I’m one of those people that really like my vehicle to be clean, which means my weekend chores often include washing my SUV. Since I’m on the shorter side, I have to drag out a step stool in order to reach the roof and my mid-section ends up wet, dirty and soapy from stretching to clean all the way to the middle. Needless to say, I sometimes use a commercial car wash rather than my own elbow grease.

Maintaining a motivated and productive workforce is a feat in itself, and as we head into the summer months, focus can dwindle even more. You can't control how your employees work. But there are elements of your business you can control, like the environment you create to ensure productivity is not only enabled but even maximized.

Rick’s boss thinks Rick is both brilliant, and a tyrant. He recently told Rick he is not on the succession plan to become the next CEO because his volatile temper could destroy the company. Rick, like many of us, was one habit away from his ultimate professional aspiration. Ultimately, he retired early and angry, toggling between resentment and self-recrimination at failing to achieve his final goal.
