I’ve Been Working, Honest!

People who fake working hard can actually be as productive as those nose-to-the-grindwheel types. But it’s an art.

Email is Not the Problem, We Are

I often hear complaints from people with demanding jobs that they are inundated with email it can become unmanageable. Thats because they don’t manage it, the problem is not email, it is that we allow it to assume such importance.

Employers are often to blame, but we are complicit in many of our habits.

There are still some places left, so please sign up.
