Without gratitude and appreciation for what you already have, you’ll never know true fulfillment. But how do you cultivate balance in life? What’s the point of achievement if your life has no balance?

Time Management

By Kevin Daum

There never seems to be enough time. Here are six tips for making the most of what little you have.

Once again Spring came around and messed with my time clock.  Even though I know I still have the same number of hours in the day, I can’t help but feel that Daylight Savings Timehas stolen an hour from me. My body clock still thinks it’s 7 a.m. when I wake up, and yet here it is 8 a.m. Sure, I have more daylight, but for the most part, the only light I need for my productivity is the glow of my computer.

5 Scientifically Proven Ways to Work Smarter, Not Harder

Post It NotesBy Jeff Haden

Try one. Try them all. They work. Science says so.

You work really hard. In fact, you might not be able to work any harder. But you can still work smarter.

Here are five ways anyone can work smarter from Belle Beth Cooper, content crafter atBuffer, the social media management tool that lets you schedule, automate, and analyze social-media updates. (She’s also co-founder of Exist.)

Here’s Beth:

One of the things I love about the culture at Buffer is the emphasis on working smarter, not harder. Our team is all about getting plenty of sleep, exercise, and recreation time, so our time spent working is as productive as it can be.

Working harder can be an easy habit to slip into, though. Sometimes it’s hard to switch off at the end of the day or take time out on the weekend and stop thinking about work. With a startup of my own to run, I find this even harder to manage. Whenever I’m not working on Buffer I’m working on Exist, and it’s easy to fall into a pattern of “always working” rather than working smart. [Read more…]

What I Learned About Achieving Goals and How to Achieve Yours

Stay On TargetBehind every achieved goal, there’s a story about our own personal development.  It is a manifestation of experiences, challenges, and our inner abilities all accumulating to one glorious moment, marking off a goal from your “to-achieve list”.

Every goal is a test; a test of willpower, courage, and intellect. But what really sets apart people who are able to reach their goals from those who cave in?

Since achieving most noteworthy goals takes some time, it’s quite difficult to isolate the exact cause that allows some people to achieve their goals and prevents others from achieving theirs.

So let’s ask ourselves a few questions first.  Hopefully by the end of this post, we’ll have a broader understanding of what it takes to achieve our own goals. [Read more…]

9 Things Really Productive People Refuse to Do

BY 

commuting-train-1940x900_34117Being more productive isn’t just about what you do. It’s about what you refuse to do.

If you want to be more productive, don’t start by taking on new habits and routines. Instead, do less. The most productive people know how to stay focused and how to say no–but most importantly, they know how to delegate and outsource.

To get a handle on the time-sucking, productivity-killing tasks you should always hand off to others, I reached out to a variety of sources, including the folks at Zirtual, an online virtual assistant service. Here are the top things you should avoid, if you want to spend your time on what’s really important: [Read more…]
