For me, it was working out and getting my body back into shape. The sad part is that goal was set over 2 years ago and I still keep telling myself, “Yeah I’ll start soon…”.
But I won’t ever start and neither will you.
Unless you take another strategy, that is. There are hundreds of reasons why we won’t start and we will make up excuses for every day that goes by. For me, it’s because I am a full-time dad, husband, employee. It’s so easy for me to throw the ‘I’m-too-tired’ card when it is time to get a…
Many of our good habits start vanishing when our lives become more and more hectic.
One of the most important habits we can establish is waking up at a reasonable time each day. This should be one of our biggest priorities, but we often forget about the benefits of waking up early.
Let me paint you a picture of why sleeping in later can throw your life off balance.
Not too long ago, I would set an alarm to give me 20 minutes to get ready for work. Sounds reasonable, right? The problem here is I would rush through all…
Amazon’s Alexa is constantly learning new tricks and she probably has plenty of new commands since the writing this article. If you have an Amazon Echo or any Alexa device, you may want to see what commands you are missing out on that would help you be more productive throughout the day.
If you think about it, the more productive you are, the less stressed you become. Let me give you an example:
You wake up and get ready for work. You finish up showering, throwing your clothes on, and hop in your car to start your commute…that is, if…
While the coronavirus continues to weaken the economy, it is wise for us to reduce our monthly expenses so that we are ready for any worst-case scenarios.
Technically, increasing your salary will help you bring more money in, but it doesn’t determine how much money you get to spend on yourself.
However, if you reduce your expenses, you can essentially achieve the SAME goal of increasing your salary.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused over 15 million people to be laid off in the U.S. as of the posting of this article.
Right now, we are in a time where we need to take care of others, but most importantly, take care of ourselves first. Without looking after ourselves, we cannot help our family and friends to the best of our ability.
Not everyone has been impacted by the coronavirus directly, but as this drags out another few months, we will all be impacted in one way or another.
Whether you lost your job or have to deal with…
There comes a point in everyone’s career where the excitement fades and the only thing that’s left is a monotonous job.
After speaking with some colleagues recently, it was apparent that a few of them were stuck in a career rut. I realized that a decent percentage of employees are unfulfilled in their current roles. That’s when my wheels started turning…
I love my current (now former, by the time you are reading this) employer and am very content in the role I’m in. However, I thought about running a personal experiment to solve this common problem for the masses.
Take a trip with me for just a moment. Let’s go back a few decades to a time when everything was simpler. A time where your email inbox is empty because it doesn’t exist. An era without cell phones to serve as virtual ball-and-chains and enslave us. A place where children go outside to play and have fun. Truly, a golden age when life was just far more simple, right?
Yeah, I have no clue. I’m a millennial, so I’ve only read history books about these supposed “simpler times.” It all sounds like quite a lovely fairy tale though! Lately…
Today is going to be the most productive day ever.
I have my coffee brewing, my laptop out, and I am going to start working on some gr….
Oh! look, an email.
I’ll just check this email and then I will start my day. Besides, it will only take a m…Wow, another like on my FB post.
One hour later, it is now time to remember what that important task was in the first place. This is a typical routine for most entrepreneurs. There are so many distractions that cause us to become crippled by time wasters. …
Remember the scene from from the Matrix when Trinity needs to learn how to fly the B212 helicopter? She calls for the operator to download all the knowledge to her brain in a matter of seconds.
How badass is that?!
Well, what I’m about to tell you…isn’t nearly THAT cool, but will help you download knowledge to your brain faster than any method you have been using.
Maintaining many professional relationships is undeniably one of the most important aspects of career growth. You never know when a current colleague could turn out to be the source of your next job!
We’ve all heard the old saying, “It’s not about what you know, but who you know,” or the more modern (and definitely better) take of, “It’s not who you know, but who knows you.” This makes total sense when you consider statistics from LinkedIn stating that referrals are the #1 way people discover new jobs, and is considered a top source of quality hires for companies.
