[WORK]培养做事高效率的习惯

2 Dec

millionmars-work

动作迅速是良好的行动表现,相反的是懒散怠惰、拖泥带水。因此,雷厉风行是振奋精神、改变行事风格的重要标志。一是严如雷霆,二是快如迅风。雷厉风行的人通常可以按照制定的目标,迅速的落实各项任务部署,井然有序的达成目标。

动作迅速是一个人在行动上展现出的魅力,做事和说话一样,有人啰里啰唆,使人茫然,有人则简洁扼要。动作迅速的人能带给他人充满自信和干劲的感觉。动作迅速的做事是种好习惯。养成后,会自然散发出果断、精进的气质。

想要培养做事高效率的风格:

1. 把工作分类

先做紧急的工作,后做不急的事。在零碎的时间里,做更加不着急、又可以细分成零碎的工作,比如校对、核帐。先做紧急的工作,会在各方面显得更有效率。做零碎的工作可及时发现问题,为以后的工作节省时间。

2. 不懂就要问

在工作问题上要放弃面子观念,无论身处何种级别,都难免遇见让自己焦头烂额或不得其解的事情。出现这样的情况时,要及时向同事或上司请教,不要担心会被别人笑话。若是一直弄不清问题所在,无法迅速解决问题,拖延太久,自然达不到雷厉风行的效果。

3. 对自己要有信心

很多人有好的点子,也想表达自己的看法,但是又担心被人笑话或太出风头而成为众矢之的,所以有想法也不敢表达、不敢尝试。时间一久,自己都忘记原本想做的事。引用一句戴晨志老师的话“不要让不好意思成为你人生的绊脚石,凡是让你觉得不好意思的事都要马上去做,否则时间会把你的勇气完全消磨掉。”记住,YOLO (You Only Live Once)!

个人内心的标准决定我们是什么样的人,只要自动自发的培养雷厉风行的作风,相信在不久的将来就会成为这样的人。当你习惯雷厉风行,自然会拥有果决、正确的判断力。

一天一点,让我们一起将自己培养成高效率的人!如果你喜欢我的文章,记得留言让我知道~ 赞下去是最简单和直接的支持啦!

Perseverance in Raising Gifts of Life [Casual Red Dresses]

20 Nov

It is not easy since day one.

As a mother.

millionmars-padini-kids-2

Ultimately, our children are gifts to us and we have only a small window of opportunity to mould their characters.

What makes the job of parenting difficult is accepting the fact that we are imperfect beings trying to raise others imperfectly.

What we need to demonstrate to our children is that we are raising them with humility while acknowledging that we don’t do everything right all the time.

If you are not defensive but ask for their cooperation in doing what is right, even adolescents will appreciate it.

From the book Why Your Children Love You by Eliza Lian-Ding.

millionmars-padini-kids-5

A lot of times, we are just trying our best to be good mothers. To be honest, most of the time we really have no idea what to do… When you see your children fighting with each other for a toy, what do you do? When your child refuse to take a nap or brush her teeth, what do you do? When your child screams at you at a crowded public place, what do you do? No matter how many parenting books you read or how many parenting seminars you have attended, you can never be well prepared when the child arrives. For every child is different and so as every parent.

Life just changed.

And so as you.

I truly cherish every moment I got to spend with these two little girls. They have (in a way) made me a better person in general. I  have learned to be (and not just act as) a mother and my life priorities are all different now since they came into our lives.

Now as the girls grow, we are having more fun while playing dress up. Their father buys them a lot of clothes in pairs, so I have decided to UP our dressing game a little bit by wearing the matching outfits as we go out 🙂

Their cute casual dresses are from Padini. You can shop it HERE.

My dress has been blogged about HERE when I was in Sydney earlier this year. Instead of its original braided belt, I pair it with a tassel belt this time.

Most of the time, they were having fun together. But getting them to pose properly for a picture is still a real struggle.

Like what was written in the book “What makes the job of parenting difficult is accepting the fact that we are imperfect beings trying to raise others imperfectly.” Many times we experience failures, we are clueless and we have our own weaknesses. To make parenting simpler, maybe what we need to do is to tell ourselves and our children that Mummy is not always right, mummy could be wrong too. When we started accept ourselves and acknowledge our own weaknesses, we will be more able to rectify and make the necessary change to be a better version of ourselves.

【攻气十足】新强势女性的标签

11 Nov

最近网上开始流行起“攻气十足”这样的词,用来形容一种强势女人新姿态。它更强调女性的力量感,不是身体的力气,也无关于雄性荷尔蒙过剩,纯粹是强大、气场足、优秀、够霸气等。
millionmars-suit-5

现今社会,社会风俗和文化背景都发生了极大的变化,崇拜男性风格的心态已经完全改变。“新强势女性”时代:现代成功女性必须兼具“男性”“女性”两方面的特质,既有女性的温柔、感性、漂亮、处事婉转、持家有道的天性,也具备理性、独立、阳刚、内心强大、甚至霸气的男性特质;而她们的着装,也刚柔并济,自由挥洒着“男性酷”“女性美”

