Peak Performer’s Life: Should I Invest My Time?

Express Employment Professionals has partnered with motivational speaker Walter Bond to  do weekly short videos in a series entitled “”Peak Performer’s Life”. These videos focus on a wide variety of leadership, career, and personal growth topics.

According to Walter:

“Productive people focus on the most important task. Busy people are busy all day long … but they’re doing non-valued tasks. And as a result, they don’t have that exponential growth. So, every time you do an activity, ask yourself, ‘Should I be investing my time into this right now?’”

This short video is about time management. I recommend that everyone take the 7 minutes to watch it.

Have a great weekend!

Avoid St. Patrick’s Day Hazards

Avoid St. Patrick’s Day Hazards

saint-patricks-day-beer1For many Americans, St. Patrick’s Day is a time for friends and family to come together to celebrate Irish history and culture. But as many of us are aware, these types of celebrations can lead to risks on the road.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one person is killed in a drunk driving accident every 51 minutes in the U.S. Most of these crashes involve drivers whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is almost twice the legal limit. Since 2006, more than 700 people were killed in drunk driving crashes nationwide during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. St. Patrick’s Day may be a time to celebrate, but please be sure to celebrate responsibly to protect yourself and others.

If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or simply plan to be on the road this weekend, your friends at Provencher & Company would like to pass on some safety tips that can help you and your family avoid a serious accident:

  • Before you drink, know how you will be getting home.
  • If you drink, don’t drive. Designate a driver; call a taxi or a sober family member or friend.
  • If you are hosting a celebration, keep an eye out for your friends. Do not let them drive impaired.
  • If possible, avoid driving late at night or in the early-morning hours both Saturday and Sunday.
  • While on the road, stay away from any driver that seems to be driving erratically.
  • Call the police if you suspect someone to be driving under the influence.
