Gmail is full of add-ons, tricks and tweaks to help you get and stay organized … and find more time.

We’ve shared a lot about Gmail here on The Time Finder through the years; and we thought we had the ground pretty well-covered. (more…)

Distraction is, if not the biggest time challenge for most of us in 2014, certainly one of the top 5 or 10.
Between the information streaming at us via the internet (and the multiple devices we possess for delivering it) and the expectations of quick responses and almost 24-7 productivity, it’s no wonder that we often feel besieged, inundated, and pulled in multiple divergent directions all at once.

That’s because if you’re not taking full responsibility for your self-care, you are daily sending yourself out into the world undernourished and unprepared. We would never do that to a child, or advise (more…)
