Always Push Yourself

The other day, while on my run, I had a mental battle. I wanted to stop, but I know I needed to keep going. I needed to push myself to go further than I had the day before. This way, it would be easier the next day, and in return, I could push myself even further again.

After this, I began to think back over the past few months at the different scenarios where I pushed myself to do something, and in return, I grew from it.

Things like, working out, trying a project at work that was outside my experience zone, and replacing a part on my car that I had not done before by myself. All of these items pushed me outside my comfort zone. BUT, in return, I grew from it. I learned new things. I improved my physical and mental capacities.

It is important to continually push yourself. If something makes you nervous, that is not bad. In fact, you need those items.

Always keep learning. Always keep pushing yourself to take risks, to learn new things, and to go outside of your comfort zone.

The reward on the other side is amazing.

Don’t waste a second by staying stagnant. Life is too short.

Microsoft Teams vs. Slack [infographic]

I am a productivity junkie. I love exploring new ways to make better use of the limited time we are given.

Over the past ten years, I have tested every project management / chat / productivity tool I have come across.

There are currently two tools that have been making headlines everywhere – Slack and Microsoft Teams (set to launch this year). TechWyse came out with this cool infographic that is comparing these two products, and I thought you may enjoy it.

The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon [book review]

The Energy Bus by Jon GordonThe Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy by Jon Gordon is one of my favorite books right now. This book shares a fictional story woven with practical, real-life principles we each should integrate into our lives.

Life is not easy. There are bumps and bruises along the way. But how we handle those makes an incredible impact on our day to day lives.

Positive energy is real. And so is negative energy. We drive our own life every day, and the energy we reflect is the energy that drives our bus.

This book is an amazing book. It will change your thinking if you let it. It is a short and easy read.

I highly encourage you to grab your copy today!
