  1. Involve yourself in decisions big and small: Beyoncé started her own company, Parkwood Entertainment, to have complete control over her brand and to show women they could take matters into their own hands.
  2. Surround yourself with good people: Beyoncé surrounds herself with smart people who help spark the creative process and who help her make sure everything gets done.
  3. Do the unexpected: Defying expectations, Beyoncé released an album with no previous marketing and that album debuted at #1 on the Billboard U.S. chart and later earned an Album of the Year nod at the Grammy’s.
  4. Stand by your ideals: Beyoncé doesn’t shy away from discussing politics, race or gender inequality. She donates and stands strongly behind causes she cares about, even incorporating messages into her music.
  5. Control the narrative: Beyoncé is notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to the press and social media — and this means she’s in utter control of how her brand is presented to the world.

Check email only at set points during the day. 
  • you may decide that you'll only check your email before lunch, and at the end of the day.
  • you can also reserve time to read and respond to email after a long period of focused work, or at the time of day when your energy and creativity are at their lowest.

Also, explain to your colleagues/boss/clients that you only check email at certain times, and that they can call you or use instant messaging if the matter is really urgent.

The Gift Of Our Unique Abilities

We all have unique abilities and skills that are unlike others. Instead of ignoring our strengths and pursuing stuff which may not be right for us but is what others are doing, we do injustice to our key skill or gift.

We need to find a purpose that aligns with our skills.
