Want to be a better boss? Treat people respectfully even if -- perhaps especially if -- they're on their way out the door.
Our society seems generally content with elite professional athletes earning millions more than the average worker. If an athlete can get paid to play adult recess at a high level, good for them. Who wouldn’t want to make loads of money to throw a ball or shoot a puck?
Gone are the days when American workers stayed at the same company for fifty years and retired with a pension and a gold watch. In fact, workers change jobs every 5.4 years, on average. This means we're always looking for work on some level -- even if we really love our jobs.
Put down the Ben & Jerry’s, turn off the Netflix, and unfurl from the fetal position. Whether you were fired, laid off, or passed over for a promotion, we all experience career setbacks. Sometimes, in order to make a comeback, you just have to dance it out.
When you’re struggling with the elusive work-life balance, you’re bound to lose track of something along the way. Or maybe you’re just a disorganized person who tends to forget things. In part three of my series on productivity, I take a look at the app Remember the Milk, which aims to help you, well, remember the milk and all your other important tasks.
It's hard to be happy if you're always playing catch-up, so it's no surprise that Gretchen Rubin, whose last book "The Happiness Project" became a New York Times bestseller, is choosing to focus on how we make and break habits for her next book.
