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.

Pet Peeve: Not Using Turn Signals

Q. I read last month’s submission by Dennis from Louisiana and your response to him. I have to tell you that drivers not using their turn signals is a pet peeve of mine. It happens way too often, is inconsiderate, and, most importantly as you pointed out, way too dangerous! I thought you might like to see this short video of a TV news report identifying just how serious a matter it is: https://youtu.be/zBsaWmOA_Qk . Please continue bringing this issue up on a regular basis. Maybe you can have an impact on your readership.
