It’s important for me to feel productive. In order for that to happen, I must know my boundaries. There is a trick to this. It’s knowing your personality. Say WHAAAT!
As organized as I am, there are days that I do not get much done. While that might be ok a couple days of the week, I have commitments that I want to honor-to myself and others. I get frustrated on work days when I do not accomplish what is on my calendar. Sound familiar?
On days where there is so much
The title is not an oxymoron. It is possible to declutter AND save money! With knowledge and motivation, you can save money by decluttering and organizing your home. Did you know, 1 out of 10 Americans rent a storage unit because they have so much stuff? And, did you know, there are 5 times more storage units then Starbucks cafes!! Just think how many more Starbucks coffees you can have if you did not have that storage unit. Now there’s a motivational thought for you. Thi
Although the expansion of the elastic on my pants is not what I intended. The wine and cheese was very good! The focus of my blogs is about growing indeed; it is mainly passionate growth both personally and for our environment. I want to inspire more passion in people and less waste in landfills. So my intent is to inspire you to live an evolutionary life while caring for yourself and the environment you live in. Recently, I was provoked by the thought of living my life on
How many times do we look at a project and get overwhelmed? Some days it’s hard to even break it down into manageable pieces. I faced this as I played my Sudoku puzzle just now. OK! So I took a break from my project. I was overwhelmed. This puzzle lost its appeal quickly because I couldn’t focus from thinking too hard. Then I finally realized answers became clear when I didn’t think about anything else and used the process of elimination. Voila! Done. Finished. Complete. The
Do you aspire to achieve your dreams, or dream to achieve what you aspire? The answer depends on how you were raised. The result is determined by your current mindset. The main question seems to be whether you will achieve what you set your mind to. While I can sing the song from Disney about dreams really do come true, the reality was never imbedded. It’s no wonder why I played tennis. I was a natural. I lived a tennis game life. One day I was encouraged to make good grades.
I had this epiphany one day when I was so frustrated with myself on not accomplishing more work. More specifically not tackling what I knew I had to do. Being articulate is not a strength of mine but there are two words that are pretty straight forward in the English language. Perfectionism and Procrastination. If you are a person that thinks in clear terms, then you identify with either side of the spectrum these two words have as bookends. I urge you to rethink the number o
Bees are one of the best examples of team building. The product, no wait, products, they produce and influence taste wonderful, look beautiful, and create fulfillment. Friends and teams are just as beneficial. The one ingredient these all need to thrive is water. Boring eh. Nevertheless, true. Water is an important commodity for them all to be successful. For bees to produce that yummy liquid gold. Teams to produce the gold for the pocketbook. Friends to enjoy the golden or r
It seems to reason, there IS exercise involved in muscles and brain activity. When you’re happy you’re healthier. Consider bees and why there is a saying ‘busy as a bee’. They love making honey. Do you love making money? If not, take the time to evaluate how you work and whether you are working in the field you enjoy. No, we can’t all tell our boss take this job and shove it. I ain’t working here no more. However, you can take control of your emotions and some of your work e
