9 Tips for Career Starters

9 Tips for Career Starters

I liked this post from Get Rich Slowly, entitled “Nine Tips for Young People Starting Careers,” but I disagree that they relate only to the young. I think they’re the kinds of lessons we should reconsider once every six months, as a checkup for how we’re conducting ourselves.

Maybe the young folk don’t know all these lessons yet (I feel this way when in retail settings), but some of us with decades of business experience could use the refresher, too. Here’s the short list. On the site, each of these points has a huge bit of description tied to it.

  • Know when to go.
  • Don’t treat the job like a chore.
  • Think like your employer.
  • Behave professionally.
  • Be flexible

Read the rest of the article at the site, and re-introduce yourself to those great bits of wisdom.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
