What happens after you play the blame game?

What happens after you play the blame game?

November 8, 2018

We’ve all done it. A moment goes wrong and we start to point a finger or two at something (or someone) and lay the damage at their door. Or, we blame ourselves, jumping to the worst conclusions about our abilities.  

We’ve all done it. A moment goes wrong and we start...

Make peace with the fact that not everyone will like you

Make peace with the fact that not everyone will like you

Worrying about whether or not other people like you can be an anxiety-ridden waste of time. You’re never going to be everyone’s favorite person, so why do so many of us keep trying to change what makes us, us?

The secret to lagom: the Swedish art of living a balanced, healthy life

The secret to lagom: the Swedish art of living a balanced, healthy life

October 25, 2018

For a long time, I was mildly curious in hygge, the Danish concept of recognizing a moment as special or charming. I kept meaning to look it up and find out more, but never did. Instead, while browsing the shelves at a local Target, I saw a book called Lagom.

Fake motivation still pays the bills

Fake motivation still pays the bills

October 18, 2018

It was during a particularly bad slump of feeling unproductive and dissatisfied with how I was spending my time, that I discovered I had been asking the wrong questions and misdiagnosing my problem. Instead of asking why I wasn’t motivated, I should have been asking in what ways can I find motivation?

Telling strangers you’re an accountant, and other ways to find humility

Telling strangers you’re an accountant, and other ways to find humility

October 11, 2018

I believe that the universe always gives what I need if I just know where to look. And being stereotyped as “not cool” is just one way we accountants have been gifted the tools for a successful and happy life! That gift is humility.

It’s gut check time

It’s gut check time

October 4, 2018

All of us have the capacity to feel what our gut is telling us — which means it must be connected to our brain in some way. I’m sure there’s scientific research on this, but I think that when I trust my gut, I’m trusting my brain.

Travel for work and make it fun

Travel for work and make it fun

September 20, 2018

During a glorious three-week break between my final busy season (so fun to type out!) and beginning with Siegfried this past April, I spent some time doing a little self-reflection. For my sake, I won’t reveal the full extent of my findings. But, I will share that I was disappointed by the lack of travel I’d undertaken so far.

Build a better relationship with your love language

Build a better relationship with your love language

September 13, 2018

This summer, one of my friends asked me about my love language. It may not sound like it at first, but the idea of a “love language” applies to friends, colleagues, significant others, and family.

How much is our physical well-being impacted by something the majority of us do all day? Off the top of your head, how much time do you spend sitting down? Research shows that we spend 9.3 hours a day on average sitting down — which might not be a surprise to those of us that work at a computer. It’s what everyone does. But how can we counteract all the negative side effects of sitting for too long?

Easy, actionable steps to reduce stress

August 30, 2018

Sometimes, the combination of work responsibilities and the demands of friends and family can put you in a rut, too stressed out and overwhelmed to make progress on any of your goals, and definitely too distracted to be a joy to spend time with. But stress isn’t necessary and there are simple, actionable strategies that can reduce stress and put you one step closer to improved work-life synergy, something we value at Siegfried.
