When Did We Lose The Ability To Say No? Do we even believe we can say no?  Do we think if we don’t give away our private information, we won’t get what we want? Or more alarmingly, do we just not care anymore?

Bits Bots & Bytes: April Newsletter 2019 I still remember the first time I got the call. I was in the middle of a meeting and a number I didn’t recognize came through my cell phone (this was before we knew not to answer numbers we don’t recognize.) “Hello, Is this Hillary Spear?” “Yes….” “Did you just buy something from Kohls in Chicago?” Since I live in Pennsylvania, it was a pretty fast “NO!”

December 2018 There was something that was running through my mind but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Winter, Christmas, Hanukah, New Years... what do they all have in common? My immediate thought is snow and cold temperatures. But then I think of all the people in warmer weather, where I’ve seen cactus’s used as Christmas Trees, and realize it must not be that.

Are You Productive? Productivity -  what does that even mean? To some of us it’s a bad word, but to others it’s a goal to live by. Maybe you have a job that requires you complete a certain number of pieces every day or make a certain number of phone calls. Even if there is not an exact scale to measure I’m sure each of us has an internal gauge telling us whether we have been productive.
