UndividedAttention-Sept2020.png

 

A lot of people find it too difficult to focus on one thing for a longer period of time and their concentration may be interrupted for about a period of six times or even more per hour. It seems like the most challenging thing these days is to capture one’s attention completely.

 

Distractions come in various shapes and sizes. It’s like a shadow that follows us everywhere we go. It throws us off and robs us of our productivity - it takes our eyes away from the most important tasks that need to be prioritised.

 



According to a scientific research done in 2000, the average adult attention span has shrunk down to 8 seconds! Microsoft has proven this true through a report after a survey was done by thousands of participants to determine brain activity and how the mind was wired to process stimuli. The bad news is that it may continue to decrease for about 88% each year.

 

“The age in which we live, this non-stop distraction, is making it more impossible for the young generation to ever have curiosity or discipline... because you need to be alone to find out anything. ”



― Vivienne Westwood

Start a Dream Board


Have you got big dreams and goals? We all surely want to accomplish something significant in our lifetime ― not only for us, but also for the benefit of others and of future generations to come. The main question is, where do we need to start and how do we start strong?


Master Your Mindset

In order to tread the road to achieving great things, it’s very important to begin with getting the right mindset. Strive to always be filled with positive thoughts and uplifting ideas. Our subconscious is very powerful so we need to train it well to positively impact the way we live. It doesn’t sound that complicated but it’s actually what a lot of people struggle with. In reality, there’s no available blueprint for guaranteed success. Every once in a while you will feel like you’ve hit a wall but as long as you’re inspired and driven, you should be able to dust yourself off and get back up, taking all the valuable lessons you’ve learned from life experiences.


Visualise to Actualise


Growth starts by having a compelling vision to pursue greater heights. Visualisation is always a good mental exercise. Gather enough momentum then eventually put your thoughts and intentions into action with the help of visual aids. Tangible representations of dreams and goals can definitely give encouragement in making dreams come to life. Even the actual process of creating the dream or vision board can give you a better understanding of what you really want to achieve. It makes your mission more meaningful and at the same time, measurable. If you do not have a vision yet, create one! It doesn’t matter whether it’s groundbreaking or simple because you should only care about one thing - to make that vision real.


Some inspiring quotes to live by:

 


“Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.”




― Jack Canfield

“The reality is that whatever you are looking for is, at the same time, looking for you. It all starts with believing before seeing.”




― Dr Robert Anthony

“When you follow your bliss...doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else.”




― Joseph Campbell

CombinePatienceWithTiming-Sept2020-v2.png

Sometimes it can be hard to accept the difficult circumstances of life, however, the best option is to focus on the things that are actionable or what we can improve on and not the ones we do not have control over. Because no matter how hard we try, it will never budge, not even an inch.

 

“Hindsight teaches us that it is better to wait than to regret.”



― Andrena Sawyer, Author

 

Trust the process. When planning and doing something, we tend to expect to see fast results to happen straight away. Especially in this day and age of instant gratification, waiting can be painful and frustrating. Find comfort in knowing that there is wisdom in waiting. What we’re experiencing right now may not completely make sense but trust that someday it will!

 

“Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience. The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”



― Leo Tolstoy, Author

It comes to no surprise that “new collar” jobs are continuously booming. There are so many job openings at the moment that are difficult to fill due to the lack of appropriate talent and skill sets, requiring recruiters and hiring managers to spend more time and effort researching for the right candidates. What is this buzzword and what type of jobs qualify as “new collar” positions? Let's take a look at examples of professions:

Cyber Security Specialist

Mortgage Protection Specialist

Website Security Analyst

Dental Hygienist

Cloud Computing Optimisation

Medical Secretary

Application Developer

Medical Equipment Repairer

Database Administrator

Medical Sonographer

Systems Administrator

MRI Technologist

Data Analytics

Emergency Room Registered Nurse

Computer Hardware Designer

Pharmacy Technician

Project Manager

Customer Engagement Specialist

Robotic Welding

Cable Installation Technician

Field Service Engineer

Automotive Technician


Some new collar workers, specifically in the tech field, are steering away from the traditional 9-5 office routine as their jobs would often offer them flexible work arrangements. Because of that, they are able to navigate work-life integration successfully. Not only that, they are usually benefiting more financially and achieving more recognition and satisfaction career-wise that’s why nowadays, a lot of people have embraced this kind of contemporary work culture. Perhaps from now on, this may also change the way you look at jobs.
