How's it going? How are you holding up? This week I'm up to a lot. I'm on the trip I spent last week preparing for and, since I'm doing a lot of running around in my alma mater, work on SOLegal is quite slow for me. How about you? How's your week going?
Today, I'd like to share these three concepts that just make sense to incorporate into our lives. If today's headline looks like gibberish or a collection of random names, that's because they don't have a direct translation in English, plus they sound good in their origin language.
Let's take a look at these three concepts, shall we?
Literally: to change + good; to change for the better
Meaning: Continuous improvement
How to Apply: Always, always, always strive to become a better version of yourself. Reflect, retreat, redirect, re-evaluate, repeat.
Literally: making an effort
Meaning: Putting in the extra effort to ensure something is at its best
How to Apply: You don't have to be perfect but if a couple more steps or a little more work would take something from good to better – or even ‘best’ – don't hesitate to go that extra mile.
Literally: work + happiness/gladness; work joy
Meaning: Happiness at work and satisfaction for work done well
How to Apply: Work doesn't have to be gruesome. Make tasks fun and satisfying to do and when you've achieved something, take time to appreciate that you did that.
Did you know these concepts before now?
This Week's Legal Tip 💡
To build your CV and make job search after school easier, seek intern positions as an undergraduate. Opt for virtual/remote roles you can handle while school is in session or in-person roles you can take on during holidays.
You can intern as a Research Assistant, Legal Writer, etc. Be open-minded and extend your portfolio to include legal-related positions in non-Law organizations.
As always, I'm rooting for you to excel. And I'll be back on Friday.
Till then, Cheers!
