Make learning a lifestyle with the 5-hour rule

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.

3 collaboration best practices for home and work

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

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!
