We all have 24 hours per day. But why does it seem as if other people can accomplish more in those same hours than you? Can they control time?
You can become a master of your own time too. Take a look at the tips below to get started and change your life!
The first thing that you have to do in order to develop an effective time management routine is to audit that time you have. You must make yourself aware of how you spend your time so you can understand where you're wasting it.
You might think you're only spending ten minutes a day checking your emails, but when you look closer, you will realize that you are spending more time than you should. There are several software programs you can use to keep track of your time. With this information in hand, it will be much easier to make the...
The world has become smaller in this age of technology. The internet has allowed people from across the globe to stay in contact with each other. The advent of technology has made it possible for people to build interactive relationships with more advanced interfaces.
What was once simply living has turned into something a little bit more complicated. People now have online and offline lives. We rely on various social media platforms for work and even more so for personal socialization. Actual face-to-face interaction has been minimized compared to people’s virtual presence.
It is undeniably true how much apps and online technology has made people’s lives easier. What used to take months to process now only takes minutes or seconds to complete. While it comes with many benefits, technology has also taken away the joy that comes with direct interaction. Team productivity through community interaction has lessened. People are more apt to work...
What does it mean to have a fear of being left out? Do you feel bad when you can't say "yes" to opportunities that come your way, even if you're already stretched thin? It can be depressing.
But the truth is that saying "no" to opportunities that come your way is not as bad as you think. What is actually wrong is when you say "yes" to too many things, and you end up overloaded.
When you are doing too many things at the same time just because you want to prove that you can do it all, that's when it becomes a problem. Even when you're doing too much, the fear of not doing enough eats at you. This is the fear of missing out, or FOMO.
You may be asking yourself, "Why does it feel like there is something missing in my life?" Too much exposure to social media has got you thinking about what others have. It has forced you to compare your life to the life of those around you.
When you learned that a good friend...
What's the only thing stopping you from reaching your goals? More than likely, it's you. The limitations you put on yourself are the only things standing in your way. When you know your limits, and guard them without wanting to push them, you stay safe.
But then again, there is no growth when you don't push yourself to the limits. You remain where you are. You feel protected in your comfort zone, but you don't progress.
Whenever you feel curious about something, and you want to learn, things become harder to achieve. Whether it is fear, doubt, or a physical condition that keeps you from getting what you want, it can present itself as a barrier to exploring what else you can be.
Unfortunately, not everyone has a chance to work past their limitations. Whenever things become uncertain, they feel threatened and simply give up. You have to ask yourself, "How far are am I willing to go to reach my goals?"
It really depends on how well you handle the situation....
Do you feel like you’re too busy with work, but your life and career aren’t moving forward? Does it feel like everything that you do is just a way to pass the time? Does it feel like you’ve been working for things that don’t really matter?
You’re great at completing tasks and getting things done. In fact, you take your job seriously. That’s why you hate it when work piles up. You may even have a task tracker that helps you complete every assignment before they are due. And yet, at the end of each workday, you think, “Was there something you could have done better?”
Your work ethic is not a problem. Rather, the problem is finding meaning in the things that you do. When you think that your job or everyday responsibilities are meaningless, then doing them and accomplishing them won’t give you a sense of fulfillment.
Many people believe that having a fulfilling job is a luxury reserved for the very lucky or very wealthy. This...
Do you struggle with holding grudges? Are you still hung up on a relationship that ended several years ago? We all have certain things or emotions that we have to let go of. Whether it is unrequited love, desire, anger, or yearning for something or someone, all of these make it challenging to move on from the things that are not meant to be.
Is it possible to let go of everything? It is possible, but the longer you hold on to negative emotions, the more they will hurt. Letting go is in itself an art form. It can be empowering, but only when you have truly given up what's not meant for you. Moving on is critical to achieving more success and opening yourself to love in the future.
How do you get over something? How do you tell yourself, "I need to move on in order to have a better life"? Unless you teach yourself the art of letting go, you will always find yourself disappointed, stressed, or in deep pain. You may scare away potential romantic relationships...
You’ve probably heard the term “emotional exhaustion” a couple of times in the past. You might have even wondered if you’ve experienced it in the past or if you’re experiencing it now.
The phrase “burnout” is often associated with a person’s physical burnout. It is when a person physically feels tired about socially interacting with other people. Emotional exhaustion, on the other hand, is when one experiences a period of excessive stress at work and in their personal life.
When people experience loneliness, tiredness, and stress altogether, they find themselves emotionally exhausted. It makes them feel like they do not feel anything anymore. They become overwhelmed by all the responsibilities expected of them. They are tired, and their body experiences fatigue.
These feelings tend to build up over a long period of time. But when people get tired, they may stop taking care of themselves, and they may no longer see the...
Success in life does not come in a straight road. Some may be lucky to have their successful future carved for them. However, others have to rely on their life experiences to teach them a thing or two before they're able to advance.
Often during the journey of life, we face detours, blocked roads, and dead ends. It takes determination and tenacity to be able to push yourself to keep going. However, it's important to know that just because someone finds themself at the brink of success, the victory itself doesn't make them a good or a better person. They are strong people because they allowed themselves to be shaped by the trials they faced. They developed resilience.
Do you consider yourself a resilient person? You must have heard the story of Thomas Edison and how he invented the lightbulb. In his day, he was ridiculed for failing to achieve . . . well, anything. And yet when he did, he told everyone that he did not discover how to make a light bulb. Rather, he discovered...
Star Wars 9! End of an Era! I guess it seems like many are happy it’s over. Rotten tomatoes, 52% OOF!
Despite that, the new films lack a cohesive plot bridging them all together, Star Wars since it’s very beginning has been steeped in spiritual symbolism, such as the name Jedi seemingly linked to the fictional Egyptian magician named Djedi, and the concept of the force itself based on Taoism. I mean, I’m not the only one who reads the Tao Te Ching and imagines Lao Tzu as a little hairy green man, right? *crickets*
So the rise of skywalker! Let’s break it down!
Oh, btw’s, Spoiler warning, but you knew that already didn’t you?
The movie begins with Rey meditating and gently levitating. She’s asking, “Be with me, be with me; be with me.” Calling to presumably Luke or the other Jedi to support her. Very soon, she says, “You’re not with me” with reluctance, and returns with disappointment...
What is an aspect of your life that you want to change? Does it feel challenging to make that change? Making a considerable switch and taking on a shift of perspective is always tricky in the beginning. No matter what kind of change you want to take on, it’s still going to be difficult.
You may be asking yourself, “Is it possible to make a change for life?”
Remember this: making a shift in your life, no matter how old you are, is possible if you want it to be. Whether it is big or small, change always brings about something new.
It is not going to be easy, but it is going to be worth it. In fact, it can be messy at times, but it will be worth taking the shot. As long as you want to make that shift, you can always make it happen.
How does change happen in your life? Here are some of the steps you may encounter when changing your life.
