How to Prepare for Your Vacation from Work

It's Sunday morning and I just finished approving payroll and PTO to get a jump start on Monday. Now onto my packing and to-do list of things needed to get ready for my summer vacation, but wait, I have a few other things to wrap up for work and this blog is one of them.

How to be Thankful When You Don’t Feel like it – A Thanksgiving Reflection

As Thanksgiving has come and gone I spent some time reflecting. Reflections about my family, friendships, health, job, and in many ways, it is making me think ahead to those New Year’s resolution goals. Now I am somewhat deflated.

Let’s go Have Some Fun in the Sun!

Summer is here! Heat, humidity, and days when we all look out the window wishing we were out at a ball game, on the golf course, or out at the pool. Many of us save those beloved vacation/PTO days to use during the summer when the days are long and there is lots to do

Jedi Mind Tricks at Work

Complaints at work. We’ve all got ‘em, we’ve all heard ‘em. Some of this might sound familiar. Susie is always late. Bob talks too much. Joe makes a lot of mistakes and no one does anything about it. Anne uses her cell phone even though it is against policy. The complaints go on and on .
