Finally, Iâ€™m starting my workweek!
After an entire week of downtime, virtually doing NOTHING and feeling worthless, Iâ€™m only too glad to be
making money err, working again.
Speaking of feeling worthless and for what itâ€™s worth for women who love to multi-task, Iâ€™m listing here what I think I should do, and what I believe are essential for staying in tip-top shape, productivity-wise.
I believe that productivity is not a matter of pushing yourself to the limit. Rather, itâ€™s a matter of getting that work-life balance thing down pat.
I think King Solomon got it right when he said that there is a â€œTime for everything.â€ When he said that balance is key (paraphrase), he actually summed up the essentials in life.
He is also backed by other thinkers and philosophers who actually agree that in life, balance is the key to well-being.
I had disagreed with that, vehemently, as I had actually lived by The Corrsâ€™ philosophy: â€œ[And] it really doesnâ€™t matter if we donâ€™t eat, and it really doesnâ€™t matter if we never sleep..â€ Because I felt, well, â€œSo Youngâ€. :p
However, that is not the case. I am 23, and while others my age need their weekend parties to recharge for another workweek, I realized I needed my sabbaths. Being an extrovert, I feed off other peopleâ€™s energies and attention. And so, I needed to be around like-minded people who could encourage me, and, well, pray for me.
Next post (Wednesday) will discuss my tips on how to make sure you are more productive by taking breaks and some other health measures. Meanwhile, itâ€™s wishlist time once again. 😀
Well, I am a firm believer that laughter is the best medicine. The gift of wholesome comedy had been my salvation in times of the deepest stress possible, so if youâ€™re not a fan just yet, I suggest you troop on over to HappySlipâ€™s homepage, and see why there are so many of us who are rabid fans of hers.
Meanwhile, my wishlist item for today is… A HappySlip DVD! I am praying I can get this for myself soon.. Itâ€™s just 5 cents shy of $30, and for a 2-disc DVD set worth only three Skype reloads, I believe this is soo worth it. 😉 If you’re feeling a little Scrooge-y, then there’s the Season One highlights DVD, which costs only $19.95.
Not bad, when it’s just the price of a standard DVD anyway. 😀
A little over a week to Christmas, everyone! 😉
