Avoid working at the expense of your personal life
There will always be work related pressures, but your work should not make you forget your personal life. Your endeavour should be to balance your short term deadline at work with all aspects of your personal life.
Stand up to bullies
The biggest regret in the life of most people is that they failed to stand up to the bullies in school or in job. Perhaps you were too scared at that point of time. You will spend years thinking that you ought to have been more confident. Most of us have also met up with a bully in our work life. Maybe he is your boss. But you have to put him in his place, or he will keep making life difficult for you.
Get rid of the smartphone addiction
These days many of us find it difficult to get rid of the smartphone or email addiction. We have even taken to sleeping with the phone next to us. In the middle of night we wake up to check for emails and Facebook updates. We carry it along constantly; it is right next to us in the shower. It is time to get over this smartphone addiction; the sky won’t fall down if you don’t post a status update on Facebook.
Start your own business
If you are filled with the desire to start your own business, then you have to do a proper planning and try your best to turn your dream into reality.
Act on your career hunches
You will hear from several individuals about the windows of opportunity that they had in their careers, the so-called “now-or-never moments.” It is important for you to identify these sometimes unpredictable but potentially rewarding moments of change, and jumping on these opportunities to non-linearly advance of your professional life.
Stop being obsessed with making right impression
Most of us place too much importance on what others around us think of us. In the moment, we think their opinions are crucial to our future success and happiness. But in the long run the opinion of others hardly matters.
The camera has evolved. The hottest camera these days are the hybrid cameras, which are also called mirrorless or compact-system camera. These are compact like a point-and-shoot camera, but they also offer a larger image sensor for better-quality shots. They are suitable for professionals as well as hobbyists. Like in case of the more expensive DSLRs, these cameras allow you to change lens to fit the scene that you are shooting. Here are some tips that you must keep in mind while buying a new camera:
When you are shooting an object, the light gets captured through the image sensor. The two main sensor sizes for hybrids are Micro Four Thirds and APS-C. If you are looking for portability, then the Micro Four Thirds sensor is a great option. The APS-C sensor will add bulk, but can provide better image quality and low-light shooting.
Along with size, you also need to consider megapixels, or the number of pixels the sensor can capture. Hybrids typically have 14MP to 24MP. For standard-size photo printing, any amount will work. However, if you are going to use the camera for clicking images that will go into large posters, or more detailed photo editing, then you have to go for higher megapixels.
Before you buy a camera, you should inquire about the lenses that are compatible with it. One of the big selling points of hybrids is interchangeable lenses. You can get lenses for close, wide-angle, distance and other types of shots.
Types of controls
The “auto” or the “guide” modes are quite comfortable, but the real power of the camera comes to the fore only when you are shooting in manual settings. You can tweak your camera for exposure, depth of field, shutter speed and much more to get the perfect shot.
Hybrids use electronic viewfinders to show you what you’re shooting. Most hybrids use LCD screens, but OLED screens, which are thinner and brighter outdoors, are also available.
Of course, price is a key factor in any camera that you buy. It will take some amount of research to find the camera that has the technological and size related specifications that you need, and is also in your budget.
