The Power Cup is the perfect way to get the motivation I need to slay my day.
Affirmations on the Go
I love that I can access affirmations from my phone. This way, no matter how fast I am running out the door, I don’t have to worry about accidentally leaving the book behind.
As if filling up on good affirmations isn’t reason enough, there is even more good news! The Power Cup is completely free for download to your laptop or smart phone at KourtniRashon.com.
Everything about a nice freebie makes me want to jump out my seat – but a freebie that increases my productivity…now that makes me want to dance.
Free up Brain Space
With everything going on in our worlds, it is easy to forget killer ideas that come to us while we are out making it happen throughout the day. Attempting to store too much in your brain can actually decrease productivity by increasing brain clutter.
I help myself out by keeping a journal in my bag to jot down thoughts in the moment.
Later during my quiet time, I review my abbreviated notes, expanding as much as necessary for recollection in the future.
Capture Great Learning Experiences
As a creative, everything from conversations to fitness classes spark ideas for things I want to share on the blog. I enjoy writing those thoughts down as they come to me so that I don’t have to hold them all in my head.
Beyond that, journals are a great way to write down things I’m interested in learning more about in my free time.
They also help me quickly jot down major keys I pick up on during talks with colleagues and friends.
Your reason may be different, but almost all of us have things we need to get out of our brain and on to paper to keep us on task. Try carrying a cute journal, and track the difference it makes in your productivity.
I’m not sure how I was living life without my Micheal Kors Access Smart Watch.
This is by far one of my favorite gifts from the Hubbs!
The ABC’s of Why I Love the Access Watch
A.) It’s sleek and stylish.
For the longest, I refused to buy a smart watch strictly on the principle that they weren’t cute enough to match my fly.
That is out the window with this, baby! The design of the watch screams, “Yasssssss!!!” And I am especially a fanatic of the interchangeable watch faces that glow with fabulousity throughout my day.
B) Its productivity alerts help keep me focused. I just sync my watch to my phone and everything I need is at my wrist for the day.
This function is great for someone like me whose whole life is a meeting or conference call. The watch ensures that I’m up to speed and that I don’t miss a thing.
C) The Michael Kors Access comes with fitness tracking that keeps me conscious of my need to stay active. It is great for encouraging me to make my sedentary job not so sedentary by moving more. This increases my physical productivity and helps me reach daily wellness goals.
D) THE GOOGLE TRANSLATOR 🙂 Who doesn’t want their own personal translator for international trips?
I love the idea that the watch interprets what the speaker is saying then translates it into one of many language options. Now, I don’t have to be the annoying foreigner starting every sentence with, ” eh, como si dice….” any more! That alone is enough to make me happy for at least the next few years.
People who know me know that I am addicted to great planners!
In my opinion, the Kate Spade Mega Agenda is the holy grail. It is perfect for organizing my list of priorities and scheduling my monthly activities- all of which lead to increased work productivity throughout my day.
The Space Component
I love the amount of space for writing out daily to-dos. With past planners, I ALWAYS felt like there wasn’t nearly enough room to write out everything I needed to accomplish throughout my day.
Kate Spade makes that concern obsolete.
About the Aesthetics
In addition, the cute design of the planner makes me super proud to carry it from meeting to meeting. It’s one of those things that just makes your day better by looking at it.
Aesthetically pleasing is an understatement.
Oh, and let’s not forget that there is no topping the Henri Bendal Jetsetter convertible backpack.
Practical and Fabulous
This fine specimen doubles as practical and fabulous.
I love that it can be carried as a shoulder bag or back pack and maintains more than enough space for my laptop, journal, and agenda. Now, I can carry key productivity components in one place without feeling overwhelmed with clutter or disorganization.
So long are the days of carrying uncomfortable laptop bags or child-like backpacks into the office. Now, I look professional without struggling to keep my disobedient laptop carrier in place- and that, my friends, is a win!
I want to hear from you!
