As Omar Khayyam says “time is passing underneath our feet”. In no time you have left school, started college and next thing you know, you are already employed at a well-known company set to rise quickly to the top and earning comfortably. At this juncture what is most important to you, is time. It is now up to you to save the most wanted-“time”, as your services are valued not at the hours you work but the quality of results you put out. It doesn’t matter if you spent an hour or a minute coming up with a new marketing strategy; in that, no one will care for excuses and if it takes you an hour to get to the office, it will not be relevant in measuring the success of your outputs either. Due to these reasons most smart executives tend to rent or buy a city apartment and move closer to their work places.
Planning the move
As an important executive in a multinational company you must have an idea of what a plan is. Same as you plan a product launch or a financial report, plan the move as well. First, you may have to get rid of all the telling stuff from back at your campus dorm room or so. To think and act like the successful executive you are, you need to take that turn in your life. If you plan to purchase all new stuff, to match the new position and the new accommodation, so be it, and most probably it will be for the best.
Choosing what and where
Study the atmosphere first. For accommodation, choose a place which you can afford, obviously, but do not skim on it. Given the positive path planned for you, it may be that you are able to afford a slightly higher mortgage rate. Make sure you have a commute that is time-saving if not walking distance to the office. To save time, do not bother with handling building services such as monthly rental payment and cleaning the apartment, you can work smarter and find a body who does all that for you. You may search in the internet and find a provider who renders an efficient service. For example, proactivefm.com.au is known to be chosen by many. The modern world is full of time-saving ideas such as building service concierges, online shopping for food, clothingand so much more. You have to be smart enough to use it for your own comfort.
Never stop learning
One thing that can give you an edge in where you are, is learning, college may have aged you in ten more years than what you really are, but do not stop learning after you graduate with an undergraduate degree. If you are planning to move in the management pathway, an MBA will suit you. However to be more knowledgeable about newer systems, procedures and materials in areas such as engineering or medicine, you may want to follow a masters in that specific area as well. An MPhil can give you invaluable research experience and if you hope to become an academic, will be the best way to go.
All in all, it is time to say good bye to the fun-filled college time and get serious about the future. Start today to get ready for that and you will achieve success.
