Hey *|FNAME|*. Perhaps you were at Haas Vegas and perhaps you weren't. Perhaps you are a sleep-deprived zombie with newly developing liver toxicity and perhaps you aren't. Either way, we're gonna take a slightly different turn from our normal SB intro and highlight one of the "top five regrets of the dying" (according to Australian hospice nurse Bronnie Ware) so that we can all keep our priorities straight. (1) "I wish I hadn't worked so hard – [Working people] deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of work existence". So if you're not working too hard – you're probably doing it right.  You can read the rest here.

Business Term of the Week: "Beyonce" (verb)

1. To get yourself psyched up and ready for some kind of performative act – such as a presentation, job interview, etc. – when you are not feeling high energy. The roots of this word stem from the fact that regardless of how Beyonce is feeling, whether she had a bad day or is feeling poorly, still gets up on stage in front of tens of thousands of people and gives them the show of their lifetimes.

I'm feeling worn-out and a little sick, but I've got a job interview with Salesforce tomorrow, so I've got get my act together and Beyonce that sh*t.
