Two part reason for this note…
1) I’ve been reading through your posts and am really enjoying your insights. Thanks for taking the time to keep up the blog!
2) Would you be interested in receiving a copy of “The No Complaining Rule: Positive Ways to Deal with Negativity at Work,” a newly released book by Jon Gordon? I think you’d enjoy the premise of the book and some of the stats that Jon speaks to… such as how negativity costs companies 250-300 billion a year, according to Gallup. How various surveys say that 70-80% of people hate their jobs. And how more people die Monday morning at 9am than any other time. It’s really a book about developing positive solutions. This is not a bullet points, 10-step program book. It's a real story with characters and drama. Readers learn a ton in the process.
I work with Jon and since you are a thought leader whom I respect I’d love to get your feedback about dealing with negativity in the workplace and people's daily lives. You can check out more about the book and watch few short promo videos we’ve made by going to http://www.NoComplainingRule.com. There’s a part in the first one where the boss head butts an employee for complaining. It’s hilarious!
Thanks and please let me know if you’d like to check out the book.

Jim,
I'm at a loss as to what could you possibly find insightful about this blog — it's a copy-and-paste-job when it comes to any serious issues. No analysis to speak of — I've often wondered if Craig gets paid by some of the people/organizations he promotes on his blog.

Delia,
I find there to be a decent amount of insight here.
At the very least, there are quite a few issues raised that many of us wouldn't normally come across. That alone makes the Web site a good value.

Garrett:
*Issues* raised? Again, it's a cut-and-paste-operation — nothing original that I can see…
Looks like propaganda to me (always one-sided; devoid of analysis) and I have no doubt that some of these people/organizations would be willing to pay for this sort of thing.
I don't know that he *does* get paid, of course — it is just my suspicion.
