From Manager Tools email “Things I Think I Think”.
If you don’t know exactly how your work is noted and valued by a paying customer, you’re not thinking clearly, or you’re too far away from the customer.
Quoting Drucker: Results only exist on the outside.  Inside an enterprise, there are only costs.

This applies to both for-profit and non-profit enterprises.

“Work spouse”

I ran into this phrase in a Think Geek ad, Googled it, and found this:

One source characterizes the relationships as “platonic, close, opposite-sex couplings, with no romantic strings attached.””

Let me just say, I’m happy that my “work spouse” is my actual spouse.  (And, just to be clear, it’s non-platonic and there are romantic strings attached!  🙂  I <3 working from home!
