Are you looking for ways to save money, increase productivity/ engagement, and/ or help your organization generate revenue? There are some new technologies available for audio, video, and projection systems that you can add in your space to help your organization be more productive and efficient. Part two in this series reviews new technologies for video/ audio teleconferencing, audio sound systems and sound masking.
We all have 24 hours in a day to accomplish what seems to be an impossible mission: finish everything on our plate, juggle our workload, handle tasks, react to emergencies and resolve crises as they are hurled at us.

Additionally, we need to be fair to our families and not give them the "leftovers." At a minimum we must handle family politics, help with dinner, attend our kid's soccer game, aid with homework and handle the household finances. All the while, we want to be a caring and sensitive spouse. And let's not forget, we deserve a bit of time to ourselves as well. Not such an easy mission.

Here's how several MPI Potomac chapter members define balance.
