Fischli & Weiss ‘How to Work Better’ – a great manifesto!

I just had to make a copy of this when I saw it in Tate etc magazine over Christmas 2006. This is a very simple but ultimately effective means by which anyone can ‘work better’:

  1. Do one thing at a time
  2. Know the problem
  3. Learn to listen
  4. Learn to ask questions
  5. Distinguish sense from nonsense
  6. Accept change as inevitable
  7. Accept mistakes
  8. Say it simple
  9. Be calm
  10. Smile

Oh, if only…

Locale sites now launched

As the largest provider of online services to the property sector in the UK, Locale has now launched its occupier website (OWS) service for prestigious business parks for a number of its clients. Sites include Bedfont Lakes near Heathrow, Cheadle Royal outside Manchester and other pre-eminent locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

All sites feature information on the local area including local transport, local gig guides, local weather and local news, as well as full property information. The dynamic, localised and engaging nature of the sites encourages users to register (the added incentive of the chance to win a new iPod nano helps of course!) and to return to the sites in order to keep up-to-date with all aspects of the location in which they work.

There’s the added benefit of exclusive offers and promotions which always helps too!
