Adam’s Educational Moment: Time Management Tips for Top Performers

At a recent Geese meeting, Our Educational Coordinator, Adam Engel of Prime Title and Escrow, discussed a post from Leo Babauta on Zen Habits, Time Management Tips for Top Performers.  With endless emails and other distractions, it’s easy to fall down several rabbit-holes during your workday.  The article reminds us to:

Focus on the things that matter. Clear everything else away, and don’t act on the urges to put off the important stuff.

Notice when you’re turning away from the high-impact tasks, and train yourself to turn towards it instead.

Batch the smaller stuff (like email and messages) and give that some time later in the day to focus, if that’s important to your work.

Train yourself to focus, and train yourself to always know what you should focus on.

And then connect to why it’s meaningful.

Adam’s Educational Moment: Choosing the Right Mask to Protect Yourself and Others

Our Educational Coordinator, Adam Engel of Prime Title and Escrow, shared some great info about selecting the right Mask to help protect against COVID-19.  The most effective mask should have multiple layers of natural fibers with a polypropylene guard in the middle as a filter.  N95 masks are so effective because they have that filter.  Avoid masks with exhalation valves.  These masks release unfiltered air, so it does not protect others if you are exhaling the virus.  Finally, be sure to wash your mask every day with detergent and hot water.
