Does your workday spark joy?
Greetings, Ninja!

It’s been a few years since we first sifted through all our possessions, keeping only those that sparked joy. But KonMari 2.0 is in full swing, and it’s got all of us thinking about how to apply the Japanese art of tidying to our workdays.

What’s your vision for yourself at work? In other words, what’s your career equivalent of a drawer of impeccably folded t-shirts? (The question may seem a little out there, but you never thought you’d find yourself thanking a pair of threadbare socks for their service, did you?)

The KonMari method may require a few tweaks to apply to your workday, but taking the time to de-clutter your tasks and organize your schedule can help clarify your current role and your future goals.

Rock on!

Taking thoughtful notes can help you get the most out of what you read.
Reading at Work Just Got More Valuable [LEARNING]
How do you get the most out of what you read? The simple answer is “take notes.” The better answer is to figure out why you’re reading, acknowledge whether you want to review or retrieve what you’re jotting down, and pick the type of note taking that works best for you.

Why Team Lingo Kills Company Collaboration [COMMUNICATION]
It’s natural for a group to develop their own jargon, abbreviations, and inside jokes. But when internal “languages” become the norm, cross-team communication suffers and even a seemingly positive message can alienate someone who isn’t in the know (especially a new hire).
