Tips to enjoying professional and personal life

Nobody gets to live life backwards. I have always talked about an aggressive approach towards life and some of you might be surprised by ways in which I would describe my mantras to live life to the fullest. Take a step back and you would find these are nothing but preserving a state of mind that derives an internal peace from your inner self. I have never tried to find real meaning of life because I am not sure where it will land me up. But what I have really found are the ways that make me feel good about me. I remember them, I practice them, and I often repeat them to myself in order to remove any chaos from core of my mind. Yes, they do help me and this is the place where I would love to expand them if I ever discover more.

Getting the perfect job for you

The Internet has become the primary source for large companies hiring new employees and for many jobseekers alike. According to a recent online survey, at least 30% of Kenyans are looking for jobs on the internet (the right place). This is though not a good percentage because in countries like UK almost 100% of job seekers are on the net. In the census results that were released last year, only 3.5 million Kenyans have access to the internet out of 40 million. This is disturbing because the most effective way to get a job these days is through the internet but today we will not be talking about just getting any job but a perfect job.
Sometime last year we wrote an article on ‘good jobs: bad jobs’ where we gave a comparison of various jobs. The problem we have in Kenya these days or among job seekers and our workforce is lack of belief. Just take time to think or imagine, if someone gave you a CEO’s job today, will you perform? If you believe you can’t, then this article is not for you. Many of those people in corporate offices these days are easily satisfied with a salary of Kshs. 100,000 or a figure there about. If you tell them to take risks and go for bigger jobs or even business, the fear of job security crops up. If you are among those people who are always hanging on job security, this article is not for you. Just imagine if you are working for one of our leading telecom company that we all know is in the process of restructuring. Where is job security? A job can come to an end the same way you found it. Papppp!!!
