Here are a few posts I have been meaning to share:
LOVE this quote – oh, so true….
Johnnie Moore shares his thoughts about A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder–How Crammed Closets, Cluttered Offices, and On-the-Fly Planning Make the World a Better Place. Great book title. Here’s a nice wee snippet:
It’s crammed with interesting anecdotes to support the notion of healthy amounts of disorder. One central theme for me is how we attach a certain moral superiority to order, so that sometimes the only problem with mess is that we feel bad about perpetrating it. Actually, there are lots of benefits to disorganisation…
As a sometimes slob, I think the thesis is right on 🙂
Here’s a great blogging conference for you to check out. It’s called the SOB Con 7, in Chicago on May 11 and 12th. Find more details here. Many of our favorite relationship bloggers will be speaking including Phil, Mike, Starbucker, and many more. I wish I could go, but, alas, I cannot. So YOU go and tell me what you think.

OK, I am anxious and paranoid – I admit. When I am away from my computer or traveling, I love taking just a couple seconds to check to see if there are any emails I need to worry about. If not, I relax. I know what you are thinking, "how many consulting emergencies do you get each day?" I know, it’s silly. But in my defense I NEVER leave it on during meetings – I agree with David, that’s rude.
This rant from Cranky Middle Manager Wayne is wonderful. Here’s a slice:
All those claims may be true or not"?¦ but here´s what really outrages me. My limited understanding of the usual HR process tells me that the managers who apparently are throwing spanners in the normally smooth-running machinery of Business were hired by the very directors who are griping about them- so who´s fault is THAT?
I could be wrong, but here are a couple of things that could explain this:…
