‘’You should use the weekend to work on the person you would like to become, not to escape from the person you are now’’. A great quote to hold on to, if you are asking us! It happens a lot; people are suffering from their 5 days in a row 9 a.m.-5 p.m. job, because they are more passionate about a job with other working hours or even a job in where they can be their own boss. It is also those people who use the weekend to escape from their job; hit the bar on Friday for Friday-afternoon drinks, are suffering a hangover on Saturday, hit the bar again, are suffering a hangover on Sunday, and the workweek will start all over again. The weekend was fun, because there was no work, but furthermore? Are you recognizing this situation? In that case, it would be very useful to use the spare time in the weekend to actually develop yourself and make sure that you are becoming the best version of yourself; do the things you have to do to eventually indeed get the job you are passionate about! How? Read through beneath two tricks that might help you!
What is your aim?
In order to find out where you want to be in a few years, it would be very wise to what intrigues you. Where are you fascinated about? What is something you find so interesting, you think it will captivate for the rest of your working life. Go and find this out by doing online courses, have meetings with persons who might help you further, go start deepen and explore different work branches and attributed jobs! Before you know it, you might find out where your heart lies!
In order to get where you want to be, we suggest that you start creating a 5 year-plan. Where do you want to be over 5 year? How do you want to reach this? Which steps and actions do you have to undertake? Do not be too minimalistic in your plans and adventures, everything is possible! Throw your creativity out there, and try to think out of the box. If you are looking for a way to be more creative, you can always try to increase this by taking a sporting hour, relax a bit, or take some natural substances from for example a Smartshop (24High is a high-quality smartshop that might interest you!).
