For many of us, the struggle of this time of year is to maintain the momentum we had in January and keep it going all year in terms of productivity. With that in mind, I want to take a little time today to walk through ten things I try to do and think about when looking to maintain or increase my productivity.
As the energy of new year’s resolutions starts to fade I’m sure that you, like me, are starting to get a little daunted by all of the things that you want to accomplish this year. But, rather than giving up, I think this is a good time to take a moment and come up with some strategies that will help up stay on track. Here are ten of mine, and I hope that at least some of the mare of use to you as well.
With the start of a new year, a lot of people are making their resolutions for the coming months. There are the usual ones: people want to lose weight, kick bad habits, make more money, and so on. But, there’s a lot more to getting those things done than signing up for a gym membership and making your promises to yourself. I want to take a little bit of time today to talk about how disciplined folks build and maintain that discipline over time to accomplish the things that are important to...
When it comes to maintaining discipline, for example, to keep a New Year’s Resolution, the key to doing that is both simple, and difficult to master. The key to maintaining discipline, I find, is to develop habits that you can keep consistently, and that will help you reach your broader goals. Here are ten that I think will help you become a more disciplined person.
With at least parts of the world getting back to normal as COVID19 gets more under control, a lot of us are going back to the office. I recently did so, teaching on campus for the first time in over a year, and it’s been a bit of an adjustment. Here, I want to share some of my experiences as some tools and tips that I think will make the transition a little easier for you.
With the start of the new school year, it was pretty clear that I’d have a lot to do. Currently, I’m teaching five classes at two different universities, wrapping up my dissertation in political theory, and writing fairly actively for a number of clients. All of that, combined with maintaining a decent life and a relationship with my partner meant that I’d have to make the most of every day to make it work.
Usually, I’m not a morning person at all. I’ve never been late to work or class in...
As the Tokyo summer Olympics approach, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the most successful Olympian of all time: American swimmer Michael Phelps. He’s competed in 5 Olympic games over the course of his career, starting at the young age of 15 in Sydney, Australia. While he didn’t win any medals in Sydney, he more than made up for it in the next 4 Olympics, winning 28 total medals. Out of those 28 medals, 23 of them are Gold, and 13 of those gold medals are for individual events...
Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Whether it’s work, family, romance or the building of community, it’s all about relationships between human beings. They’re also one of the trickier parts about being a human, and doing them better is one of the ways that we can improve ourselves and the relationships that matter to us.
Here, I want to offer my thoughts on some ways that men can improve their relationships. Not all of this will be about others; in fact, most of these are things...
Running is a great way for middle aged men to get outdoors, be healthy, and even compete. If new to running be careful not to go too hard, too fast, too soon. Be patient as you work the speed and miles up so you can enjoy running longer.
