what to do when your day is full of meetings

what to do when your day is full of meetings

I’ve been working at my new job for a month now , and the one takeaway I have going from working from home to working in a collaborative environment is… there sure are a lot of meetings. Meetings are pretty much necessary to achieve my goals at work, whether I’m working with one of the students or meeting with a client about their marketing needs. But it can definitely be hard to get anything done on my to do list when…

a better way to multitask

a better way to multitask

For the longest time, I was convinced that I could multitask with the best of them. I shunned all of the productivity experts who swore multitasking was not possible or achievable, and I didn’t even consider any advice on how to multitask and how not to. I was a successful multitasker, and that was that. Of course, in recent years, I’ve identified many reasons why I shouldn’t have been multitasking all this time. Maybe it’s just as I’ve gotten older and my…

7 things to do before you leave work for the day

7 things to do before you leave work for the day

In the last few weeks, I’ve realized the last things you do to finish your workday are just as important as the things you do to start your workday. And I’ve found that this applies both when you work from home and when you work in an office. Whether I realized it or not when I worked from home, the way I ended my workday had a significant impact on how my next day started. I’ve noted a few things I…

how to be more respectful of your own time

how to be more respectful of your own time

I know that time management is not everyone’s forte. Some people are infinitely better at it than others, and many of us default to being busy instead of being productive. But life is more about being busy for the sake of being busy. I’m working on training myself to stop replying to, “How are you doing?” with any sentence that involves the word “busy.” Instead, I’m trying to be productive, work towards my goals and value my own time –…

the benefits of batch tasking

the benefits of batch tasking

If you, like me, find yourself with a full to do list that runs the gamut, you’re probably looking for a better way. Because there has to be a better way, right? And there is. Instead of working your way through your to do list, from No. 1 to No. 1,000 (OK, my to do list isn’t usually that long), have you tried batch tasking. Let’s talk about what batch tasking is and how to do it, because it can truly…

How to jumpstart your mornings when you work at home

How to jumpstart your mornings when you work at home

I will be the first to admit that I am not really a morning person. I am so far from a morning person, you wouldn’t believe it, and I would love to know how to be a morning person. But for now, there isn’t a single part of me that enjoys mornings. Well, maybe I have nothing against mornings – but I do hate waking up! I love to be asleep, y’all. And when I read blog posts or articles about…

How to take control of your calendar, so you can get more done

How to take control of your calendar, so you can get more done

I wish I could say that a lot of people walk up to me throughout the day and ask me how to get more done every day. That doesn’t happen, but in my head, it does. What I do hear every day, whether it’s said directly to me or it’s mentioned when I’m walking past someone or I overhear it in my workplace, is people saying, “I have so much to do.” Followed by, “I don’t have enough time.” I have…

Love books? Here’s how to read more of them

Love books? Here’s how to read more of them

Reading is my happy place. I love bookstores, and I love having books in my home, and of course, I love reading books. When I was little, my parents used to take me to Barnes & Noble in Wilmington once every few weeks; I would grab a pile of books, and I would almost always finish one before we got home. (It was an hour drive back home.) When I started college, I was too busy to read, but I…

book review: How To Get Sh*t Done

book review: How To Get Sh*t Done

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I fell hard and fast for How To Get Sh*t Done by Erin Falconer. If you haven’t heard about this book, I’m not too surprised – I found it for the first time myself on Audible, and I haven’t seen anyone else talking about it. However, if you consider yourself an incredibly busy woman with big goals, you should be talking about it and you should be listening to it or reading it. The tagline of How…
