Have you ever told yourself, "If I can just get through the next day/week/month/year, things will calm down and I'll be less busy?" Trust me on this -- you're never going to find time for a fitness program. If you want time, you have to make it, then take it.

As a business, dealing with assholes can be annoying. As a small business, dealing with assholes can be derailing -- if we let them. And we know firsthand that they will try. It's taken me years of practice, and sadly, much too much experience to even feel like I have enough expertise in this department to write this "how to" post.

Think of the things you really want to do in your career and in life. That's your bucket list. Now, what will you have to get rid of in order to make that stuff happen? That's your fuck it list. One serves the other. Is there something you can ditch to serve your greater vision? Fuck it.

Do you know how many emails you get each day that you shouldn't be receiving? When I teach my time management programs, I ask this and very rarely does anyone know the answer. For those of you allergic to details you are probably wondering why these details matter. They matter because they add up to a more efficient use of your time.

As we go through life, we are often told to open ourselves up to opportunities, to not limit ourselves, to say "yes" to new experiences, to meeting new people and to stepping out of our comfort zone. People tell us that there's joy in abundance and that it's good to have it all. But there's power in saying "no."

The number one thing holding women back from making their dream happen wasn't money, or fear, or not knowing where to start. It was time, by a wide margin. Weighed down by prioritizing family, spouses, parents, work, and just about everything else except themselves, these women couldn't wedge a little personal adventure time in edgewise.

Small and medium sized companies mistakenly believe hackers will not target them because they are small. The reality is that hackers come in all shapes and sizes.

Working retail or serving wasn't exactly what you had planned when you were a little kid but right now it's a great way to earn some cash-sometimes even a lot of cash. If you're willing to work long nights and chat up your customers, serving could earn you lots in tips. If you have some retail experience, get a job in managing. This is great on a resume to show your organizational and teamwork skills.

3 Reasons Why You Should Actually Network Less

Networking is all about building relationships, but if you're building relationships with the wrong people, you're wasting your time. Think quality, not quantity. Any time I do a speaking gig I make sure I'm either paid appropriately or that the audience is made up of my ideal clients (who end up hiring me and, thus, I get paid indirectly).

The return of the watch -- in the form of Apple Watch -- will bring us a far more entrenched "management" than those Rolexes ever did. If the history of clocks and watches is a history of the gradually tightening ordering of our lives, then the Apple Watch could be that history's ultimate consummation.

People, not parents, struggle to find the time and energy to do the things they know they should. Anyhow, it struck me that there are some things I can (and will!) blame my children for, cheerfully, and some things that I resolve I will not blame them for. I want them to know I can prioritise what's important for my own wellbeing, so that they can learn from me.

Computers afford us a lot, and social media has its pluses and minuses, but what the Internet can't truly replicate is the spirit when all our senses are engaged and we are participating in life outside the screen. That's what's missing. That's why there's less time for living. Here's how to use social media and create a balance so that you enjoy the moments of living more fully.

We Google everything, research endless possibilities, find everything we need with a few taps of the keyboard, and we're dealing with new information coming at us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sometimes too much choice can cost us valuable time, and money. It doesn't have to be that hard.

List the many millions of things you have to do in a day. How often do you actually get all of those things done? How many of them are never completed because you never got to them the day before?

About 1.5 years ago I underwent a 6 hour surgery to remove a few cancer-inflicted organs. I was guaranteed to be a goner prior to that surgery. Before that, I thought I had it all figured out. I took serious pride in the statement "I am so busy." I was productive and important. I was burning the candle at both ends, and society loved me for it. But what did that get me?
