    Celebrating the Small Things

    Thank you for sharing this. It was the sort of motivation I needed to hear this morning. *hugs*

    The "Little" Keys To My Success

    In this post I want to give shout out to the "unsung heroes" of my success. My old yet trust HP and Asus Laptops, my stable internet connection, my quiet spot in the basement, my family and friends for understanding that my freelancing is "real work" and I keep odd hours at times, my coffee pot...

    10,000 steps a day

    It is a great start Allison and I think it is wise that you are taking it slow and working your way up! Going all in and trying to go from being somewhat sedentary (3000 to 5000 steps a day) to 10K steps a day could backfire on a person and actually cause them to lose motivation.

    10,000 steps a day

    Between the app on my phone and my previous use of FitBit (loved that thing before my dog ate it) my steps are counted in some way shape or form and I find it quite motivational. If I set my goal for say 7500 steps for the day and I see that I'm 300 steps away from making that goal in the...

    Personal Milestones

    Do any of you set personal milestones for yourself when you are working toward a new goal or on a new project? If so, what are they and how do you hold yourself accountable? Do you do anything if you don't meet them?

    Exercises That Are Easy on a Bad Knee

    Thank you so much nfilas! I'll have to look into getting a better quality knee brace than the one I have now. Mine is rather flimsy too. I have some exercises that I do but I'm going to ask a professional for some advice.

    6 Lifestyle Habits for More Clarity

    This is a wonderful idea and I can't wait to look into and share this video. Most people undervalue just how important having this kind clarity in life is... and it is not something that comes easy for most. So thank you for creating and sharing this.

    Google Drive / Google Docs

    I have to agree with you Alex when you call it a lifesaver! It's saved me many times as well. The ability to login and access anywhere is golden and that offline feature makes any trip (when you are not manning the vehicle lol) go by so quickly. I do tons of editing for other people with it too!

    Success at Work

    Thank you so much for sharing that link CV. I'm always looking to expand my small collection of helpful and up to date websites on this subject matter. It's nice to see a site that is not just another carbon copy of what is already out there. Plus it's not so easy to go to human resources at...

    Google Drive / Google Docs

    I personally cannot sing the praises of Google Drive / Google Docs enough. As an avid writer it has given me the ability to access my work nearly everywhere I frequent, while on the move and has allowed me to collaborate with as many people as necessary and all for free. I can write and edit on...

    Exercises That Are Easy on a Bad Knee

    Does anyone know of any good exercises that work well for someone with chronic knee pain? Everything seems to aggravate my knee and I don't know how to swim. I did do a water aerobics class but none in my area really work with my schedule. Any suggestions, advice and even links to videos would...

    Financial Advice

    For a young person I would tell them to keep in mind the difference between wants and needs. It is hard for a young mind at times to truly separate these two things. They think they NEED the latest phone or MUST HAVE a new outfit to wear for the weekend and mindsets like this can really hurt a...

    Writing proccess

    For anything under 800 words I try to keep my research time under 2 hours (under one if I can manage it) I know this doesn't sound like much but in 300-500 words you are only going to be able to offer an overview at most on any topic. If you are getting paid to do these articles, any time over...

    Writing proccess

    These are all great ideas, Tyler. I was already doing a few of them but I think I'm going to try them all. Your suggestion to make an outline sounds like it may be the solution I've been looking for to get back on some sort of track this year with my own writing goals. Thank you.
