Monday Motivation: Are you making a living? Or making a life?

August 7th, 2017 by


What are you working for? To buy some new things? Did you know that buying experiences, not possessions, leads to greater happiness? A San Francisco State University study (2009) demonstrated that experiential purchases, such as a meal out or theater tickets, result in increased greater well-being than material possessions. These experiences tend to satisfy higher order needs, specifically the need for social connectedness and vitality—a feeling of being alive.

Another thing to think about… a Harvard Business School study (2009) revealed people tend to overestimate the influence of wealth on happiness by 100%. When basic needs are met, money does not lead to nearly as much happiness as people think it will.

Let making a living support what really important, making a happier life!

Monday Motivation: Improve Workplace Dynamics for Better Results

July 31st, 2017 by

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
— Henry Ford

“Group dynamics” describes the effects of roles and behaviors on the group members, and on the group as a whole. You may have a very talented group of employees but if the dynamics aren’t working, your company is not receiving the benefit of that talent.  What can you do about it?

You can:

  • Get to know your team.
  • Tackle problems quickly… before they begin to fester.
  • Assign and define roles and responsibilities.
  • Break down barriers that have been erected.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate
  • Pay attention!

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” ~ John Quincy Adams
