|Career / A Plan Of Action by rilwan09: 8:26am On Jun 07, 2020|
What do you want from life? What do you want to achieve?
Goal setting helps us to become more aware and purposeful in making the decisions that create our reality. Without clear goals and a plan to achieve them, our dreams and wishes remain just that- dreams and wishes.
When you set goals, you take control of your life and focus on what is important. You make improved decisions and better use of your time and other resources.
Follow these steps to create your own action plan. You can also download our personal action plan template to fill in as you go through each step.
1: Get in the right mindset
Make yourself important
By setting personal goals, you are choosing to improve as a person and live a better life. Spend a moment thinking about where you are right now and where you would like to be.
Accept what you cannot change
To move forward, you need to let go of the past. Learn from it and let it go. Your new life can start now.
Identify what motivates and inspires you
It is hard to achieve a goal you do not care much about. Decide what is really important to you. Which ideas give you a feeling of excitement?
2: Write your action plan
Consider short, medium and long-term goals
What do you want your life to look like in 3 months, 6 months, 12 months and beyond? It can be helpful to have goals that are both big and small.
Consider all areas of your life
Think about whether you have dreams and goals for different areas of your life:
* health and fitness
* relationships and friendships
* home and family
* work and career
* travel and recreation
* hobbies and skills
You might have goals for some areas but not others, and that’s okay. Start writing down your ideas.
Write your goals
Goals that are not written down are at risk of remaining just an idea. Writing them down makes them concrete and important.
3: Take action
The only way to achieve goals is to do something. Actions are the building blocks from which you create your life.
Keep your action plan in a place where you can see it and refer to it regularly. You may also wish to place reminders or prompters around your home environment.
Check your progress daily or as appropriate for your goal. Track progress on the timeline.
4: Accept challenges and stay positive
Achieving goals takes effort. If it were easy, you would have it already. Know that ups and downs are a part of the process. Reflect on these challenges and so that you can learn and grow from them.
Your plan may need to be adjusted as you progress. The important thing is to not allow self-doubt and discouragement to sneak in. Regardless of where you are in the process, there is always a way forward. Back yourself and stay positive.
|Religion / Bouncing Back In Difficult Times by rilwan09: 10:15am On May 31, 2020|
It’s not easy overcoming challenges that life brings your way. A big part of how you’re able to cope comes from your resilience - your ability to cope with challenges, deal with difficult feelings, and “bounce back” after a tough situation or difficult time. It’s also the ability to adapt to difficult circumstances that you can’t change, and keep on thriving.Your family, your community and who you are as an individual affect your capacity for resilience. In your family, communication, parenting styles and support from outside the family play an important part. Environmental or community factors that affect your resilience can include social conditions, education, health and community participation and inclusion. Your own self-concept, social skills and physical health also affect your resilience.
It’s important to know that anyone can strengthen their resilience. Here are some ideas:
1. Connect with other people. Building a network of social supports strengthens resiliency. Play on a sports team, get involved in the arts, or volunteer in your community.
2. Maintain a daily routine. A routine provides consistency to help reduce stress.
3. Take care of yourself. Eat well, have fun, get enough rest, and exercise.
4. Try to keep things in perspective during tough times. Remember that things will change, and that you have made it through difficult times in the past.
5. Set goals that challenge you to learn and grow. Taking on new experiences and getting out of your comfort zone to accomplish your goals builds your capacity to be resilient.
Like it or not, change is inevitable. Learn to accept, embrace and grow from the change. Starting over will feel easier, and you be able to go with the flow more gracefully. It may not feel like it at the time, but slow and steady steps will help you heal, grow and evolve into a more rounded being who can bounce back when life knocks you down; How do you keep going when the going gets tough?

|Business / Tips On Becoming A Social Media Manager (videos Included) by rilwan09: 2:42pm On Feb 15, 2017|
It’s an undisputed fact that every business needs to be
active in social media. The ever-changing demands of the
modern day consumer requires brands to think fast and
adapt quickly in order to stay one step ahead.
The role of a social media manager has appealed to the
mass generation of socially-active internet users. It’s hard
not to. Especially when some might think that you can earn
big bucks from posting Facebook updates. Hardly.
Being a social media manager is kind of like being a stand-
up comedian. You have to quickly understand your audience
and your engagement with them is vital. In order to
accomplish this, you need to know if the audience is
laughing at your jokes and you need to know this in real-
time. If you can do this, then you have already won the
Being a social media manager brings with it some key
benefits within a freelance setting. The most recognisable
being the fact that you are your own boss. You make the
decisions and answer to no one. You send the invoices and
you set the policies. Heck, you could sit in your underpants
all day on the computer if you wanted to.
