Continuously improving yourself is not only vital, but also satisfying to see your own growth. However, we often put unrealistic standards and actually never celebrate those achievements.
We are quick into moving towards "More, Better and Faster" which seems to be a never ending loop. I recently published a blog post with a call to action "Dear millennial, RELAX":
💫 You don’t need to be a star to be happy. The happiest people are the ones who are also content with the simple things in life.
🌞 Find joy in your daily routine. There are thousands of great things around, you just need to look with a different perspective.
🙏 Get comfortable with yourself – you are great as you are. The world is too fast to focus on your weaknesses, so rather enhance your strengths.
What are your thoughts on personal development?
I see we have a "big elephant" in the room. More and more studies highlight increasing employee engagement issues.
While there are many ways on how to address it, both from an employer and employee perspective, I would like to talk about potential career break benefits.
Last year I went through this journey myself. It was not an easy decision. Leaving a nice and secure job, a respective company to jump into the unknown; volunteering in rural Uganda with women.
A career break can be tough, but one thing’s for sure; you learn a lot and come back a bit different. If you have some similar thoughts such as;
What is my purpose? Why do I do what I do? Where am I going?
If you answered any of those questions with “yes”, I’d I like to invite you to read my blog post where I share how I experienced my own career break.
Recently I attended a super insightful Women in Tech 2020 conference which united together so many inspiring women from all over the world.
Even though recording videos is so out of my comfort zone, I decided to do it by sharing my key takeways in 2 minutes.
What a great initiative from Catalyst organization to increase our awareness about gender biases at the workplace which influences women careers.
Studies have shown that indeed women who portray the same behaviors as men are perceived differently.
