Settling into 2021: Tips to stay focused and Local Business Spotlight
Are you back at work after the festive season break? Normally the new year introduces a fresh dose of enthusiasm and focus that lasts throughout January before slowly fading away. Luckily, there are tips and tricks to maintain this energy and stay focused on your goals.
Here are a few simple habits to practice on a daily basis to help you keep the new year enthusiasm throughout the year.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly, eating balanced meals and getting enough sleep
- Take advantage of technology and apps to help you plan your day and manage your projects
- Set up a productive working environment that is free from distractions
- Avoid multitasking and try to dedicate blocks of time to each task
- Set up for the day the night before so that you know your priorities
- Tackle the most difficult tasks first
- Mark out milestone goals and celebrate the small wins
- Read inspirational books
While you focus on achieving your goals, other businesses are doing the same. This week, we shone the light on three inspiring and creative businesses in our Local Business Spotlight.
Here’s who we profiled:
Masks for Medics
Organisations such as Masks for Medics give so many people across South Africa hope during difficult times. This organisation consists of a group of family doctors who have joined forces to provide the necessary care and precautionary equipment needed by the brave heroes on the front line.
With our country experiencing the second wave of the pandemic, the difference made by Masks for Medics and the community that supports them is heartwarming. Find out more about the generous organisation and how you can help the cause by visiting their Instagram page or website.
Ian Burgess-Simpson Pianos
Ian Burgess-Simpson Pianos are passionate about both acoustic and digital pianos. They work with the instruments in various ways, whether it be restoring a Steinway that survived a fire, selling an oriental red piano or tuning an old classic.
The business started off as a ‘one-man-band’ (see what we did there...) in 1997 and has since grown to become the largest piano company in South Africa. Find out more about the musical company on their website.
In Friday’s Local Business Spotlight we focused on the JAG Foundation, an exceptional organisation which has been working for sustainable change in high-risk communities in South Africa for more than a decade. Their projects extend across a wide range of areas, all with a focus on using sport as a catalyst to teach children values and benefits of health.
When possible, the team gets involved in other areas, for example providing stationery for the less fortunate. Find out more about what the JAG Foundation does and how you can be involved on their Instagram page or website.
