Questioning Leads to Understanding

child questionSome of the greatest minds in the world make a habit of doing the same thing- asking questions. We have a short time on this earth, and if we aren’t constantly curious, then we aren’t truly engaged. With so many viewpoints, cultures and ways of understanding the world, to assume that we have conquered understanding is to severely limit our development.

I try to treat every day as an adventure and appreciate the opportunities I have to explore. I’ve found that this has given me a more meaningful, interesting and fun life.

Especially as I’ve watched my children grow, I have a fresh appreciation for maintaining a childlike sense of wonder. Imagination is the heart of innovation and invention comes from asking questions.

So get in the habit of indulging your curiosity and trying to learn as much as we can to achieve success and know ourselves.

You will never achieve success if you don’t ask questions every step of the way. If you don’t question your actions you won’t know if you are on the right track until it is too late and that could prove to be costly to your ambitions. Questioning your actions and motives will also give you a better understanding of yourself.

How You Can Develop A Proper Skill-set For A New Job

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

If you have just entered into a new line of work and don’t posses proper skill experience, don’t worry. Many people feel this way when starting a new job, but there are several ways to impress others, build your skill-set, and gain some significant work experience.

Serve Others. What do people love more than a perfect employee? One who makes their life easier, and in work there are plenty of opportunities to help out. Look for ways to brighten someone’s day by helping someone every day. I once worked in an office with a guy who would ask all his teammates every day what he could do to make them happy. This attitude is infectious and really makes for a positive work environment. Start the trend in your workplace and become everyone’s favorite person. Read this article to learn more about the importance of good service.

The Importance of Being Earnest. So you aren’t flawless. That is no excuse to be down on yourself. Work hard and do what you can to the best of your ability while always seeking to improve the situation. Ask questions when needed, but always attempt to learn more and figure stuff out on your own. This will show others that even though you may not know everything now, you’re still a valuable asset to the company.

See the Silver Lining. There are always reasons to complain in both work and in life, but those who make the active choice to be positive about each situation they face will live better, have more energy and stay motivated. It’s a simple lifestyle change that will revolutionize your perspective. If you expect and believe that good things will happen, you’ll do well.

Look for opportunities within your community. Go look for some courses related to your profession, which are being offered in your community. Public libraries and community colleges serve as excellent resources for learning new skill. This is because they usually offer amateurs low-budget programs through which you can acquire the basic skills needed for IT jobs, accounting or business related jobs etc. Some fields require advanced certificates like a bachelor’s degree and such. In such cases you can take up part-time bachelor’s courses at a university, which will allow you to schedule your classes around your work timings.

Life is an Experiment: Approach it Intelligently

with an intelligent hypothesis

Eventually, it may dawn on you that life is one big experiment. You can never be completely sure how everything will turn out, but through educated guesses and experience, you can predict it much more accurately.

With age, generally, comes wisdom. You learn lessons along the road of life that will help you to stop doing things that you know will probably end badly. And you can learn from the things that have turned out well, and try to replicate those experiments. Luckily, sometimes life works out the way you hoped. If not, it probably turned out how it was supposed to.

Any good scientist will tell you that they’ve had experiments go wrong. Life is no different than that. You may have an excellent plan and work hard to accomplish your goals, but one small error can throw everything off. So remember, even if perfection is unreachable, you can still come close sometimes, if you measure your actions carefully.

Don’t be afraid to try new things and add a little spice to your life, but overall, it’s good to stick to what you know and develop the formulas that work for you. When you think positively and act intelligently, your experiment may turn out great.

How to Win at the Game of Life

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance

Life can be a lot like a game. Each roll of the dice could result in a great advance or a devastating downfall. Unlike a game of chance, your next move isn’t always left totally to chance. Of course things will happen that are beyond your control, but a lot of what happens is a direct benefit or consequence of the actions you have chosen.

Your life should be played more like a game of chess. Sometimes, with careful planning of your next moves, your goals will work out as planned. And even when they don’t, it may be easier to deal with whatever the other guy might throw your way.

And you need to remember, it’s great to celebrate your successes, but don’t get too caught up in congratulating yourself. You have to pay attention and be prepared, because you never know what kind of obstacles may pop up ahead of you.

The best thing you can do is to think positive, always be open to learning a new lesson, and take your experiences to heart. A mistake may sometimes be devastating to your game plan, but you have to get up, brush yourself off, and start plotting a recovery. A mistake is only a mistake if you don’t learn from it.
