Night Blindness

Q. Recently I’ve noticed that I struggle a bit during nighttime driving to clearly see what’s ahead of me. I can see everything, but sometimes certain things seem to be slightly blurry. I’m going to get my eyes checked out but a co-worker of mine told me that I just may be dealing with a symptom called night blindness. What can you tell me about this? Does it only affect people while driving?

Time Management

Q. Our company is working on a program to help our office staff manage their time better. As part of this initiative, I thought it would be great for me to encourage our sales staff, who are on the road most of every day, to develop better habits when scheduling appointments and meeting their daily goals.

I have some ideas that I want to implement, but thought I would touch base with your team to see if your company has any recommendations as well.
