Role model alert: Ayşegül İldeniz #5mincoffeebreak @TurkishWIN @AyseIldeniz

Ayşegül İldeniz’i ilk defa OKUL’11 de dinleme fırsatı bulmuştum. Üniversite’de 2. yılım, Boğaziçi’nin kulüplerinden BÜYAK‘ta Tanıtım Direktörü olarak yönetim kurulundayım ve karşımda Türkiye’nin en başarılı kadınlarından biri… Etklenmemek imkansız. Dinlediğim ilk iş kadını değildi fakat spor kıyafeti ve samimi iletişimiyle aradan sıydırldığı kesin.

I’ve recently watched 2 TED videos about how nonverbal behaviour, namely our body language, can affect us. I’m not talking about leaving a great impression on others through an impressive body language but rather leaving a great impression on our bodies, hormones, minds and feelings through tiny changes on our posture and facial expression.

1) Plan

- Break complicated work into pieces

- List all the tasks

- Prioritise the tasks

- Keep your list visible

- Use waiting times for doing small tasks
