📼To put ideas into practice can be overwhelming, especially if you have a long to-do list. Play this video to get three top tips on how to organize yourself to achieve your goals. You'll hear from Theresa Aubinger, Strategic Territory Sales Representative at Autodesk, who shares what she learned in her career experience.
📼 Put ideas into practice hierarchically. Tip #1: Prioritize tasks. One of the greatest lessons you can learn is how to properly prioritize your goals. You should always prioritize your to-do list based on your primary job function within the company. Decide the order of your tasks accordingly.
📼Manage time to put ideas into practice Tip #2: Block your calendar. Your day’s activities should be driven by what’s on your calendar. Managing time is your responsibility. One way to ensure that you are dedicating time to key job functions is by blocking your calendar. For example, you can schedule prospecting for new opportunities. If you work in Sales, account planning is another thing that you can schedule on your calendar. Dedicate time to all your tasks!
Put Ideas Into Practice Successfully - Tip #3: Create An Accountability Plan
When it comes to accountability and planning, documentation is critical. It's the only way you’ll be able to track your priorities and track your and other people's action items. This is critical for being successful. By documenting, sharing, and then reviewing your plan, you're able to hold yourself and your team members accountable, and you can also use this to help your customers get things done.

💎To make a successful career move, you need to follow some steps. Watch the video to the end to get ideas on how to achieve it!
📼Wondering how to make a non-traditional career move? Play this video to get three top tips that will guide you through the process. You'll hear from Lindsay Syhakhom, Cloud Solutions Architect at Logicworks, who shares her own experience in moving from a non-technical role into a technical role.
📼 Make a career move inside your company! Tip #1: Cross team boundaries. Volunteer for tasks that cross teams at your current organization. A lot of people assume that to change careers, they also have to change employers. And that's not always the case. You can lay the foundation at your current job for the career that you want to have. Look for teams in your organization that either partially align or even fully align to the position that you want. And then think of creative ways to interface with that team.
📼 Make a career move using your institutional knowledge! Tip #2: Become the expert. If you are applying to another team in your same company, one of the advantages to your company hiring you versus hiring somebody else is that you know what the company sells, you know how teams function and take seriously that that institutional knowledge is very important. Every company has its quirks. Knowing those things is going to help you when you're applying for the next job.
Make A Career Move Confidently! - Tip #3: Ask For What You Want
Before she applied to become a cloud solutions architect, Lindsay Syhakhom had conversations with members of her team and reached out to people on other teams at Logicworks that she really trusted and had the conversation with them first. This helped take the edge off of her first conversation with HR, and with a hiring manager about her desire to move into this other field, and get their feedback. Remember that you have to apply for the job. No one can read your mind and know that you want to make this non-traditional career move!

💎If you transition to the accounting area from another field you get to share your perspectives and innovative approaches with your team, which will make it grow. Watch the video to the end to get some insight on how to change your field with great success!
📼Wondering how to transition into the accounting area? Play this video to get three top tips to do it smoothly. You'll hear from Allen Lopez, Staff Accountant at Chubbies, who is here to share his own transition experience with you!
📼If you transition to the accounting area, don’t be messy. Tip #1: Stay organized. While being organized is beneficial in any role, it's especially important when you're an accountant. The work that they do relies upon different departments, and that's why it's important to make sure to keep up to date with any specific deadlines. For Allen, this means using his online calendar, and also keeping a notepad on his desk so that he’s aware of any tasks that are either being added to his priority list or need priority adjustment.
📼Willing to transition to the accounting area? Why? When? How? Tip #2: Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Although it can at times be intimidating, the best way to learn how to do something new, or get a refresh on something that you aren't completely comfortable doing yet, is by asking questions. Allen still asks questions multiple times throughout the week because he always wants to make sure that he’s doing things the right way.
Your Transition To The Accounting Area Includes Giving Your Perspective - Tip #3: Feel Empowered To Share Your Ideas
Always feel empowered to share your ideas. If accounting has proven something, it's that there's no one way to do things. There are multiple solutions to the same problem, and one might be more efficient than the other. New approaches and perspectives allow the team to grow. And inspiration for a new idea can come from anywhere. Do not hesitate to express yourself!

💎 Don’t miss these design lessons from the game industry brought to you by a game designer at Riot Games! Watch the video to the end to learn how to improve the work you do as a game designer.
📼 Press play to get 3 design lessons for a game industry career from Candace Thomas, Principal Game Designer at Riot Games, who will share with you the insights that she has learned throughout her successful 15-year career.
📼 Design Lessons From The Game Industry - Tip #1: Check In With Yourself. How are you feeling? Are you having some anxiety? Are you stressed about a deadline? Are you afraid that someone's going to reject your idea? Do you not even know where to start in the first place? If so, that's okay. Take a deep breath and don't shame yourself for it. It's natural. Instead, work to reduce your anxiety. Do things like ping your ideas off of your coworkers to gain confidence. Talk to your manager or your stakeholder about what's expected of you, the timeline, and all of your concerns. This will help you build some confidence, or it may even allow you to push back the date in a way that makes you feel more confident in what you're doing.
📼 Design Lessons From The Game Industry - Tip #2: Make Lists. Candace's advice is to start by making a list of all the things that excite you about the project that you’re working on, to get yourself hyped and enthused about it. Having these things handy and taking stock of what you appreciate about what you’re working on will help you power through any roadblocks or slumps in your creative process. The next one is a list of the goals that you're trying to achieve by the end of your project. Think about what message you're trying to send, and the audience that you're trying to send it to. The last list that Candace advises to do is one of your support group. First, add the people that you know you’ll have to collaborate with to finish your project. Candace also likes to include the people that she knows can inspire or encourage her along the way. Having a support group is going to be helpful when you get roadblocked. And if you spend some cycles thinking about how these people like to communicate and how they collaborate most effectively, it might remove that small barrier that you have to reach out for help when you need it.
Design Lessons From The Game Industry - Tip #3: Fill In The Details
This is the stage where you’ll fill out the content of your project or your game design. It sounds simple, but this is the actual hard part, right? At least, now you're primed for success! For one, you've made a list of all the people that you need to collaborate with, and a list of people that you know you can bounce ideas off of if you get roadblocked. Second, you've shed all of the negative emotion that you might have brought into the space, and you have lots of confidence in what you're doing. And lastly, you have a list of goals ready for you to check back in with, to make sure that your project is still running smoothly.
