The magic in showing gratitude

The magic in showing gratitude

November 18, 2021

Until a few years ago, I placed myself solidly in the “Christmas is the best holiday of the year” camp. For me, Thanksgiving was a stop on the way to Cookieville and Christmas Tree Town. But, as the promise of new toys became less interesting, I realized that Thanksgiving has its own kind of magic. It’s slow and subtle, but Thanksgiving reminds us all to stop and say thank you. To be grateful for what we have and what others give us. (And of course, to eat lots of mashed potatoes.)

Until a few years ago, I placed myself solidly in th...

The power in seeing people as people

The power in seeing people as people

November 11, 2021

Assuming you don’t see people as aliens or subhumans, you might be asking yourself, “What other way is there to see people besides people?” Well, when you are focused, obsessed, and absorbed with your own interests and activities, it’s likely that you are only thinking of the people around you as far as they impact you. Perhaps you see them as competition, or as a roadblock, or perhaps an ally. Basically, you see them as objects and not as the complex, thoughtful beings they are. And that’s a problem.

How the Agile methodology drives project progress

How the Agile methodology drives project progress

November 4, 2021

Pivoting from the status quo can be daunting and deflating. Organizational changes can feel unnecessary, especially as you adjust to the new standard and experience performance and efficiency dips. That’s where the agile methodology comes in: this new structure and way of working maintains the feeling of a traditional organization while inspiring employees to cut through the noise and deliver project results.

Kind, positive, and reserved, Sean Elliott is quick to recognize and appreciate all the blessings in his life. Growing up in Erie, PA, Sean enjoyed what he called a normal upbringing, with caring parents and three older brothers, before starting his accounting career with KPMG in Philadelphia. On the surface, Sean was doing well, but below the surface, a storm had been brewing.

Returning to work from vacation or time off is always a bit of an adjustment. It can be somewhat painful, after spending time away from the desk or screen, but vacations give you a chance to refresh and come back more energized. But how can you avoid feeling so tired again?

Children’s movies and TV shows hold a special place not only in our hearts, but in the collective media of our society.
