It’s that time of year again! Students everywhere are nestled in the books for midterm season, and the holiday hustle and bustle is just around the corner. Of course, in order to make it to the holidays we all have a lot of work to do, and some of us just might be working throughout them too! If your job is anything like PR, you never know when you’ll be called in for duty! Especially in crisis management, communication specialists have to be on the clock 24/7, ready to respond into action whenever needed.
For some of us the workload is piling high, while others might be getting into crunch time for year-end deadlines. It’s always important to keep in mind that life carries on past work and school. I thought it would be helpful to share with everyone motivating messages to help us stay on track as the season gets busier. I’ve also included some of the gorgeous scenery I’ve captured in the big city over the last few weeks.
- One of my favorite quotes of all-time. I’ve always said from the get-go that I want to make sure I end up in a career that makes me happy. I’ve seen too many people fall in and out of love with their careers, ultimately compromising their happiness. Make sure you’re doing something that makes you happy.
- Remember that you can separate career and home life. It is important to have balance between the two. Maintaining the first point, find a job that can complement your life instead of compromising your life.
- If you aren’t satisfied in your career choice, be daring enough to change it. Too often we get caught up in what feels natural and safe. Sometimes it’s good to step outside the box and take a risk. You never know when you might be rewarded for the chances you take.
- Search for something that makes you happy, and when you stumble across it, pursue it. So much can be learned from finding joy in the little things. If you happen to find something that makes you happy, take the leap to explore it further!
