What about Work & Vacation?

Among the many things I had to memorize early on at the United States Naval Academy were the first ten stanzas of “The Laws of the Navy.”

These so-called laws are really just proverbs written into a poem years ago by Captain Hopwood of the Royal Navy. There is wisdom to be gained from his thoughts, particularly concerning rest and recreation.

Dave Bartholomew | Focus your work day with lists | Business World

What do you do first thing every work day?

When I have asked this question of business people, I usually get answers along the lines of checking emails or answering phone messages. This reactionary way of time organization is not recommended. You are literally allowing other people — the ones that made the call or sent the email — to set your priorities.

Valley News – Jim Kenyon: Thetford’s public works director needs to be directed out of public work

I don’t like to see anyone lose their job. (At least anyone not named Donald Trump.) That said, Thetford’s public works director, Nathan Maxwell, needs to go.

But the Thetford Selectboard lacks the backbone to fire Maxwell, who posted a couple of jaw-dropping short videos on social media last year that reeked of racism and misogyny. In a 13-second clip about why he doesn’t wear a mask during the coronavirus

In Shows Like ‘Social Distance,’ TV Learns to Work From Home
