7 ways to find your passion

7 ways to find your passion

I’m passionate about dancing. I’m passionate about traveling and the list goes on. How many of you have been advised and told: “ Follow your Passion”!  Well, passion is the energy that keeps us going and brings in excitement. You may be hardworking and working with complete commitment. But the result can be defined if you have clarity in what you are doing. As a kid, do you remember how you would just do things? Either by force or out of curiosity, you would learn things. But have never thought about the relative merits of doing one thing versus another.If you are somewhere clueless about what to do in life, here are 7 ways to find the passion that makes you feel alive:1. Breathe EasyYou need to get off your treadmill for a while to reflect and understand your needs and love for something. Running in the direction where the whole world is running, isn’t going to fetch you a fortune. Take some days off, go on a vacation, take a rest, and in those moments of silence become more aware of what inspires you.2. Dive yourself into reading /researchDig a little deeper into what you love. Research about your hobbies, read some books, watch some shows, network with a few good people around you and realize what lights you up or what feels like active meditation. This legwork will start to give you ideas to follow your passion3. Build the right perspectiveIt is rightly said that “There are always flowers for those who want to see them”. You are facing health issues and you visit a Physiotherapist with a mindset that your problem is incurable. Nobody has got the result in such a case. With this thought process, you are unlikely to recover. Hence, unblock the little nudges and choose the perspective that you can do what you live in your life.4. Jot down your strengths and weaknessesStrengths and weaknesses are a part of being self-aware. Knowing them at the right time can help you focus on developing your strategy. But certain traits pop up when you step out of your comfort zone. Make a list of the achievements that mattered till now and create a win-win situation for all5. Take the freedom to exploreWatching inspirational movies or talking to your mentors, will dawn you with something definite that has been worthwhile all this time. Look beyond the ingredients you already have, take the freedom to explore new opportunities for your career with the multiple ingredients you own6. Spot the difference between a hobby and a profitable businessWith the exploration process, you might fall head over heels in love with something that brings a spark inside you. It might happen that you would love what you do, but the catch here is you need to love the business part too. You need to ask “ Who would benefit and pay for this?”While you enjoy doing certain things, you need to get realistic to turn it into your career.7. Bid FarewellYou find something new when you bid farewell to the old. Find the new version of yourself and take risks in life to know your passion.To Sum Up!These might be outlandish at first, but if you spend a few weeks doing this kind of research and being open to what you learn, you’ll likely find that your passion’s been staring you in the face this whole time. “Don’t worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Howard Thurman

8 Essential Leadership qualities a good team leader must have

What according to you is Leadership?According to John Maxwell, 'Leadership is influence - nothing more, nothing less.'According to John Quincy Adams, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.Well, becoming a good leader is not everyone’s piece of cake. With various definitions on Google about Leadership, what we believe is that a good leader  helps in setting clear goals and lets people find their paths, thus empowering people to act on their expertise. You can always encourage your team members to come up with unique ideas and ask them to implement them.Not every person is a born leader and the best part is that leadership qualities can be learned:IntegrityPeople want to work in an organization where they know that if their leader acts with integrity and is ethical, that leader will treat them right and do what’s best for the business. Furthermore, being honest is also an important leadership quality. When leaders show honesty with employees, the trust is reciprocated and the organization starts operating with integrity.VisionSet a practical vision and targets for your company. Consider SMART goals.  A good leader should express and persuade a vision of abundance with an upbeat future, successful outcomes, and a legacy that people care about. Hence, they should also believe in this vision before implementing the decisions.Critical Thinking abilitiesThinking 5 steps ahead or anticipating threats or change before even the disaster or pandemic strikes, is a key element to being a good leader. It’s important to have a clear understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the team and the company to take it in the right directionSelf-awareness & personal developmentEffective leaders are those who focus on developing their emotional intelligence. Such leaders are more adaptive, resilient, and accept feedback from others quite easily. They are good and patient listeners. Accept that things can and will go wrong. This anticipation will help you respond thoughtfully and realistically, making situations easier.Team growth opportunitiesKey elements of good leadership include delegating, coaching, and mentoring. Recruiting a diversified team will give the members leverage to learn new tools, trust each other and explore more with the existing structure. Show empathy and strength as a good leaderCross-cultural communication or NetworkingFirstly, to be able to communicate and understand different perspectives of people around and in business, it's pivotal to network. Secondly, while you communicate, embrace enthusiasm, confidence, inspiration, and excitement. Thirdly, optimistic leaders show that they believe their organization is working toward a better future. They should be able to communicate clearly and with authority.Responsibility & AccountabilitySelf-reflection is integral for effective leadership. At regular intervals, you need to keep diagnosing what your weaknesses and challenges are before someone else tells you. Then you're in an amazing position.Adaptability & FlexibilityBeing a good leader means being adaptable and nimble when the situation calls for it. In life, you will encounter minor roadblocks or large obstacles. There are fewer chances of things going according to the plan You will need to be prepared to stop, reassess, and determine a new course of action. For Instance, Covid is the best example.

