Awesome FREE Development Resources

Developing your personal and professional skills are fundamental to surviving and thriving at work.  You might disagree with me here, but the way I see it, if you don’t continue to raise your “standard” it’s logical to assume you’ll remain where you are.

Make sense?

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves – Viktor E Frankl

The fact is that personal development stretches our capabilities.  It expands our outlook to see things that were previously outside our view.  It gives us confidence in ourselves and our abilities.  It removes the ceiling on what we previously assumed was our limits, so we can view exactly what we’re able to achieve.

The day we ranked #1 in Google

The day we ranked #1 in Google:

Okay, so this morning I received this text message from my pal Greg (of eagle & chicken fame):

Number one ranked in Google, Celebration, Survive at Work, your one stop resource for work skills, work resources, work tools and work motivation. Hate work? Want promotion? Survive at work will help you thrive at work.

Yes it’s true… SurviveAtWork.com is now ranked first on Google!

That’s number 1 out of the 218,000,000 results which come up when you search for survive at work.

My mind is blown.  Two hundred and eighteen MILLION results… and we’re number 1!

Let me hear you say WOOHOO!!!

It was only back in September that we were celebrating being number 1 on Bing.  Back then, you’ll recall that number 1 on Google was an aspiration… albeit a seemingly unobtainable one.  Since then, we’ve gradually crawled up the rankings, consistently being kept from the top few slots by a few results that appeared to be anchored there, due to the fact they’re “big boy” sites like Life Hacker and Amazon.

Can you believe it’s nearly Monday again?  What kind of work week did you guys have last week?

Last week, I was fortunate enough to spend some time in some lovely places and meet some wonderfully interesting & inspirational people (such as Anna Bastek).  Plus, a shetland pony wearing a tartan blanket randomly walked past my living room window on Friday afternoon.  All in all, quite awesome 🙂

But the great thing is that, even if it had been an absolute nightmare of the week, today’s the start of a brand new one.  New territory to be explored and a new canvass just waiting for us to make our impression!  I’m so excited that it’s a little scary, lol.
