We continue to pivot, we continue to adapt, and we continue to understand how 'normal' is not really normal compared … Continue reading A New Year, A New Vision

Schedule by Subtracting?
Do you like planning and scheduling? For many who are like me, planning and scheduling can be both exciting and nightmarish. If you are at all in tune with the Myers-Briggs material, much of this is due to that last letter in your profile. I am a slight 'P', which means I lean towards the perceptive … Continue reading Schedule by Subtracting?
