Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Are you feeling tired all the time at work?

You may be suffering from a condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome. It is very hard to diagnose the condition, but if you have constantly been feeling tired for the past six months, then you might well suffer from CFS.

Many people that are very focused and driven at work get the problem, too often they think it’s because they are stressed or is just not getting enough sleep. Both these can contribute to the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome, but they are not the main problem.

Women are four times more likely to get CFS. If you have been feeling tired for a prolonged period of time, then go and see your doctor. Tell them you think it’s CFS. There is no specific chronic fatigue syndrome treatment yet, the doctor will usually prescribe a mixture of a sleeping aid and lifestyle changes.

You may be one of the lucky ones and only suffer from bad habits causing your constant feeling of being tired. Why not make a few lifestyle changes. Try this chronic fatigue syndrome diet guidelines and see if you do not feel better a few weeks. Junk food, too little fresh food, too little water can cause lots of trouble.

If you do feel you might be suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, then read this post, what is chronic fatigue syndrome for more information.

Transformation process
Transforming my career into a thriving career
Chapter 5
p.8
I really want to grow in my job and as a person become a real “World Class Champion” in everything I do. How do I go about it?
The Walk and Talk Process provides ample opportunity for growing your personal and job related skills to a level that will enable you to achieve excellence in everything you do.
Once you become aware of your current level of competence your transformation into a “World Class Champion” not only depends on how you utilize opportunities to learn but also on how you choose to deal with the feelings involved in this process of transformation.
Through learning from feedback and practicing and monitoring it, you can grow from a position of being “unconscious of your incompetence” to a position where you can do your job so well that you become “unconscious of your competence” – it just becomes the way you do things. It will, however, depend largely on how you choose to deal with feedback and the pain caused by it.
The following diagram illustrates the “Process of Transformation” as steps that we have to climb in the process of growing in our job.
Feedback can cause pain. If you ignore the signal, make excuses or go into denial, you follow the path of fools as no growth will occur.
Rather pay attention to painful signals and acknowledge them as Motivational Tools for growth.
“Incompetence” does not imply a value judgement… it refers to skills to be learned… “Competence” on the other hand refers to skills used.

Feedback can cause pain. If you ignore the signal, make excuses or go into denial, you follow the path of fools as no growth will occur.

Rather pay attention to painful signals and acknowledge them as Motivational Tools for growth. This is especially true for someone considering a midlife career change, you needs lots of input and feedback before you make the change.
