Stop Spending Unnecessarily

Fiscal cliff or Sequestratiohnj - or just "tightening the belt" as my parents would have called it - we all know how to do it - it's about cutting waste, unnecessary luxuries, and being more efficient and effective with what we do.\

In the workplace, it's process improvement - something I do with clients all the time, saving them lots of time and money.

So, what's the crisis all about?  Can't our government figure out ways to save money by getting rid of unnecessary and cumbersome processes - some of which are built in redundancy that was put in place to prevent problems but cost more than it potentiall saves.....

Let's not deliberately hurt people in what we cut - which the Wall St. Journal mentioned was only 2.2% anyway - let's work smarter.

Hi, this is more or less a test case, since Google in its infinite wisdom changed my blog - and I haven't been able to access it for a very long time.   If this posts properly, I will start posting again.
