  • Topic of this Week: "When should you change your job? (January 6, 2018)"

     There are many times in your life you feel the urge to change jobs to get rid of the current boring situation, or sometimes you wonder if you should create a challenge for yourself to generate an opportunity to enhance your career? All you need is a suitable time. But how can you know when it is the suitable time, when is the thought of being bored at work is only temporary sometimes.   

    Changing career has never been easy. Because when deciding to change job that means you have to change your familiar environment, get rid of your habits, and require a lot of effort to adapt to new areas, to absorb new skills. So there exists tremendous risk of failure. Especially, when you are married people with pressure to earn money to take care of your lovers or to feed your children.  
    On average, a person can change from 3 to 5 jobs in their life for a very simple reason: they don't have the right choice for themselves. Although they have researched and followed the instructions to choose a suitable job, but it is unlikely that the job will be sustainable. Making the wise decision in your career move is the best way to ensure a successful career and a bright future.

    PERFECTIONISM (December 23, 2018)

    (20:17:31 PM 21/12/2018)

    I used to be a  perfectionist in my teaching job, which frequently drove me crazy and I  wept more than once when the students refused to follow my guidelines  and made silly mistakes, thereby making less progress as expected.  Things picked up when I realized what I experienced was frustration,  stress, anxiety and self-blame. To me, being a perfectionist leads to  considerable burden and procrastination. Then I have gradually given up  perfectionism and accepted flaws.
      On the other hand, I find  perfectionism necessary in some aspects of life. I really admire some of  my friends, who set high standards for their work and their  relationships and relentlessly strive to meet the standards whatever  happens. From my point of view, the perfectionism at least helps them  develop more responsibility at work and be more selective in the choice  of partners.
       Are you a perfectionist? Come to Advance this week to enjoy fruitful discussion.
     
      QUESTIONS TO PONDER:


     1. Define perfectionism in your own words. Are you a perfectionist in some aspects of life? Tell your story.
      2. Why do some people tend to become perfectionists? Do you think this  quote is right? ““At its root, perfectionism isn’t really about a deep  love of being meticulous. It’s about fear. Fear of making a mistake.  Fear of disappointing others. Fear of failure. Fear of success.” -  Michael Law
     3. What are the advantages of being a perfectionist? Give some examples in your work and relationships.
      4. What are the disadvantages of being a perfectionist? Why do some  people maintain their perfectionism though they are distressed by it?
      5. How can people overcome perfectionism? What attitude should they  adopt to be relaxed while being still demanding in what they set out to  do?
