How to Jazz up Your Career This January

Feeling tapped out already despite the recent festive break? Beat the blues and Jazz up your January by inspiring inspiration!

Have a technology-free hour

Despite how helpful technology is in our general life, it can be remarkably detrimental to our focus and productivity. Think about how many times you reach to check your phone during the day. It’s a lot, isn’t it? (Us too, don’t worry.)

Take an hour out everyday and put the phone away. 

Keep the distraction at bay even further and step away from your computer or television screen. It sounds crazy in this day and age to suggest putting down the techno, but you’ll be surprised at what you can find yourself thinking when you have the clarity to.

Focus on your goals – not those of society’s

We’re told to do things in a certain way from childhood. School, university, marriage, kids. The implicit rules we need to follow can rope us into a narrow way of thinking, without us even knowing it. 

Spend some time focusing on what you find important and make your objectives from there. Breaking out of the box can be scary, but it’s unbelievably rewarding.

Focus on your passions

“Genius Hour” is a movement which encourages creativity in a work environment. The concept centres on the idea of spending an hour every day to focus on a passion project during your work time. The kicker? It’s ideal if the project isn’t related to work at all. We know, we couldn’t believe it either!

Spending time developing your passion means you have the innovative thought flowing throughout the day, which allows you to tap deeper into your work with more quality and efficiency. It’s the definition of a win-win situation.

Hone your passions with an online short course

Surround yourself with inspiration

If you work in a clinical space, your thoughts will probably emanate that. The more creativity you have surrounding you, there more creativity you’ll be able to conjure yourself! 

Take your workspace and make it exciting for you. 

This can be simple! Do something small like adding a vision board, changing your default background image, or listening to pumped up music. Whatever you find exciting, make it a daily part of your work life! You’ll be amazed at the difference the small things can make.

Add to your skills resume
