One of the most important items that any individual can take advantage of to enhance their levels of productivity is a to-do list. Almost anyone could tell you that using a to-do list will aenhance your productivity, but very few individuals can tell you specifically how to use one. If you create a to-do list we cannot, it is providing you with no clear benefit.
Upwork has provided several tips that will help you to make use of your to-do list better. Whenever you are creating a to-do list, it is important for you to organize the tasks on the list in order of the level of focus they will require. Some tasks are relatively simple and do not require a significant amount of energy to complete. Other tasks may require an immense amount of concentration and should be done whenever you are at your peak energy levels of the day. By organizing your tasks in this manner, you will be able to delegate better the order in which they should be completed.
You can also take advantage of a method of delegation referred to as batch processing. Batch processing is where similar tasks are grouped together. If you do this with your to-do list, you will be able to complete tasks that are similar in nature sequentially and better use your time.
Whatever you have a large task on your to-do list it can help if you break the large task down into smaller tasks. In this way, you will be able to motivate yourself better as you can mark off each subtask as you go.

E-cigs is becoming more popular due to its numerous benefits. Vaping enthusiasts will forever be grateful to O2Pur that has made it more accessible. O2Pur did not only make e-cigs more accessible, the company also made it even more affordable. Here are some of the reasons more people are shifts to e-cigs.
- It saves money
- It offers variety of flavors
- It offers convenience (it requires no ashtray and lighter)
- People and organizations are more open to it
- It lacks smoky odor that lingers in clothes
- It doesn’t pose fire risks
- It saves money
One of the reasons O2Pur will continue to make e-cigs available is its cost saving benefit. It saves cost in two ways. First off, it is generally cheaper than traditional cigarettes and while the price of cigarettes keeps going up gradually, the prices of e-cigs are generally becoming friendlier. Secondly, e-cigs can be used multiple times. Another thumbs-up to O2Pur, the company that manufactures it and sells it at reasonable prices.
It offers a wide variety of flavors
Even though there are several types of cigarettes, they all have tobacco flavor but e-cigs offer a wide variety of flavor. There are several e-juice flavors. You can keep changing the flavors each time you vape. Variety is said to be the spice of life and the rule is applicable to vaping too. Variety adds to its fun.
E-cigs offer convenience
With a traditional cigarette, you will always need a lighter and cigarettes don’t come with lighters. You also need an ashtray anytime you want to smoke. Vaping does not require a lighter and neither does it require any ashtray. It comes in a kit and all you need are in the kit. So, vaping offers convenience.
It is free from smoky odor
Smoking gives off certain smoky odor that sticks to your clothes and lingers in it for long. Vaping does not have that since it does not give off real smoke.
E-cigs don’t pose any fire risk
You can’t smoke anywhere that there is fuel because smoking involves real fire. The lighter brings out naked fire and even cigarettes also glow with embers. If the ash accidentally drops on your clothes, it can burn it. Vaping does not pose such danger. This is why many organizations prohibit smoking but allow vaping.
The world of business has become so intense that few companies ever stop to think about the welfare of people from whom they derive their existence. The situation is made worse when there is a disaster and then the high flying multinationals look on as communities suffer under the wrath of Mother Nature, even when there is something they can do. It looks like someone has been studying the trend and decided to do something about it. That someone is Stream Energy.
Stream Cares Foundation
The company has recently drawn the attention of many well-wishers and humans of good intention and mercy from across the globe. The recent disaster that struck several parts of the US but affected Texas the most was a turning point for many people. People lost their lives, property and more. There was hardly a helping hand nearby; as residents of Houston looked on in desperation as the floods and the wind wreaked havoc. Stream energy is one of the few organizations that intervened in the lives of the survivors of Hurricane Harvey and gave back some hope to communities. While Stream Energy specializes in the sale of direct energy as a private company business, it has set up a robust philanthropic wing that has been in operation for a significant period now. Stream Energy has pursued philanthropic activities for over a dozen years. Through its efforts to put up shelters for the residents of Houston Texas, Stream Energy has earned lots of respect from its clients and the residents of the area in general. The company has provided a lot of support to government efforts to mitigate the effects of the disaster.
Stream Energy has devised a plan to give back to the community even more than it has done in the past. While corporate social responsibility is a common fashion to many organizations, Stream engages philanthropic pursuits for strategic business reasons and what it says is a way to grow trust among its clients. The management says that charity work is important, that it provides the much-needed buffer during hard economic times in the company.
