Well, hiya, Heather! I've read My Year With Eleanor and really enjoyed it. Plus it was the perfect "palate cleanser" between two books about awful teenagers (The Husband's Secret & The Dinner).

@ginidietrich Well, in an ideal world...

Where's the mic drop?

Maslow's hierarchy, while true in theory, is a little too neat for real life where each day your (and your community's) needs are in flux. A pyramid just can't account for all the mingling of our needs. Maybe a jungle gym would be more appropriate? Or a corn maze. Definitely a corn maze.

@Eleanor Pierce Yup, including folks who aren't "customer facing" because their attitude is reflected in their interactions with the folks who are customer facing and, if you're note careful, bad mojo can slip out where you least expect it.

@LauraPetrolino @ginidietrich @KateNolan My DDR skills are a bit rusty and could probably use some refreshing! I think it's been probably been 6-7 years since I've played DDR.

@ginidietrich @Eleanor Pierce @KateNolan I actually think defined goals, especially when they're defined by both employee/employer, are awesome. It's just Gini's, um, competitiveness, that scares me. :)

@ginidietrich @KateNolan Because by the time I got in to my car, there wasn't enough time to stop and get coffee before I had to be at work for a press ok. Though it turns out I missed the press ok and should have just gone back to bed.

Hmm... Maybe 2014 was the brush clearing year, ya know? Periodically you've got to burn off the stuff that isn't helping growth and now that that's gone you can go out in a blaze of glory. Wait... that analogy didn't work the way I was thinking it would.

@ginidietrich @KateNolan @RobBiesenbach This weekend already broke my car. I can't manage any more. Plus it meant no coffee unless I drink the crap office coffee.


So, NO!

@Eleanor Pierce @KateNolan This is true! Though, I have to admit, it took me a couple of re-reads to not read 'lead' as 'led'. Must be my mother's journalistic genes rubbing off because I didn't last past junior high on the newspaper!

@belllindsay @Eleanor Pierce Actually, Ellie, you have a secret weapon up your sleeve: Baby Pie. I'm fairly certain you could just include a pic in each post and you'd rocket to the top. :)

I was wondering why there were no Gini posts. Considering she gets 150 comments about a toenail, I couldn't believe she wouldn't be in the Top 11!

OMG. The dinner thing. Sigh.


I haven't decided if I do or don't like the Holdernesses (Holdernei?), but I'm really hoping they can survive "reality" TV.


Also SIXTEEN DAYS??? Sigh. This is why I need to work for myself.

OK, now that I've gotten my "bah humbug, where's my coffee?" drivel out of the way. (And completely missed Diana.) This looks really interesting. I definitely like the idea of using a novel form for highlighting business principles.

Hello, Carrie! Did Gini send you the cupcakes you were supposed to get for your Inquisition Day? She always forgets those... Props to you for standing your ground on the results. Better you go your own road than one that is a mudpit. I have Chris Brogan's book on my (ever growing) TBR list.

Well, I am a whopping three days late on this and, yes, I know I'm perilously close to losing my S.S. Crazy status, but "work" Christmas should be taken care of this week and I should be able to return my regularly scheduled "Crazy-dom" soon... ANYWHO!  How-de-do, Chel! Nice to (virtually) meet you.

I guess it's time to find out who this Cumberbatch fellow is, so I've added Sherlock to my Netflix queue and Shambhala has gone on to the TBR list!

Also, love your answer to the 10 years question. If it would affect lasting change, then yes!
