Things You Must Do After You Retire

Posted on by Rhys Murray

Retiring is something we often as senior working people look forward to but when it comes to retirement and many people tend to not really know what to do with their life after a period of few months after their retirement. Best way to learn more thing to do is to make a retirement plan. Here are a few things that you should definitely add to your retirement plans.

Family and friends

For any working person there would have always been a time where, one would not have had enough time to hang out with their friends or visit family relatives. Well, everyone is growing old and after you retire, you would want to visit them and make up for the lost time that you were busy working.

Make a health plan

Let’s face it, by the time we retire we will all be a little old and it is not just for a fact that we know we won’t get any younger. So, chances are quite high our health will deteriorate as time goes. Thus, it is really important that we make sure we have a full medical examination and at least once a year.

You could find a independent medical assessments at most hospitals or clinics so it won’t be hard to figure it out.

Write a book or blog

A man, who retires, normally retires with a lot of experience behind him. It is no use keeping all those experience to him. The best thing you can do is to share that experience in the form of a book or a blog that you can start. It can be about anything that interests you.

You could even come forward as a mentor to young people from college who are looking to come in life. Guiding the young generation is something that you will have to definitely be proud to be able to do.

The Travel

It is no secret that all of us wanted to travel to amazing places but we didn’t have enough time and money to do so. The period after retirement is just the perfect time for you to do all these. You have enough of money and so much free time with you.

Start a business

Your career is over but that does not mean you can’t still work. Take all your experience start a new business maybe even a consultancy firm in the field of your experience. It doesn’t have to be something that big you could even just take it slow as a part time job and then slowly expand and grow in to profit making business. Not to forget you have plenty of contacts in the respective field as well.

Facing The Fear: How To Overcome Our Phobias And Function In Society

Posted on by Rhys Murray

All of us have something we are afraid of: spiders, heights, and cramped quarters etc. For some, this fear is unfounded and is seemingly irrational. For others, their fear is grounded in a very real incident such as being scared of vehicles after being in or witnessing an accident. Since most of our phobias impact directly in our day to day lives, it’s beneficial to learn how to work through them; otherwise they become a barrier that slows us down. Here are a few ways in which you can overcome your fear and rise above it.

Exposure Therapy – Live it Again and Again

One of the more panic- inducing, yet surprisingly successful, ways of overcoming your fear is to continuously expose yourself to it. For instance, if you fear heights then keep using the elevator or climb the stairs everyday (with a friend of course) and go one floor higher day by day. Make yourself go up on the roof and confront your fear. If you dislike open spaces then force yourself to go to one and stand still for 1 minute, then 2, then 3 and so on. The first time you will probably vomit; the second time you’ll shake. By the third, fourth and fifth time you’ll feel confident enough to explore a bit. After all, the worst thing that can happen is that you’ll die and if it hasn’t happened yet, it probably won’t happen again.

Train Yourself Professionally Physically and Mentally

It might be a good idea to attend a professional training course (6 months or so) that will force you to face your fears. Because this is a structured training environment, you will be among pros that can help you as well as force you to deal with a situation. If you dislike cramped places, a confined space course for mining inspectors can get the ball rolling. If you hate seeing blood, attend a aviation diploma courses or caregiver school.

By facing the fear in a learning environment, you can school and fool your mind into thinking that your fear is just something that you need to train out of. A confined space course will teach you how to handle yourself in a small space; a nursing diploma will expose you to lots of blood and teach you what it can and can’t do. Go here for further information about quality training in aviation.

Attend a Professional Therapy Session

There are other therapeutic ways you can overcome your fears, but if your phobia is grounded in real trauma, you have to go to a therapist who can talk and walk you through overcoming your fear. They too will use exposure as well as mental and physical exercises designed to strengthen you and help you face your fear. The difference is that, unlike a friend, these experts know how and when to push you to try something and when to simply listen. So always try to overcome any fears that are holding you back.

