“Mr. Staires, Thank you for your “edutainment” yesterday. Your “4 words of doom” really hit home for me. I am a mental health counselor and in my work with individuals, families, and relationships I often hear the “4 words of doom.” Most often, in my field and most likely yours as well, the majority of issues occur from forgetting to use basic skills that we all know, yet take for granted. Apparently, I need to take my own advice and get back to the basics of time management rather than rely on a an overwhelmed memory, supersized stacks of papers on my desk, and a billion different apps that don’t communicate with each other. I created a steering wheel this morning in 15 minutes and have done so well that I even found time AND REMEMBERED to write a “thank you” email to you. Thanks Again!” Alex Price, MS LPC
