Fight the Funk!

Cube News 1 viewer Mark emailed me to talk about a subject that seems rampant right now: mind-numbing depression. So here are my thoughts on fighting off the funk, the doldrums and the blahs….and, I realize it has been a while since our last video episode. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back! I hope we don’t wait too long before posting another one…

So if you are in LA, come on by!

Cubicle View Contest
Just because you don’t have the corner office yet doesn’t mean you can’t have a view! The guys at www.CubicleDecor.com make windows for cubicles and sent me one to review. I held a ‘most deserving cubicle contest’ and am happy to announce the lucky winner!

Thanks to everyone who submitted pictures of their cubicles. It was a tough competition with many fabulous examples of miserable cubes. But there can be only one….so the winner is….David from Maryland, USA! What gave David’s the winning touch? The decades old desk? The giant steel beam? No…it was the sewer pipe that runs alongside his cubicle. Congratulations David! Enjoy the view.
