Learn How to Manage Yourself, Not Your Time with Nan Russell By Dr. Paula Joyce

Conventional wisdom says: to succeed, you must work long hours. In fact, our brain needs regular breaks to function at its best. Recently a friend asked me, “What’s the one thing you’ve done this year to create more energy?” My answer surprised me: “I allow myself to stop working when I hit an energy wall.” I recognize my thoughts now, like, “I’m tired, but I want to cross this off my list.” Yes, I could push through my low energy and get a second wind. In the morning, I could ignore the fact that I’m tired, down my coffee and convince myself I’m fine. There is a price to pay, however, and it’s a high one. We can do this every now and then but eventually we deplete our energy. A much more effective strategy is to remind ourselves that almost everything can wait. These days I ask myself: “What will happen if this doesn’t get done today?” The answer is almost always “nothing.” Please listen to the On Demand show  to Learn How to Manage Yourself, Not Your Time.

Alive, Awake and Aware

alive, awake aware cover

Are you alive, awake and aware? Think about it. We hear these words tossed around a lot these days, so much so that we may not think about what they really mean. In this crazy, cyber-driven, fast paced society, it’s easy to become so caught up in “the mental noise within your mind [that]has disallowed you to be aware of its existence until now.” You breathe, you have blood running through your veins and your mind thinks, but are you truly “alive” or are you simply existing? Your eyes are seeing, ears are hearing, legs walking but are you “awake” in the true sense of the word or are you sleep walking your way through life, hardly realizing who you are and what’s going on around you? Christopher Pinckley says, “Your authentic nature is one of a multidimensional, expanded, boundless, limitless, peaceful, loving, and universally intelligent capacity.” Does that describe you? Join us to hear what he has to say about becoming alive, awake and aware.
