Connecting to the leader within

Leaders are not made because of parking spot signs, titles, paychecks, age or even experience. I have found that people who are living their Purposeful Hustle are leaders. When you are so passionate about making a positive change in the world and are taking steps to make it happen, that kind of energy is contagious.

What are you afraid of - the process or the results?

on May 21, 2019 2:00:00 PM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Life Plan Career Wisdom Reflection Self-Care
Over time — in my own experience and through others’ stories that they’ve shared with me — I’ve realized that it’s much easier to be excited about the potential results of our actions than it is to feel excited about the process required to make them happen. A lot of times, the process is actually really scary.

It’s not always easy to put yourself out there, especially if you’re already surrounded by a supportive community of people who want to see you live into your purpose, but meeting new people and expanding our network is essential to growth. Especially if you are looking for more support and encouragement in pursuing your purpose, I cannot overstress how important is to find YOUR people.

Networking can be fun. There, I said it. I’m that person who’s trying to convince you that networking isn’t totally awful. But really, if you take a new approach, something that is inevitable can actually become enjoyable.

Aiming for 80%

on Mar 12, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Skills Life Plan Family Wisdom Self-Care
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule? It’s called the Pareto principle, and it states that roughly 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes. This could be for anything: 80 percent of sales come from 20 percent of the customers, 80 percent of injuries are caused by 20 percent of hazards, 80 percent of points are scored by 20 percent of players on a team. You get the picture. The point is that a small concentration of energy, resources, talent or some other quality can create an immense impact.

Scheduling with spontaneity

on Feb 26, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Skills Life Plan Self-Care
The idea of keeping a tight schedule may seem daunting. Having every minute planned seems stressful and suffocating - that you’re sucking the fun out of life. However, I have found that managing a detailed schedule actually allows me to be MORE spontaneous. Weird, right?

Figuring Out What to Do

on Feb 20, 2019 10:17:13 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Purpose Life Plan Wisdom Reflection
Even for the Purposeful Hustler, managing time effectively can be a major struggle. We have endless to-do lists, only 24 hours in a day, and most importantly, a world to change! Every day can feel like a battle to just stay afloat, much less to swim forward. We are confronted with the most pressing question: Where do we even start?

Why balance is a lie

on Feb 12, 2019 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Life Plan Career Family Self-Care
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 | Purpose Skills Life Plan 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.
