De-clutter and Simplify Your Life

Today.s Guest Article on Superperformance.com

I frequently add information about personal organization and time management to the superperformance.com site content. Not only is organization essential to performance and productivity, it.s a big boon to stress management. Because it is very difficult to operate efficiently and comfortably in even the mildest chaos, I constantly encourage people to create physical and mental orderliness and timeliness. So, I.ve published De-clutter and Simplify Your Life by Kate Tilmouth to the collection of guest articles on that subject.

Also, I’d like to recommend the following book on the same subject:

Productivity Tool from SpringWidgets

SpringWidgets.com hosts a multitude of tiny utilities for your desktop or web page. From audio financial blog streaming to football stats comparisons, they.ve got something for every interest. Even better, if you don.t find what you want, you can make one of your own. Their Express Widget Maker is a little marvel that lets you make a little feedreader in a couple of minutes. Really. And if you.re a developer, you can get the SDK that lets you make fairly sophisticated widgets. There is no charge for the widgets or for making widgets. As an example, I discovered a handy little job finder from SimplyHired.com, and a widget of it, downloadable below.

Working With An Employment Agency

Today.s Guest Article on Superperformance.com:

Today I published Working With an Employment Agency – What to Expect by Laura Whitelaw As the title indicates, the article explains the benefits of using employment agencies (also called .recruitment agencies. and .staffing agencies.) as part of your job search. The author also covers strategies for making the process work for you.

I, too, highly recommend employment agencies and management recruiters. They can save a lot of time because they have many job listings that never make any publications, including online job boards, and even if they don.t have a listing appropriate for you right now, they have vast networks of contacts. In the dim and distant past, when I was working my way through college, my day job for about a year was as an employment counselor in an agency. I eventually placed myself in a job that allowed more study time, but I left with great respect for the hard work done in agencies and the variety skills and knowledge the counselors must have. Try them.
