    Tasking, so time flies if you like busy work.

    Tasking, so time can seem to drag at times

    Advice to Management

    If you offer to give an employee tickets to go to a hockey game if they sold over 25 printers that month, give them the tickets.... or else that employee would probably not listen to a single other request of yours again and then seek and find a higher paying job a month later.
