I came across this recently, aimed at those over 50 who are looking for a job. Briefly the advice is – think strategically about your career, do your research, and hustle like a millennial. The article is US oriented, so some of the websites may be of limited use (though still worth exploring).
Just don’t do a Yosser Hughes (from Boys from the Black Stuff) https://youtu.be/R0bHvu3y0WA – it rarely works.
Living life out of balance – at a frantic pace — comes with a price. Not only for those people experiencing the imbalance, but also for their friends, families and loved ones, and the companies they work for. And the schools, charities and other organisations missing out on volunteers.
Did you know that companies lose hundreds of pounds per person every year due to work place stress? Did you know that 80% of people feel stress on the job and that stress is the number 1 health problem? Did you know that prolonged stress leads to both physical and mental symptoms? And global studies indicate that 70% of workers do not feel they have good work-life balance.
Frantic, chaotic, hectic lifestyles not only come at the cost of the joy we find in life, but also create a feeling of loss of control, while negatively impacting everyone and everything around us. And it makes us perform less well at work, making us more frantic still!
Make 2019 different and choose to move towards balance, so instead of paying the ‘price’, you can reap the ‘reward’.
