Starting each day with this one habit will set you up for success.
Navy Seal Admiral McRaven explains at a university commencement speech why making your bed everyday may be the best way to start off your day.
“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.”
Spring is here, and summer is around the corner. During these longer days of light and warmer seasons, it is a pleasure to take time away from the office and unwind.
You’ve been working hard, so now is a good time to recharge your batteries. Get out in the fresh air, enjoy some recreation, read a few books, get together with some friends, and just relax in general. Your brain needs the rest. Because, science. 😎

Great leaders know how to communicate with everyone – average leaders communicate with everyone the same way. What is your leadership style? What type of team do you want to lead to success?
Leadership is key. When a true leader motivates employees, your team has the opportunity to be inspired to do better, to be better. When teams respect their leader and have a sense of job security, the team will deliver key objectives. True teamwork comes into play, and we work as a team to help our leader’s vision come to life. A leader sets the tone for an organization and builds a solid team that succeeds together.

Be your best and hire the best.
Hiring great employees will fuel your corporate culture with positive results, and ultimately affect the bottom line. Think about this for your next hire. Invest in the greatest people for your company.
