4 Tips On How To Achieve A Work-Life Balance

multitasking

It’s hard to miss the growing work-life balance trend. It’s almost an obsession that we’ve gradually developed– and it isn’t a surprise. Technology has effectively blurred the line between one’s personal life and work life.

While technology has made work and life easier, the resulting side effect, according to Stats Canada, is that technology has actually made workers less happy. When it’s easy to access work documents and colleagues online with a simple browser, it allows us to willingly invite our full-time day jobs into our personal life.

This isn’t new, but add to this the ability to work from home, wifi hotspots that allow us to check emails, and trends in creative and laid back work environments, it just becomes easier and easier to keep working.

If you’re looking to take charge and shift things around a bit, we’ve got 4 quick tips on how to go about getting your work-life balance in check.

What Budding Data Analysts Need To Know About Working With Big Data Tools

Tools for Big Data analysis

In some cases, employers may use the term “Data Analyst” to refer to an entry-level data scientist. Thus, a data analyst may be expected to take on the role of a data scientist, but at a junior level. In essence, theirs is a more technical role. They make discoveries from huge datasets, bringing structure to formless data and making analysis possible. They can find, manipulate and join data sources with other sources and clean the resulting dataset.

The work of a data analyst isn’t bound by industry. Analyzing data demands pretty much the same process everywhere, regardless of the nature of the data being used. You ask a question, do your research, get the relevant data, and explore it. Then from there you come up with a hypothesis on that data, start modeling, validating and drawing conclusions from it. Lastly, you reach the reporting stage where you visualize, summarize, and interpret that data.

Google Docs: Beat Annoying Collaborators at Their Own Game

Google Docs Frustration

Collaborating with colleagues on a document in Google Docs has a lot of advantages over going solo. A fresh set of eyes and multiplied brain power can correct typos, improve grammar, enhance sentence structure, and pick up on where simplification or clarification is needed.

The truth is the blanks start filling in much faster when multiple, different-colored cursors blink on the Google Docs page than when a lonely, black one does.

Yet, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

An influx of new ideas and angles on a topic can turn a good article into a stellar piece of content, whether it’s a business proposal or a light-hearted blog post.

Strangely enough, that same variety of characters trying to produce one coherent writing on any given subject can make a grown man cry from frustration. Think of comments pointing out problems without offering solutions, unnecessary edits just for the sake of “contributing”, nonsense additions because of the misunderstood points, etc.

What we’re trying to say is that being on the same page literally doesn’t always mean being on the same page metaphorically.
