I am guilty of this. Always cancelling on people because "I am just so busy". But actually, I just manage my time wrong.
Sure, there are periods when you are *actually* super busy: deadlines looming, social events, etc.
However, it's so important to prioritise. Do the important (however you wish to define it) first, and work your way through the list.
One thing I know for sure: time with family and friends is imperative - don't neglect those special moments.

Many women are putting more of their effort into a job that just “makes sense" rather than the work they're meant to do. Why? This job is related to their degree, or it pays well, or it’s stable, or they just fell into it & it’s what they’ve been doing for years. If that’s you, what about the work that’s been on your heart for like ever? The work that you were meant to share with others & that you do pretty dag gone well? That thing that friends & family say comes naturally to you? We can easily find ourselves letting the busy-ness of that main job make you neglect your real Work. So this year, let’s change that! 👊🏽
This pledge may not be for you because you’re already rippin’ & runnin’ with your true Work. But there’s someone in your life that could use this encouragement. Someone who’s frustrated and tired of being a round peg trying to fit in a square hole—or a lioness being expected to meow like a house cat at the job, instead of ROAR because that's what's in her. 🦁 Forward it on—encourage her!🤜🏽🤛🏽
💥Girl, it’s time for you to quit that job! New podcast ep is live! Tune in to hear the story! 🎙

Nothing wrong with shooting for the stars ✨
Too many lessons to be learned here
Better to be one hour early, than to be one minute late!
Hi. Welcome to my page. These are Interviewing Tips that will help you with your job search.
Anyone else feel like you worked more these past two weeks than all of 2018 combined? Trying to maintain #worklifebalance
but also keeping up at work is a challenge. Here are some ways I’ve been trying to manage:
📞1. Don’t overpromise if you know meeting a deadline is not likely to happen. It’s best to manage your client or bosses expectations by communicating accurate time frames.
🏃♀️2. Take periodic breaks. If you have time to go workout or have a meal with a friend or even just take a lap outside if you are pressed for time—disconnecting your brain for a little bit will help you come back to your work refreshed.
⏰3. Only check work emails after hours when you know you have something very important you are working on. If it’s usual work flow, and no one is waiting on you immediately—it can wait till normal business hours. .
Let me know if you try these or have any ways that work for you below in the comments ❤️

