Do You Have Pet Panic?!

  • A new survey found that pet owners have ‘pet panic’ 6 times per month on average!
  • Trevor felt like that was really high. Shags feels like if you don’t panic at least 6 times a month you don’t care about your pets (of course, Shags does not have any pets… so… )
  • The top panic moments are caused by: unexpected puking, seeing them fall off something high up, when they slip the leash, or when they dart out of the door.

An Olympian Says You Should NOT Give 100%

  • We’ve all heard from bosses and coaches “Let’s go out there and give 110%”!
  • Beyond that not making sense, it may be terrible advice.
  • Olympic Sprinter Carl Lewis shares the 85% rule
  • By giving 85% to your work, you become more flexible, present, and creative and help avoid burnout.
  • Shags shared that he’s been giving 69% here at work that we would not be able to handle him at 100%
  • Trevor hurt himself with the eye roll that immediately followed.
