To: Internal Revenue Service, Department of the Treasury Washington DC 20001

 

Enclosed is my 2011 Form 1040, together with payment. Please take note of the attached article from USA Today archives.  In the article, you will note that the Pentagon paid $171.50 each for hammers and NASA paid $600.00 each for toilet seats.

 

Please find enclosed in this package four toilet seats (value $2,400.00) and six hammers (value $1,029.00).  This is in payment for my total tax due of $3,429.00.

 

Out of a sense of patriotic duty, and to assist in the political purification of our government, I am also enclosing a 1.5 inch Phillips head screw, for which HUD duly recorded and approved a purchase vale of $22.00, as my contribution to fulfill the Presidential Election Fund option on Form 1040.

 

It has been a pleasure to pay my taxes this year, and I look forward to paying them again next year in accordance with officially established government values.

 

Sincerely,

Another satisfied taxpayer

  

Greetings!

Proper Use of the F Word

 

 

DrudgeryIn a recent conversation I had with an associate in the national rallying community, my friend waxed poetic about his current dissatisfaction with his job. I countered that he might benefit by looking for the fun in the job. His response? "Fun" isn't a word he associates with employment. I know many people who feel that way, and my sense is that they need to take another look at how they are using the F word.(Read more) ...

 How to Change Your Luck    

 

Don't worry

 A University of Pittsburgh study has concluded that optimists live longer, healthier lives than pessimists. The study followed 100,000 postmenopausal women over eight years. Those who expected good things to happen rather than bad were 14% less likely to die from any cause and 30% less likely to die from heart disease. If this has you worrying about an early death, you might just be a pessimist who needs a little lucking. (Read more) ...

How does Rally co-driving prepare you for improving performance in teams and executives?
I am a Rally Co-driver in several series in the Western Hemisphere.  You can read about my racing history at my rally website. When I am competing, it is my job to corral all the best performances from myself, the driver, the mechanics and any other members of the crew supporting us for the weekend.  As you can imagine, as in any racing, egos are strong, tensions are high, and the atmosphere is ripe for interpersonal conflict.
 
I have a track record of co-driving for racers of any caliber (National Champions to first event novices) and delivering results that exceed their expectations. 
 
For the rest of my living, I coach executives in leadership and team dynamics; teams in developing higher levels of trust, understanding and camaraderie; and individuals in making changes supportive of getting what they want in life.  In this arena too, I have a reputation for delivering results that exceed their expectations.

HDClarity is an e-zine for those wanting to develop more of that trust, understanding and camaraderie in their work environment, and their life in general.  A smoother running team is a more profitable team.  It get things done faster, for less cost. 

If you'd like to share some of these insights for developing High Definition Clarity in your daily and business life, please forward this email.
