Friday Reflections: Enjoying Spring, Building a Future


Since my rose bushes are blooming, I’m quite ready to follow Lindsay’s advice! I clipped one of my pretty yellow and orange roses to brighten my reading corner.

Spring has come and flowers are blooming, so here’s a happy reminder to take it easy this weekend! Hard work is necessary for a successful career, but so is balancing yourself with mindful downtime, methodical progress and preparation for the future:

 “11 Small, easy ways to be more mindful this spring” – A refreshing reminder from the Freelancers Union’s Lindsay Van Theon on the first day of spring!

“How to Stay Focused When You Get Bored Working Toward Your Goals” – According to James Clear, being mindful for a few moments isn’t enough; “But if you look at the people who are consistently achieving their goals, you start to realize that it’s not the events or the results that make them different. It’s their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, not the individual event.”

“It’s Okay To Prepare For Your Dreams” – Though risking the path less traveled is a popular move, Sean Chalmers validates conservative career choices in his article for Under30CEO. Take your time, grow at your own pace and maybe smell some roses along the way.
