A quick personal update: I just got married. Well, it’s been over one week actually (it’s on November 20), but I went out of town for a few days with no Internet access. That’s why I couldn’t share the news with you earlier. Now that I’ve been back to work, I thought I’d just tell you about it :) On a side note, it’s been some time since I wrote a post here (my last post was published on September 23), but I do plan to write more frequently. Thanks for being with me on this blog!
Note: This is a guest post from Madison Sonnier of Journey of a Soul Searcher One important way to achieve mental stability and contentment is to have a good balance of work and play in your life.

I encouraged my kids to stick with music lessons.” “IF ONLY …… I hadn’t said that!” The list goes on and on. No one goes through life without some “if onlys.”
Note: This is a guest post from Alex Mangini of Life Notion I’m going to be honest with you: one of the most difficult things about doing any kind of work is finding the motivation to keep going and get what needs to get done, done. And not just for the sake of accomplishing something, but to actually do a good job of it. And I’ll let you in on a little secret that may take some guilt off your conscience: Each and every one of us has given up on something, or hasn’t completed a task to our fullest potential. Generally, this is because we don’t have an interest in what we’re doing (like homework, or chores). When’s the last time you were told to do something you absolutely did not want to do, but did anyway? Was it fun? Wouldn’t you rather be doing something else? But most importantly: did you do what you were asked to your fullest potential? Incredibly enough, doing things you don’t enjoy is not what will ultimately kill your overall productivity.
