New Year’s Resolutions 2019

Dear #careerlion readers, let’s start off this blog by wishing you all a very happy new year. May this year bring you everything you desire, health, and happiness. May it give you all the direction that you may crave and the headspace to make this year even better than any of the successful ones before.

The start of a new year, of course, is paired with new year’s resolutions for many of us. We blogged about this previously. Today I will of course share with you my new year’s resolutions, but the tips and tricks we shared before still stand. Therefore, I will provide you with a small recap and reminder and I will try to elaborate more on my plan to make them work.

Lessons 2018

With the end of 2018 in sight, this week’s blog is dedicated to the lessons we learned during the year. Career Lions is all about engineering your life and self-improvement. This goes hand in hand with evaluating how you have been doing and what are those major lessons that you have learned recently.

How to Motivate Yourself

Earlier this year, I wrote a blog for you on motivating others. With the winter blues well kicking in, especially coming home after work in the dark, this week’s blog is about motivating yourself. Motivating yourself is what is going to set you apart, true for any area in which you want to excel really. But how do you keep yourself motivated day in and day out, even on those days that you just want to stay in bed and watch Netflix all day? I hope the tips and tricks in this blog will help you power through your off-days and realise the goals you have set for yourself.

You don’t have to do anything

Coming home since my three-week holiday break hasn’t been as relaxing and refreshing as I would have expected it to be. I mean, dealing with uncertainty has always been a little hard for someone with anxious tendencies like me, but with stuff going on at work and with my health, anxiety might just have reached its peak. Therefore, Lianne Keemink’s (Dutch) book Je Moet (bijna) Niks (which translates into: You have to do (almost) nothing), came as a blessing. In her book Keemink, also known from the self-help hipster blog, gives her insights and lessons she learned from the world of self-help books in a nice and down to earth manner. As she gave some good reminders for us A-type personalities, I thought I would share my favourite ones with you.
