Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
 
Marketing blunders happen when international companies fail to consider the translations of new slogans in other languages. This is a big challenge for Apple in China, one of its top markets, as its iPhone slogans—from “This changes everything. Again” to “Bigger than bigger” to “This is 7″—sound even more banal in Chinese than they do in English.
 
"Donald Trump claims he could tell from the "body language" of his intelligence briefers that they are unhappy with President Obama, but experts say it's more likely he was seeing what he wanted to see — if he was seeing anything at all."
 
"ATA’s Certification Committee is pleased to inform all members and interested persons of some important changes in ATA’s Certification Program taking effect in 2017."
Translators & Interpreters: Thank you for being on time with your translation projects and for arriving to your interpreting assignments a few minutes prior to the scheduled time. Punctuality is an essential part of our work, a determinant of quality services and therefore, a condition to work with us. 
Empowerment Tips
 
How to Stay Focused
 
To get more done in your day to day life, you have to have more focus. Focus allows you to get clear on what you need to do and how you need to do it. 
 
Minimize Multitasking
When our focus is on multiple different tasks, we don't allow ourselves to get really present with what we are doing. When working on something, put all of your energy towards that one thing so you can regain your focus. 
 
Meditate
Slowing down your mind can actually get you refocused on the things you want to accomplish. If you are feeling overwhelmed and are having a hard time focusing, try meditating for 5-10 minutes to get clear on the things that need to get done.
 
Make a To-Do List
Having multiple things to do during the day can have your focus going all over the place. Make a list of the things you need to do and put them in order of priority. This will give you clarity on what you need to do and how to be the most effective while doing it. 
 
Exercise
Fitness isn't only good for our body, it's good for our brain too. When we exercise, our level of alertness goes through the roof and we are able to focus at a higher level. 
 
Take Breaks
Over working plays a big role in a lack of focus. When you are feeling overwhelmed, take a break, breathe deep, and get reconnected with what you need to get done. Clarity = focus. 
 
Incorporate these 5 practices into your daily routine and you will soon find that your focus will go to the next level. Focus comes from clarity and clarity comes from implementing these habits into your every day life. Get clear, take a deep breathe, and take control of your focus.
