I run my own business in which I wear sales, customer service, strategic planning, marketing and HR hats. I am also a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a housekeeper, a cook. All of these amazing jobs require my attention and participation. Every. Single. Day. It’s exhausting to write it all out; actually, to see it all in writing! I guess maybe you won’t find it shocking that I sometimes feel overwhelmed. I know I’m not stranded alone on an island and many of you also have more than one job that requires your attention, maybe even stretches you thin.
I often look for words of inspiration to keep me sane. I follow five specific Twitter handles which give me the perspective I need to be my best and wanted to share them with you. I need each one of these in my life.
- The Daily Zen @dailyzen: From their profile, “The Daily Zen is a collection of quotes and articles to inspire creativity and philosophical inquiry.”
- Dale Carnegie Training @DaleCarnegie: This is a professional and personal development company that was built by Dale Carnegie who wrote How to Win Friends and Influence People, the best selling and one of the most influential business books of all time. Often in their Twitter feed are quotes and motivational tweets that will have you and your staff excited to face the day. Here’s one that resonated with me on Monday, “Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”
- UberFacts @UberFacts: Okay, I follow UberFacts because it gives me lighthearted trivia that I share with everyone. A little levity goes a long way and microbreaks do a lot to help refresh the mind.
- Daily Motivation @Motivation_Day: It does what it says and says what it does.
- Daily Calvin & Hobbs Quote: @CalvinandHobb3s – “This is the unofficial daily C&H quote by a fan.” I love it because it reminds me to take my work seriously but not to take myself so seriously. Sage advice!
Add these to your Twitter feed and find inspiration or be the inspiration for others. Oh, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter too @CareerluxeInc.
