Make learning a lifestyle with the 5-hour rule

September 12, 2019

As we move into the busy months of fall, fresh off a summer of fun, the days get shorter and schedules get more chaotic. Coming home from a long day of work and other responsibilities can mean relief. You’ve made it through another day, and now it’s time to veg out in front of the TV. A few deep breaths later and you’re more than just a few episodes into the latest Netflix Original.

Motivation killers and what to do about them

September 5, 2019

We all have our days when just rolling out of bed takes everything we’ve got. Are you tired and burned out? Have you set the right goals for yourself? Do you find yourself thinking you could be doing something else that provides more challenge and stimulation? Are you scared of something? Any of these things can be demotivating, but finding the source and addressing it can make getting out of a bed a lot easier.

August 29, 2019

At some point, we’re all going to have to work on a team. From family, to friend groups, to project teams at work, the need to cooperate with others is inevitable.

Why we procrastinate and what to do about it

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.

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.

Taking time for yourself, or what a lot of people are recently calling “self-care”, isn’t a new idea and it also needs to be something that we think of constantly, not just when we’re overwhelmed. (It’s also not just for women, guys.)
