It’s been a rough week, possibly even a rough month. Some clients claim it’s been a rough few years! I’m not about to debate what constitutes rough, but I will say there are a whole bunch of people out there under a whole lot of stress.

For some people, that is just the home environment, there are more papers waiting on the desk at work.
I have never been great at organizing, but I could organize things just enough so I could [...]
How many times have you heard people say they perform best under pressure? In our society the idea that applying pressure to a situation will reap the best results is very prevalent.
