It’s too darn cold outside. (For my readers outside western Canada, it’s been below -20C for too long here.) There’s something about cold weather that does more than slow down our bodies and our cars, it grinds our businesses and our people down too. Perhaps it’s time for a short-term sprint…something to add excitement and focus.
