The start of a New Year is always a great time to set goals for the year ahead, book holidays with family and friends and make promises that you’ll achieve x, y and z before the year’s out.

We live in a fast-paced world with lots of opportunities to see, do and experience different things. But how are we meant to squeeze everything in?

We work, we want to spend more time with our families and friends, we want to do more fun things, we want to travel the world and experience new foods, sights, sounds and cultures.

But there are only ever 24 hours in a day, so some of our biggest dreams and wishes never happen because we’re too overwhelmed to see them through.

When we set up KnownFour we wanted to offer a flexible working environment for our partners that allowed them to benefit from the support of a dedicated team, cloud-based technology and personal development programmes to nurture development while working remotely in a location of there choice and at a time that suits them and their needs.

We’re huge advocates of work life integration, believing that life and work can be integrated seamlessly as long as you’re in control of how you spend your time.

Which is why this article in the Huffington Post resonates with us, our work ethics and our ethos -

Written by author Jackie Woodside, who has recently published a book titled ‘Calming the chaos: A soulful guide to managing your energy rather than your time’, she points out that everyone has the same 24 hours in the day and that time keeps on ticking regardless of what you’re doing.

She states that we should manage our energy better, focusing on the task that we’re working on and enjoy that brings, rather than worrying about the other things we need to accomplish that day, week or year.

Contributing her top five tips on how to calm the chaos and focus the mind shows how we can all achieve a more enjoyable life simply by changing our energy.

Give it a try and let us know if it helps you to change your outlook on work, life and commitments, to calm the chaos and feel less overwhelmed with everything we force ourselves to try and achieve.
