Dave's Diary: The F Word - The Key To Confidence

Self Awareness

I was not a confident person in high school. Sure, I did fine in my classes, but most of the time that didn't seem very important. Like most people, I was more worried about how other people perceived me, particularly those mysterious and intimidating members of the opposite gender. Today, I'm a more confident person. When and how did that transformation happen?

Dave's Diary: When You're Wrong, You're Right

CSI Blog

It's not what you say that matters, but how you say it. You could be making something up on the spot, and be totally wrong on whatever it is you're talking about, but if you appear confident in what you're saying, you're more likely to be seen as right.

What exactly is confidence, and how do we get more of it?

Dave's Diary: The True Cost of Overtime - Fires & Addicts

Life Experience

When it comes to careers, we act like addicts - in spite of clear evidence that working too many hours is damaging us, we continue to do it because of perceived short term reward. It's time for a change.

Dave's Diary: Emotions, Content, and Process in Careers

Dave's Diary

Emotions are one of the most distinctive, primal, and ubiquitous features of human life. Yet, despite their important role in career development and decision making, they can be one of the most frequently overlooked issues in career advising/counselling. Why?

Dave's Diary: The Happiness of Subtraction

Dave's Diary

Money, material possessions, a great job, time, even love... I would argue that adding any of these to your life is not the key to happiness.  No, adding anything is not the way to go. Instead, let's think about subtraction.

Dave's Diary: Stubborn or Persistent? A Stark Difference

Life Experience

Like most things, persistence is something of a double-edged sword: it can be either a huge strength when applied in a constructive direction, or an outright flaw when clung to too tightly in situations that call for more flexibility. Like Ned Stark's honour, it can earn you respect and carry you to high places, but it can just as quickly get you into serious trouble.

Dave's Diary: Procrastination Problems? Maybe Not...

CSI Blog

If you're human, you'll admit to having procrastinated about something. If you're an honest human, you'll admit to having procrastinated about a lot of things. I'll even go out on a limb and say that you've often put some salt in that wound and felt guilty about your procrastination. So what are you going to do about it?

Dave's Diary: A Journey Through Movember

Fundraising

Movember. How else could you describe the process of growing and caring for a moustache for an entire month, other than by calling it a "hairy-ing" experience? (I just couldn't help it, sorry!) I had heard about other people getting weird looks and even nasty remarks about their moustaches before (you'll be glad to know I didn't get any nasty remarks, though of weird looks there were plenty). I had prepared myself for these things. However, it's what I didn't expect that I found to be most noteworthy.
