Productivity On Rainy Days

I am so productive on rainy days. I don't know why, but I am able to accomplish more projects on days that are not sunny! Today I have gone from task to task quickly and efficiently!

Are you more productive on rainy days too?

Magic 8 Ball Management

Have you ever tried magic 8 ball management? Today I found myself thinking about one of the best managers I ever had. He practiced magic 8 ball management! On his desk he had a magic 8 ball and when there was a small decision to be made we always consulted the magic 8 ball!

Both of us took our jobs very seriously. I mean that sincerely. There were times though when we needed to take a step back, and look at the small decision with a little laughter and levity. It was then that we would consult the magic 8 ball.

It was during this time in my life that I stopped taking myself so seriously. I learned to trust myself and the small decisions that I was making. This important life lesson was learned through magic 8 ball management!

I have added a magic 8 ball widget to my sidebar in memory of this important life lesson!
