Why balance is a lie

on Feb 12, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Self-Care Family Career Life Plan
We often talk about balance as if it’s the highest achievable goal, as if our life should be focused on maintaining this perfect sense balance. A lot of times, we even tell ourselves that if we lose balance, we will trip and fall and never be able to get back up again. We invest our time, energy and love into so many different aspects of our lives: career, family, health, relationships, (and God forbid even fun and adventure sometimes!), and we’re told we can “do it all” as long as we keep everything balanced. Balance work life and home life. Balance caring for others and caring for yourself. Balance being a mother, a daughter, a manager, a coach, a partner, and a friend.

Self-care for purposeful hustlers

on Jan 15, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Plan Life Skills Purpose Self-Care
These days, we hear the word “self-care” tossed around a lot. It’s used in so many different ways and has become a buzzword to sell products ranging from face masks to yoga classes. It’s used so much that it can almost feel like another form of stress. We might get caught thinking, “I have so much going on already, and now I need to worry about self-care too!” But whether we like it or not, taking good care of ourselves is essential. We need to be a friend to ourselves. Especially as Purposeful Hustlers, in order live into our purpose, we need to be able to be the best versions of ourselves. We need to know what we need to stay healthy, mentally, physically and emotionally. Our wellbeing is SO IMPORTANT.

Plan Like a Purposeful Hustler

on Jan 1, 2019 2:00:00 PM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Plan Skills Life
  One of the number one questions I get from people is how do you find the time to do all of the things that you are doing?  I wish that I had a magic time machine that made additional time. But I don’t have one! (If you do, please share!)After reflecting on this question, I realized that I do have a pretty intentional system that I have been using over the past decade to help me achieve my Purposeful Hustle goals!  To date, it has been a mixture of things in my head, a few tools and a couple of notes here and there. BUT as a gift to myself, and all of the Purposeful Hustlers out there, I decided to actually see if I could turn it into a system that I could share with others.  And guess what, it’s here!

Our purpose doesn’t always show up for us at the most convenient times. But then again, with how busy we are, when would be a convenient time?

Tips About How to Afford to Change Your Life

on Oct 9, 2018 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Career Social Change Impact Plan Life Initiative
One of the most common obstacles people express to me when wanting to do impactful work is finances. It seems like there’s never enough money to make the changes in your life that will help you live within your purpose or create the impact that you want to see. This is where the the hustle part of a Purposeful Hustle kicks in. With little or no money, I have seen people create countless impactful solutions. In fact, I soon realized in my philanthropic work that the organizations with the biggest impact are often the ones who are underfunded. Why? Because those organizations prioritize impact over fundraising and are too busy doing the work to raise the money. You CAN make a huge impact with a small cash flow.
