It’s definitely time for a break and we are ready to relax, but before we log off for the weekend, we’re delivering #THRIVEable Friday, our weekly roundup of articles, advice and more to prep you for Monday. Stay warm!
Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.
Time-wasting Email Practices.
Is email taking over your life? It’s easy to spend hours sending and responding to emails, then realize you haven’t even started your other tasks for the day! Even if you’ve installed tools to help organize your inbox, the problem might be how you’re using it. This article from PRDaily describes five common email habits that are wasting your time, and offers easy solutions so you’re more productive at work.
Busy Bee No More.
It seems you can’t ask a friend, relative or coworker how they’re doing without hearing one word: busy. Hands up if you’ve remarked at one point “Sorry, I’ve been SO busy!” We’ve all been there, but are our schedules and to-do lists as packed as we think they are? If you want to get off the busy train and create a better work-life balance, Forbes offers helpful advice for changing how you work so you feel less crazy-busy.
Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
One of the best advantages to using Apple products is that they make it possible to sync all of your devices together (or so I’ve heard – Team Android over here). It’s already possible to read your iMessages from your phone on your MacBook or iPad, but many smartphone users also utilize other third-party communication apps such as WhatsApp. Notifyr is an app that syncs all of your apps to your Apple devices, even the third-party apps. Never miss a message or notification again!
