The Right Way To Be A Multitasker

Juggling

This re-post from Anna Winterstein at Lifehack gives a fresh perspective on a heavily discussed topic. I love her outlook about how to keep ALL the things in your life that you value while nixing those you don’t.

The Right Way To Be A Multitasker

The productivity ideal seems to be: know exactly what’s coming next, and then become exactly that.

But I don’t think that reflects the way most people function. We have jobs. We have personal lives. We have hobbies, interests, mood swings, little illnesses, moments of motivation, moments of joy. All of those things constantly change.

We were simply the usual victims of a case of “Life happens”. Life does happen, all the time. My point is, we should embrace it.

Take a look at this re-blog of Jeff Goins’ post. It’s one of the best I’ve read on the subject of      “why I write.” Enjoy!

3 Ways Writing Helped Me Build a Business, Launch a Dream, and Find My Purpose

Today, we hear a lot about the power of content. We hear how words can make you rich, how blogs can make you famous, and how writing can sell your products and services.

All of those possibilities may be true, but rarely do we hear enough about the ways in which writing can enrich our lives. And that’s just what it’s done for me.

Don’t get me wrong. This isn’t some Kumbaya crap.

I love making a living off my writing and being able to support my family doing something that is a lot of fun. But the truth is, all the money in the world isn’t worth doing something you hate.

Writing changed my life in every possible way. It awakened me to my purpose when I wasn’t sure I had one and helped me navigate the temptations of fame and success when they were most alluring.

7 Tips for Building Your Business While Working Your Day Job

1. Commit yourself to your dream. Having the desire for something to work vs. committing to it are vastly different.

Not for work

You may be doing everything right when it comes to work projects, but how can you earn their respect if your other actions tell a different story?

Take a look at these common-sense rules from Jenni Maier at The Muse to make sure you’re not teetering on the edge of disaster.

If You Dread Deadlines, You’re Thinking About Them All Wrong

mar16-18-imsis260-085-1200x675

Re-blogged from a post at Harvard Business Review by Elizabeth Grace Saunders

As a freelance writer with a full-time day job, deadlines have often added a great deal of stress to my life. If you’re a people-pleaser like me and attempt to leap tall buildings in order to meet your deadlines, this post may help you relax a little when you’re stressing over completing a project on time:

If You Dread Deadlines, You’re Thinking About Them All Wrong

As a time management coach, I work with many individuals who dread deadlines. Some of them meet their deadlines but only by becoming enormously frazzled and working late, which compromises their peace of mind and their work-life balance. Others end up missing deadlines entirely. This makes them feel guilty for the negative impact not only on themselves but also on their team members and projects. Deadlines can be a struggle — but they don’t have to be.