Can you tell I got bored today? 😂 I hope your day has been going well. And with those niceties out of the way, let’s get on with this straightforwardly gorgeous reveal with no reversals 🤩
🔥 King of Wands
🍷 3 of Cups
💫 The Star
🐉 7 of Cups
🔥 Flame on. Fire up. I normally don’t see the King this way, but I’m getting seriously magical vibes from this powerful, sexy man. The Queen is often the Witch of the tarot, but the King gets less of that love. Embrace that inner fire and send it out into the world. You can make your dreams come true with this kind of energy behind you. Get after it.
🍻 Cheers to you! The 3 of Cups is a card of harmonious relationships and the deep waters of love that family and long-term friends often share. Find your fam and take time to celebrate. You don’t have to go out on the town or get drinks if that’s not your thing—at-home, talkback movie nights and game nights are wonderful ways to relax and reconnect—but don’t fear letting loose in safe company just because it’s a “school night” (what I still call evenings before going to work despite being almost twenty years out of high school). 💫 She’s a guiding light.The Star signals hope because stars offer a way out of darkness, easily charted by those who know what they’re looking for. This can be true for those who follow the threads of fate we can find through astrology. I don’t think the future or our whole being is written in the stars, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something in them worth checking out. In this edgy deck, I also associate the Star with Las Vegas and Los Angeles, all the gritty glitter of chance. They hold so much potential for good & bad, but the dream (or nightmare) can be enough to get us moving in the direction we need. You might not get what you came for (who can reach the stars?), but it’s worth shooting for. Also, Aquarius season is coming.
🐉 Much like the potential riches and disaster promised by LA and Las Vegas (see The Star), the 7 of Cups is all about what could be. In this case, you’re picking blindly, and you could be deluding yourself about the risks and rewards ⤵️ CONTINUED in Comments
Let's set this Empress right. Here's the reveal for Monday's 3-card pick-a-card with the Zillich Tarot by @zillichchristine
. We've got some 8s to deal with here (even though the Moon's 1 + 8 add up to 9), and there's a bigger idea in those 8s about getting wrapped up in things for good or ill. Excessive investment could energize you or choke your progress, so you might need to take a step back and reassess.
🌗 The Moon
🌈 8 of Wands
🥀 8 of Swords
🌗 This deck's Moon is all about seeing the light in the darkness, not unlike the Moon's numerological buddy, the Hermit. The last time I used this deck on here, I also drew the Moon for it, and its message about feeling the pain before that moment of awakening still stands. Sorry. But given the Moon's ties to the unconscious and darkness, you might find some creative flow in that pain and those shadows. If you're stuck there anyway, you might as well get something out of it. Remember the adage about the three sightless folk and the elephant, you might pick miss some details when you're not able to see the full picture, but you'll pick up on some perspective-altering details that will help you "see" things in a new light. When you see that light, you know it's time to emerge from the dark waters of your creative unconscious.
🌈 The Zillich uses the Thoth system of giving names to specific minor arcana. The Eight of Wands is Swiftness, and its card shows the excitement and energy of swift action as only the Wands can deliver it. The rainbow shows the full range of possibilities, those seen and unseen (or even visible to the human eye), and it carries the spirited Iris wherever she wants to travel. The rainbow typically appears as an arc (a bow) in the sky, but when not broken by a horizon, a rainbow can be a multi-hued circle.

Have a favorite spot in your city? Comment below and I’ll shout out on IG stories! #workinggirl
Happy Monday! I want to start this week off by talking about what I do to start my week RIGHT!
This is so important to me to wake up on a Monday morning and feel like I’m AHEAD - knowing EXACTLY what I need to do to make my week a productive one.
How do I achieve that?
🔸I plan my weekly schedule out the day before. That way I have my goals set, to-do list put together, days planned and I’m ready to roll!
🔸I go to bed early on Sundays (earlier than usual) - deep and healthy sleep gives me the rest I need. Plus an early bed time helps me wake up early as well. That way I have plenty of time in the morning for my “Happy Veronika” routine.
🔸I start my day with gratitude (not only Mondays, but every single day)
🔸I have a healthy breakfast (that’s a MUST). I’m huge foodie plus I need that good energy to power through the day.
🔸I do something that makes me happy! Whatever it is I feel like doing that morning.
By the time I get to the office I’m positive, happy, fulfilled, excited and ready to do MY WORK!
I care deeply about my calling that’s why I do whatever it takes to feel inspired and abundant so I can pour my best energy into MY WORK!
Having a truly happy Monday sets the mood and tone for my entire week! Tested and proven.
What do you do to start your week on the right foot? Please share your wisdom in the comments below!
Итак, 2019 год уже во всю идёт и мы почти дошли до экватора января. Но все ли мы настроились на рабочий лад и готовы творить чудеса? 😁
Если нет, то вот парочка советов, как настроиться на работу:
- я отключаюсь от внешних раздражителей. В этом мне помогает музыка в наушниках и лимитирование использования телефона (для этого есть специальные арки);
- если у меня в работе есть сложные или крупные проекты - то я "ем слона по кусочкам";
- выполняю задачи "спринтами" и обязательно устанавливаю реальные сроки, которые будут соблюдены;
- ставлю себе в задачи парочку легковыполнимых целей, чтобы "разогреться и разогнаться" 🙂
- если мы работаем в команде, то обязательно нужно дать заряд уверенности всем. Никто не хочет получить невыполнимый проект в начале года 🙂
Figuring out your work life balance can be hard but, it’s a necessary practice to keep from overworking yourself! 💆🏽♀️ #emiliejerard
