Shyness - How To Keep It From Ruining Your CareerShyness - How To Keep It From Ruining Your CareerMost people experience shyness from time to time. They may feel it when walking into a business meeting or cocktail party and cant find a friendly face, or when they have to call a stranger because a friend suggested theynetwork with him or her. While they may feel inhibited onlyin certain situations, you may be among those individuals for whom shyness is a personality trait- a significant part of who you are- and it may be asevere impediment to yourcareer. What Is Shyness According to the Encyclopedia of Mental Health, shyness may be defined experientially as discomfort and/or inhibition in interpersonal situations that interferes with pursuing ones interpersonal or professional goals (Henderson, Lynn and Phillip Zimbardo. Shyness. The Encyclopedia of Mental Health. San Diego Academic Press.). Shyness may vary from mild social awkwardness to totally inhibiting social phobia, also fr om this source. Many scientists believe individuals are shy because they are genetically predisposed to being that way. In laymans terms, if your parents are shy, your brain may be wired to be so as well. Others cite technology as a cause of this personality trait. Psychologists Bernardo Carducci and Phillip Zimbardo believetechnological advances that allow for fewer interpersonal interactions have caused shyness to increase in recent years. Because of automatic teller machines, voice mail, and the internet, we dont have to talk to other people as much. Other shyness experts dont blame technology but instead think these changes in how we communicate can be helpful to individuals with this trait. They feel using the Internet helps socially inhibited people improve their interpersonal skills (Hendricks, Melissa. Why So Shy?USAWEEKEND.COM). How Can Shyness Affect Your Career? Your career may suffer if you are shy. Some of the reasons are obvious. It may keep you from presenting yo urself well on job interviews. You may struggle to answer questions or look the interviewer in the eye. Networking could be extremely difficult for individuals who find it hard to communicate. You will also be hesitant to pursue opportunities that can help advance your career. Shyness may have less predictable effects on your career. Researchers have found that people who are shy tend to begin their careers later and are mora likely to refuse promotions than their counterparts who are not as inhibited. They choose occupations that dont requireinterpersonalskills and are more undecided about which field to pursue (Azar, Beth. When Self Awareness Works Overtime. APA Monitor. November 1995). Shy people have a harder time developing a career identity- an image of themselves as competent or successful within a career track. So, while you may worry about how others perceive you, it is the way you view yourself that can be your biggest problem. It is likely to keep you from advancing. Overcoming Shyness Richard Heimberg, Ph.D., an expert in social phobia at Temple University, believes the origins of shyness are similar to those of this more severe disorder. He described social phobia, currently calledsocial anxiety disorder, as shyness gone wild, and stated that it cuts people off from the good things of life- social interaction, love, family(Azar, Beth. Social-Phobia Treatments May Also Work for Problem Shyness.APA Monitor. 1995). Dr. Heimberg has done research into effective treatments for social phobia that may eventually be used to cure shyness. Heimberg and psychiatrist Michael Liebowitz, M.D. conducted a study that looked at the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or an antidepressant drug to treat people who have social phobia. Many participants who received eithertreatment showed significant improvement, but those who were treated with CBT had longer lasting effects. Of those who received the drug, many relapsed, but only a small percentage of part icipants who received CBT did (Stemming Social Phobia. APA Monitor. July/August 2005).If you think your shyness is impacting your career advancement, consider seeking treatment. Several sessions with a therapist who specializes in using CBT may remove a significant impediment to your career and allow you to move forward. Your shyness may not be debilitating enough to warrant therapy or medication, but still may be keeping you from reaching your potential. Some shy people find that it is helpful to expose themselves to social situations. They even take jobs that force them to interact with other people despite their reservations. The following resources can help you understand shyness and can also help you find ways to overcome it. Resources Take a look at these resources to learn more about shyness and what you can do to keep it from affecting your career. The Quiet DisorderShy and FreeThe Shyness Home Page

Aircraft Maximum Gross Takeoff Weight MGTOWAircraft Maximum Gross Takeoff Weight MGTOWIn the FAAs Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, Maximum Takeoff Weight is defined as the maximum allowable weight for takeoff. More specifically, the maximum takeoff weight is a limitation placed on the aircraft by the aircraft manufacturer during the design and testing process. Its a fixed weight. Industry Jargon In aviation, MTOW is short for Maximum Takeoff Weight. Sometimes people refer to this weight as MGTOWor Maximum Gross Takeoff Weight. These two terms are interchangeable. More rarely, this weight can be referred to as Maximum Brake Release Weight. MTOW or MGTOW should notlage be confused with the Maximum Gross Weight of the aircraft itself, which is the maximum weight an aircraft can structurally handle, whether taking off or sitting on the ramp. The Maximum Gross Weight for an aircraft should never be exceeded at any time. MTOW can sometimes be exceeded, but not usually by a signifi cant amount. For example, an aircraft can exceed MTOW when sitting on the ramp but must get rid of this weight before its brakes are released on the departure runway. Since the aircraft will burn fuel during the startup and taxi, its possible that it will weigh slightly more upon startup than during takeoff. Importance Due to structural limitations, an aircraft is restricted to a certain weight while taking off. If this weight is exceeded, the aircraft may become structurally damaged, or worse, fail to complete a successful takeoff altogether. Aircraft designers and manufacturers know the importance of MTOW. To their customers, a higher MTOW means an airplane can take off with more fuel and will have a longer range. Use Caution Its important to note that just because an aircraft is certified for a particular Maximum Takeoff Weight doesnt mean that the aircraft can always take off at this maximum weight. Many individual factors are to be considered for an aircraft to be dete rmined safe to take off at a particular weight. A pilot needs to compute takeoff and climb performance, which is largely dependent on other variables like the following Elevation The higher the field elevation, the thinner the air is. An airplane will have a decrease in performance at high altitudes, which means a full payload may not be possible.Temperature High temperatures also decrease aircraft performance, and can require a lighter load.Density altitude The higher the density altitude, which is pressure altitude corrected for nonstandard temperature, the worse the aircraft performance.Runway length and surface An aircraft loaded to its maximum takeoff weight may require a long runway, and the same aircraft may not be able to take off on a shorter runway under certain conditions. Runway gradient An up-sloping runway will require a longer takeoff distance than a down-sloping or flat runway, and should be taken into consideration with a heavy aircraft.Wind strength A headwind aids takeoff performance a tailwind degrades it.Obstacles during departure Extremely heavy aircraft wont have a very good climb rate therefore, its especially important to calculate the climb gradient and rate for aircraft at the particular takeoff weight. A required climb gradient to overcome obstacles may not be possible in a very heavy aircraft.

