Latest From the Blog

  Want to end the year on a positive note and start the New Year on a high?   Have fun with these 10 countdown suggestions that will set you up for a fresh start to a Happy New Year!   10… Clean out 10 things you don’t need any more Every year we accumulate a lot of clutter. How about clearing some of it out? Start with 10 items (and if the mood strikes keep going)! Donate, trash or pass along. Workspace, home or car…it doesn’t matter. Just free yourself of things you don’t need. It’s fast and easy and you will be amazed at how good it feels.   9… Make a list of 9 things you are grateful for Nothing is quite as uplifting as feelings of gratitude and appreciation. This is always a good exercise but especially when thinking of the year gone by and planning the one ahead. Think of at least 9. Consider keeping the list handy and adding to it throughout the year. Gratitude encourages positive emotions and can even contribute to better health.   8… Write down the 8 best things you did in the past year It’s easy to forget our many achievements or experiences (big or small – business or personal) over the course of a year. Think through the year and celebrate all you have done. Write down at least 8 but keep going if you think of more!   7… Take 7 minutes to look through your photos from the past year This simple exercise will make you very happy and remind you of special moments you may have forgotten. It may even give you ideas for the following...   6… Make a list of 6 things you will do to make you happy in the coming year This is different than making a resolution. Simply make a list of at least 6 things you want to do during the year that would make you feel good. Visit your great aunt, spend a day at the spa, learn to make risotto, change your hair colour, float on the lake in a canoe. Keep these on your radar by writing them down. Anticipation is a great motivator and planning ahead to be happy will help make it so!   5… Take a moment to compliment or praise someone Unexpected positive comments can do wonders for the person receiving them but just as much or more for the person giving. Try it out..aim for 5 times in a week. Tell the cashier with the fabulous nail art that it looks…well fabulous. Thank your server at dinner for being cheerful. Tell a co-worker when you like something they’ve done. You will make their day…and you will feel great!   4… Remove 4 online interactions that drag you down Let go of negative energy. Tired of getting emails from a subscription you made years ago but no longer read? Unsubscribe. Feel annoyed with a chronic complainer on social media? Delete the connection. It only takes a minute but the benefits are real.   3… Add 3 things to your resume (more if you have them) You no doubt picked up some new skills or added to your experience during the year. Jot down everything you can think of on the most recent version of your resume so you don’t forget. Then if the coming year presents a new opportunity, updating your resume will be easy…not to mention you'll be reminded of how much you learned.   2… Practice your New Year’s resolution at least twice You’ll feel great and have fun if you get started ahead of time on your New Year’s resolution. Planning to read more? Get into a book and read at least twice. Walk more? Take 2 walks. Eat better? Make 2 healthy meal choices. Sounds like a small step but this way when the New Year begins you’ve already had some success and you’ll be motivated to keep going.   1… Wish yourself a great New Year! After all…you wish it to others dozens of times. Take a minute to extend the sentiment to yourself! Promise yourself to make it all you want it to be! Think positive, practice gratitude and plan to be happy! Then set about making it so!   Happy New Year! May it be filled with joy, abundance, good health and love...with a little adventure thrown in just to keep things exciting!     Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.

Do you have big plans for your career but feel like you aren’t making progress? It’s a common feeling. The problem is that we tend to recognize our career growth only with notable milestones like completing a course or an upward move to the next level. But let’s face it. Big moves don’t happen every day and aren’t always possible. The reality is that most careers are built steadily over time. Not by way of big steps. Our learning happens daily but we don’t recognize the progress we are making because it’s so gradual. What if you could change that? What if we put more focus on our day-to-day learning? It’s one of the best (and simplest) things you can do to enhance your career growth. These small (and easy to do) but powerful daily habits will help.   Read Reading has so many benefits that's it's definitely worth making a daily habit! And before you jump to "I don't have time", reading doesn’t have to mean an entire book! How about reading an article on an industry website? Or a blog post from an industry influencer or trend setter. Read a professional development book a few pages or one chapter at a time. (This can be effective in absorbing more information as well!) Do it just before or after lunch. Find a spot in the day that works. Try reading a news article on a current affairs issue to learn more. Read bios of business leaders or people that interest you. If you are short on time, commit to reading a novel 5 minutes at a time before bed. The point is…just read . Choose to do it . Make it a daily habit . Reading - expands your thinking challenges your perspective incites creativity and improves your vocabulary All of those things will enhance your career success. (Not to mention make you a very interesting person to talk to.)   Exercise your curiosity Nothing supports growth better than encouraging and feeding your curiosity. Ask questions. Learn something new. Once again this isn’t about massive leaps. Ask a question in a meeting. Learn about the work of a colleague or friend. Look up the meaning of an unfamiliar word. Find out more about the latest app. You get the idea. Commit to learning or discovering one new thing every day. It all adds up. Seeking answers or new ideas supports communication and research skills and helps to sustain a positive and optimistic mindset. It is the best antidote for complacency. Every time you embrace your curiosity you are opening yourself to new and different ideas, learning from the experience of others and adding to your basket of knowledge. Make it a habit. It will keep you moving forward and help shape your career.   Reflect and Record This is easy and fun and takes only a minute. And it can be surprisingly powerful. Write down just one thing from the day that you are proud of. Make it positive. Something you accomplished or learned or feel you did really well. The key is to reflect quickly. Don’t dwell on it or take a lot of time. What comes to mind first? This simple habit can help you recognize the growth you are making over time. The real power happens when you read back. You will see what is important to you. It may help remind you of milestones when updating your resume or preparing for an interview. It can even provide insight into the direction for your career as you recognize what you have accomplished or what excited you.   The key is to make these small steps a habit - a part of your daily routine. They don’t take much time at all. Do them consciously and they will become second nature. Remember: Read daily Exercise your curiosity daily Reflect and record daily Make these a habit and when the opportunity comes for you to take a big step in your career you’ll be that much further ahead.   Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.

