Give up These Now! as a student

Have you ever thought which things can be an obstacle in your way of success? If you are a student, let’s understand those things which you have to give up in your student life to be successful in your career. Because sometimes, to become successful you don’t need to add more things but to give some of them up. There are so many things that hinder you from achieving your goals. You should give up on them while you are a student, as it might take a bit longer to give up on them.

Things you should give up as a student-

1. Give up on the unhealthy lifestyle

Most of the students are not serious about their lifestyle. But to be successful you must be used to a healthy lifestyle from the very beginning of your student life. Only three things you need to keep in mind- Quality sleep, Healthy diet, and Physical activity. Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.

2. Give up the short-term mindset

You have to set your mind as “To achieve your goal you need to go a long way and these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that you need to do every day. You may fail several times in the short run but you should keep trying to be successful in the long run.”

3. Give up on playing small

If you never try and take great opportunities or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential.

So, voice your ideas, don’t be afraid to fail, and certainly don’t be afraid to succeed.

4. Give up your excuses

Everyone is responsible for their lives and so yours. So give up your excuses, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally. Own your life; no one else will.

5. Give up the fixed mindset

People with a fixed mindset think their intelligence or talents are pre-determined traits that cannot be changed. They also believe that talent alone leads to success – without hard work. But they are wrong. So, you have to invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change perception so that it can benefit your life.

 6. Give up believing in the “magic bullet”

Overnight success is a myth. To be successful you have to make small continuous improvement every day. That is why you should plan for the future, but focus on the day that’s ahead of you, and improve just 1 percent every day.

7. Give up your perfectionism

Nothing will ever be perfect, no matter how much you try. A lot of opportunities will be lost if you wait for things to be right. Give up multi-tasking. “Most of the time multitasking is an illusion. You think you are multitasking but in reality, you are actually wasting time switching from one task to another” – Bosco Tjan

That is why being fully present and committed to one task is indispensable.

8. Give up your need to control everything

Detach from the things you cannot control, focus on the ones you can, and know that sometimes, the only thing you will be able to control is your attitude towards something.

9. Give up to on saying “yes” to things that don’t support your goals

In order to accomplish your goals, you will have to say no to certain tasks, activities that don’t support your goals. In the short-term, you might sacrifice a bit of instant gratification, but when your goals come to fruition, it will all be worth it.

10. Give up the toxic people

People you spend the most time with add up to who you become. If you spend time with those who refuse to take responsibility for their life, always find excuses and blame others for the situation they are in, your average will go down, and with it your opportunity to succeed. So, take a look at around you, and see if you need to make any changes.

11. Give up your need to be liked

Think of yourself as a market niche. There will be a lot of people who like that niche, and there will be individuals who don’t. And no matter what you do, you won’t be able to make the entire market like you. This is completely natural, and there’s no need to justify yourself.

12. Give up wasting time

You only have this one crazy and precious life. That’s why you owe it to yourself to see who you can become, and how far you can go. However, to do that, you need to ditch meaningless time wasters and stop allowing them to be an escape from your most important goals. To do that, you should learn how to take control over your focus, attention and make the most out of your 24 hours within a day.

Future of IT in Bangladesh

Information Technology ( IT ) has changed the world in modern days. IT is the special use of computers to store, extract, transmit and manipulate data or information. IT is considered as a subset of Information And Communication Technology. Humans have been storing, extracting, transmitting and manipulating data or information as a written format since Mesopotamia. Modern day technologies have upgraded the system and made unlimited storage. 

Over the last 7 years, the offshore IT market of Bangladesh has grown at a good rate. In fact Bangladesh has already become one of the best places for IT players in recent years. With the ability to operate at least 20-30% lower cost than any other countries of South Asia, Bangladesh gives a large entry-level workforce. 

The IT industry in Bangladesh helps the national economy a lot. This industry not only helps the national economy but also creates a prestigious position in the global market. The domestic market size was US$ 0.9-1.1 billion in 2017. But in 2020 the size is US$ 2.3-2.6 billion and the income is increasing. As a result the government of Bangladesh has given their interest in this sector already. Bangladesh has a large population and they are really interested to work in this sector. On the other hand, the cost of working in Bangladesh is really less than other Asian countries like India, Philippines, Pakistan etc. So the present state of IT industry in Bangladesh is really good. 

An IT based company wants a lot of things and Bangladesh is completing those wants. Supply of electricity is the first basic wants of a company. Bangladesh is producing as much as electricity. So there will be no load shedding in future. Then Bangladesh is connected with SEA-ME-WE 6 fibre cable. So the internet speed is good enough and increasing day by day. An IT company  needs that type of internet speed. 

Bangladesh is a country where anyone can build a business and carry on that. People easily get attached with those products. An IT company produces software, cloud computers, databases etc and people of Bangladesh always accept them properly. So the foreign investors are finding interest in investing in the IT sectors of Bangladesh. As we can see, the future is really bright for the IT sector. 

Moreover the government will make 100% corporate tax exemption till 2024 and 80% VAT exemption on rentals and utilities. The Bangladesh government is setting up 25 high-tech parks and software parks across the country.  The decision ‘50% personal income tax reduction for foreign employees for 3 years’ has given a wide range for the foreigners to work with this country’s people. 

Every year a lot of students are completing their graduation, post-graduation degree and trying their best to get a job. Unfortunately there are not enough job opportunities in Bangladesh. In this case the IT sector  is creating a big space. In an IT company an employer doesn’t need to be physically present. So he/she can work from a long distance. 

Bangladesh is mainly focused in the USA and the UK based IT sectors. Now the situation is changing and other rich European countries are also beneficial for the future of Bangladesh. So Bangladeshi IT companies are searching for the future market for Bangladesh in those countries.  

Bangladesh has limited liabilities but if the people utilizes these properly, the situation will improve. Bangladesh has the potential to play multiple roles in the service delivery portfolios of global companies. Bangladesh can be called a hub for the regional market. As the domestic market is poised  with remarkable growth, the government as well as private sectors will invest a lot in the IT industry in future. So the future of this industry is really on top of the mark. 

Bangladesh offers a compelling blend of quality talent at a lower cost with a risk profile much lower than commonly perceived. The proposition is further accentuated with sensible government support to boost foreign investments. Bangladesh has positioned herself as a strong contender for companies appraising locations for the next wave of cost arbitrage.  There are certain challenges regarding infrastructure, talent adjustability and data protection. However the government and industry have adopted bold measures to assuage their impact and create a harmonious ecosystem for the growth of the IT sector. It is important for companies to consider  Bangladesh to understand the nature of risks that exist and how they compare with other peer emerging locations in order to make an informed decision based on the ability to manage or mitigate such risks.
