The Merits of Not-For-Profit Yoga

Referring to a yoga center with the caveat: "It's not-for-profit" often carries with it an assumption of merit. Given the humanitarian and universal nature of yoga, taking the profit motive out of the business model seems ideal. However, a further examination of the trade-offs involved in opening both for-profit and not-for-profit yoga centers challenges this assumption.

Schedule Preparation Time

Schedule time to prepare for meetings and conferences

Have you ever looked at your calendar and discovered you had a meeting scheduled and you just weren’t ready for it? What happened?

Most likely, you knew you had work to do to get ready for the meeting, but you didn’t set aside the time to do that work. Probably you didn’t even look when you were scheduling the meeting itself to make sure you actually had time available to do any preparation required.

Your Work Hours

Determine your work  hours, and stick to them!

Every business has office hours (or store hours, if retail). Why don’t you?

Why do you feel it is necessary to work all hours of the day and night?

Why do you think you need to answer your business phone after hours? Or answer your emails at 11pm?

What impact does this have?

Impact on you: you have no time off.

You are operating as if you are working (or available) 24 hours a day. And you inadvertently train others that you will take their call whenever they call.

Using Candles to Empower Women and End Poverty

It started over cannoli in a small bakery in Northampton, Massachusetts. Ted Barber and his business comrade, Amber Chand, knew they wanted to help put an end to poverty and that investing in women in places of conflict and chaos was where they wanted to start. The product needed to be easy to make at home, scalable, and be sold for a living wage. With absolutely no experience in candle-making, Ted and Amber launched a candle company.

Roshan, the First Benefit Corporation in Afghanistan, Brings People and Hope Closer

In 2003, Afghanis had no access to international telecommunications. To call family members or business contacts anywhere else in the world, they had no option but to cross the border into a neighboring country, a luxury that most Afghanis could not afford.

How Do You Manage Interruptions?

Have you ever noticed how many things will interrupt you throughout your day? And how often?

I have heard that we get interrupted, on average, about once every 6 to 8 minutes throughout the day. And, that it can take us 10-15 minutes (or more) to get our focus back on what we were doing before the interruption.

There is a real problem with that! The math doesn’t work! By those standards, the first interruption will derail your whole day.

What can you do about it?

5 Reasons to Work Less (and Get More Done)

Why is it we think the solution to getting something done is to throw more time at it? You know what I mean. Just 5 more minutes. If I just keep pressing through I will actually get it done.

Five more minutes turns into 2 hours, and we are no closer to finishing than we were before. Then, of course, we usually think there is something wrong with us. What’s wrong with us that we can’t get through this? And we can’t even think straight we are so tired!
