    The recent WSJ.com article “More Workers Start to Quit” states that “in February the number of employees voluntarily quitting surpassed the number being fired or discharged for the first time since October 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.” The article also indicates that the number of employees quitting could continue to grow in the coming months.   Apparently, people were waiting to see more jobs show up as possibilities before they made a move.  Makes sense.  In fact, 60% of workers said they intended to leave their jobs when the market got better &#

Step 2:  Identify lessons learned in 2009. List 6-8 lessons learned that you want to carry into 2010.

    Are we becoming less accountable? How often do you own your part? I do my best thinking when I run. And I do my best running when I think – especially about things that get me charged up!
