1. You must see opportunities others haven’t.
2. You must solve problems most don’t realize exist. 
3. Anticipate change, and change in tune with it.
4. Look for ways to pick up new skills, or put the skills and talents you already possess to new and novel purposes.
5. Always be learning.
6. Put off-hours to work by using them to pursue side-projects or interests that can help you build your experience.

Millions of part-time workers in America live in poverty, without healthcare or benefits, while they look for full-time employment.

They’ve been learning from Doan for years actually, via her weekly YouTube tutorials, where the grandmother of 22 can be found wearing her signature black-apron-and-colorful-cardigan combo while enthusiastically giving viewers step-by-step lessons peppered with friendly tips and encouragement on just about every quilt imaginable – from the bordered periwinkle to the flying geese to perhaps her most legendary quilt of all, the jelly roll race (the...

Fishermen have a story that generally goes untold. The reason for this is because it's difficult to articulate those aspects of life on the sea that are beyond language and time. These are highly personal moments that most fishermen tend to keep to themselves.

When hiring, have job candidates worked at a company for many years through ups and downs? That speaks to loyalty, perseverance, and engagement. The costs of employee turnover are increasingly high, as much as 1.5 to 2 times an employee's salary. The longer someone's with your company, the more productive they become over time. Make sure each employee is completely engaged with and part of the company's ongoing success. Furthering your employees' education can help them feel valued, important, and invested in the company. Promote from within whenever possible. 

Another way to measure employee satisfaction is to periodically survey them. Send out a single question to employees - such as, "What is one process that, if eliminated, could make you more productive?" The fact that the employees are being heard, that they are being listened to, is important and can improve retention.

If your employees feel valued and excited about working at your organization, and fairly compensated, they will not want to go elsewhere. Moreover, their commitment and enthusiasm will be evident to your customers. That enthusiasm, that excitement, and that investment comes through in every interaction.
In an improving economy, retaining talent has again become a top priority for businesses. And in the competitive world of IT, organizations that don't understand the cost of employee turnover will pay a steep price.

Introduction

Good Tidings by Lynn Harrison (lynnmwth)

Words of encouragement. Photos of peace, beauty, and joy. 

Artists who have influenced me are: Claude Monet, Gwen Frostic, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Keith Guo Ji Liang, and Annie Vallotton. I discovered the art of Claude Monet on the back of a Reader's Digest magazine. Later, I checked out every book on art and architecture, a few at a time, from the library in Jackson, Michigan. One of my favorite styles of painting is Impressionism, which has such beautiful colors.

I consider myself an interpreter: I edit information for the web, I am an early adopter of technologies and help others to learn, I translate requirements into computer programming code, and I am also a leader in helping people to understand each other. In helping people to understand one another, an important part of this leadership is to develop two-way trust where people are not afraid to speak the truth, where they understand themselves as well as others, and where they can change and allow others to change.

I believe there are no stupid questions, and that the most important attitude to have toward others is respect. I like solving problems, and I’m constantly looking for ways to improve things.

I read a couple of sayings recently that I agree with, and that describe my writing style. The first is: “When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing.” (Enrique Jardiel Poncela) The second is: “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

My hobbies are reading business, technology, local, national, and world news; journaling; writing poetry and prose; reading a wide variety of articles and books; photography; singing; strength training; and studying art, leadership, interpersonal communication, team building, Emotional Intelligence, and Social Intelligence.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, NIV)
