Why you should be thanking your employees more often

{ object.primary_image.title }}

While lots of people find plenty of time to complain when things go wrong, most do not take enough time to stop and appreciate each other when things go right. People at all levels in the workplace say that “we don’t stop often enough to acknowledge what we’ve done and celebrate some of our successes.” Celebration and acknowledgment are the first steps in the continuous improvement process because, without them, people start feeling beaten down and disheartened. They begin to wonder what the point is and even question why they try so hard when no one seems to even notice their work. That’s a problem because it’s really quite amazing how much people accomplish for each other at work. Read Full Story

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Creative inspiration without the workplace ethics violations. It’s pretty difficult to go outside for creative inspiration right now. So it makes sense that people increasingly turned to Pinterest as a place to organize visual inspo for home decor, crafting, wedding planning, recipes, and a lot more during COVID-19 (Pinterest saw a 13% increase in monthly active users between Q1 and Q2 of 2020, though revenue dropped).

The coin shortage is so bad, banks will now pay you extra for change

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A chain of banks will pay you a 5% bonus for bring in your loose change. That’s better than the annual interest rate return on most savings accounts. As if we needed any more challenges in 2020, earlier this month a national coin shortage hit America . That right, America doesn’t have enough physical change to go around. And yep, you can blame that on the pandemic, too. In short, coins aren’t circulating through the economy as readily as they once were since people are going out and spending less–and opting for digital or contactless payments wherever they can.

Sorry, the COVID-19 vaccine won’t make life go back to normal right away

{ object.primary_image.title }}

If you were hoping that the new COVID-19 vaccines could make it possible to stop wearing masks and social distancing, think again. Pfizer’s new COVID-19 vaccine might get FDA emergency use authorization in a few weeks, and a small group of Americans might begin getting shots in December. Moderna’s vaccine might quickly follow. But even for those who can get vaccinated soon—potentially 20 million people in the U.S., out of a population of more than 320 million—life won’t be able to go back to normal yet. Read Full Story

{ object.primary_image.title }}

It’s often handy to queue up tweets to go live at a later date and time. And it’s easy—once you know where to look. You know, not everything on Twitter has to be right now .

Biden’s tax plan is going to cost me millions—and that’s OK

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Sure, higher taxes may require me to make harder choices, but the sacrifice is minimal compared to the benefits that millions of Americans will receive. This is going to cost me a lot of money. And I’m fine with it. President Joe Biden’s newly proposed tax rates would overwhelmingly increase taxes on someone like me—a venture capitalist for whom the capital gains rate is really, really important. Even though Biden’s plan will take a lot more of my income and offer little tangible benefit to me in return, I still think he’s right. To be clear, I’m not a progressive. I’m not even a Democrat. But it’s also clear that people in my tax bracket have more money than we reasonably need, and that life is just way too hard for far too many others. Something needs to change. Read Full Story
