Learning from the Experts
Over the years, we notice that many talented people attend interviews unprepared.
Yes, that's exactly the first questions to ask.
Why would you attend the interview?
Why do you want to land that job?
Why do you want to join that organization?
Why do you entitle that big increase?
Why are you better than others in the field?
If you can answer these questions, you are 20% ready to land that job.
However, if you have GOOD answers to these questions, you are 50% ready to land that job
In his international best seller EAT THAT FROG, Brian Tracy says that:
Time management is the management of the sequence of events in your life-- choose what you do first, what you do second, and what you do later if at all.
When you CHOOSE to do the most important thing first, rather than anything else, you immediately PUT YOUR LIFE ONTO THE FAST TRACK.
Sure, we agree that it’s good to exercise, but when was our last time in the gym? Or last went for a good walk? We put off attending training, taking up certifications, or even update our Resume, even though we know it is important.
I remember vividly how my first semester at college was caught up in the chaos, as I was struggling to understand the lectures. Before entering college, I knew I needed to brush up my English, but procrastination got the better of me!
Then, I had the worst embarrassing moment of my life. We had a 3 minutes self-introduction session for the freshman. As I spoke, my English Lecturer said she just could not understand what I said. As I tried harder to speak more gibberish, everyone in the class look at me in empathy. In those few minutes of utmost embarassment, I wished I could simply disappear, or, jump into an endless pit and never to show up again.
That incidence changed me completely! I started to do what I should have done. I started to read. To increase my vocabulary, I started to memorize 3 new words every single day.
Fortunately, I managed to earn the “Most Improved Performance” award from her at the end of the semester.
Lesson learned: Had I practiced “eat the frog” for the important stuff, I would have made a better difference-- earlier and faster.
"If you have to eat a live frog at all, it doesn't pay to sit and look at it for very long"
