    Some people are intimidated by mangoes as they are unsure as to how to prepare them. Cutting a mango doesn’t have to be difficult. Mangoes are one of the easiest fruits you can cut and require little to no knife skills. Don’t deprive yourself of this yummy, exotic treat and follow these easy steps on how to cut a mango in only one minute. Make sure you pick out a mango that is ripe. Just push down on the skin and if it leaves a dent, then your mango is ready to slice. If the mango is still too firm, just leave it out for a few days to ripen first. Just remember that the riper it is, the sweeter it is.

      1. There is a big seed or pit in the middle of the mango. You will want to slice the mango vertically as close to the seed as possible on one side.

        2. Slice the other side of the mango so you end up with three pieces (two end pieces and one middle piece with the seed). Try to stay as close to the pit as possible so you get more meat.

          3. Take one of the end pieces and score three lines across to divide it into three equal parts. You are only cutting the flesh of the mango and keeping the skin intact. Do not cut all the way through.

                  7. Using either a peeler or a knife peel the skin off the middle piece (the seed or pit piece). You can stop here if you like and just gnaw on the seed piece or move on to step 8 for one extra step. Depends on your eating preferences.

                    8. Slice the remaining flesh off the seed. Try to remove as much flesh as possible so you’re not wasting anything. You should end up with two pieces on either side of the seed.

                      9. Enjoy your yummy mango. You can either peel the mango pieces off the skin or just eat them straight off the peel. The mango cubes should come off relatively easily without wasting any of that precious meat. If they don’t come off easily, you can either use your knife or if that makes you nervous, just use a spoon to scrape off the cubes.

                      How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                      How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

                      Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

                      The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

                      The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

                      Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

                      Review Your Past Flow

                      Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

                      Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

                      Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

                      Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

                      Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

                      Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

                      Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

                      We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

                      Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
