Career Advice

Let’s face it: everyone is busy, especially during fall when commitments surrounding the new school year as well as an onslaught of holiday planning can become incredibly overwhelming. You’re constantly wondering, Where did summer go?! It’s a rude awakening after a too-short break. If you’re feeling a little run down already, these tips can help you power through a long work week followed by an action-packed weekend.

  1. Think of the big picture.
    Don’t let the little details bog you down. Little frustrations, negative feedback, and unexpected challenges can easily dampen your spirit on a daily basis. Keep the end game in mind or remember how small this bump is in the road.
  2. Perfect your daily routine.
    Every day should be filled with a nice mix of friends, family, and you time as well as work and play. Find the perfect mix for you. Develop a schedule that meets your needs and your goals. Easier said than done, but worth a concerted effort!
  3. Utilize your strengths.
    Ideally, your current position would put your best talents to good work. If it doesn’t, offer to take on a project that does. Or find other ways throughout the day to utilize your strengths. When we do good work, we feel accomplished, we get great feedback, and it can improve our mood.