  We never quite lose that back-to-school feeling do we? Remember as a kid that sense of excitement or anticipation…or even anxiety? As September arrived we knew the fun-filled days of summer were over. It was back to schedules, homework and extra curricular activities. But despite wishing the long summer days would last, there was plenty to look forward to. Reuniting with friends we hadn’t seen all summer. A new outfit. And backpack. New school supplies. (Especially a brand new set of coloured pencils!) Our favourite activity or club began again and the weather was mostly still warm and wonderful. In some ways it was nice to slip back into routine. Maybe a fresh start to do better? Ever notice how that back-to-school mindset carries over to the business world? The summer tends to bring a relaxed atmosphere at the office. Folks are away on holidays, meetings are a bit less frequent and often more casual. Long patio lunches are enjoyed along with short Fridays and lots of long weekends. And if you were lucky enough, maybe you enjoyed some well-needed time away from work. And then comes September. It’s back to serious business and routine and a full schedule. Why not embrace that “back to work” mentality and let it energize you into action? September marks the end of the third quarter of the year and is a great month to plan and execute a successful year-end! Here are some ideas on making September an awesome month for your business and for you personally! Review Your Business Plan September is a perfect month to review business plan for the year and see how you are doing. This is especially helpful if you aren’t doing it on a regular basis. If you are right on track, great. Keep up your plans to make sure all your objectives are met or exceeded! If you feel like you are falling behind this is the perfect time to set a plan to catch up. You still have several months to ensure you have your best year yet! It’s not too late! Start With A Bold Move Make that phone call or have that meeting you’ve been putting off. Get the one thing done you are dreading most. Don’t let it weigh you down. Jump in. Boldly taking care of something you aren’t really looking forward to will set the tone and energize you to push toward a great year end. Reconnect Remember how great it was to see friends after the long summer when you were in school? Using that same sentiment, get in touch with an old colleague or friend…or both. It’s easy to let relationships slide and hard work to keep them. But we all know how valuable they are. September is a great time to reconnect…and you’ve got a great opener! “How was your summer?” Start Fresh Just like with back to school, start September with a clean slate. Prepare for the busy months ahead. Clean up your desk. Refreshing your workspace will help clear the way for a great final quarter. There is truth to the idea that physical clutter can also clutter our thinking! Clean out your email or old files and photos and even your briefcase/backpack. Check your supplies and buy anything you need. (Maybe those new coloured pencils?) Bring a little green warmth into the office with a new plant. Buy something new to wear. Seriously. Nothing like a fresh outfit to dish up a boost of confidence! Don’t over commit It’s common to have the September calendar fill up quickly with everyone in the same mindset of “getting back down business”. Between business, social commitments and re-adjusting to family routines it can quickly become overwhelming. Try to leave a bit of breathing space in your schedule. It will help you stay on track with your own plan. Take the Pressure Off the Holidays (Yes they are really that close!) Knowing how busy the holiday season can be, do something in September that helps take the pressure off. Book the company lunch or party. Plan where your friends will have their annual dinner. Buy one (or more) of the gifts you know will be on your shopping list. We all know that once September arrives, the holidays are not far behind. Make a to-do list and get a jump on it. Every little thing you do now will make a big difference later.             Stretch the Summer Don’t forget - when September arrives there are officially still a few weeks of summer remaining. Make a point to continue enjoying the great weather. The long winter will feel that much shorter. Have a couple of patio lunches while the weather still permits! Make your days off count by being outdoors as much as possible. It will do wonders for your well being.     Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.
