Focus on the solution, not on the problem

10.02.2021
Often our problems consume our time and (mental) health. By the definition of Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary problem is a "thing that is difficult to deal with or to understand." So, by definition of a problem, it is not the real problem. Your difficulty is the one aspect of the problem. When you would know how to deal with it, it would no longer be exper...

Offering a proactive workplace wellness program for employees is now a must if you want to see personal initiative and personal responsibility.

Multitasking is an illusion that kills your productivity

How do we deal with the daily stressors aro...
