7 Ways to Show Appreciation for Your Employees
2 Critical Things You Must Do to Meet Your Goals for the Year
Did you know that 79% of employees quit their jobs because they do not feel appreciated? As I write this, unemployment levels in the US are extremely low. If one of your top performers quits, it’s going to be hard – or even impossible – to replace them.
So, how are you appreciating your employees? If you think you could improve, here are seven ways to show appreciation:
How to Achieve (Not Just Set) Goals for Career and Life Success
What are two things you want to accomplish this year? One can be personal and one professional. Write them down! Make sure you put those goals in a visible place that is front and center.
What Is Your 2019 Word of the Year?
I was at a luncheon two weeks ago, and a friend said to me, “I looked at my Word of the Year card yesterday and realized I achieved both of my goals this year!” The smile on her face could not have been bigger. What a great feeling to achieve goals!
If achieving not one but two big goals in a year sounds like a pipe-dream, here’s a little secret for you: It’s all about the power of intention.

When I talk about my word of the year and setting goals, people often ask me what comes first – the word or the goal. There is no right answer. Both are important, so it doesn’t matter which comes first. Some years, I start with the word. Some years, I start with the goals.

Sleep Your Way To a Higher EQ
When you were a child, you probably set goals all the time without realizing it. “I want to get A’s and B’s – nothing lower – in school.” “I want to save up enough money to buy Nintendo for X dollars.” “I want to master throwing a curve ball.”
Even back then, you knew that setting and achieving goals helped you make the most of your life. As an adult, that same principle now applies to you both personally and professionally.
Sleep is one key to higher emotional intelligence, or EQ. While you are sound asleep, your brain is at work shuffling through your memories and storing or discarding them. This shuffling process results in two things: dreams and an alert and clearheaded mind when you wake up.
