+Google+ Your Business +Google +Google for Work

Guys, I mean, I love ya'll, but -- wtf? In my work email... Ok, don't bring problems, bring solutions:

The presence of ads makes it hard to ignore the email experience...

As a project manager, I want the experience of 'checking my email' to be as emotionally neutral as possible.

So that, I don't feel as if I can't control one of my most frequently used communication channels.

I have enough trouble herding cats all day long, I don't need another constant reminder that I'm sitting behind a computer screen instead of out climbing a mountain.

Thank you for your time.

Great article. Enjoy!
Opinions can play a dangerous role in the feedback and development of ideas. Executives and leaders should avoid deciding what's right and wrong when teams present the evidence from their experiments. In this post, I'll point out how leaders can use their experience to help teams explore, evolve, and improve the experiments being conducted.

This makes me smile =)

Some things in life must be experienced first-hand before they can be understood...Trying to explain climbing, without ever having experienced climbing, is a fool's errand. 
Since January 4, when the New York Times ran a story about Kevin Jorgenson and Tommy Caldwell's Dawn Wall climb in Yosemite, commenters have lined up in droves to dump on the climbers' attempt. (See AJ's coverage, Why Is Climbing the Dawn Wall Such a Big Deal?) ...

Helpful, friendly, and very accommodating towards non-pros. Some lumber yards are only good at interacting with carpenters, not this place. I'm new to woodworking and they helped me pick exactly what I needed. I will be back. Thanks!
