EP43 - I wish I hadn't worked so hard
Isn't it interesting that one of the regrets of the dying was wishing they never worked as hard as they did?Sometimes the one thing we tend to overlook is the importance of time and how we use it.Time is the one assets that we can not get back once it is gone, so it's important we learn how to best use our time on a day to day basis.One thing to highlight is that we often spend a majority of time at work. Yet again highlight the importance of making the most of our free time to spend with friends and family.So how do we avoid working hard and work smart?It's necessary that we learn how to work smarter rather than harder, hard work cannot truly be avoided but you can arm and prepare yourself to work smarter:-If there is something you can outsource then leverage the benefits of the internet, there are a vast number of platforms which you can use to find freelancers.Review your current methods of work and identify areas that you can improve on, search far and wide whether that's a Google Search, investing in books or going on a course to aid you.Writing down your tasks, spending 5 minutes to plan your day can be the difference between working hard and working smart.Armed with your todo list you can prioritise tasks, which will help you understand where to spend your energyLimit your distractions by putting your phone on do not disturb or put it into Black and white mode, by avoiding distractions you should free up more time in your day.Questions always help with every situation so consider these:-Ask yourself - "What really matters in life?" - when working hard ask yourself is there something more important that you are ignoring.If you had 2 hours more a day what would you do? - If it screams out to spend more time with family then make a conscious decision to improve on those relationsWhat 3 things do I need to complete today?

I wish I had stayed in touch with my friendsIt's interesting to know that one of the common regrets of the dying is not realising the full benefits of old friendships.It's only up to their dying weeks do some come to the realisation and by then it is difficult to track them down.As individuals we often get ourselves caught up in our own lives and over time we let our friendships fade over the years.Have you been guilty of this?Naturally growing apart, lackof effort, or Distancing yourself?Some friendship naturally grow apart over time, and that is ok - we often grow at different times and some friendship are for a season. Some friendship have come to an end by choice may be due to a disagreement or a realisation and sometimes years later we reflect and feel we could have reacted differently.Some friendship have broken down due to a lack of effort.If you are reflecting on some friendship it is good to notice the causes to help you build and improve them.Showing AppreciationShowing your friends your appreciation to them goes a long way, whether it would be as simple as writing a card or a letter to them, or taking them out for an appreciation meal.We sometimes overlook the things that matter in life, and the best thing to do is take time out and reflect deeply on your relationships.TipsWork on communicationAsk questions like "What can I change to improve this friendship"Work out and understand each other - one of the biggest causes of conflict is misunderstanding and expectationsFrequency, make a commitment to speak, see each other on a regular basisFind events that you share common interestsMore Informationhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/9049120/Losing-touch-with-friends-most-common-deathbed-regret.htmlhttps://www.linkedin.com/pulse/i-wish-had-stayed-touch-my-friends-sharnee-bennett/https://www.bhavinionline.com/tag/regret-i-wish-i-had-stayed-in-touch-with-my-friends/https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/feb/01/top-five-regrets-of-the-dyingDon’t forget to follow us on our social media platformsWebsiteTwitterInstagramPinterestFacebookSoundcloudApple PodcastYoutube#tagmeinpodcast
EP39 -Being true to yourself and not others expectations
Being true to yourself and not others expectationsBelieve it or not, the most common regrets the dying have is not Being True to yourself and leaving to other peoples expectations.Are you surprised?Think about your past especially when you was in secondary/high school and all you cared about is fitting in; although puberty is a difficult moment we do have people around us placing expectation on us - like what is cool and what isn'tOne of the biggest expectations is usually from those closest to us - Family. Depending on your upbringing your parents may have said or visioned for you to be either a lawyer or doctor.Unknowingly these expectations could have a negative impact on our growth and development, even more worrying some may later resent their partners in the future.Go with that gut feeling!Often in life, we are faced with moments of decisions such as attending a friends party. Everyone is going and are hyped up for it but deep down you don't want to go.Your insides are screaming not to go, but you are worried people will label you as "boring". What do you do? If you go you will be fronting, expending unnecessary energy and waiting for the first opportunity to go home.ORDo you be true to yourself and have the courage to speak how you feel, "I'm not feeling it to be honest - it's a no from me. But have fun".Although difficult you aren't putting yourself in a situation you don't want to be in. Benefits of being true to yourselfYou are respecting yourself by being trueYou aren't using energy trying to maintain a personaYou will be happier for itHow to be true to yourself?We shared a few of our experiences that have helped:-Learn that you can't please everyoneLearn to be selfish at times for your own benefitUnderstand you have one life so make the most out of itSeek internal happiness - check out our previous episode on self-love Form a protective barrier from external voices and expectationsTake time out to reflectAsk yourself questions, why am I doing this, who am I doing this for?Remember you are the one that is walking around with your body for 24 hours, 7 days a week - do what is best for yourself.More Informationhttps://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-3617/The-Importance-of-Being-True-to-Yourself.htmlhttps://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-feeley/what-does-it-mean-to-be-t_1_b_8033654.htmlhttps://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-3617/The-Importance-of-Being-True-to-Yourself.htmlhttps://www.essentiallifeskills.net/betruetoyourself.htmlhttps://tinybuddha.com/blog/dare-to-live-10-unconventional-ways-to-be-true-to-yourself/Don’t forget to follow us on our social media platformsWebsiteTwitterInstagramPinterestFacebookSoundcloudApple PodcastYoutube#tagmeinpodcast
EP37 -Reflecting on your year
