My daughter was assigned to make a website in school. They were asked to make a website as a project. I was greatly amazed at how early they were exposed to such a difficult task. Well, that was difficult for me, but she was able to make it and garnered a very high rating. I tried asking her on how to create my own website and she smiled and said it was easy. Well, the reason why she said that was because in their earlier years, they were already exposed to the many workings of the computer.
Unlike me, I only know how to send emails, click like on Facebook, update my budget with Excel and thats just that. Most often those baby boomers like me do not have computers while growing up too. And our most common hindrance is that we tend to stick to areas where we are most comfortable with. We do not want to go with the changes. However, all these are just in our mind. If we persevere, we can learn. That is the reason why I am starting to do research on the topic. I may not be able to get it on the first try, but I will soon. The point is I am not giving up on my dream, one of which is to learn how to create my own website.
Body language is more important than most people realize. The words we say are important, but our body language can convey even more than our words. People can tell if we are interested, not interested, bored, excited, happy, sad, mad, etc. just by the way we carry our body and the movements we make. When trying to make a good impression, it is very important that we are aware of our body language. Sometimes one is so worried about what they say and how they say it that they don’t realize that their body movements can be noticed as well. For example, if you are fidgeting, shaking your leg, or exhibiting other nervous behaviors, people may think that you are not confident or sure of yourself. This is not something that you would want a job interviewer to see as in that type of situation you want to make the best impression that you possibly can. Body language can also make a huge difference in how people react to us in general. If you are always looking down, never smiling, and never looking people in the eye, it is hard to meet new people an make new friends. When interactions aren’t going the way you planned or hoped, take note of your body language, it just might be what is making the difference.
