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.

The Difference Between Strategy And Tactics And How To Use Them Effectively Together

When you play a board game, we’re using a combination of strategy and tactics to win. Let’s take Checkers. When you play checkers you’re thinking strategically — Which pieces should I move first? Which piece is my opponent going to move next? If I skip them now, will that put me in a position to be skipped even more? And you’re also playing tactfully by actually moving the pieces.

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. There’s been some obvious winners, like Jeff Bezos’ behemoth has emerged stronger than ever.

Or those who went through all kinds of trials and tribulations and got awarded with sweet success? 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)?
