Creating good habits tends to make you feel healthier, more controlled, and proud of what you are doing in this chaotic world of events. It's important to form a routine and prioritize the chores and tasks that your day needs from you. Which is why I am here to introduce the domino effect.
Our days seem to be getting busier and time isn't getting any slower. We fill our calendars to the brim to make sure that we are getting the most out of our day. Since, nowadays, slowing down or taking a break feels somewhat like a weakness.
But here's a good reminder - slowing down is necessary and productive for your health.
We tend to fill our calendar with meetings, chats over coffee, and membership mixers. But then what? Are you getting the most out of these meetings?
Let's Talk Results:

Yesterday we were honored to present at the Dallas ALA Business Partner Expo. We chose a topic that is near and dear to our hearts. The topic of Cybersecurity, as I've said before, is important and often overlooked.
Some of the key points that our CEO, John Alday, and CISO, Alex Morrow, made are listed below.

The topic of stress, and how to handle it, came to mind after reading another interesting blog post from Law Technology Today (LTT). I think many of us struggle with that "work-life balance" concept from time to time. This term has been used to describe the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life.

Social media is a key branding tool for marketing your business, especially in today's digital world.
