“Mondays are the start of the work week which offers new beginnings 52 times a year!”
Not everywhere and for everyone, and not always.
In Russia, the days from October 30 to November 7 were declared non-working in order to prevent the deterioration of the situation with COVID-19. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that these days should be paid by employers in full. But we will see.
I received a no-reply email from Andrew Seaman, an editor at LinkedIn News, with a question:
What’s your advice for people making a shift right now — whether it’s landing a new job or making a career pivot? What’s the best advice you’ve received when it comes to making a job move?
Here are my thoughts.
For 15 long years in my previous marriage, I dreamed of divorce. I waited and waited for the right moment. But there were always circumstances and obstacles. At some point, I realized that this was never going to be the right time, and I just filed for divorce.
If you think that marriage and work have nothing in common, you are wrong. They are both an important part of our lives.
We often sense that something is wrong. We can even understand that it would be nice to change jobs. But we don’t do that. Once again, we’re waiting for the perfect moment. And to be honest, it’s scary. Right?
Many years ago, in the pre-Internet era, I made my own outfits. I did it myself and regularly. I sewed on my mother’s hand-held sew machine, without special knowledge and elementary “zigzag”-function. With the help of creativity and imagination, I came up with how to put the parts together in a wearable product. Then, many years ago, I needed clothes and a little stand out (from the crowd). Although, who do I want to deceive?.. I wanted to stand out a lot.
