Do Not Interrupt The Person Who Is Doing

This past week was insanely busy for me.

I started the week off-campus as part of a school accreditation team and returned to a ton of work. Good work mind you – but there was a lot of it.

So in the spirit of getting work done I’ll simply share a few articles I found interesting this week.

Hope you have a great weekend!
