Sometimes, dealing with stress is just hard. We all have times when we feel frazzled: worried that we haven’t done enough; we aren’t moving in the right direction or if we are doing the right things, and then stress out from our perception of how well (or not) we are doing.
There are several times during the week in which you should take the time to reflect: once at the end of each day, and then a larger, more in-depth review at the end of the week. In order for these reflection sessions to help with productivity and progress toward achieving your goals, they need to be positive experiences in order to be constructive.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
It’s an old quote but a good one. In any journey – even the journey to success in personal or professional life. The single step here being amazing planning. Let’s get you set off on the right foot with this quick run-down of how to plan success.
Great planning is the ultimate tool for streaming your actions and ideas into a path designed just for you to get you to where you need to go. Here are some quick tips on how to plan like a boss.
In this post, I will discuss why you should review your week, how to review your week, fuel your inner fire and plan your next week based on the week you just had.
It’s a weekend cycle, but won’t take up too much of your time on any one day – and on Saturdays, the process is even better as you are plain not going to do anything goals, review or planning related. Not at all.
My purpose here is to suggest to you a great way to maximise follow-through on your hard grafted goals while staying inspired – and allowing time for yourself.
I may be no blogging expert just yet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t thoroughly enjoy it. While I still have a lot to learn about creating useful and engaging content, here are some simple reasons I continue to love blogging.
What do you do when you work with your hands – and then develop RSI? The best thing you can do is to prevent and treat RSI as quickly as you can. Let me tell you how.
Some of these things may be obvious, however, it is insanely easy to get carried away when shopping for your next camera and all the kit that is going to go with it. (And before we go any further – Canon is my bias. I’m not sponsored, I just like them. Shh, don’t tell… 😉 )
Your camera is a key piece of equipment and it’s something that should be treated with the respect that it deserves.
Let’s put a common sense filter on our foray into the camera market. Take a cautionary approach and avoid making impulse purchases as much as possible – use this post to help you understand what it is that you need.
In keeping with the theme of having an amazing day off, I’d like to take a moment to talk about my amazing and chill weekend.
I am a recent and avid believer that downtime is essential. Before, I did understand this in theory. Of course, I am very hard-core about whatever I do generally and tend to dive into things head first. (Like that time on that one water slide: I fell through the hole into the plunge pool…head first. Oh. My. Days.)
Taking a day off gives you some much-needed downtime. Just as your body needs sleep – your heart rate drops allowing your heart a much-needed breather in order to function fully the next day – you as a person need to go at a slower pace of life at least one day each and every week.
Your imagination, inspirations and overall mental capacity needs time to slow down and collect itself.
Repair missing motivation. Refresh your mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical reservoirs. This enables you to reload your ambitions for your most successful week yet.
