Hand Curated Workplace News
It may take some seemingly crazy tactics to tame a procrastinating brain, but you can beat it at its own game. The key is in knowing your mind craves instant gratification, which is why it often does the opposite of what you want it to do (aka the akrasia effect). With a few trick plays you can crush long-term goals, and your brain will be none the wiser.
Music can help you jam through repetitive tasks, fill a blank page with brilliant ideas, or calm your nerves before a big presentation. The trick? Finding the right playlist for each workplace situation: churning through tasks (hello, upbeat tunes!), creative brainstorming (50–80 beats/sec is the sweet spot), or leading a big meeting (think highlights reel).
So you’re taking the plunge and switching careers — right on! Just don’t get stuck holding your breath with an old resume. Take your past experiences (each one is valuable!), and reposition them to spotlight your new area of interest. With a bit of research and red ink, your shiny new resume can help you break into a new biz.

Admingling Event Series
Cozy Local Events with a Big Impact
More structured than a happy hour but more social than a workshop, an Admingling event harnesses the power of our community’s collective intelligence. Every after-work event is unique; we work with Ninjas in each host city to pick a space that’s both comfortable and inspiring. Everything from the discussion topics to the cocktails are chosen with local perspective. Attendees share ideas, trade tips, and walk away with actionable solutions and a stack of new professional contacts.

Before we can beat distraction, we need to find its source. Sure, tech and coworkers can hijack our flow, but the real culprit? Our own brain.
