Work doesn't have to be a four letter word. Blur the line between work and play!
 
Work-life integration is the new work-life balance. http://linkd.in/1Q6UJTO
Every so often (though less often than I'd like), I ask one of my team into my band room, a place I created five years ago where the only rules are honest conversations and unbounded agendas. I built it to nurture my budding interest in playing music, but it's also a great place to pour a drink, erase the white board, and see where the conversation goes.

This is a great, simple lesson on the bass guitar..  One of the easiest ones to understand for me, wow thank you.  Do you have a preferred bass?

That is awesome to hear Martin, glad you feel that way...  In this video, I'm using a Godin Freeway 4...  I like it..  It's also the one I use to shoot beginner lessons cause it's fairly inexpensive, but packs a solid sound.  We'll be doing more videos on merchandise in the future.  

Thanks for asking,

Colin

One of the key principles of our Digital Samurai for Hire program is that more relevant, timely info is better than less in order to make more informed decisions.
 
Data > opinions. Use it to back up every decision you make. #googleforwork

Collaboration is a powerful tool.
 
Here at Google, there’s no shortage of creative uses for Docs. We even use Docs to run interviews. Over 3 days in May, a recruiter worked in real-time to hire an engineering candidate, facilitating live collaboration with interviewees. Rethinking how we use technology in our hiring process has made bringing in awesome Nooglers (new Googlers) easier. #googleforwork

A fantastic Quote. Google is the best example of this strategy put into practice. Who else exemplifies this thinking?

The separate sheets Android app for Google for Work is a great way of working with your data on the go.
 
All your spreadsheets, wherever you are. Work alone, or together, online or off, with the Sheets app on your mobile device. #googleforwork

Google Keep is a fantastic app for capturing ideas, and information. It is specifically designed to be simple and easy to use making it a tool you will use. It is the first app I have used that truly replaces paper.
 
Save your ideas with Google Keep

Work can be chaotic. Google Keep can help. Organize notes, checklists, and photos all in one place. Anything added to Keep is automatically synced to Drive so you can access it from anywhere, on any device. Try it out: keep.google.com