Reflecting on your yearAs the year comes to an end a thing we all seem to do is Reflecting; we often spend this time of the year reflecting on the 12 months events and we begin to set a tone for the next year.Have you ever been in a room where someone has asked: "what's your new year resolution going to be?"So 2017 is over, what now?Are you a person who declares to the world "New Year, New Me",  what about sending a message to all your contact via WhatsApp about the changes 2018 will bring.Now it is important to understand that not all changes will occur straight away, and changes that time to kick in.Theme of the yearDo you recap on the year and give it a theme? It's great to look at each year and add a theme. For example, if the biggest highlight of the year was strengthening relationships then you should call this year the year of relationship building.Questions are always the best way to reflect.Exploring starts by asking question, so take the time to sit down and ask yourself some questions like:-What did I like about this year?What did I not Like? What do I need to do to change itHow am I doing?What has been your biggest win?What has been your biggest low?What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about?If you had to describe your 2017 in 3 words, what would they be?What new things did you discover about yourself?What was your favourite place that you visited?Other Methods of reflectingUsing a vision board helps with reflecting, the visual representation of your goals can help you understand where you are on your journey.The most effective form is using a journal which has documented your every move over a period of time, you can easily pinpoint your wins and losses, your mistakes and your lessons.Quarter LivingRather than waiting for 12 months to reflect, perhaps try to break them down into quarters. Quarters are more manageable and make it easier to reflect and set the theme for the quarter.Just don't go overboard and state the predicted growth in Q1 will be 190%.Don't forget gratitudeWe often reflect on the things that went good and bad but sometimes the simplest things get ignored, just taking time out to realise what you have is important.Has your character changed?Shockingly over a 12 month period you characteristic can change, start your year off with a VIA Survey and reflect on it year on year.Tips for making 2018 greatSharing your goals with others helps a long way, perhaps use the start of the year wave to form some accountability partners where you check up on each other every 4 weeks to see how you are progressing.Perhaps keep a journal and try and document the next 365 days/52 weeks.Remember you can't achieve the world in 12 monthsIt's good to reflect on the year but don't be so hard on yourself if you don't meet all your goals, try and reflect on what you have learnt, and how much you have changed as an individual.More Informationhttps://greatist.com/live/reflect-on-your-yearhttp://www.lifehack.org/articles/productivity/20-questions-to-help-you-reflect-the-past-year.htmlhttps://anuschkarees.com/blog/2014/12/16/your-year-in-review-50-questions-to-help-you-reflect-appreciate-and-get-excited-for-2015Don’t forget to follow us on our social media platformsWebsiteTwitterInstagramPinterestFacebookSoundcloudApple PodcastYoutube#tagmeinpodcast
EP33 - Navigating The Office Environment
So you enter the professional world and now you need to learn how to navigate the work office environment and how to play in the office politics.We shared our lessons on navigating the work office environment and looked back at how we felt when we first start.Is it faking it or adapting?We questioned whether putting on our professional persona was us faking it or us adapting to our environment. Obviously, we can't do some of our home comforts in the workplace such as maybe farting or burping - I guess things you wouldn't do in public.But one of the big difference is the way you communicate - the language you use whilst in the workplace is different to how you talk when you are at home.You will rather than saying "What's up" you'll probably say "Hey, how are you doing?"This communication extends to way you communicate digitally via email and instant messaging, as employees we are sometimes aware that our communication is monitored.Show up?It's important that you approach work in a professional manner, you are paid to complete your job and as a result, you should take being on time seriously.Being early speaks volumes, even if it's to meeting or deadlines.What also goes a long way is being socially active, by attending the work social - even the ones you don't enjoy you have the opportunity to build and form new relationships. From these relationships, you can utilise to work your way in the office but also it may present opportunities.Admittedly the social outings do not appeal to everyone but it holds more weight attending than not. We have all heard the line "it's not what you know, it's who you know!"Looking the part?Your images go a long way in the work environment, it gives people a representation of you even before speaking to you.Now some of the office dress codes are excessive such as the way your hair is cut or if you are a female you having to wear heelsShine brighter than othersNow the work environment is a competitive space and you have to be on your toes. Don't allow yourself to get comfortable and continue to strive for the stars.Emailing TipsWe both spoke about using emails to our advantage including sending them before and after work to show that you are going above and beyond.Also, the frequency of checking your email is important, try and check them 3 times a day. Morning (9 am), Afternoon (1 pm) and Evening (3 pm).What you may be interested in is setting up rules on your mailbox:-Read FolderThis folder is for emails you need read when the time is rightCCThis folder once configured will send all those emails you have been CC'd inDeath RowThis folder is used for emails that you aren't sure if you should delete just yet.EvidenceThis folder is important especially when it comes to appraisal time, you will have all your evidence stocked up.Play the gameNavigating the office is a game, you need to know the objective and requirements of your role and ensure you fulfil it.Even when going to an interview try and do some research behind your interviewer, find out their interest and use that knowledge to your advantage.The Office PoliticsOften people talk in the office and you have to make the decision to either join in or stay on the outside. Naturally, as human, we love to talk but it doesn't have to be negative.It's often forgotten in the work environment that we are all human, be friendly in the office and don't forget to smile you never know what sort of opportunities or connections could be made.Another side of dealing with the office is handling or identity problems, with these problems some people run to their managers but it's important you can provide some solutions.TAKE CREDITJump and shout about your successes, refrain from saying "we" when it was actually you. Learn to say "I" sometimes.#tagmeinpodcast
