I really like a lot of what Adam Grant, an organizational psychologist, has to say. (And when I don't, I ignore it.😀) I have so many demands on my time at work that I am always behind. I semi-seriously considered changing my standard email footer to "Sorry this is so late"! This little bit of … Continue reading New Messaging to Colleagues
$2.23 CAD per litre of regular gas. Or, for my US friends, $6.49 USD per US gallon of regular gas. Good thing I drive a hybrid and work at home a fair bit. ETA: It hit a new high of $2.34 CAD per litre this week! ($6.92 USD per US gallon). It’s coming down a … Continue reading WTF?

The Primary Purpose As I mentioned in my previous post, we went … Continue reading Our Quick Trip
