Wonderful post Donna. I think one of the hardest things to spot is motivation. Degrees don't give that data.

@KaryD I will pay you $100 if you have a kid and name it Hashtag. Might be the BEST idea ever.

I am really disappointed in this post. Not because the content wasn't great because it was, I just thought the title was misleading. I really thought there was someone named "Programmed Content" who offed someone named "Community." I really wished these social media "celebrities" would be naming their kids wacko names like "Engagement" and "Tweepie."

Yes, like the Taco Bell Doritos taco shell. Sure it sounds interesting and like maybe the greatest invention of 2012, but without tasting it how will I know it is the greatest invention of 2012?

I would say say a virtual meeting can be more productive at times for several reasons.
1. In a board room when I am not listening to you or half listening, it is hard for me to be productive elsewhere, but in a virtual meeting, I can be checking my emails and working while you think I am paying attention.
2. People are always late and disrespectful of time, so a virtual meeting allows me to keep working.
3. It can help with more people being at them.
I think there are way to many meetings period in business though. And I honestly don't care what a kid looks like, if a cat has been petted or if I am friends with a co-worker. Need a friend, get a dog.

Is 9:55 AM to early for a grilled cheese sandwich????? Maybe if there is bacon involved it could be considered breakfastish.

Please, if you are going to try to scam me via email, please use proper English. It makes me want to mark it up with red ink and send it back.
Please, if I am ordering breakfast to go and there is toast involved, please throw in some butter. I mean, who the hell eats toast without butter?
Please if you are a cashier and you just gave me my change, at least give me 1 second to move, versus looking over my shoulder at the next customer.
Please, if you are an ice machine, please just give me my damn ice, versus just making an annoying noise which makes me believe you are working, when you are not.
Please trade Marion Barber.
I think the cause of the person's stress in the picture is because he has a number 2 pencil.

I try to give my clients 3 choices, maybe 4 at the most. They are paying me to give them direction and to create the best results I can for them. I know of an agency that offers their clients 10-12 different choices and not only do they spend a ridiculous amount of resources on the creation of them, it is very overwhelming to the client.

I am loving the title of this article. I think it is hard for a business or anyone to really look at themselves and come to terms with the fact that they are doing something wrong.

I have two. The first would be to block social media period, unless it is in a controlled monitored environment. The second would be to turn work into a competition. When I worked as a loan officer for one of the largest banks in the country, I wasn't a top sales person because of the crazy commission checks. I was because of the production reports they passed around every single day. It literally killed me when someone I disliked had better numbers than me and it made me literally stay until my numbers were higher. If you keep track of everyone's productivity and make it public, your employees productivity will go up immediately, trust me on that one.
