Mental illness isn’t something we talk about often in the workplace. It’s also something that you might overlook, until it touches someone you know — possibly even you.
No one is immune to experiencing anxiety, depression or any of the other narratives we hear about mental health. In fact, half of all mental illness begins by age 14, and yet most cases go undiagnosed and untreated. Fortunately, there is growing recognition of the importance of building mental resilience to deal with the world we live in today — including our work environment.
October 8, 2008 seems like a lifetime ago. Obviously, a lot has changed since then. Our world is definitely different, but so is Nebo.
We’ve grown to nearly 100 people. We bought a smaller agency. We moved to a 14K square-foot space across the street from our old location. Kimm Lincoln became President. And the list could go on and on.
However, to me, that date stands out above all of the others.
You see, that’s the day Cami found Nebo.
Time management is something that everyone thinks they’re good at, but few actually are. There are a number of different reasons for this, and a big one is that time management isn’t actually what we think it is — it has nothing to do with managing time. I know, I know, that doesn't make any sense, but think about it - you can’t actually manage time, can you? It’s going to pass whether you like it or not. What we call “time management” is really behavior management and it’s all about managing your productivity within the time you’re given. For the sake of this blog post, however, we’ll continue to call it time management.
Nebo’s office space has an industrial look. Modern. Simple. It’s a restored warehouse that dates all the way back to the 1800s, which means it’s rich in history — and in design elements. There’s wood, brick, exposed metal and a few accent walls in white and blue. But with that coveted industrial-loft looks comes a lot of grey. The paint on the walls is grey. The concrete floors are grey. The concrete on the ceiling is also grey.
