MiddleMe is about you and the 9 hours you spend on your job each day.
More often than not, I hear folks lamenting about their tasks and problems at work. At first, I would drop a few tips on how to improve their current situations but nothing much, just my two cents in such circumstances. Then, I started having more and more friends that even my colleagues approached me for career advice. Even when I left a company, I’d still get calls or text messages from my ex-colleagues seeking a different outlook from theirs. Right up to today, I have colleagues from my 4 previous companies that still consult with me about their careers and issues. After a while, this got me thinking… “Hmm, I must have been doing something right”.
I tried searching for a website or a blog that dishes out sound career advice to people. However, all I have come across are either very factual statistical articles or blogs written by Westerners for Westerner readers in a Western context. I am quite surprised that I could not find something that speaks in layman language, fit for you and me, and in an Asian society context since we all know that we are culturally different from the rest of the world. Also, have you read or heard about the advice “Sky is the limit” or “Be passionate”? This kind of advice is usually easier said than done. Everyone tells us to take the next step, but a lot of us do not even know where and how to proceed.
So, I’d like to help YOU with MiddleMe.
MiddleMe is where you can find the collaboration of all those pieces of advice that I have given to everyone, in the hope that it may help you too. Even if you do not have a problem, this website will surely inspire and enrich you in so many ways.
MiddleMe is also about helping you to make smart career moves and decisions. I will offer some tips, recommendations, and even personal stories to help you in your decision-making.
Lastly, MiddleMe is a platform for sharing. I will be sharing both mine and other people’s experiences, and the actions that we have taken to get ourselves unstuck in various situations, hoping that these stories can help you too.
Let’s make the 40 hours you spend each week on your desk worthwhile.