The Advantages Of LMS

Posted on by Rhys Murray

LMS, or Learning Management Systems, can be simply explained as a software capable of managing and keeping track of the progress, documents and other related information to any specific electronic learning course (i.e. eLearning) or electronic training course. Together with the rise of internet facilities since the 1970s, and the rise of smart technologies in the past decade, learning management systems have become an extremely successful method of mass education used by educational facilities as well as workplaces. The advantages of LMS can be summarized as follows:
• Cost-effective – LMS is an efficient method of distributing study materials and courses to a wide audience, and simultaneously also track their information and progress in the learning process. As such, LMS is extremely effective as an educational tool for mass audiences: a large number of students or employees can be educated at once through LMS. This makes learning management systems an extremely cost-effective option due to the ability to cut expenses by mass teaching methods.
• Time-saving – since LMS is catered towards mass audiences, it naturally also is a time-saving option. The reason is because of the flexibility of LMS: courses and learning materials are stored within the software and accessible at any time to the students and educators, thus a number of individuals can access the same or different content, at the same time or at different times. Online learning management systems have the added advantage of being accessible whenever and wherever one is.
• Management of study materials – LMS, as has been explained above, functions as a repository of study materials and courses. Lessons pertaining to many different courses can be stored within the software and accessed by students enrolled under each respective course. The educators simply need to upload their study plans and materials onto the learning management system online – there is no need for classrooms or separate study sessions with the students (unless of course the students wish to clarify their course materials). • Tracking of progress – LMS is also a database of information details pertaining to each and every instructor and student. Student information such as their personal details, individual progress in their respective courses, grades, etc. can be stored within the LMS; similarly, information details pertaining to the instructors such as their details, course information, etc. are also stored. Of course, the management systems can classify the data and make it accessible only to those authorized to do so, thus there are no issues of security or privacy breaches.
• Up-to-date study materials – since the learning management systems do not make use of physical study materials for the most part, problems related to outdated information is not relevant here. As LMS is strictly related to the internet, the best advantage this relationship no doubt offers is the ability to constantly remain up-to-date with the changing and updating information and learning materials.

Basic Education Requirements For A Lawyer

Posted on by Rhys Murray

Lawyers provide clients information on all forms of legal matters. They can also be called attorneys. They can support and defend their client in court. There has to be a considerable measure of trust between the lawyer and his/her client. This is because the client is counting on the lawyer to present his case from a favourable view point in order to minimize any damages incurred.

But to do this, a lawyer has to be competent and responsible enough to understand the client’s needs and to achieve a positive solution for the party he represents. Therefore, he needs an extensive educational background in legal procedure, research and writing. Once you complete your undergraduate degree, you should complete law school and receive a Juris Doctor (J.D.). The state’s bar exam has to be passed by a lawyer for them to continue with their practice.

To apply for a law school, one must graduate from a bachelor’s degree programme. In most instances, you are required to take the Law School Admission Test. There are many branches of law and it is up to you to identify which field you need to pursue. You can research, read, and ask for advice from fellow students or professors. If you have found a field you would like to specialize in, you can think about going for an undergraduate degree in that particular field. For example, if you’re interested in becoming a tax attorney, you can proceed by studying accounting. If your interests lie in the areas of environmental law, you can obtain a major in environmental science.

One of the most important things you should start practising is your reading and speaking skills. You should be able to argue a point clearly with reason. You can try a few methods such as taking a course in English or political science, participate in a debating team etc. This will help you learn about presenting information succinctly to others. Research is important. You should read up on past cases, how they were argued, what evidence was presented etc. You should also learn the exceptions to the law. It is only when you know the word of law unmistakably that you will be able to use it. You could also try courses in CLE Hong Kong.

Attend lectures from veteran lawyers on the field on legal systems, courts of law, HKIAC mediation, educational programmes etc.

A student in law school will have a studying period of about 3 years. The Juris Doctor degree is awarded at the end of completion of the programme. There are many schools of law all over the world and while there is no universal curriculum, their teachings include matters from civil procedure to property law. The students are encouraged to enrol in specialized courses depending on where the students’ interest lie.

