I recently bought an Erin Condren Life Planner, after - of course! - a lot of thinking and analyzing options (find the process and the other options here). After I've been asked to write a review, here's how the colourful little planner helped me so far: 1. It's pricey, but it stands out. Not your average business planner, ...

Procrastination – why it’s hopeless and what you can still do about it

Note: Procrastination is the nasty habit of postponing things that need to get done. All the time. On the other hand, if you're not so familiar with Procrastination, you might not be needing this article, because you're a very happy and efficient person.

How to be an awsome Project Manager

"Not everyone can be a Project Manager" it is said. Or at least, that's what I heard in a conversation yesterday.