Here is the number 1 reason people dont succeedHere is the number 1 reason people dont succeedWhen a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure. - Marilyn StrathernThere is a law in statistics known as Goodharts law, named after the economist Charles Goodhart, which proposes that people often focus on the wrong target, mistakenly believing it was the right metric.As an example, a manager of a call center may make the target the number of calls made, believing that the number of calls made will translate to sales.The people who make the most calls then are the ones awarded, even though a sheer number of calls may or may notlage translate to the real goal which may be pleasing the customer or number of sales.This is rewarding A while trying to get B.Why does this matter?According to Dan Sullivan, the founder of Strategic Coach, the reason most people dont succeed long-term is that they are more interested in position than growth.Be honest with yourself.Why do you really want what you want?Why do you put in all of the hours?Most people, if they are honest with themselves, want success because of some form of position it will give them.They wont admit this to you, but deep down, the status is what matters.It is for this reason that success is generally short-lived for most people. Once they achieve a certain degree of status, their motivation for doing the work goes away.When your focus is on status, your job becomes to create and maintain that status. This is particularly common in todays social media world where everyone is attempting to be famous for one thing or another.Growth often comes at the expense of status.In order to keep growing, youll need to risk the status and success of your past for something new and better. Of course, youre not afraid of status. But that status is uninteresting and unimportant to you.The reason most writers will never succeed is that ultimately, what they really want is status. Yet, deep down, they also feel this s trange belief that they need to be pure to their art, so they dont want to do it for money.People who go on to become successful at something are not afraid of success. They arent afraid of making money. But money inherently isnt interesting to them. They are fascinated by growth and pushing their own boundaries. They can never actually quantify success because, for them, that very idea is continuously changing.Theyve never arrived, and they never intend to arrive.They dont care about their previous achievements. They dont care about their status.Do they have a status? Of course When growth is your focus, status generally comes. But that status doesnt matter. Theres no attachment to it. And theres certainly no fear about losing that status.People seeking growth are willing to embrace the unknown. Theyre willing to fail. Theyre willing to attempt stuff that may not work. Actually, when true growth - seeing how far you can actually go - is your only true measure of success, then you re willing to risk everything youve previously built to attempt what you want or believe you should do.Status is not what you should be measuringHow do we often measure a persons success?Its by their status.Status, then, can become our measure of success. And when the measure becomes the target, then it is no longer a useful measure.If a status is what youre seeking, then youre long-term growth is screwed. Once you get what you want, all of your motivation will evaporate. Youll run out of future to pursue. Youll stop being willing to disrupt your lifestyle or status in order to pursue something bigger and better.Status should be used as a means, not an endDont be afraid to obtain a status and leverage it to move forward. Dont be afraid of people calling you a sell-out.Dont be afraid of people being jealous of you and stealing your work.If growth is your focus and true motive, then youll do some powerfully innovative stuff. Youll be an industry transformer who doesnt merely play the game, but changes and creates the game.In due process, youll develop status and success. And you wont be afraid of that. In fact, youll often seek various statuses as a means of pursuing greater and greater growth. But the status itself means absolutely nothing to you. And the moment that particular status becomes a hindrance to the growth youre seeking, you eliminate that status from your life.You dont hold on to it.Youre willing to destroy what you were for what you will become.You never over-attach to a particular identity or status.You use them to move forward. But status is far from your target. Its a measure, not a target. And you dont have those two things confused.As a result, you never get derailed by failure or success. Youre fluid, not fixed. You are always pushing your own boundaries, always re-inventing yourself, always pushing your own limits of what is possible.Because you dont care about status, you always create new and more compelling statuses. You have what other people want, and what their measure of success is. And you never cared about it in the first place.To quote Viktor Frankl from Mans Search for Meaning Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success you have to let it happen by not caring about it Success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.When growth is your true goal, you have no real competition. You know that most of the competition, at some point or another, will achieve some status and eventually seek solely to maintain that status. And when your ultimate goal is simply to maintain where you are, then youre well on your way to falling completely apart.Ready to upgrade?Ive created a cheat sheet for putting yourself into a PEAK-STATE, immediately.
