Personal development goals

Since Mrs. Peeps is so busy lately (she came home late again tonight!), I have decided to catch up on my management literature reading as part of my personal development plan. With nine lives to live (give or take a few lives depending on who's counting), I have a lot of time to expend. And, clearly my current management strategy is not working as my peeps are running amok!

The first half of the book is about managing your team. Rule 1: Get Them Emotionally Involved. "Work for something because it is good, not just because it stands a chance to succeed." - Vaclav Havel, President of the Czech Republic

According to this book, my life will be easier, my successes will be greater...Sweet. Wish me luck!

Sounds like a good book. I'll recommend it to Lan and Aoife. Well, mainly Aoife . . .she's a bit brighter!

Koko, I think you can apply this to your own life and enjoy the knit.

Dear Koko,

I think your management savvy is rubbing off on the old girl. She had us pretty "emotionally involved" today. Haha!
