Detox Your Space For Better Productivity

Your internal world is represented in your external world (Click to Tweet). Day Ten: Detox Your Space Doing the work internally should always, always come first, as what you feel internally is represented in all the things around you. If your workspace, home, car, and any other place you frequent are cluttered, disorganized, and dirty, chances are it’s because internally, you feel the same way. Perhaps you’re stressed, worried, or all over the place emotionally, and now...

Reflection Is Necessary For Progress

Day Nine: Reflection During the first eight days of the Twelve Days of Crysmas, we’ve focused on different areas to ensure that you have the best 2018 possible.
