    How to improve my skills for the future workplace - Oxygean?

    "But how do I know what skills I am missing? Or which ones to improve? Because, well for me, I don't even know where to start when I am not sure what is wrong or what to improve." One good place is communication skills! We can all do better at that. For example, a free tool is YouTube. Today...

    How to stop fearing failiure?

    Hi, I've found it's helpful for me to "visit" my current posture from time to time. What that means for me is to take a peek! By noticing "right now" . . . what is my posture? And adjust as needed. Then? Repeat randomly throughout the day. Hope that's a useful mental exercise. blessings...

    What really motivated you to become successful?

    Removing people from your circle

    As humans, we tend to pick up the habits of people we associate with. So if you're faced with a life-or-death need to lose weight, you probably would fare better if you sought out the company of people who are not going to tend to encourage you to eat more. I suspect that's where the advice you...

    Statement inspired by "Think and grow rich"?

I did reread that book last year. Sometimes I put the words (on the rock!) on the table in front of me during the day...

    Statement inspired by "Think and grow rich"?

    Yes! In fact, it's written on a rock (so it stays dry) that I keep in the bathroom. That way, I see it more than just the last thing at night and first thing in the morning: "For with God nothing shall be impossible."

    Is it good to do a Job after B.Tech or do MBA?

    One plus to getting work first is that your employer may pay for your MBA. For example, a friends' daughter works for a venture capital firm and they want her to have an MBA, so they are paying for it right now. More personally (but not recently!) I taught at a university while they paid for my...
