What's in Your Tool Bag?
by Allen Vickers, CCE, A & K Railroad Materials

It is impossible to ignore that the internet, electronic devises, and social media have an overshadowing presence in our personal and professional lives - and it is still growing.

Can you recall the last time you saw a student consulting an encyclopedia? Today there is such a wealth of information stored electronically that it would exceed 4,500 stacks of books from the earth to the sun, which is 93 million miles away!

In the summer of 1995 Amazon sold its 1st book in the garage of Jeff Bezos. Today Amazon has more warehouse . . . Read full article

ICEL Chair: People vs A.I. - Why You Should Embrace Life Long Learning
by April Tanner, CCE, Kimball Equipment Company

Recently, I was catching up on some reading I had set aside and found an article about machines and computers artificial intelligence (A.I.) replacing people in the July 2017 Entrepreneur Magazine. The article was not trying to use scare tactics like a horror movie but was putting workers and executives on notice. The message was "People need to adapt faster than ever."

My first thought on reading the first paragraph of the article was this people vs. A.I. thing has been going on a long time. One of my favorite old movies stars Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy; Desk Set from 1957. It is about this very topic  -  a computer moving into the research department of a network TV Station.

Two Simple Life-Changing Tips

by Rita Emmett, The Procrastinators Handbook

Recently, one of our perceptive readers emailed a description of the clutter in her house: "I felt myself being pulled in a million different directions. I felt bombarded in my head with things that needed to get done, yet I became completely overwhelmed when I tried tackling them."

Do you relate to that?

That overwhelmed feeling is a huge cause of procrastination whether you feel swamped by a totally cluttered house, or so much paper clutter that you can't find anything, or a list of things-to-do that looks like it could not possibly be completed in this century or a million other overwhelming projects . . .

Dealing with Difficult People

by Joanne Martin, CCE, L.K.L. Associates

As credit managers we all have marginal accounts that are higher risk. These accounts take extra monitoring, time and care, to be able to protect the balance due to your company. As you know, any account can become past due. In your attempts to collect that past due balance, your customer may give you various reasons for non-payment, broken promises etc. At that point, decisions must be made that the customer, as well as the sales department, are not happy with . . .
