Good ideas need time to incubate. So why not procrastinate a while? Do we have the wrong idea about procrastination? In this blog post I try to make the case for why taking longer over an idea - sometimes just leaving your work well alone for a while - may result in better work in the end. 
Procrastination may have played an important role in the creation of some of the greatest works by some of the finest minds in history. Here's how.

It's interesting to know the factors which contribute to our being motivated - knowing them means we can try and cultivate the right conditions! More than anything, understanding motivation allows us to prioritise our time to focus on the things that really matter. 
 
The Science of Motivation: What Keeps Us Going & Why We Give Up

Ever wanted to know the science behind what makes us motivated? And how we can use science to increase our motivation? We've taken three recent studies that reveal a lot about how #motivation works and, more importantly, how we can make it work for us. 
Motivation. It's what keeps us going. But a lack of it is prone to make us give up. Here, we take a scientific look at motivation - can we get more of it?

Hi everyone, I wrote this blog post about the science behind motivation, looking at some studies that reveal a lot about the psychology involved. I learned that there are things we can do to help us become more motivated, and actually, a lot of it is about prioritising the right tasks and working on things which really matter to us. 
Motivation. It's what keeps us going. But a lack of it is prone to make us give up. Here, we take a scientific look at motivation - can we get more of it?

Just need to catch up on the "wonderfully industrious" bit...
 
"I am excessively slothful, and wonderfully industrious - by fits." Edgar Allan Poe #quotes 

We think the key is getting the balance right - sometimes being excessively slothful is incredibly therapeutic. But you might need a helping hand with the industrious part... http://bit.ly/16zuuki

“The Journl app helped us make the most of the day… It was great for busy families and planning a trip, as leaving the house with toddlers can be challenging in itself!”

Hi everyone. I'd love to get your thoughts on a blog post I put together for Journl. I show how you can use the Pareto principle (80/20 rule) to prioritize the items on your to-do list to ensure you're focusing on the most important 20%. What do you think? Would you try this out yourself?
What would you say if I told you that you could gain 80% of the rewards from the tasks on your to-do list by only doing 20% of them? Hopefully that claim has appealed to your sense of slothfulness...

Yes, good point. I will get around to adding to the post some information regarding elimination of non-essential tasks - how to get rid of that 80% tail.

Digital Marketing Manager at mark-making*
Introduction
My love affair with SEO and online marketing started in earnest when I began working with Zest Digital, an Oxford-based digital marketing consultancy. Since then I've been building up my skills and have taken a keen interest in content marketing - writing great, shareable content and how to market it effectively using outlets such as social media.

I joined mark-making* in January 2013, where I've taken a broader digital & inbound marketing role - still heavily involved in SEO, but focusing on content marketing and conversion rate optimisation to a greater extent, as well as overseeing the social strategy.

I've never had a bad experience at the Thai Shire - delicious food and amazing service. It is one of those places that, despite offering a takeaway service, you must sit down inside to make the most of what makes this place great. I always order one of the set menus which is a feast - I'm usually stuffed by the time the third (main) course arrives. What really elevates the Thai Shire (besides great food) is the incredibly friendly service. I recommend it to everyone that visits Chippy!
