Ideas on how to get organized and make the most out of our days
 
We can all use extra help to organize our days in a better way.
 
Some quick tips that may help you to avoid missing assignments or important deadlines:
  • Eat healthy and exercise (yes, it has a lot to do with your day to day efficiency) 
  • Keep your desk clean and clutter free, eliminate paperwork that is not in use
  • Use only ONE calendar (instead of multiple places) to write down your interpreting assignments, translation projects or any other tasks you may have
  • Keep a list of personal and business goals
  • Master the allocation of your time, one minute gone is gone for good. 
  • Delegate when these 3 elements are missing: relevance, passion, skills
  • Avoid multi-tasking, you will make mistakes
  • Eliminate excuses, they are debilitating and become a habit
  • Appreciate what you have

Empowerment Tips
 
How to Stay on Track
 
Have you ever had a hard time staying on track with the goals you set out to achieve? I'm sure that diet you started is harder than you anticipated or the finance plan is a little more complex than you hoped. We all get taken off course, here are some of the most effective ways to get back on track:
 
Make a Plan
For the most part, when we are feeling off track, it is because we don't have a clear plan of action. Create an in depth plan for what you want to do and stick to it! Get in the habit of following a plan and you will see results in no time. 
 
Celebrate Your Wins
When setting out to achieve a goal, we often times forget to celebrate our victories. No matter how small, take time to celebrate how far you have come and the accomplishments you have been able to create. 
 
Take a Break
Working hard is great and a necessary part of any goal, but when we don't take breaks, we tend to burn out. You will double your productivity if you train yourself to take small breaks throughout your day to recharge. Take a breather, I promise you will get more done. 
 
Set Milestones
Some goals you have may seem next to impossible to complete. A great way to keep consistent is to set milestones for your progression. When you break down a one year goal into 6 milestones, it becomes a lot more clear on how to get there.
 
We will all experience times where we feel like we have strayed away from our intended path. Put these strategies into play so when it does happen you can just take a deep breath and get re-aligned with where you're going.
