A New Year – A New Attitude – Beat Redundancy Blues

Hi Everyone

By now you should have written your list of all the things you need to do with the appropriate dates, during the first two weeks of the new year.  If you haven’t, do it now.

In fact, it is best to write down all of the key dates of the things that you need to do for the entire month of January.  So if you haven’t done this, do it now.  You must allocate a timescale for each of the tasks you want to achieve and tick off each one as you do them, with a note of the outcome.  This will give you a fantastic sense of achievement and help to maintain your motivation.

You then need to ensure you keep the momentum going throughout the year by doing the same for each month.  If you don’t complete something within a timescale you have given yourself, don’t worry it takes practice to get it right.  Carry it forward to the next day or month or week.  Make sure you re-assess your priorities on an ongoing basis.

Preparation and time management will be key to your success when it comes to job hunting in 2012.

Remember to factor in time for relaxation with family, friends or ‘me’ time.

Although it is difficult to deal with the emotional affects of redundancy, is it essential that you leave all the bitterness, resentment, upset and anger behind you and focus on the new opportunities that 2012 will bring.

In order to move forward in your life with positivity, make a list of all the negative emotions that you are feeling, talk to family and friends, get it all out.  Then either throw the list away, as if throwing away those negative feelings or keep it in a diary and forget about it.  If you chose the latter option, you will be able to look back at the list in a years time and see how much your life has improved and changed for the better.  This will boost your confidence and self-esteem and give you something to look forward to.

Thinking positively is easier said than done but if you surround yourself with people who believe in you and your abilities, who want to help you to achieve your goals and who believe anything is possible, then the world is your oyster.

I believe things happen for a reason.  If you don’t get a specific job, it’s because it wasn’t right for you.  Focus on your dreams, your goals and your aspirations, this is your time to accomplish them.  You have been given this golden opportunity to take stock of your life and change it for the better.  Don’t let it go to waste.

I believe in you.

Stay positive.

About Quirky Books

Published Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide and Asexual Perspectives 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book.