新强势女性的穿衣风格,时而娇柔妩媚,时而飒爽利落。

男装女穿的中性时尚,恰恰表现了女人已具备充分的条件,在生活上和工作场所中与男性并肩作战共同竞争。

今天就和大家分享三个中性时尚LOOK。

LOOK 1 飒爽中性风

女性的柔美之中有着男孩的坚强之心

LOOK 3 黑白经典搭配

简洁而细腻 爷们儿一般的野性不羁

两面性女人在职场上跌打滚翻后,渐渐明白,所谓的“成功”只是镜花水月,家庭生活幸福舒适才是真正的如获至宝,而这些其实跟“女强人”并没有绝对的关系。已练就的雌雄同体,亦无需即时剥离,任何时候都能淋漓尽致地发挥女性的天赋或男性的潜质。且不论是真心还是假意,新强势女性没有所谓的约束。这正是男性面与女性面在内心漂游所产生的化学作用。

最难意料。

也成就了女人与男人的不同。

millionmars-suit-5

非常庆幸我们身在这个男女平等的年代,女性可以自由的表现自我,无需再借用男人的身份发表言论或争取男女平权。我们拥有更好的的平台施展魅力,刚柔并济地去改变世界。

这篇时尚博文的产生完全是个美丽的意外。一直想要写一篇描述现代女性进化后形象的博文,却又一直找不到适合的摄影师和造型师。这次真的非常感谢造型师 BVO Makeup 毫无保留的为我设计了这三个干练飒爽却又娇柔妩媚的女性形象。真的让我有种重新认识自己的感觉 🙂

虽然自己已有了一定的年龄,是个妻子、是个母亲、也算是个主管干部,日子过得庸庸碌碌平淡无奇,却感恩时代科技给予的便利,让凡俗如我一般的女子,也能以这样的方式完成心里的梦想。

或许这些照片不能震撼到你们,却是深深的触动了我的心,让我时时刻刻提醒着自己变得更为洒脱和勇敢,做个真正的新时代女性。

Baby Bath Time: How Do You Choose Body Wash For Your Baby?

6 Nov

Consider skin is the largest organ of our bodies, whatever you put on your baby’s skin is being absorbed into her body.

image

Well, when it comes to keeping your baby clean, there are so many choices out there, whether it’s baby soaps, shampoos, or body washes.

So how do you pick the better one?

Sometimes we mothers got so confused by the extensive ingredient list written at the back of the products. So, really, are the soap/shampoos/lotion “safe” for the little one?

Let us first learn about:

Ingredients To Avoid

When it comes to cleaning agents, the main concern is to stay away from

Fragrance

Fragrance is added either to create a particular pleasant smell or to mask the ordour of the nasty chemicals used in production. There is also evidence that exposure to fragrance as a child may lead to asthma.

Anything “Parabens”

Parabens are preservative. They can be found everywhere. Parabens are neurotoxins and are linked to reproductive toxicity, hormone disruption, and skin irritation. Just stay away from it, especially for the babies.

Mineral Oil

Mineral oil is a colorless and odorless oil that’s made from petroleum—as a by-product of the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. It acts as a plastic wrap on the skin, inhibiting the skin ability to release toxins and has no benefits to the skin at all. You can instead choose natural and nourishing oil such as olive or coconut oil to massage your baby.

Although there are still a long list of chemicals that you should try to avoid, but to me these 3 are the major ones for me.

So when we have some basic information on what we should avoid, we become more aware about the importance of making a safer choice when choosing cleaning products for babies. Adult soaps and shower gels often include harsh petroleum-based detergents, but baby wash does tend to be gentler, if not necessarily safer. Ideally, you should choose a baby wash or bubble bath that specifies 100% natural ingredients and choosing organic baby wash is even better!

(It is so challenging to be mothers nowadays, we have to equip ourselves with more and more knowledge about harmful chemicals and ingredients… gosh~!)

For the past two months, I have been using a Korean brand Moonic Baby Line products for my daughters (age 1yo and 3yo).

image

Moonic Cure Bath is made of organic components and 5 types of natural plants. The lavender essential oils is very soothing for both babies and mummy. One bottle can last a long time due to the fact that it’s really concentrated. I can say both babies and I are very pleased with the product.

Moonic Cure Oil With 99.9% organic component, it mildly protects skin without irritation. My younger daughter has sensitive skin, therefore I have to be really careful when choosing the right type of baby oil/lotion for her. Unlike normal baby oil, Moonic Cure Oil is not really greasy, therefore when I first started using it on my babies (and myself), I thought it is not as concentrated. Later I found out that it is specially formulated to hydrate the skin and the formula is easily absorbed and non-greasy. After using for a while I notice that baby has less episode of skin rashes, due to the skin barrier provided by the 99.9% organic components.

image

Moonic Cure Balm contains organic components that moisturize and sooth skin. I use this product for dried skin area and bug bites. The texture of the balm is very light, therefore I need to apply multiple times to the same area to have the soothing effect.

You can find more baby friendly products at Althea Mommy & Baby Collection.

Hope this post gives you some ideas on how to choose the body wash for your baby. Next time when you do your shopping, remember to take a look at the ingredients 🙂
