Getting Things Done Through Motivation – Thrive Global

Motivation
This article is about getting things done by riding on the back of your initial motivation. There is a window within which we need to do things/get tasks done. Particularly when it comes to working with other people. If you have a meeting for instance, try to follow up the actions you establish at the meeting (make them clear, simple and specific) within three days. If you don’t work on the weekends be mindful of the fact that that’s two days lost. If you can’t follow up within three days contact the person with/for whom you have agreed to carry out the actions and give them as accurate an estimation as you can as to how long it is going to take you to follow through. This contact is to aid continuity. In the 21st Century and particularly this age of speed, ideas, concepts and

How to Stay Motivated – Thrive Global

Motivation
Do you sometimes wonder how to stay motivated? Do you wish you could stay motivated despite obstacles and delays? Often, after the initial enthusiasm and motivation, there is a drop down of the desire and interest. What can you do to stay motivated and not lose the zest, enthusiasm and energy? The motivation to act, do things, study, pursue a goal or attain success in any area of life, often, emerges through outside triggers. The desire and the motivation might arise after watching an inspiring movie, reading a book, or talking with someone who has achieved success. However, unless the desire and ambition are very strong, the motivation that arises is often short lived. Ask yourself, how many times have you felt elated, energetic, and motivated to achieve a certain desire...

8 Modern Witches Share Their Daily Beauty Rituals – Self

Self Help
Like it or not, witches are having a moment. From the reboots of Charmed and The Craft to AMC’s A Discovery of Witches and Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the archetype of the witch is making its way right back into mainstream culture. And from pop culture to folklore, witchcraft is often depicted as arcane and dark, a world of bubbling cauldrons and crystal balls.But witchcraft means something very different to the modern day people who practice it.In general, witchcraft is a “pre-Christian, tribal tradition” practiced across the globe according to the activist, author, and ecofeminist Starhawk, as quoted in Jambalaya: The Natural Woman's Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals. She describes it as an intentional spiritual practice that enables individuals to manife

That includes Succulent Wild Woman, the book that pulled me onto the SARK bandwagon in the first place. With four dancing stick figures and a sprinkling of watercolor hearts oozing across th
