes, but that’s only if you don’t use it effectively. One of the best things you can do to motivate yourself is to watch documentaries of successful people. There are shorter clips available in youtube now, and subscribe to several channels where you find decent information.

Interact with people

Whatever you write, they are going to get related to people at the end. So, just be with them first and listen to what they like to read, and their opinions about some facts. Accept the fact that many of them have a different definition on something than you. And analyze what they see as well. When you write, mention those points, too, and that’ll start a discussion where you can get more readers for your writing.

Treat yourself

Life is a battle and you need to hustle everyday toward your goal. Your heart and brain work continuously to give you what you want. So, isn’t it a bad idea to treat for their effort as well? Choose many methods of treating and change it time to time. Have shorter goals and once you achieved those, do something you really love, and that can be going out to a fine dinner, or watching your favorite movie, or spending a weekend in a fabulous holiday destination etc, – and it’s absolutely alright to do it all by yourself.

Share your experience

This is vital. Share what you learn with others. A lot of people are out there who seek stories like yours, which you already do by reading and watching about them. Put up a blog or may be even a vlog if you like, and tell small advises for the others which you learned by yourself. Those little things eventually will add up to create a loyal and dependable customer base around you. Listen to their responses and interact with them.

Once you try out those tips, you will realize how happy you are and most importantly with what you do. You’ll also realize some other ways of doing things and the feeling of making your life worth living.
