Freelancer Meetup and Happy Hour 6:15 PM at CC

Rihanna once sang, “Work, work, work, work, work.” The beat was rhythmic and the lyrics memorable. Many of us still sing along when it streams or plays on a local radio station. Yes, many of us work, work, work, but are we equally committed to rest, rest, rest?

For too many of us, the answer is no. We’ve become so engrossed with staying busy that we often mistake it for productivity. Yet, productivity and busy-ness are not interchangeable. In fact, productivity often includes resting and being focused on your overall well-being — and that includes aligning your work with your life. To help do this we will discuss:

1. How's your alignment?
2. Clear Goals
3. Write It Down
4. Set Boundaries
5. How Fluidity impacts your Freelance career.
6. Why You Need to Rest

There is a strong likelihood that when things are amiss, we are not producing our best work and we are making unnecessary mistakes. No matter how much you may want/need to do something, if you don’t take the time to evaluate and re-energize, you will eventually experience some form of burnout.

The most effective way to balance work/life is to be aware of how you feel and why. If you feel as if you are in a perpetual tug-of-war with yourself then it is time to step back and reprioritize. Just as social media has immortalized the phrase, “Let’s work;” it is equally important that we celebrate, “Let’s rest.” Summer is a great time to do that!!

Plus: We will have the usual Happy Hour and Snacks!
