Effectiveness Week

Filed under: Random Linkfests — Random Yak @ 8:04 am on May 22, 2007

May 20-26 is National Effectiveness Week.

So if you weren’t being effective before, shape up and get with the program.

As for me, I’ve been down with the flu since Effectiveness Week started on Sunday. Which hasn’t been very effective as far as my workload is concerned, but has been tremendously effective at rendering me completely ineffective. So now I’m not effectively sure whether I’ve been effective or not, and I need to spend a little time pondering my own effectiveness. Which, of course, will effectively keep me out of commission for at least the next two to three hours.

Effective, no?

This is also your weekly open trackback post. Link and track back and I’ll hardlink you in as effectively as possible.
