TODAY’S STORIES

Editor’s Thoughts | Resignation in Color | Myers-Brigs Baack in Style | Quote of Day | One Sentence, Saves Hours | Website of the Week (Fall Foliage) | Events | Good of Order


Editor’s Thoughts

This week will consist of around three maybe four in person meetings. We will see what the totals are at each. The last ones had less than 10 in them. Still rather a cautious crowd. pmv

Resignations Can be Colorful

Seems like you hear of folks quitting every day. And many mau not have a plan of future action, they just know they have had enough, There are some interesting moves that some have made in their departure. The old adage, ‘do not burn bridges’ is lost on some of these folks.  And perhaps its not a bad thing if there is indeed a plan, but don’t count on those old boses to be the new customer for whatever venture is undertaken. 

TODAY’s DAY OF…

Seems there are like 7 Days of things on this day, I pick High Five and Hug Day as the pick of the litter. 

 

Myers-Briggs Testing is Back

The Myers-Briggs testing is making a comeback. It looks like some places do want to check out your personality before they hire you. Is that a good thing? Who knows, but the test itself has been around a while and is often looked to check folks out. Except that often it was after a hire, not before. 

One Sentence, Hours Saved in Email

You read here, well ok  on Inc, but apparently adding this one sentence to every email will turn into a huge time saving move. Let me know if it works. 

Website of the Week

Fall foliage is a favorite event to view. As the leaves turn color we are often amazed at the bright colors that sometimes happen. The big disappointment is when we miss it. Sometimes these time periods happen within mere weeks as the climate turns quick. Once the leaves fall that is it. The map on on this interactive website is pretty cool and shows the map of the US and turns the regions the various colors projected dates in 2022.

Good of the Order

I know, such problems we should all have. BUT, it seems tha the new King of England has a few too many palaces. I’d be happy to take one of his hands and have a few friends who I am sure would also help out or friends across the big pond to the east. Hey, maybe some are in Canada or Australia where living is pretty cool also.

Editor’s Thoughts | New Socials 8 of Them  | B | Quote of Day 
Emotional Support is Back | Website of the Week | Down Goes the Tower | Events | Good of Order


Editor’s Thoughts
Taking inventory of your social presence, heck online presence should be a regular event. And it should not just be done once a year, or even twice. Also updates such as headers, photos and even product  or service descriptions should occur at least every other month. Your competition is doing that, you should also.

Eight New Socials to Look At

Buffer, the scheduling app that helps you organize and then schedule your posts across many platforms introduces us to eight new social places to look at. Each of these has a fairly specific purpose or audience. It is well worth taking a look to see if any are a fit. Article is here.

The Japanese Shrine Creates a Custom Water Sanctuary for Bees To Stay Hydrated. We don’t often think of bees drinking water, or needing to as they buzz around our plants. This place serves that purpose. 
Actually the entire website has many great pages and inspirations. And is my website of the day

Editor’s Thoughts
Going to try this as the new newsletter of the day/week. I post on here most days and it gets annoying to get out a bunch, and also it will be nice for you to have it all in one spot. AND no need to hunt down an email from weeks ago. The goal is two-three items a day. A good productive hint. A website that is cool for the Website of the Day. And perhaps a list or steps to create coolness. And if it needs a bit more a link to the section where the details exist.

National Dog DAy

National Dog Day!! WOOF!

Man’s best friend. You knew there had to be a day for this, and today is that day. A dog truly is a different creature. They do have a sense of loyalty to their owner, especially if they are spoiled. If you have a dog please share. I have only had one, still do. Found her in a paint bucket. Have always has a cat, or two or three. She has her own Instagram page also.

bees, honey bees

Honey Bees, Have Their Day Too

Looking for my honey bee video from one the Celebration Days in Glendale. These guys get busy and don’t much care what goes on around them. Pretty cool. Also when my purple bush blossoms they get very busy.

What is cool about this day is that ir has nothing to do with the 20th, but that is the 3rd Saturday of the month, August. Who knew right?

Did you know, on this day, the 17th of August
