The Rolling Stones
Time is on my side, yes it is …
Remember those lyrics?
Except for these days, I’m a cynical old rocker and sing along ‘Time is on my side, no it’s not’. So, sue me. Maybe Mick Jagger will … sigh … ?.
Well, daydreaming about rock gods of my generation doesn’t get stuff done, does it?
Ooh – now I’ve leapt into The Who talkin’ ‘bout my generation lyrics (from their album My Generation).
If you’re following Michelle’s Facebook Live Q&A, on the Dragon Sisters Facebook Page on Wednesdays, you’ll be noticing that managing your time seems to be a common recurrent theme.
We’re all of us always looking for tips, tools, resources to make it easier to keep pace with our super-fast tech-world and digital doings. To give us a hand in keeping up with our business, our clients – and our competitors!
The old saying the early bird gets the worm rings true. But how the hickory-dickory-dock do you get up early enough? With international time zones, it can seem like your clients never sleep – at least in terms of your time zone. And who wants a worm anyway? Not me! But a lively, wriggly prospective client? Sure. I’ll be up for that. And early! And rocking!!
How to keep a rocking
My favourite of Michelle’s tips is
5) Break times – Set yourself designated break times and stick to them. Leave your desk, and if possible go outside into the fresh air.
Don’t eat at your desk, take the time to chat with colleagues or read a magazine/chapter from a book, listen to some relaxing music or whatever appeals to you.
Three guesses what appeals to me … listening to the Rolling Stones, The Who, the who-ever – that’s my relaxation; plus, it gets me buzzing ?. Maybe not quite Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in D Minor to soothe … but it does it for me. And she did say whatever appeals to you.
By the way, if you like the classics (other than rock classics) I do highly recommend Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in D Minor. If you’re feeling frazzled that is definitely a go-to.
But for me … rock on!
