Are you a high performance person?

Are you a high performance person?

We often hear the term ‘high performance’, especially in the workplace. But being a high performer can be applied to all areas of your life. And let’s face it, we shouldn’t necessarily have to split up work and life – isn’t all just life, right?

Your email notifications are killing your productivity

We’re experts in making up excuses as to why we can’t practise meditation daily.

How to manage your energy, not your time

Kick old time management habits out, and introduce techniques to manage your energy.

Time management demonstrates a one-size-fits-all approach to managing meetings, tasks, agendas and so forth. In fact, most people have been taught that, to effectively time manage, you should always do the most important task first. However, this often requires us to use a large amount of mental energy on the ‘important’ tasks, resulting in decreased productivity in the long-term.
