For many people, Sunday is a day of rest, a day to review the reading they missed over the course of the week. If you are one of those people, this is the place for you!

It is terrific to know you can stop procrastination by giving it your best effort. There a quite a few definitions for procrastination.

It is wonderful to know your search for work will be more successful if you do some research. There comes a time in the lives of most adults when they must look for a work. It does not matter if you are a traditional employee, an entrepreneur or a freelancer. Unless you are independently wealthy, you must earn income and in order to do so, you must look for work. Once upon a time, when people were looking for work things were simple. People would get the Sunday edition of the local newspaper and it would be filled to the brim with listings from all kinds of employers trying to find employees to fill job openings. Today, the Sunday newspaper editions, where they exist, are slim and have few listings. One is more likely to find jobs via the internet job boards, social networking sites and LinkedIn.

There are always books, articles, documentaries and news reports on the struggle to balance work and life. These stories always amaze me because they are usually so drastically dismal or ridiculously optimistic. The reality is that it is hard to balance work and life, but it can be done. Like most things worth having, finding a balance between work and life is hard but well worth the effort. Most people work because they have to work in order to provide a living for themselves and their families. At the same time people want to live lives that are fulfilling, satisfying and enjoyable.