Posted on by Rhys Murray

When considering the many factors involved in incorporating and running your own company, many facets, advantageous aspects and obstacles alike, come into play. These may include costs and profits, general financing, human resource management, production or working processes, general administration of the company, amongst others.

Quality control
One of the main significances of a successful company is the quality of services or goods provided. A consumer will choose to return to purchase a good or hire a service from a company that they recognize to be that which provides goods and services of a high quality in general, and a higher quality compared to its competitors.
As such, to enable and facilitate the growth and success of your company, it is of the utmost importance to adhere to a standardized quality control mechanism. For this purpose, one should approach a reputed and well established provider of  trustworthy ISO accreditation services. This will provide your company with the necessary guidelines and requirements to receive the certification, and the company will do so once the criteria is met. This certification will undoubtedly garner your company an edge against its rivals.
Management of finances
No company wishes to suffer the condition of nor reach the point of losses in terms of revenue, and much worse, the prospect of bankruptcy. Therefore, the efficient management of company finances is a crucial factor to the success of your company. Comprehensive annual budgeting, and even bi-annual budgeting, should be conducted, and special emphasis should be placed on supervising the carrying out of these budgetary guidelines by those employed at the company. Simple factors such as minimizing wastage by each employee involved in the production process will impact and improve the overall financial status of your company.
Human resource management
Employees are indubitably one of the most pivotal factors of a company, and hence the sufficient maintenance of employees is necessary. Employee benefits, quality of workplace standards, safety features in the workplace, are examples of such ways in which this maintenance could be achieved.
Employee satisfaction at the workplace is an important factor, as it would be impossible to maintain the workings of the company if its employees are inefficient and receive no incentive to carry out their designated tasks.
Equipment and facilities
Necessary equipment within the company will ensure the smooth working of the company. Regular maintenance and servicing, as well as investing in new and upgraded equipment when required will make certain that your company is managed and is working at its optimum. This will overall impact the production or service process as well as help the employees perform their tasks in the most efficient way.

Why You Should Become An Animal Doctor

Posted on by Rhys Murray

When it comes to careers and jobs, it depends largely on the type of person you are, your experience and your natural ability for it. Of course it is difficult for every single person to work in their dream job considering the number of people far exceed the number of available positions. However, this should not stop you from achieving your goals. Of all the jobs out there, perhaps some of the most rewarding are arguably the medical field and of course working with charities. Where medicine is concerned, this is not applicable to people alone, but animals too. If you have ever considered becoming an animal doctor, here are more reasons as to why you should do it. 

ANIMALS ALL DAY, EVERYDAY!

Sometimes your love for the job stems from something so very simple; in this case, it is the chance to work with animals all day. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to assist them especially as their pain is not something they can express. However, remember that you will not be working only with cuddly creatures such as cats, dogs and rabbits. Snakes and other ‘creepy-crawlies’ are also animals who need medical attention. You could browse through some vet training packages to get your foot in through the door.

EXPANSIVE CAREER

If you are concerned about the job scope and availability of vacancies, relax. There is quite a demand for veterinary surgeons in institutions such as zoos, clinics and animal hospitals to name a few. Furthermore, as more and more people are invested in the health and well-being of animals, vets are experiencing a surge in the number of animals that are being brought to them on a daily basis. It no longer needs to be a purebred dog only; strays are welcome too. 

PAY

Of course at the end of the day, being able to pay off your bills comfortably is also important. How great would it be, to be able to not only work in this field but also make a good living out of it? This is a job that will definitely pay you well which means you need not worry about how you can live. You could even pay off your vet training packages if you did them on a loan. If you are a new entrant, be prepared to start low; this is the case with most fields anyway so be patient.

ABILITY TO HELP

Of all the rewarding feelings in the world, the ability to help is probably one that ranks up there. Although the above are all important to help you feel fulfilled in what you do, at the end of the day this should be your biggest trigger. The ability to help another be it a human or an animal is something that is truly to be admired, and commended.
