Your wisdom and advice will comfort another person. Reassure them and guide them gently.
We often wonder how successful people get to become so successful. In reality, the secret is much simpler than you know - go where the opportunities are. Many people want to be successful, but they don't want to make an effort to achieve it. If they had simply made sure that they were there, where the action is, they would have increased their likelihood of success to a very high degree. They say that you've got to be in it to win it. It's the same with being in the right place at the right time. If you don't show up, if you don't attend, how can you take advantage of what is on offer?
Don't just keep a To Do list, keep a list of things you have completed; a Done list. It's a great way to boost your own self-esteem and excellent evidence to show your boss when you need to demonstrate how effective you are.
