This year has been a whirlwind, but we're moving forward with a little aggression.

We love to see more women shattering glass ceilings and grabbing the world by the lapels.

As we try to make the most of what is left of 2020, this is the time to get out of your comfort zone. They only call it a comfort zone because nothing gets done there. 

You are 100% that queen, go get 'em. 

 
In The Headlines:
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has died of cancer at the age of 87, was a passionate, astute and outspoken advocate of women's rights, civil liberties and the rule of law.

As serious as she was about these subjects, she also had a way of highlighting critical issues with humour, embracing her nickname "Notorious RBG" and commenting that she and rapper Notorious BIG had something in common: "We were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York."

Ginsburg's most memorable quote on gender equality was, "My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent."

Sis, do better, be better:

You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums.

We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.
