Regular readers will know that our “Goods” slot has focused on great products to help you lead a more sustainable lifestyle. In 2023, we’re going to be expanding the remit to include things you can do, as well as buy. So do get in touch – if it’s a great documentary you have enjoyed, a brilliant online course you’ve taken or a set of practical ideas and tips for living more sustainably. Email us at Friday5@good.business and we’d love to include it.
I should introduce myself too. My name is Amara, and I am currently spending a week at Good Business gaining some work experience after visiting for a career day during summer last year.
Seeing as it is a brand-new year, I’ve written myself a long list of resolutions and I figured that this year I need to stick to them. One of the resolutions at the top of my list was how can I, as an individual, make an impactful difference to this world? I knew that this was something I was passionate about but I didn’t know where to start.
But then I remembered the career day that I attended last summer with Good Business, so I reached out to them, and this brings me to where I am today. Spending a week here and being involved in the many different projects that they work on to deliver change has made me more passionate and has been a wake-up call for what is really needed in the world.
I’m sure we’ve all had times where we want to make a change and don’t know where to start. For me, identifying the skills I have and figuring out how to use them to achieve that change, has been really helpful. And if you’re looking to make a change in your day job this year, I’d really recommend this blog post from the founder of Today Do This, who sets out four practical steps to doing this. I have found it really helpful, and am going to make sure I refer back to it regularly when I enter the world of full time work!
What will you do to make a change?
