Time To Engage In New Year Strategies

Every executive and manager needs time to plan for the New Year. So make arrangements for hosting a retreat to prepare for the upcoming year.
Advertising & Promotions:
Get a head-start on your comprehensive media campaign for the new year. You may opt to pre-pay for your 2006 advertising and promotions, and expense it out in the present tax year.
Capital Expenditures:
Whether it is roof repair, office expansion, new equipment, or items for the warehouse, these costly expenditures are necessary for business growth.

Barter may be the solution to conserving your cash while improving your facility. You may also opt to pre-pay service contracts for 2006. (For more information on profitable year-end barter strategies contact your trade broker.) — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

There's More Than One Type Of Boredom

The journal Motivation and Emotion says there are five types of boredom, varying from a calm and pleasant experience to something more like depression. According to the journal, boredom is the most common human emotion.
Here’s a quick look at the five types of boredom:
Indifferent Boredom:
This is considered a pleasant form of boredom. It’s like "zoning out" on the couch in front of a marathon of trashy, reality TV shows.
Calibrating Boredom:
It's like daydreaming. Letting your thoughts wander, or you're open to new ideas but don't feel any motivation to actually get up and do something.
Searching Boredom:
Ever responded to the question "why did you do it?" with "because I was bored"? Then you have probably experienced searching boredom. People who experience searching boredom are highly motivated to find a more interesting activity. And it can lead to innocuous behavior like texting a friend or may even prompt violent or risky actions. It can also result in highly creative and positive actions.
Reactant Boredom:
Trapped in a boring lecture or a never-ending meeting? When you can't change your circumstances — by getting up and leaving — your boredom may be accompanied by restlessness and aggression, along with the desire to do something else.
Apathetic Boredom:
This is a very unpleasant form of boredom, accompanied by a lack of motivation. It seems to be similar to depression, and it may have more negative consequences than the aforementioned other types. Apathetic boredom can be assumed to be detrimental for personal psychological health.

Creating The Ideal Business Sign

Whether you're looking to change your company's image or not, a new sign may be just what you need to grab more attention and boost your business. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you think about a redesign of your company's sign.
Keep It simple. When it comes to copy, less is better because people simply cannot read much copy when they race by in their car. Certainly it’s okay to put your logo on the sign with your business name, but avoid the temptation to add anything else — even your phone number.
Consider Surroundings. If there are numerous other signs at about the same height as yours, consider mounting it higher or lower, or use different style lettering — anything to make it stand out.
Be Bright. Red and yellow coloring attract the most attention. Unique color combinations are another way to catch someone’s eye. The type of lighting is also important. Neon attracts attention and establishes a contemporary image.
Bigger Is Better. A good rule of thumb is to get as big a sign as you're allowed by local ordinances.
Get Tough Materials. Aluminum and polycarbonate materials are the best in the long run. Consider the following: weather conditions, the sign's location, required life, appearance, and your budget. Consult with your trade exchange broker for sign companies within the exchange.
Maintain Your Sign. A well-maintained sign projects a positive image. Normal cleaning can be done by yourself, or through a maintenance company from the exchange.
 In closing, think of your sign as a billboard advertisement. If it’s electric, leave it on 24-hours a day. You can also complement your main sign with a “sandwich board” outside your shop, and decals or painted signs on your company vehicles.
