Be careful – this song will get stuck in your head. It’s a real pick me up song, and so catchy! But we love this track because of the message – it reminds us to stay optimistic when things aren’t going our way.
A one-hit-wonder in its finest, “Better Days” was the most popular song by Citizen King in the late 1990s. We like it because of its clever lyrics and the catchy instrumentals. The lyrics list a series of unfortunate events only to be followed at the end of each segment by “I ain’t got much to lose”. It reminds us that no matter how bad things get or how down you might be, there’s always going to be someone who has it worse – and there’s always going to be a way to make it better. One of the best ways to improve your outlook when life gets you down is with music, and this is why we love “Better Days”! Listen to this pick me up song and remember that there’s always a solution to everything.

We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Be a good leader: Pay attention! Complacency at work leads to less innovation, less trust and less loyalty within your organization. Are you encouraging change? Do you reward failure? Is turnover on the rise? Are you making decisions based on intuition and information? Or, only to relieve a sense of anxiety? (more…)
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
