    Time Management Tip : Learn to say “no” to good to leave room for great Maybe, like me, you find yourself afraid to say “no” to a request, opportunity, or addition to your to-do list because you wonder if this is your ONE chance to do the thing. Maybe, like me, your constant “yes” is ...

  • Establish Your Plans

    crystalstine.me 08 Oct '17, 3am

    There are a lot of mornings when I wake up and feel frozen, overwhelmed by everything that needs to be accomplished. Lists of must-do and should-do and like-to-do and what-they’re-doing run through my head and I have no idea where to start. What are my priorities? What actually needs ...

  • Plans to Prosper

    Social media is an amazing way to share your story and the work God has given you to do, but it can honestly be a massive time suck. I’ll be honest and tell you that the first thing I do in the morning is reach for my phone to scroll through Instagram. I love the community there, but ...

    You Don't Need A Fancy Retreat to be a Writer

    crystalstine.me 20 Aug '17, 12am

    You see the posts on Instagram. A group of writer friends headed of to some fancy location to “be writers.” An agent who sends their top writers off on a fancy and fabulous trip together. Writers who post photos of log cabins or the English countryside where they’ve gone to focus, wor...

  • Super Short Summer Book Reviews

    crystalstine.me 02 Aug '17, 2pm

    I have a confession to make. I love reviewing books. I love getting books in the mail, I love getting a sneak peek of a book before it’s available to the public, and I love getting the chance to decide for myself if I love it or not before the internet and “best seller” lists start bo...
