Note: This post is written by Alex Moore In our fast-paced, always-on society, sleep can feel like an enormous waste of time. With so much pressure to get ahead, work hard, and put in as many productive hours as humanly possible, it might feel hard to justify spending an entire third of every single day lying in bed doing nothing.
Note: This post is written by Martin Hrnjak “Painkillers might ease symptoms temporarily, but unless treated from the core the problem will keep returning.” How often in life do we hide from whatever is bothering us? Maybe we are irritated all the time and respond badly to people asking us questions, maybe we are constantly in despair and don’t understand why dates never seem to work out, maybe we have a hard time finding a job; and instead of addressing the problem and facing the discomfort of looking at it in the eyes – we run, and hide.

Imagine going from a fit 22-year-old law student and writer to an almost bed-ridden fatigued young adult who feels like almost 95 years old.

No early morning commute to the office, no workplace drama (hopefully), and your schedule becomes much more flexible. When your office is your living room, oversleeping that extra 20 minutes because you had trouble falling asleep the night before becomes less of a problem. Even if you aren’t your own boss and are working for someone else remotely, logging your hours from the comfort of your bedroom or kitchen if you want to is a liberating experience.
It has been years since I wrote about personal branding. In this post, I’d like to revisit the topic because I believe that personal branding is an important part of our personal effectiveness. What is a personal brand? Simply put, your personal brand is the promise of the value people will get when they come to you. This promise gives people a reason to come to you. As a result, it can future-proof your career.
