The top 5 list of the most popular self-growth goals grouped by countries

NEW YORK - November 15, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

A recent in-app survey by the Headway self-growth app, covering over 1M users, shows that people from the U.S., the UK, and Australia share a top self-development goal — to be more productive. 

On the brink of recession, 63% of Americans focus on maximizing productivityEarning more money and being healthy rank #2 and #3 on the priorities list, followed by the strive for happiness. The goal to win at work didn't even make it to the top 5, despite being a suggested option.

"Productivity is not about doing more. It's about doing less but focusing on what's most important," Anton Pavlovsky, Founder of Headway EdTech startup

Experts highlight redefining the concept of productivity, as people tend to resist hustle culture and the "living to work" approach, opting for wellness instead. 

"I've been practicing being honest with myself and stepping back in different situations. The idea is saying no yes, either YEAH, TOTALLY! or no, as writer and programmer Derek Sivers recommends. It's not easy, especially at the beginning, but useful: it helps me not to waste time on things I don't want or need," comments Anton Pavlovsky, Productivity Expert and Founder of Headway EdTech startup.

Instead of diving into hustle or falling into the trap of procrastination, it's better to go deep inside and realize what is best for your efficiency, mental state, and well-being. 

"We were taught that the more you do, the better, but that's far from the truth. Real productivity is being able to get better at what we do and so, therefore, achieve more in less time," says Jon Prince, Mindset Coach.

This approach radically alters our understanding of productivity. While striving to do more often leads to exhaustion, aiming to improve the quality of your skills and focusing on what is important will result in higher efficiency and overall satisfaction.

"Keeping a mindful approach to work, rest, and balance is essential. You need to relax well to work well. If you are overloaded with dozens of tasks, completing all of them at the cost of overtime will lead to poor quality. I believe that productivity starts from prioritizing work, focusing on the main tasks, and doing them the best way possible to be happy about both the process and the results," highlights Mariana Boloban, Career Expert and Head of People at Headway.

Recent release "Jesus and Mary on the Bittersweet Path: 10-Day Walks through the First Christmas and the First Easter" from Covenant Books author Jeffrey Watson is an ideal gift that completes the Christmas stocking or Easter basket for curious Bible readers or for anyone who loves the gospel story.

BOWIE, Md. - November 23, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Jeffrey Watson has completed his new book, "Jesus and Mary on the Bittersweet Path: 10-Day Walks through the First Christmas and the First Easter": a fascinating work that blends biblical and cultural insight from the first century.

Author Jeffrey Watson is a gifted storyteller, with his skills rooted in frequent trips to the Middle East and his education at Catholic University (MA), Dallas Theological Seminary (DMin), and University of Maryland (Ph.D.). Watson serves as the director of operations for Erickson Senior Living and as adjunct faculty at the University of Maryland (UMBC).

Author Jeffrey Watson writes, "It is commonplace for us to picture Jesus as a thirty-three-year-old at Calvary; after all, His execution took place on April 3, AD 33. The bigger challenge comes with pinpointing His birth year."

He continues, "To guide us on this journey, we discover four things: (1) the Gregorian calendar, our system of "BC-AD" reckoning, doesn't take hold until the late Middle Ages; (2) furthermore, in the Gregorian method, there is no year zero, yielding us only one year between 1 BC and AD 1; (3) King Herod I, Jesus' first persecutor, died in the spring of 4 BC but was alive at Jesus' birth; and (4) Herod interrogates the Magi about (a) the original timing of the star and (b) the exact birthplace of the King (c) before reflexively unleashing a mass murder of Jewish boys, toddler age and down."

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Jeffrey Watson's new book invites readers to walk the bittersweet path, joining Jesus and Mary on that unique journey from the first Christmas through the first Easter.

This captivating work also features stunning artwork by artist Mary Evans.
