 I would like to start off the month of November and the Fall season by saying thank you to all of our members for working with the Chamber over the past year.  It has been a heartwarming experience and one that I am thankful for everyday.  There are so many wonderful people and businesses that work with the Chamber and give to our communities through service and encouragement.  We have members that show their support through our many committees, attendance at events, sponsoring activities, hosting business after hours and communicating with us on important issues.  By supporting each other, we make a much stronger  community.

The Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce is so much more than a business confined by the walls of our office.  Like many of you, we strive to offer our support outside the office.  Attending your events, participating on committees within the community, staying involved with current affairs and lending assistance when needed, makes a stronger Chamber.

The purpose of the Chamber is to serve the Camas-Washougal community.  By its actions, the Chamber seeks to unite the industrial, commercial and civic interests to bring concerted action to bear on those activities which are broader than any single entity and which promote the welfare of the entire area.

The Chamber is a working partnership of business, professional and governmental agencies, reflecting the interest these groups have in the Camas/Washougal area.  It is an organization of people who believe in the wisdom of coordinating their efforts for the advancement and development of the broader community. 

The Chamber is here to support and assist you in any way.  Our door is always open, so stop in and say hello!  We wish you a pleasurable Thanksgiving Holiday with your family and friends.

I recently found an article written by Chris Bailey on ways to make better use of your time.  I know we all struggle with time management, so I wanted to paraphrase and share his tips.

1. Slow down

Slowing down to get more out of your time may seem counterintuitive, but when you actually slow down, you will find that what you do becomes a lot more meaningful.

2. Structure your free time

People are oddly more motivated and focused at work because of the structure work provides, try structuring your free time.

3. Keep a time diary to see what you’re doing wrong

Keeping a time diary of how exactly you spend your time throughout the day is one of the most powerful ways to discover how you can better use your time.

4. Do less

When you do fewer things, you spread your time over less, and so you have much more of yourself to give to everything you do. 

5. Think about what matters most to you

Everyone spends their time differently. Think about what you really, truly care the most about, then invest your time in what you care about. 

6. Focus on high-leverage activities

Some people invest their time into low-leverage activities (such as watching TV), which they get almost nothing out of, instead, you could invest into a much higher leverage activity, like reading, having coffee with someone you want to learn from, exercising, writing or meditating.

7. Know how little time you have, and live accordingly

You really don’t have that much time when you take into account time working, sleeping, eating, and household chores. Know just how little time you have and make the best use of it.
