Blog – Productivity, Confidence & Work/ Life Balance, and my ‘Burning Yes’

By Dr Carrie Mowatt

On the 23 June 2020, Olga Degtyareva’s online workshop took the participants through setting boundaries to enable us to achieve our long-term goals and helped think about prioritising our ‘burning yes’.

Little did I know that the universe was going to provide me with a spectacularly unforgettable ‘burning yes’ later that very evening!

Olga set the scene by painting an engaging and relatable picture of the many varied work/ life balance challenges encountered by women at all stages of their careers in STEMM. We touched on the extra challenges and opportunities around remote working and home-schooling during the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic.

As scientists we are very busy during our work day, with hundreds of things needed to be done. This makes it difficult to find time to do what’s really important such as writing up our research papers. Often, even when we do sit down to write, we find ourselves getting distracted or discouraged and as the result little writing gets done…

Increasing your confidence and balancing your work life is a way to become more productive! You can get more done in less time, and also feel more in charge of your day and happier in your life. In this webinar Olga is going to share with you the tools and strategies to do it, and provide inspiration for you to implement them in your situation.

ALL WELCOME (all genders and non-STEMM). #INWED20
