You know the angel and devil scenario where they are sitting on shoulders persuading you to do only the things that angels and devils are required to do while sitting on your shoulders? Well, I had a situation like that about a month ago, however it had nothing to do with doing right or wrong and had everything to do with weight loss. Here’s how it started, I’m sitting between two friends during a recent lunch we shared together. These two friends happen to be complete opposites with regards to their body type. The lunch time discussion ended up giving me a very interesting observation with regards to body weight and weight loss, and what each of these friends expected for themselves.The first friend has finally gotten herself hooked on an exercise and diet program. Sh
Flushing Meadows is all but empty, the fans that bayed for Bianca Andreescu's demise in the second set have long departed and, in the players' lounge in Arthur Ashe Stadium, the US Open champion is at ease and very much excited. Andreescu is excited not because she's still revelling in winning her first grand slam title, though that is unquestionably also the case. Instead the 19-year-old is abuzz because she is sat around a table with a group of reporters and has just been asked if she has recommendations for self-help books. "Where's my phone?!" she enthusiastically shouts. "I have all the books I've read on my phone." After that extremely modern statement, Andreescu is handed her phone and frantically scrolls through her reading list in search of a book she cannot remember the nam...
Emphasis on Self-Care to then turn to help others, not only right but healthy By: Paul P. Jesep*/TRT Columnist— In offering spiritual direction, I’ve spoken with folks who are stressed, overwhelmed, and sometimes near burnout. In some cases, there is a sense of hopelessness. Life can take its toll on anyone. Hence, actively pursuing “self-care” is a must. You cannot be the best wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, or good friend if you don’t take care of yourself. Self-care sounds selfish, but it is “selfless.” I’ve often heard it said, “I don’t have time to do something for myself.” Wrong. You do have the time if you make it a priority. No matter how stressed or over-extended, I’ve never heard anyone say they didn’t have time to shower or brush their teeth once a day. You make it part
“We want to be more agile in our delivery.” “We need to build up our teams.” “How can we do Scrum well?” Companies are asking themselves these questions every day and looking in various places for the answers.Instead of looking at processes, checklists or specific methodologies, let’s talk about what organizations and teams are made of: people. If we want to have great organizations, we need to have thriving teams. In order to have thriving teams, we need to have motivated individuals.How do we even begin to find, develop and retain motivated individuals? The good news is, agility has mechanisms, mindsets and ideals already built in to motivate team members and give them purpose in their everyday work.So, I know what you’re thinking: Oh great, another millennial writing a blog post abou
With hundreds of self-help books lining the shelves of local bookstores, and hundreds of thousands more online, finding the one that’s right for you can be a daunting task. You could try each one to see what works, or you can simply read one book written by someone who spent the better part of a decade trying every “fix” from the SIBO diet to the Artist’s Way to the KonMari Method. Written by celebrity ghostwriter and New York Post columnist Stephanie Krikorian, Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken) is a hilarious, relatable “anti-self-help” book that turns the new age wellness industry on its head as its author learns to bet on herself. After losing her job as a TV news producer during the 2008 recession, Krikorian found a career in cele
Executive Summary Deadlines help us prioritize our work and get it done on time. But how do you get started on a project that doesn’t have one? Try giving yourself a target end date, establishing a certain amount of time to work on the project each week, or taking one step toward completion each day. Hold yourself accountable by enlisting support. When you tell someone your time frame for completing the work and send them updates regularly, you have a greater incentive to make progress. Finally, incentivize yourself. Give yourself a reward for the work you do, take away something you enjoy if you don’t complete your task as planned, or set yourself up to enjoy your time while working. Motivating yourself to do non-deadline tasks is a challenge, but it’s not insurmountable.
