Why we procrastinate and what to do about it

Why we procrastinate and what to do about it

July 18, 2019

We’ve all been there. Late at night, glued to our desk chair, bleary-eyed from hours of screen time and harsh fluorescent lights, cramming as much productivity as possible into the fleeting hours before a deadline. In accounting, it’s virtually unavoidable. A filing deadline is a filing deadline, and no amount of preparation or foresight is going to get you out of the office with the rush-hour crowd.

When people learn of my affinity for cooking, I’m often faced with the question, “How did you learn to cook?” or “I wish I knew how to cook.” Well, I’m here to tell you that if you have ever Googled anything ever and you know how to read, you can become a master chef. All it takes is a little courageous curiosity!

6 podcasts to start your summer

6 podcasts to start your summer

June 27, 2019

Podcasts are a great way to absorb information and new ideas when you have a little downtime or find yourself multi-tasking. If you’re on the road (or in the air), getting ready for bed, or drinking coffee, a good podcast is something you can use to fill the quiet. They can make you a more compelling person, help you through a tough situation, or just teach you something you didn’t know!

This is going to be a tough read. But don’t forget, you’re tough too! There are only a few reasons why you aren’t where you want to be right now. Consistency. Endurance. Patience.

When it comes to being an adult, I’ve learned that you get to pick and choose who you surround yourself with. You are in control of your tribe!

On our shelves: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

On our shelves: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

May 16, 2019

Do you ever become super irritated at ridiculously trivial things, like dead TV remote batteries or that short stoplight by your house? Most readers may offer a guilty smirk at this moment, but the uncomfortable truth is that most of us struggle with similar irritations each day. Negative, unproductive reactions can be controlled — even eliminated! — by caring less.

What my mother taught me

What my mother taught me

May 9, 2019

I am who I am because of my mother.

In the “nature vs. nurture” psychology debate, there are two ways to determine human behavior. Nature, your genes, or nurture, personal experiences. In my mind, it’s a mix of the two with one main source: our mothers.

Pulling back the blindfold: My 30-day challenge

Pulling back the blindfold: My 30-day challenge

May 2, 2019

After starting my career, I cemented myself into a weekly routine. Wake up. Grab my morning coffee. Work about 9 to 10 hours each day. Commute home. Order Seamless. Put on Netflix. Rinse and repeat. Occasionally, I’d break from my usual weekly trance and mix things up with a trip to the gym, a cooking class, a long weekend. But never did I take a step back and reflect on the weekly decisions I made.
