And with the pandemic increasing our workloads and uncertainty of the future, I also felt my anxiety and stress at times keeping me up late at night, sometimes up until 3:00 am.

How To Stop Meeting Fatigue And Being Overbooked

Before Zoom fatigue there was meeting burnout. The more responsibilities you have, the busier you become. The running joke I hear often from my clients is that if you have a calendar flooded with meetings, you must be in management. Now, a year into the pandemic, things somehow got worse for everyone — more back-to-back calls, double-booked meetings and too many check-ins that could have been handled over emails.

Hi, I’m Kendall. I’m a results coach who believes that our most intractable problems can begin to unfurl when we try one thing at a time.

8 Creative & Sustainable Innovators You Should Follow For Earth Day (PART 1)

It’s no news that online shopping has been supercharged by the pandemic overall. But it’s not all glory for all retails and outlets.

Are you thinking about those who are able to bounce back, failure after failure, mistake after mistake? Does it remind you of outliers (Malcolm Gladwell), grit paragons (Angela Lee Duckworth) or originals (Adam Grant)?

Why We Created GIFs for Innovators

Creativity is often misunderstood to be manifested only through hands-on artistic output. I’m here to debunk that myth. Creativity is everywhere and is far beyond just painting, playing instruments, dancing to acting even though I love these domains as someone who is in music school at Berklee Music School pursuing my music business degree.
