One of the most important skills you need to develop in your career is self management. These are the skills to ensure you are able to take care of yourself, understand the impact you have on other people and focus on the important things you need to do in order to be successful. Learn some techniques for being a better version of yourself set against the very real threat of the zombie apocalypse and why zombies will inevitably emerge victorious in the struggle between humanity and the living dead.
