Scroll down to book.

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

Blog – Thriving in a world of distractions

Picture if you will, a day segmented neatly into a productive and effective eight hour work day, followed by leaving on time for your one-to-two hour fulfilling hobby, or perhaps you’ll meet friends or family after work giving them your undivided attention, maybe you’ll be picking up the children from school and run them along to their fun and enhancing after-school activities. The day then smoothly eases into the evening of leisurely unwinding and prepping up for the next day, and your head gently hits your pillow at the end of the evening for an eight hour deep sleep, to start refreshed the next morning.

In a 24 hour switched-on planet, technology driven in our waking and non-waking hours, we will endeavour to get a lot more done with a lot less, striving for professional and personal efficiency. We live in a world where people around the world are connected online resulting in information overload and competing priorities. Boxing off time is a luxury a few of us might be able to afford. Research has shown that the 9 to 5 is fast disappearing, (YouGov, 2018), almost half of people either work flexibly, job share or work compressed hours, to allow them to juggle other commitments (The Conversation).

by Donata Iandolo

The workshop led by Naily Makangu on 16th October 2018, led us through a series of questions one should ask him/herself when undertaking changes in ones’ career. The leitmotif has been: How much are you prepared to pay, How much are you prepared to invest in yourself to get the career you want?
