I love Zappos.com (online shoe company) because they are a company that treats their employees well and thinks outside the box. Not to mention they have fanatical customer service (Google it). Their CEO/COO have a blog where they explain that they learned everything they know about business from poker. I think this one is a must read. OK this has to be my last post for a while, I gotta get to work on other things.
This is a great post on how to get more done during the day. I guess it is time to go to bed now. 🙂
This is another great article on some free tools to use for collaborating with others.
Lifehack.org does too and wrote a great article called “5 Alternatives to Time-Wasting Meetings” you should check out.
If you have ever wondered how much time you spend in different applications, give RescueTime.com a try. It runs in the background of your computer and records what applications you use throughout the day (for free). I spent 11 hours and 38 minutes in Outlook last week.
From urbanlegends.com – “Comments: Apart from the fact that the poor pooch pictured above is incorrectly identified in the caption as a pit bull (she’s actually a bull terrier), these pictures are authentic. They were originally posted by the dog’s owner on a community message board on May 25, 2005. The terrier’s name is Inca.
“Thousands of quills were embedded even in her tongue,” her owner explained. “The vets worked for quite some time to get quills out and even still could not get them all. The one’s that are left will work themselves out over time. Inca is home and on antibiotics and pain killers.”
In a follow-up post dated July 13, Inca’s owner reported that “she is just fine and has just the odd broken bit come out once in awhile. Other than that she is back to her old self.”
Moral of the story: Dogs and porcupines don’t mix.”
