5 things to do before you leave on vacation
Updated: September 08, 2014 - 6:54 am

Summer is here, and along with the warmer weather, it means a lot of us will be headed away from the office to take a week or two of vacation with the family. Having a break with your loved ones, or at least away from the daily grind, can be a great thing, but only if you plan ahead. Otherwise, it can easily become a couple of weeks of working almost as much as you normally do, but without the tools and resources you’re used to having on hand.

How to begin each day productively
Updated: September 08, 2014 - 6:54 am

Far too many professionals show up at their offices each morning, bright-eyed and ready to work, with no real plan or agenda for what they’re trying to accomplish. Or, they come in with a plan or to-do list, but without the tools they need ready at hand. The result is that they spend their first hour or two of the day — the time that most of us are more energetic and productive — figuring out what should be on the schedule — or worse, looking for files, office supplies, and whatever else they need to actually get moving.

There is no negative to being organized
Updated: September 08, 2014 - 6:54 am

‘Will Work for Food!” You have probably seen signs like this as you drive to and from your office. Reality is that everyone is working for food unless they are independently wealthy. In the hierarchy of needs, food and shelter are among the first elements you require. A benefit of working is that you are able to secure these comforts. You can then reach higher and attain other benefits.

Vacation starts on Friday, are you ready?
Updated: December 13, 2012 - 10:35 pm

If you were heading off for a two-week vacation this coming weekend, what would you have to do now to get ready? It is amazing how productive you can be in clearing off your desk and your calendar the week before a vacation. Of course, that often means you will be working longer hours each day until then, but the payoff is in sight.

Spring into an organized space
Updated: April 04, 2012 - 10:31 am

Spring cleaning used to be a tradition, especially in colder climates, when folks could finally open the house up to let in a little fresh air and get rid of the accumulated dirt and dust. With the arrival of spring came a new perspective, a bright and fresh outlook both inside and out. Today, with our climate controlled environments, we don't have to go through the same complete turnover, and so we slide from one season to another.
