Why is it so hard to give yourself permission to rest?

– Sarah

I think we’ve all been brainwashed when it comes to our approach to working. Well, I certainly have.

In every job I’ve worked, there’s been an attitude of go-go-go, get the work done, and if you have time left over, get some more done. Don’t slack off, because that raises questions about your level of commitment, your dedication as an employee. If you’re a conscientious person – as all my school reports told me I was – then you’re probably particularly susceptible to this kind of thinking.

Starting my own business has challenged so much of my thinking when it comes to work. And lately, this issue has been top of the list.READ MORE

New year, new goals

– Sarah

Hello and happy 2018!

We hope you had a wonderful break and that you’re getting into the swing of things. Those first few days without an afternoon beer and nap can be tough.

Because no one feels like writing (or reading?) a lengthy, technical post so early on in the year, we thought we’d ask each pomegranite the following two questions:

1) Describe your holiday in one gif.

2) What are you most looking forward to (work-wise) in 2018?
