I’m declaring February as a month to focus on you. Focus on your needs, wants and desires; as well as your accomplishments, strengths and personal development.
In this week’s summary, you’ll find articles to help focus on you. Because, in order to be your best and to be able to help other people, you have to take care of yourself.
You’ll find a holistic theme in these articles. Let’s take a break and obsess a little less over finding a new job. If you don’t focus on your whole self, it can have negative impacts – depression, anxiety, and other mental and physical health issues. Here’s what you’ll find:
- Career achievements you should keep track of
- The value of behavioral assessments
- Do you have a personal development plan
- 3 career exploration tools
- Setting the right job search goals
- What not to say to job seekers (if you think you’ve had it bad, read this story)
- A little help for introverts
- Tips to boost your happiness chemicals
