Words, Words, Words…Ready to Banish Some? It’s that time of year again! Since 1976, Lake Superior State University has published a list of Banished Words. These are words that come not just from the University but are sent in from around the world.  Words that some would love to see banished.   What’s on the list???-Wait, what?-No worries-At the end of the day-That being said-Asking for a friend-Circle back-Deep dive-New normal-You’re on mute-Supply chainThere are a few on the list that I must admit to having used… some that don’t bother me…and some that I had to look up to see what they meant.   As you can imagine, most of last year’s words were related to that virus. If you’d like to see the lists from previous words you can head here. On my Hall of Fame of Banished Words list…-My bad...

  There are dozens of not a few hundred people out there who live on their computer searching the Key West MLS, Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com websites for new listings in Key West. I have been writing about this phenomenon for years. Like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, they seek to find a home in Key West to replace the locals and take up living in Paradise. They make an annual pilgrimage to Key West to search in person walking the streets, looking for For Sale signs, taking phone numbers, calling agents, attending open houses, and talking to locals in bars- they know the real story. Now they are among us. Thousands of them. For months I have been predicting new MLS listings. They just have not materialized in the numbers we have experienced in years. What was predictable, has just n...

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a press conference to announce that if you post one more picture of your cat sleeping, they're going to delete your account." –Jimmy KimmelWhy do we laugh at the movies like "9 To 5" or shows like "The Office?" Humor in the workplace is not new, humor is serious, and numerous studies have demonstrated its importance in sustaining productivity and morale.  Is it even necessary to promote humor in your work life? And if that's your goal, how do you do it without sounding like you're implementing a new IT security measure? According to the Penn Behavior Health Paper, humor promotes a healthy environment. The appropriate use of humor can enhance relationships, rapport, cooperation, influence, and team development.Sales: "Oh, No! She's trying to sell me som...
