That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week - Reading Together - Why Boys Struggle with Organization and Time Management

"He’d realized along the way that the better organized he was, the more time he could spend hanging out with his friends and playing golf, in other words, the things he enjoyed doing."
(page 2, Kindle edition)

"What this means is that as their bodies are continuing to develop, boys are being asked to juggle all of these different aspects of their lives without any clear-cut system or method for organizing and managing their time."
(page 5, Kindle edition)

Learning Songs with Rohit

Hello Readers,
My name is Rohit and I am a pianist from India. I have played piano for a long time in my life, and I am a big fan of this instrument. When I first got my hands on a piano as a kid it became obvious to me I was meant to play this instrument. But I had to quit piano for a little over 5 years to pursue my education. But now I am back and starting a blog seemed to be the most ideal way to restart my life as a piano player.

Here is my most recent creation:

Now that you’ve heard me, you know that I am quite good at the keyboard. And I am always trying to improve my skills.

Well, there are plenty of blogs which provide music tutorials. I thought I could stand out by providing a one-stop destination for people aspiring to learn and practice music, with the help of online tutorials.

My piano tutorials come with written letter notes (along with lyrics) and video tutorials oriented towards beginners. I am also creating chapterwise tutorials on understanding the fundamentals of piano. You can checkout my in-depth guide about piano chords and let me know your opinion about it.

My purpose for posting on this blog is to seek suggestions from you all on ways to improve my content and music. If you’d like to check out my blog you can do so by visiting MyPianoNotes.com.

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Making It

"Live a balanced life. You cannot have it all or do it all, at least not at the same time. Recognize that an unhappy personal life often carries over into job performance. Taking care of your mental and physical health is just as important as any career move or responsibility, generally more so."
(page 246, Kindle edition)

"Set aggressive but achievable results."
(page 248, Kindle edition)

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Eating for Business and Pleasure

"When you entertain business associates, it is of course not the same thing as entertaining close friends or relatives, but the responsibilities for the host are similar. Here are some tips: Be yourself. Smile. Show that you are having fun and be gracious and generous, making your guests feel welcomed. Don’t try to overdo it or you’ll be set for failure. Simplicity is best both with your theme/ d├ęcor and food. Planning is key. Lists help. Avoid catering, and personalize by trying to make at least two-thirds of the meal yourself in order to cultivate an intimate atmosphere. Buy dessert if you must. A little bit of foresight for the details will help enormously."
(page 215, Kindle edition)