7 benefits of a virtual internship

Undergoing a virtual internship is not a compulsion but beneficial to students. Especially in the times of COVID when schools/ colleges are not functional in real; you can take this opportunity and take a virtual internship. If the school was running as normal then students would not be able to take up any kind of internship. But, if time permits then you must try for it. The internship has many benefits and it will help you in the future when you are hunting for a job. Moreover, you will gain independence. Isn’t that exciting? Having to spend money of your own! It will not only excite you but also satisfy you. Why don’t you note down the 7 amazing benefits of a virtual internship?Flexible timing: when you are a virtual intern it means that you are enjoying the flexibility of time. Most of the students who are not virtual interns face a lot of clashes between class and work. With a virtual internship, that problem is solved. However, if you are a virtual intern then you will not face such problems. You are supposed to deliver a certain number of hours or targeted work and call for a day.Communication skill: when you are working virtually, you will have to master the art of communication. The face-to-face working environment is quite different where you can express it through your words or facial expressions. But working remotely means you have to make someone understand your problems or concern through words. Hence, slowly you will learn the art of putting words so correctly that you will be able to convince someone.Widen your connection: There is no doubt that internships help in building connections. You will come in contact with people from different backgrounds which will help in building a larger network. Depending upon how sincerely you take your role, these people can help you in establishing your role in the same industry or help you in the future.Gearing up for the future: The experience of working remotely is different from the in-house. Here you have to take care of your work yourself. Telecommunication and e-mails are the best ways you will deliver your work. Technological experience will help you in the future also when you take up a job as an in-house employee. Moreover, you will mostly finish your tasks without intimation because you are used to doing so. Also, you know how to deal with technical issues if any.Develop work pattern: your work pattern is quite flexible but you are responsible to deliver your work on time. You will have virtual meetings, meet deadlines, or prepare reports in a said time. Therefore you will know how to develop a work pattern where you can learn time management, patience, accountability, and resourcefulness.Know your interest: Sometimes school or college-going students don’t know what they want to do in the future. Do you like working from home or do you like going to the field? You will find answers to this question and many more as you will do an internship. Therefore, a virtual internship will help you in discovering yourself. Mind it, it’s not a bad deal.Apply what you learn: virtual internship will let you learn many things. And, the best part is that you will apply most of your employability in the future. Your skills, qualities, communication, teamwork, and many other factors will matter when you go to work elsewhere. Most important thing is that you will put up your virtual internship record in your resume. It will give you more advantages than you may have thought of.The Collegebol platform encourages students to take up internships so that they will get enough exposure at a young age. It is not easy to identify your passion and interest. Only such internships will help you sail through such dilemmas. We wish all the prospective graduates good luck in their journey.

What is the difference between attitude and aptitude?

Essentially attitude and aptitude both are important for individual success. However, attitude and aptitude both are different. Everyone has often come across both these words in their lifetime but rarely may we have thought of how they are different. Most competitive exams have a section called the aptitude test. Students are judged based on their aptitude for the test. Whereas, in reality when they face an interview; it is the attitude that will determine their eligibility for the job. Let’s figure out the difference between the two and how it matters in daily life.ParametersAttitudeAptitudeDefinitionIt is the way an individual behaves, their belief, and the set of emotions they have theThe capacity of a person to acquire skills in a given time.OriginIt comes through a series of experiencesIt is innate.natureIt may change with time and experiencesIt remains unchanged.measurementIt measures the competency of an individualIt is good or bad, positive or negative.reflectionsIt reflects the intelligence quotient to some extent. However, it is not completely associated with it. It reflects the overall personalityThe Collegebol platform is student-centric therefore we would like to discuss here parameters that are relative to the student. When we speak about attitude and aptitude along with their importance for success; you must know that both are important.A candidate has a higher aptitude and that leads to the highest score in the exam. But, if he/she fails as a person at their workplace, then their aptitude has no value. We see that individuals with better attitudes have a preference. There is an observation that says that most people with a good attitude will go a long way and have chances to acquire a higher position in the workplace.However, we do not mean to say here that aptitude holds no importance. It surely does. An ambitious person will cope with a new environment and new learning. This can only happen with a higher degree of aptitude. Therefore, we can summarize that the right level of aptitude and correct attitude can help you in scaling heights.Attitude and aptitude are just like two sides of a coin. Both need a balance in life.

Challenges faced by authorities in conducting online examinations
Challenges faced by authorities in conducting online examinations
UGC gave guidelines to universities across the country to conduct the final year exam by September end. Looking at the safety parameters we can say that an online exam is the only solution to keep the academics going on.The pandemic has forced people across the world to stay indoors causing the suspension of examinations. To give away the degree to the students it is necessary to conduct online examinations. Vice-chancellors of some universities are finding it tough to hold examinations under the conditions.The only feasible method to conduct exams in circumstances as they are today is through online portals.The biggest challenges organizations faced while conducting online exams are as follows:-Lack of awareness and experience is one of the greatest obstacles in experimenting with online examination management systems.-There is an opinion that students could resort to using unethical means in an online test. They may obtain impersonators who might take the examination on their behalf.-A student may have someone helping him/her from behind the webcam with answers.- They may further make use of smartphones to cheat on their online tests. They may even log in to different web browsers to obtain answers.-There could be many other methods of malpractice that the students might practice such as connecting external storage devices, and even screen sharing.-Both teachers and students are customary to paper-based tests. Hence, this may give them a feeling that they might not be well outfitted to move forward with online examination.-The requirement for last-minute software updates, setbacks due to overloaded systems, and unpredictable internet efficiency might make online assessment difficult to implement.Online examinations will not just mean a shift in the platform for conducting assessments but also create a series of changes in assessment styles. Students who have been used to answering essay type questions and short questions will abruptly feel confined to mostly MCQs. It may become difficult to adjust to answering these types of questions.The experience will give them the spirit to lead in a world that needs them to be innovative in attitude and approach. During this pandemic situation, it would be an enormous task for university authorities to maintain and organize conventional examinations successfully. Their responsibilities might include supporting thousands of students, looking for large numbers of invigilators, and assessing papers for months to get the results out. Revaluation is another task which is a big concern.With the set-up of online examinations, even candidates from remote areas could appear for it.
