• Prioritize your life
If you have an "anyhow" approach to life, you will always get an "anyhow" result. The Oxford English Dictionary describes "prioritize" in this manner- to put tasks, problems, e.t.c in order of importance so that you can deal with the most important first. This definition has explained the point clearly. Also, there is a concept in economics named "Scale of preference"; it is used to arrange human needs by their importance, where the most demanding need tops the list while the least important takes the last position.
Therefore, it is important that a job seeker embrace daily priority. This is the key to become better than before.
• Read books
The human mind is the center of thoughts, perceptions, and feelings. Whatever you read reflects on your mind which then evolves into your personality. A job seeker should endeavor to energize the mind by reading good books and live by lessons learned from such books.
