Feeling Overwhelmed? Here Is How to Take Back Control of Your Time

Alan Lakein said that “time equals life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.”

In today’s busy world, excessive commitments on our time and energy leave us frazzled and distracted. When we’re overwhelmed, it’s often because we’re swamped with busyness, overloaded with responsibility, and out of control of our time.

Tough First Quarter? Transform Your Next One In Three Easy Steps

We’ve reached the end of the first quarter, and even though we’re only three months in, you may feel that you’ve already had a busy year. It’s tempting to keep going from one quarter to the next at your current pace. The reality is that when you don’t take some time to reflect and make adjustments, the rest of your year will be the same busy and exhausting experience.

8 Simple Ways to Make Your Year Great

At the beginning of every year, many of us set New Year’s resolutions. We may go “full steam ahead” at the beginning of January only to lose our enthusiasm before we’ve even reached the end of the month. This can be demotivating and confusing because you may be trying to reach the goal that you’ve been chasing for so long.

A Season for Change: Make a Fresh Start

Socrates said that “the secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” We often associate change with the seasons, especially when winter changes to spring. We use spring season to make changes in our lives. We spring clean and declutter our spaces. We spend more time outdoors since the weather’s better. We feel re-energised and we look forward to new beginnings.

Why Your Mental Performance is Important

Michael Phelps said, “I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything.” He’s absolutely right. Many studies have shown that majority of success, or lack of success, is attributed to one’s state of mind. This means that you have the ability to achieve your goals and perform at your peak if you’re able to manage your thoughts and your mental attitude.

Make A Career Change: A Conversation with Jade Bowes

The world of work evolves constantly and at some point you might find yourself re-evaluating your career path. You might come to the conclusion that you’re in a career that still provides you with everything that you need, or you might find that you want to make a career change. Before you make the leap and make the change, it’s always best to think, plan and gather the wisdom of those who have already walked the path.

Physical Health and Fitness: A Conversation with Grant Cyster

We’ve become surrounded by conveniences that make our lives easier but these conveniences have also encouraged us to have a more inactive lifestyle. Many of us sit for most of the day, so we lack the regular exercise that we need and because we have so many life commitments, we have limited time to make the nutritious food that our bodies need. It’s important to look at how our physical health and fitness affects different areas of our lives and understand what we can do to improve and live a healthier life.

Mental Health and Wellness: A Conversation with Dr Angela L Harris

There have been so many changes that have happened globally over the past year and these changes have taken a toll on so many of us. We’ve had to adapt, re-adapt, take on more, and learn to cope as best as we can. Now more than ever it’s important to discuss mental health and wellness and understand how we can cope with ever-changing circumstances that impact our personal growth.

How Will You Grow Your Career?

“Plant your tiny seeds and keep watering them every day. Soon, they’ll grow.” ~ Israelmore Ayivor

When you understand and embrace your career path as your own, you learn to nurture and grow it with intention. Career growth is not an idle process because you need to create and look for opportunities that can help you to get to where you want to be.

What Will You Take Away From A Challenging Year?

“When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.” ~ Roy T. Bennett

We all had an unusual year that came with its own challenges. We learned how quickly things can change and impact our lives globally. We experienced change at an unprecedented rate. We’ve overcome hurdles that we didn’t know existed until it raised its head. It’s been an interesting year.

What Does Success Look Like For You?

“Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.” ~ Anne Sweeney

We’re surrounded by societal stereotypes that tell us how success should look and we’re often exposed to “one-size-fits-all” ideas of what it means to be successful in every area of our lives. The truth is that success can’t possibly look the same for everyone because we all have different backgrounds, skills, experiences, talents, circumstances, levels of exposure, intrinsic drives, goals, et cetera. On this basis, everyone should have different ideas of what success means to them.

Are You a Lifelong Learner?

“It’s essential to keep moving, learning and evolving for as long as you’re here and this world keeps spinning” ~ Rasheed Ogunlaru

Learning is a key part of life. When we learn, we grow. We build better ways of doing things. We start to think differently. We become better than we were the previous day.

Personal Values in Entrepreneurship

“Your goals and the tasks you choose to accomplish your goals either align with dream and core values or they don’t. It’s that simple.” ~ Julie Connor

The Oxford dictionary defines values as the “principles or standards of behaviour; one’s judgement of what is important in life.” Over time many of us adopt certain values from our parents and others around us. Some of those values remain with us while others don’t. Those that remain often drive many of the things that we do and the decisions that we make.

Being Your Own Manager

“Successful careers are not planned. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they know their strengths, their method of work, and their values.” ~ Peter F. Drucker

There are more and more signs that remote work and virtual meetings are becoming the new normal. This is especially true for those of us who are able to work from almost anywhere as long as we have a laptop and a Wi-Fi connection. While working remotely may be something that many of us look forward to, given the “freedom” that it brings, it’s a shift that requires a great deal of self-management.

Are You Ready To Be An Entrepreneur?

“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” – Sara Blakely

The entrepreneurial journey is an interesting, exhausting, exhilarating and confusing one. You’ll rarely come across another journey where you learn as much as you do as when you’re an entrepreneur. If you’re engaged and open to learning, you’ll discover something new every single day.

Will You Finish What You Start?

“Without commitment, you’ll never start. But more importantly, without consistency, you’ll never finish.” – Denzel Washington

This year is coming to an end and we’re getting ready to enter a new decade. Every year seems to go by faster than the last and it can easily feel as though we haven’t achieved anything. As we get ready to enjoy the year-end festivities, we may also question if we’ve accomplished anything during the year.

Are You Working On Your Personal Development?

“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.” – Abraham Maslow

This quote by Maslow reflects the importance of self-development and moving forward. It emphasises that personal growth is ongoing and must be actively pursued. This process of growing and progressing in different areas of our lives is called personal development.
