  • Read about stress in washington, dc
  • Read article “Why saying thank you is more than just good manners.”
  • We’ve got to get serious about not being so serious!We have all gotten so serious, zapped our own fun and wonder why we are so uptight. Studies who when we lighten up and laugh more often we’re less stressed and more creative. Here’s one thing each of you can do to make change fun starting tomorrow. Buy an Easy Button for everyone on your team! Go to Staples or order them on staples.com. Have it on your desk, bring it to staff meetings – even conference calls – and whenever someone comes up with a solution, answers a question, or volunteers to take care of a task, press the Easy Button. It’s quick, it’s fun, and everybody smiles. It says “we just figured something out.”
