Time Management Techniques for Work?

I was hoping some of you would be able to help me with time and stress management recommendations. I've posted in the past about how stressful my job is - lots of competing deadlines, complex/multifaceted objectives, lots of meetings cutting into my working hours, lots of traffic on the way to work ...

Re: Martial Arts Anyone?

Hi again everyone, I'm going to use this thread to occasionally talk about my progress. I have been doing karate for about two months now. This evening I took my yellow and orange belt tests and passed with a B-. I had to put in a lot of extra work to do it, and it still wasn't anywhere near perfect...

Re: Immaturity

Hi Poodle, I won't address the maturity part as Ram already gave a good reply. I'll address the student loan and job part if you are interested in my input. (Source, I'm 29, have a "useful degree," "good job," and $22k USD student loan debt). Student Loans: If they are federal st...

Re: Martial Arts Anyone?

I took my first class today! The owner of the studio said one of the most uncoordinated people he'd ever seen is now a fifth degree black belt! It took him a very long time to get there and he had to work very hard. All I really learned today were some very basic punches and blocks. You know what? I...

Re: Martial Arts Anyone?

Tom and Ram, thanks for the replies! I will definitely choose my instructors carefully! I want someone who will push me to do better but understand that I may take longer to master things.

Martial Arts Anyone?

Hi All, I've been feeling down and unmotivated recently. I think getting out of the house and trying something new would be good for me. I have been researching karate dojos near my home. I think taking martial arts lessons would help me get out of my slump by getting exercise, meeting new people, a...

Re: Life Expectancy For Dyspraxics

I think the Life Expectancy for Dyspraxics is below average, given the problems dyspraxics have including mental health problems. I have suspected that for a long time. It is unlikely that it's caused by the dyspraxia itself but more by the side effects that you hint at such as stress. This is perh...

Re: pokemon games

I've been playing pokemon since about 1998. Currently I am not playing the video game much (Moon) - although my team had Laurantis, Incineroar, and Mimikyu. I've been playing the card game a lot more recently.

Re: Learning to play the guitar?

I have a few guitars, every so often I sort of pick them up and strum a few chords. For me the hardest part is rhythm. The next hardest part is that my wrists get very sore very quickly. May be holding it super awkwardly?

I have all sorts of hobbies - playing video games, making music, and practicing Japanese. I even played on the company soft ball team last summer! I'm really bad at a lot of my hobbies b...

Re: Exercise

Hi Roxy, hi Tim I'd echo what has been said. I'm a fit guy, spend 10 years as a rower and now go to crossfit which I've done for about 2 years. Hi Clumsy! I was a rower for 6 years! (3 in high school and 3 in college). I found I was good at erging but very bad at technique (probably from the dyspra...
