New Year’s Resolution: Improve personal communication.
Maybe you’ve heard the expression, “Content is king.”
It was originally the title of an online article written by Bill Gates in 1996. But it’s meaning has evolved to convey that our online experience is primarily determined by the quality and relevance of words—whether in audio or text form.
But I think the statement falls short.

I find it interesting that we use the term “20/20” to describe perfect vision, and yet during the year “2020” everything went blurry for everyone.
But some good still came out of this blurry year.
OneSource Virtual created dozens of new helpful resources for you in 2020, including 18 video tutorials, 12 webinars, 6 case studies, 3 white papers, and a partridge in a pear tree.
So before we say goodbye—and for some people, “good riddance”—to this challenging year, we’d like to highlight some of these resources.

It reminds me of a lesson my Mama tried to teach me as a child.

Because the load is so large that it really…
Finding it hard to be thankful these days?
So we’ve come up with a few quick tips that you might find helpful during this season of thanksgiving.
This is not an exhaustive list, but one intended to make gratitude a little more accessible for us all! So, without further ado and in no particular order, here’s what we’d propose:
01 Schedule it
It might feel like putting a reminder about something personal on our calendar seems disingenuous. But important things deserve to be scheduled.
I mean, isn’t that what Thanksgiving is as a holiday? It’s a bookmark on our…
Dear valued customer,
Okay. Push back from your desk or your dining room table-slash-workstation for a 2-minute break to participate in this mental exercise. Many of you are in Human Resources, and this is a very, very human exercise.
If the average lifespan is roughly 80 years, let’s plot 1 entire lifespan into the length of 1 average day. Using round numbers, let’s equate one’s birth with 6:00am—probably about the time many of you woke up this morning.
If you are born at 6:00am on this “life-day,” then your 80th birthday will occur at 10:00pm—probably about the time many of you will turn in…
The climate is politically-charged, especially during voting season. But this email is not about politics.
You’re welcome. [And apologies for the misleading subject line designed to draw you in!]
