A lot of us struggle to be productive at work. Many times, we think, “4 more hours to go” during our shift. We see our profession as an obligation to life. As I explain in the topic: Work: what is it for, work cannot be separated from life.

Any moment in our life is an opportunity to grow. And so are the moments we work. We can use these 40 hours (or more) per week to get better and move forward in the journey of life.

In this topic (Business), I talk of certain techniques. These are meant to help you in two directions. First, they can make you more productive at work. At the same time, you can use these methods to go forward in the journey of life.

This topic is part of the WORK pillar. It is a natural consequence of the topic “Work: what is it for”.

Here, I have planned to write the following posts:

  • Effectiveness vs efficiency
  • Staying efficient: The 80/20 rule
  • Smart multitasking
  • Marketing 4.0: get a glimpse
  • Business modeling: a must to know
  • The magic of setting deadlines
  • Find your competitive advantage
  • Flow and Grit: the power of passion
  • The thin red line
  • Climb the correct ladder
  • The importance of time pocket
  • Plan the night before
  • Begin from the end

  • First things first
  • The fun of ambidexterity
  • Business planning: a takeaway

I plan to publish one new article every first Sunday of the month at 10 am UTC.

Until then, stay tuned. And don’t forget: Life is all Around. Use your profession to test it.

Although part of our work, deadlines scare a lot of people. Either it is for the last project in your company or a writing assignment for your school, deadlines can cause a lot of stress. Yet, with a specific approach, setting deadlines can become a powerful tool.

It is no secret that finding your competitive advantage can propel your success in your professional career. However, just like with business, you can have a competitive advantage in other areas of life too. This article shares three techniques to find your competitive advantage, whether professional or not. 

Looking for work: everyone comes through this phase in life. It can be stressful but it is also an opportunity to make some changes and grow. After all, you can use everything for your growth. The choice you make for your next job or career can make the process of growth easier or more difficult.
