Culture Values

Here’s a broad topic getting lots of traction these days: Culture values. Companies of all sizes are spending time and energy creating culture statements, then revealing them with a big splash. But then what? How are they implemented? Is this something to help...

Workplace Humor

Editor’s note: Read this all the way through. Do not stop after the 2nd paragraph because you started feeling glum. Did you hear the one about the priest, the rabbi and the printer? Yeah, we didn’t either. That’s just a bad lead into why humor in the workplace is...

But seriously, why should you undervalue your time?

Can we all agree that time is our most precious commodity? We contend that how you spend your time is exponentially more valuable than how you spend your hard earned dollars. Money mistakes can be corrected, but when you lose time, it’s gone forever. As an example, why do some people think saving $50-$75 to fly out of RDU instead of ILM is such a great idea? A round-trip of approximately 6 hours, coupled with wear/tear on your vehicle plus the price of gasoline becomes expensive and we haven’t even calculated the value of your time. Apply a dollar value to your time; hypothetically let’s say you’re worth $25/hour (we’ll write about low self esteem in another blog); your trip up the highway and back has a $150 value!
But we digress.
