Dear International Graduates,

You can hone your skills and bump your income on your 9 to 5 job if you want.

I understand it’s challenging, but it’s not impossible.

I will show you how I doubled my income within 18 months as a graduate working 9 to 5 in Australia

1 — It starts with a desire

Every goal starts with a decision & a genuine desire to make it happen

When there is no desire, there is no passion, no willpower to make it happen. If you can't change your mindset, don’t read on, you will not follow through

You must decide
2 — Identify your strengths

Competence is key.

Employers exchange money for your services. The greater the services you provide, the better your value.

You have to get really good in your field to get more money. You need to be better than average.

So I was wondering about my career and what success means to me... Read more in the thread :) #career #careeradvice #professionaldevelopment #womenintech #womeninstem #womenwhocode #girlswhocode
Sometimes, I like to ponder on what I have been doing in my career and whether I am living the life that I want. I've often been labelled as an ambitious go-getter (in the nicest way, I think!). Some might even consider my career history as a success story.
But for me personally, I don't consider it as a success story. Allow me to explain...

Guiding principles in developmental editing of fiction, from @liminal_pages: 1. It's not your book. Don't take it over or try to rewrite it. Make it the best the author can do. Give appropriate feedback to avoid overwhelming them. What are THEIR goals for the book? #CIEP2021 1/9
2. YOU define your service. What is it called, what does it include, and how many rounds are there? Communicate this clearly to your clients early on. There's no one way to do things; define what you want to provide. 2/9
You might want to make sentence level edits to show how to apply a suggestion you're making, but be careful not to creep into copy-editing. Small changes should still relate to big issues with character, POV, plot, 'showing' for immersion, etc. 3/9

'Leaders Eat Last' by @simonsinek

I had mixed thoughts on this one. I found the overall message on point, even when disagreeing on some observations. Overall, an engaging anthology on leadership.

#TheUnitLibrary #BookClub 🧵
June #professionaldevelopment Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek https://www.goodreads.com/bo
I anticipated reading 'Leaders Eat Last' during this challenge. I enjoyed Sinek's TED talk and his book 'Start with Why' (September's book) was one of the first LPD books I picked up.

"...exceptional organizations all have cultures in which leaders provide cover from above and the people on the ground look out for each other." p9

‘Mindset: Changing the Way You Think to Fulfil Your Potential’ by Dr Carol Dweck

The “right attitude” you need along with “the right place, right time, right uniform...”

“I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, the successes and the failures...I divide the world into the learners and the non learners.” ~ Benjamin Barber https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Barber?wprov=sfti1
As Army leaders, we are charged with subordinate development. Of all the challenges to this outcome, maybe the most significant is the idea that some Soldiers are incapable of being developed.

‘Success through Failure: the Paradox of Design’ by Henry Petroski

A little perspective for those who think they have reached the top.

#TheUnitLibrary #BookClub 🧵
April #professionaldevelopment
History is often viewed as a series of conquests and successes resulting in a modern humans sitting at the paramount of civilization. Petroski turns this on it's head through an analysis of design and engineering failures that stimulated invention and innovation.
“Successful tests are unremarkable... Failures are remarkable. The failures always teach us more than the successes about the design of things.”

We know from @SashaShillcutt & @JulieSilverMD’s @NEJM paper, that social media has become an important avenue for women physicians to gather, providing #WomeninMedicine new avenues to share information & experiences:

We wanted to better understand the #womenincardiology Twitter network – not just how many tweets, but more *how* the network is being used & if it is *useful*

I was born in the 1980s, in the suburbs of Divinopolis, a small city in the Minas Gerais state, 🇧🇷 (right in the middle of the country, so, no beaches there). I’m the oldest of 4 children. I was a happy child who could play in the streets and climb trees.
#IWS #IWSvoices
I also watched a lot of 📺and this helped to develop my passion for science. One of my favourite shows was Beakman’s World. I wanted to be a scientist like him. But I had never met any scientist. I wasn’t even sure if this profession really existed in 🇧🇷.

My passion for biology started in high school, because of one very enthusiastic teacher. I’ll never forget my first lab class and she saying: “look at those mitochondria, how beautiful they are!” I decided that I’d be a biologist.

Burnout. It’s usually not due to some big thing.

Instead, lots of little things fill the plate till it overflows.

EOY - time for an audit/edit:

➡️What to keep doing

🛑What to stop doing

▶️What to start doing

#medtwitter #WomenInMedicine
Do you already do this?
Yesterday, I started my lists for my Start/Stop/Continue audit.

Like many on #medtwitter, I have lots of lists.

I consider personal, work, community, family, etc

AND break each of those down again and again until I’m really looking closely 🔍
For ex, big items on my “work” list:

👩‍⚕️ clinical
👩‍🏫 academic
👩🏼‍💼 industry
🎤 speaking
💻 virtual courses/Rx Series
📊 consulting/BOD
📚 royalties
🏖 TransforMD

What to start/stop/continue? Have to break each down further...

#WomenInMedicine who can relate?

Real privilege getting to share our research on #OER and personalization with the #GoOpen community this morning. (Thanks for having me!) Figured I'd share some our key learning points here... 1/ #curriculum #instructionalmaterials
First off, shout out to the amazing leaders in the #GoOpen community. This work isn't about "free" materials, these folks are digging deep to engage teachers in curriculum, flex to meet unique needs, support effective instruction, and build a community. Super cool. 2/
We started the convo with some definition... what did I mean when using terms like "curriculum" "#OER" and "personalization"? Here was @LearningAccel starting point, curious how others agree/disagree. 3/

We're LIVE! with @GaringerAngela & @cdsmeaton for a #TeVE about "Moving from Accountability to Assurance". Join us for an opportunity to learn, grow and participate in an exchange. #exchangetochange Join us here: bit.ly/2omYKg7 #bringpeopletogether #TeVirtualEvents Image
@GaringerAngela @cdsmeaton Here's a sneak peek at what we will be discussing this morning. #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #bringpeopletogether #buildingtrust #changemanagement Image
@GaringerAngela @cdsmeaton To engage children you also need to engage their parents. If we don’t ask parents, we’re only getting a response from staff. You truly need the diversity of opinion with parents AND staff. @cdsmeaton #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #bringpeopletogether

A few considerations about getting paid to speak for #medtwitter, #womeninmedicine, and #SoMeDocs in response to recent thread from @arghavan_salles.

1/
Sometimes speaking and earning those lines on your CV are actually part of your job. In that case, you should have a clear understanding about protected time from your clinical/academic responsibilities.

2/
Also, depending on your institution and possibly your topic, you might be limited in your ability to accept external payment for speaking, or it might be owed to your department. Do your homework!

I appreciate folks recommending their fav public intellectuals to me. I looked at so many websites yesterday & it’s really helpful. So as a thank you, here is a thread for transparency on what I’m doing here.
My original tweet said that I was looking for models & mentors. That language is very purposeful. I recognize, particularly at this point in my career, that the people I want to learn from are excessively busy & in demand.
Looking for models means finding people who appear to be doing the kind of work you want to do (or living the kind of life you want to live) & learning as much as you can about how they did it.
