What’s on Mark Zuckerberg's Desk (And What Does That Teach You About Work)

Blaming poor professional performance on a shoddy desk environment is a bit like the workman blaming his tools. But on the other hand, a well-kept desk both reflects and encourages a tidy mind.

If you think of your desk as just a place you sit to do work, it’ll likely pile high with all kinds of mess and distractions that will hamper your productivity. Taking a few moments now and then to tidy your work area and re-consider the stuff that you keep to hand can help you to shape a…

Why people leave their existing jobs?

Well, there are many reasons why people leave their existing jobs  - One category of reasons are beyond the scope of the employer to address, like employee moving a city because the spouse had to move, take care of children or parents, or go back to college for higher education.

The other category, the ones that are more likely to cause an employee to leave an organization and can actually be addressed by Employer are the ones I would like to talk about.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.” – Thomas Edison
