Know What You Don’t Know

Why are people too proud to admit when they don’t know something? This causes far more problems than it solves in our modern world of business and life. Information is always at the tips of your fingers in the smartphone age, there is truly no reason to be unable to admit when you don’t know something.

Humility is a characteristic that makes people more personable, and easier to get along with. The first step in humility is knowing what you don’t know. There is no shame in not knowing something. The true issue is being afraid to ask for help when you need it, whether you’re afraid to admit you don’t know something, or you’re afraid to ask for help. Trust me, asking for help will never make a leader or boss upset when you genuinely want to learn something, what will make them angry is when you can’t admit you don’t know and end up causing a much larger issue in the long run.

That’s enough of this rant for now, but there will be more posts to come soon.

Back to Reality

All good things come to an end right. After spending a week in what is basically a paradise it’s now time to return home to the hustle and bustle of daily life.

As much as a vacation is an amazing feeling, and you can really distance yourself mentally and get into a true state of relaxation, it’s nice to come home. By the end of every vacation, I always feel ready to come home. As strange as it is I end up missing work. I don’t feel like I’m getting bogged down, or worried about the amount of work piling up, I just eventually start to miss the day to day hustle and bustle I’m used to once I’ve spent a couple days relaxing.

If you truly love what you do like I do, I’d think that you too may end up missing the satisfaction you get from a job well done after a solid week of leaving your mind completely at ease. This week of not a worry on my mind, and never without a cold drink in my hand has left me fully relaxed, fully recharged, and ready to come back at full strength and not risk burning out anytime soon.

If you can’t step back and relax and enjoy some time to yourself, then you should. It’ll inevitably help you along your own Climb to Success.

Until next time,

You Don’t Get What You Want With Thoughts

“The universe does not give you what you want through thoughts. It gives you what you demand through actions.”

I love this quote in its entirety because it holds true in the lives of virtually everyone. Sure some people have gotten lucky, but the vast majority of us have to go out and work our tails off day in and day out to achieve what we want. So what is it you’re thinking about all the time that you want? What can you do to demand that thing from the universe? I promise it isn’t coming your way just by thinking about it, get out there and make it yours.

I’m still on vacation, but this quote just couldn’t wait until I got back.

Until next time,

Vacation

This week I’m out of town taking the opportunity to rest my mind and keep the burnout at Bay. This vacation is more than just a test though, a vacation to me is a time to consumer information without distraction. A great time to read a new book, meet new people, and become a better version of yourself, all without the common distractions you face at home.

Have a great week everybody!
