Think about your last pool-side holiday and how relaxed you were. You didn't feel busy or stressed, and you got plenty done and didn't even realise it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You probably went for a morning beach walk, had breakfast, did some shopping, went on an island tour and learnt to basket weave, slept, swam in the pool, got a massage, and went out for dinner. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Now convert this day to 'normal' life, where i ask you to get up and exercise, have breakfast, go out and be around and talk to lots of people, negotiate prices for products, interpret cartographic documents, learn some new skill, have a nap, do some more exercise,  get to an afternoon appointment  and finally meet your spouse for dinner.⁠⠀
⁠⠀ I know, shopping and island tours are a magnitudes different to most people's work, but the point remains that on your holiday you focused in on **what you wanted to do** and achieve in a day paying little mind to the time related to each thing and consequently you were able to move from task to task and achieve it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tasks, Actions, To Dos. Whatever you call them, are the foundation stones of everything we achieve. Doing and creating is way more instinctual than the abstract notion of time. Humans have been doing stuff way longer then they have cared about the concept of time. When we *CREATED* 'time management' a lot of people started spinning around getting stressed out about how busy they were, and how they can never get anything done. Then industrial revolution businesses adopted time as the metric for the worker and the rest was history.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In 2020, businesses should be encouraging society away from time and towards quality of output. Letting people focus in on a task, allowing them to see it through and creating a beautiful product or giving exceptional service, will appeal to, and attract, more customers.⁠⠀

Do you think technology could completely replace personal face to face communication at work?

GARDEN UPDATE-The main lock down project has been the garden fence. Although we like our neighbours the existing 3 foot fence had to go!!. So after 4 years in the house we are finally getting there. Hubby is doing a great job. We will get our dream garden.

Day 31•What I’ve achieved in May
#mydailyrenovation 
Another whole month of lockdown. When I say it out loud it’s super surreal still, not something I’d ever thought would happen yet here we are. It’s slightly different here in Wales but I do hope you are all keeping safe and sane. 
We’ve been so grateful for having the house to renovate to keep us occupied. Without being able to get certain materials we’ve got on with whatever we had. I think being here 24/7 meant I needed to give the interior a quick fix, it was getting me down seeing unfinished rooms so I decided to temporary decorate all 4 bedrooms ✔️ and the upstairs and downstairs hallway. It’s broken me a bit but its made such a big difference. The hallway makes me the happiest despite the colour on the walls not being right. It’s an improvement and that’s what I needed. 
Also, completing a whole month of @mydailyrenovation is an achievement for me 🙌🏻 #whativeachievedinmay #whativeachieved #achieve #gettingthingsdone #lockdowndecorating #decorating #may #endofmay #endofthemonth #anothermonthoflockdown #windowview #windowsofinstagram #paintedwindows #farrowandball #studiogreen #green #greenery #plants #plantsofinstagram #houseplants #hallway #beforeandafter #thatview #home #makingahome #showusurgaff #loverenovate #renovate #renovations

These granny squares always look a little off to me before I add the final row of white. Somehow it just ties all the other colors together 😊

The religion of being busy is slowly fading away.  A commitment to productivity remains. #GettingThingsDone #DJFORIEBC

#castle #banffnationalpark #canadianartist #rockymountains #acrylicpainting #finished #gettingthingsdone I'm thinking of naming this "Between Rocks and a Hard Place". Just kidding. " Autumn Shadows on Castle Mountain" seems more poetic.

I’m thrilled to share I’ve been invited to provide training on digital wellness for artists impacted by COVID-19 in the Gateway Arts District.

The training is being delivered in partnership with the @gatewaymediaartslab, the catalyst for arts-driven economic revitalization of @princegeorgescounty communities within the Gateway Arts District.

I’ll be discussing how to mindfully use technology while maintaining our sanity, staying creative, and getting a handle on our increased screen time in the current environment.

We have access to more tools and information than we have the time, energy, and attention to handle.

So, it’s no accident we're experiencing emotions ranging from outrage to apathy in response to non-stop news about police shootings of unarmed Black people, prolonged uncertainty about COVID-19, and on and on…

If you’re exhausted from all of this, here are a few tips for healing:

1. Logoff, unplug, and unfollow.
.
.
While you cannot control external events, you can curate which information you consume, and when and how.

2. Drop out of the “Woke Olympics.”
.
.
Your social media and news feeds may be filled with clever thought pieces and observations from people showing off how socially conscious they are. It’s okay if you don’t have anything “woke” to say. This doesn’t mean you’re not socially aware or don’t care about the issues at stake.

3. Give yourself permission to feel what you’re feeling.
.
.
Your feelings are real. Don’t allow anyone to tell you otherwise.

4. Allow other people to feel what they feel.
.
.
Not everyone will respond the same, and that’s perfectly okay.

How are you taking care of yourself when it comes to news and information overload?
