Yes, we all are looking for our dream job. Some of us already found it and some of us are still in pursuit of it. Jobzella sat down with those who have found their dream job and we couldn’t help noticing that they all shared some daily habits that put them on the road to success and ultimately: their dream job.
Discover Jobzella’s 14 daily habits to incorporate in your life to get to your dream job.
1- Ask Questions
Nothing should be taken for granted, if you don’t understand something, ask. Even if the field you are enquiring about is irrelevant to your job, extra knowledge never hurt.
Build an online network of like minded professionals and whenever you find a networking event that interests you, skip that night’s outing with friends and go to that event. Remember that every networking event brings you one step closer to your dream job.
3- Watch Educational Videos
That is the beauty of the internet, whatever it is you want to learn, you will easily find Youtube and Vimeo videos that explain it in great details. Set aside 20 minutes for that purpose every day.
4- Take Online Courses
Have you tried exploring Jobzella’s daily updated collection of free online courses from the world’s best educational institutions?
5- Catch Up On Current Events
Whether you like it or not, getting the daily update on Economic and Political events does affect your working life. From stock exchange to turmoil or recently enforced taxes, you need to catch up on current events and it only takes less than 5 minutes.
6- Write it Down
Learned something new today? Write it down! It may seem childish but using pen and paper to jot down your thoughts will only make them clearer as opposed to depending on your own memory from the start.
7- Ask for Help
If you can’t do it, then you can’t do it. Don’t pretend not to need help, asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness.
8- Learn a New Word
Not only does it benefit you to increase your vocabulary but learning a new word everyday opens up your horizons and exposes you to daily bursts of inspiration. There are phone and desktop applications you can use to have your word of the day delivered to your email/phone screen. It only takes a minute to read each new word every day.

The Italians call it “Il Dolce Far Niente” or the sweetness of doing nothing at all.

It is your own personalized form of yoga J
