How to Turn Down Tasks Without Actually Having to Say “No”

By Joe Rando on May 26, 2020

I always try to see the best in people. In my mind, people are generally good and want to help. While this perspective has served me well for the most part, it can lead to problems in certain situations.

What Exactly Is Life Empowerment Technology?

By Carly Ries on May 14, 2020

Have you ever had a happy hour (or virtual happy hour) where the conversation starts to remind you of a movie? Listening to my friends chat back and forth, the two movies that come to mind frequently are Groundhog Day and Office Space, and I think the reason for that is that nobody seems to have control over their own lives and schedules. They became slaves to deadlines, working around spouses schedules, helping their kids with homework, and so on. And while they don’t necessarily mind doing those things, it was clear they weren’t always the ones calling the shots on how to spend their time. Essentially, they just needed more time back in their days.

How To Take Back Your Life While Working Remotely

By Joe Rando on May 8, 2020

 

3,2,1...Happy New Year!

The clock struck midnight on not only a new year, but a new decade. We all used the pun that we’d start to see things clearly in 2020, but the lens we used to reach that clarity was far different than anything any of us could have imagined.

As the news broke about coronavirus in Wuhan, China, many watched it play out on the news with a heavy heart for those impacted, but thought, “that’s so far away, that probably won’t impact my life too much, right?” Clearly, wrong.

And as we’ve seen, nothing could have actually been further from the truth.

Finding the Value in Being Unproductive

By Carly Ries on May 6, 2020

It’s hard to not find the irony of me writing a post about being unproductive given the fact that our team has been working around the clock to get LifeStarr out and into the world for you. However, with all of this productivity, it’s allowed me to truly appreciate and find value in the unproductive moments, because truth be told, without them, my achievements would have never happened in the first place.

Collaboration In the Workplace Has Changed - It's Time to Adapt

By Joe Rando on May 4, 2020

“Two minds are greater than one.”

“There’s no ‘I’ in team.”

We’ve all heard these quotes and they exist for a reason: true collaboration is hard, so we all need some motivation to make sure we’re doing it right.

Collaborating successfully during normal times is challenging enough, so if you and your team are struggling during these unsettling times, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

With coronavirus sweeping the world, it’s hard to say what the workforce will look like weeks, months, or even years from now, but what we do know is that it has changed and we need to adapt.

Reevaluating Goals During Turbulent Times

By Carly Ries on April 13, 2020

I was never one for New Year’s resolutions. 

Let me rephrase. I was never one for keeping New Year's resolutions. 

I’d always been a go-getter professionally, but when it came to those traditional, self-imposed goals (run a marathon, quit social media, yada yada yada), I always seemed to drop the ball.

I tried all the various tactics to improve my chances of achieving them but nothing really stuck, and after years of trial and error, I finally figured out why that is.
