++#JPLOGAN: #Business #Busyness by #BenjaminCardullo

Since the introduction of technology, working professionals are expected to be available around the clock.

Motivaional-Fear-Love

“There are two basic motivating forces” by Brian Tracy  There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life.
