This article describes my unique way of pursuing a promotion by choosing the goals that will take me there and setting aside time to accomplish them.

I have spent more than a year on my current position as a Senior Professional. During this time, I deliberately kept my mind clear of the promotion process. There was so much to learn and grow horizontally that I did not want to miss the chance to do it by concentrating on something else. Now, I feel that it is time to take a look and architect my way to the Principal level.

This article describes how I approached my promotion by shifting my concentration from the urgent to the important. The culture of my current company praises self-driven, self-service professionals and this is why everybody has their promotion in their own hands. Nobody will take you there but rather you have to convince yourself and everybody else that you belong there. At your own pace.

Are your subconscious mind, emotional mind, and conscious mind out of sync? Is your brain operating on high frequencies without giving you rest? This article will teach you how to restore the harmony using meditation.

The Subconscious Mind is just one of the parts of our brains: 1) the conscious part that controls our thoughts; 2) the emotions part that controls our emotions; 3) the subconscious part that stores all memories, habits, and skills.
