How to be Efficient in the Workplace
I grew up being a HUGE basketball fan. While I've never been a fan of the Lakers or the Heat, I've always admired Pat Riley as one of the best coaches of all-time. His secret? Efficiency.

This is a statement about basketball, of course, but it can apply to the workplace as well.