The other is money.
Social media is an in-demand role, but one that companies
are still struggling to come to terms with. Some companies
realise and understand the value social media could bring to
their enterprise and are willing to invest heavily in robust
social media campaigns . Being your own boss, you can
decide how to set your costs and price accordingly.
Skills Of A Social Media Manager
You should have a good grasp of the basic marketing
principles. Some education in marketing would be beneficial,
but otherwise you can find many quality resources online.
Your experience doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to
life experiences. Have you managed your own social media
profiles for a while? Do you know how to effectively
maintain your own social accounts and understand what
I touched on this at the beginning of the article. If you are
not a sociable person – someone who doesn’t like
communicating much and isn’t very outgoing, then
becoming a social media manager just isn’t for you. Sure,
you can hide behind a keyword and monitor for a while, but
clients will usually want to meet, speak on the phone, or
have Skype sessions at some point.
You don’t have to have a Prince2 certificate, but you do
need to be able to manage projects and your time well. It’s
typical for social media manager’s to work with multiple
clients at any one time. Keeping tabs on everything is
important so that it doesn’t get overwhelming.
Social media exists online. Therefore, you need to have a
certain degree of computer literacy. Having good
knowledge of social technology will enhance your services
and ensure you are keeping up to date with the latest social
trends and developments.
It kind of goes without saying that if you’re going to be
representing a company and engaging with their customers,
then you will need to have strong communication skills.
Companies tend not to want to hire people with no
personality to act on behalf of their brand. It doesn’t
resonate well with them, or their audiences.
I’ve touched on this a few times – social media is very fast-
paced. Imagine if one of your social assignments was
largely focused on customer service and you didn’t respond
to customer complaints or queries for weeks. People online
want rapid responses. Being able to fulfil these needs can
stand your client (and you!) in good stead.
To become a social media manager in a freelance capacity,
you have to be a self-starter. You should be willing to go the
extra mile and take a few financial risks along the way. If
you don’t land a job that pays enough in one month, how
will this affect you?
A great social media manager must be able to effectively
carry out a wide range of tasks. I outline a few of the most
common activities here in this article.
You should always be very well organised when delivering
social media management services. I use all kinds of
traditional tools like calenders, white boards and task lists
to keep myself organised. I also use many online
organisational tools, such as: Thunderbird for accessing all
my email accounts in one place, Dropbox to easily share
documents with clients and bookmarks to keep track of all
the websites I frequently visit.
Being able to think campaigns through before they happen
and sometimes thinking outside the box when needed, are
great assets to have as a social media manager. Clients
tend to want to know how you will do something before
letting you do it, so being able to present a clear and
concise strategy is essential.
Every good social media manager is a great writer. Writing
forms the foundations of many aspects of online marketing,
be it creating ads, writing blogs , engaging with customers,
scripting sales copy or writing press releases.
Pretty much all social media platforms provide the
functionality to customise the interface and incorporate your
own branding. If you are sharp with Photoshop (or similar
design software), then you are in a good position to offer
these services as part of your social media package. [I wrote
a guest post on SmartInsights about “Improving your Social
Media campaigns using Graphic Design“] Similarly, creating
content such as infographics, banners or images is standard
practise for a social media manager.
Every social media manager should have sound knowledge
of advertising. Be it Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising or
banner advertising, you should know the ins and outs of
each discipline and understand how to optimise each
Public relations is closely tied to social media marketing, in
the sense that both involve managing the spread of
information between a business and the public. You may
start out not needing to have a deep knowledge of PR, as it
is typically managed by larger brands who have an interest
in persuading stakeholders, investors or the public to
maintain a certain point of view.
Everything in marketing should be measured. You should
periodically measure and analyse your social marketing
performance and produce reports to your clients to
demonstrate your value.
Understanding how social media affects search engine
optimisation will ultimately improve campaign performance.
In 2012, there was an average of 5,134,000,000 searches on
Google every day. If you think SEO doesn’t matter to your
social activities, think again.
Even though you generally won’t be involved in traditional
marketing practises while undertaking a social media
management role, you should understand how both forms of
marketing affect each other and how each can be best
leveraged to complement the other.
This will probably be the least used of your wider skills, but
nevertheless it can assist you in your social marketing
positions. I’ve had a few clients that required presentations
or demonstration videos to be edited before being used
within their social media campaigns. I’m for sure no expert,
but having a reasonable level of knowledge in using
Windows Movie Maker (or similar video editing software)
can turn that video file straight from the camera into a
beautiful, YouTube-ready video.
Even if you possess all the necessary skills to become a
social media manager, there is still scope to improve your
services by using different social tools and software.
