As we start wrapping up 2017, I can’t help but think of what I want to start accomplishing in 2018. The first thing that comes to mind is balance▫️Balance in everything that I do, whether it be my work/life schedule, the way I juggle between different work obligations, taking care of myself vs taking care of others, and even something as basic as my diet ▫️I tend to go to extremes and even though I’ve been able to accomplish what I’ve wanted, it’s been at an unsustainable rate and I feel myself burning out way more frequently ▫️
So, here’s to a healthier, happier soon-to-be 2018 and any advice/tips on how to achieve that balance would be greatly appreciated! 🙌🏼
What does it mean to be global minded? My definition of a global minded person is someone who behaves as if they are a citizen of the world as well as a citizen of their home country.
Start building your “global muscles” 💪 today with these experiments:
1️⃣ Learn about our world. How many countries are there on earth? Which are in the top 20 by population? (Most people know The top three or China, India and the USA, but many people don’t know Indonesia is fourth and Brazil is fifth.) which have the highest Goss Domestic Product (GDP), highest exports, the largest consumer markets? With over 20 million articles in nearly 300 languages, Wikipedia.orc is a terrific source of this information. 👩💻
2️⃣Follow global business news daily. If you want to be a global mind a business person you need to know what’s going on in the global business world. Find several sources of business news and make it part of your daily routine to review what’s going on globally.🌎
3️⃣Study another language.🗣Please note that I didn’t say to master another language. Just learn how to count to 10, say hello and goodbye, and other polite phrases. Please notice I didn’t say to learn English! Mandarin and Spanish are commonly spoken languages as well. Learn a variety of languages. But the global business language is currently English, so if you want to be a good business person these days you’ve just got to study English. Sorry about that!
4️⃣Get to know people from other countries. With over 1 billion people on Facebook, Twitter and other social media’s you can surely find people from other countries who speak your language. Also, there are foreigners in every country. Reach out and make live, friends too.
5️⃣Spend Time with your sub ordinate. If they’re too much more global minded than you then you can learn from them. Ask about their experiences and perspectives and the listen with great interest.
