There comes a time in our life when we get caught in the middle of something big which is about to happen..
We can see clearly where we are heading but there are six/seven more steps which we have to climb before reaching it..
It’s a lot of hard work and all we want to do is just stop to rest little bit.. 2 days of procrastination won’t harm that much right?
This mid-something-big-about-to-happen crisis is what I am going to talk about today. When I was at that stage, I felt like nothing will matter till I spend at least 3 years working on gaining experience. That feeling of ‘spending certain time at a particular stage to fulfil our role’
You know what? I was wrong!
We see a ladder of success with many steps but only few out of those are actual steps. Rest are imaginary!
I don’t know why our traditional teachers taught us this? It’s completely possible to be successful after just taking one or two steps.
Why realise it late and then regret in old age??
Do following thinking when you are stuck at mid-something-big-about-to-happen crisis:
- Analyse where you are standing right now.
- Think about different ways to reach where you want to be.
- Be daring enough to challenge yourself with tasks which you feel you might not be able to do yet.
- Show transparency when discussing your goals & actual outcomes.
- Remember there are bigger threats to our human kind than the issues that you are facing so be strong! Don’t let one failure bring you down.
- Try to pretend to be a shield which can take criticism without losing self confidence.
Come out of the bubble you live in.. as it’s only out of comfort zone where we actually start living!
Do you often wonder what will happen to your facebook account when you will die?
Mark has thought about that too. Your online after life will continue to go on if you choose someone trustworthy to manage your social media account. Previously when anyone passed away, users could ask Facebook to convert the social media account into a memorial page but now Facebook has put its users in partial control of what happens to their accounts after they pass away. Facebook users have been given a choice to decide from, whether they want their account to be deleted after death or use the “Legacy Contact” option to choose someone to manage their account.
This option is great but it also comes with some restrictions as the legacy contact won’t be able to post new status or even edit what the deceased already posted, the private conversation/messages will also remain under lock down. However the legacy contact will be able to change profile pictures and download – archive your photos, posts and profile information. They will login from their own personal accounts on behalf of the deceased.
Legacy contact can be designated by going into, Settings, then Security, click Legacy Contact at the bottom of the page. Once there and after editing the pre-filled message, sent to the contact telling them that you’ve chosen him/her to inherit your Facebook account after your death. However you can only choose one person as a legacy contact so choose wisely.
For the time being this option is only available in the US. Let’s see when this will roll in other countries as well.
