Fact or Fiction


The most productive day in the workweek is Tuesday.


According to research conducted by Accountemps, employees are able to best focus on day-to-day responsibilities on Tuesdays.  In contrast, Mondays tend to be heavy on meetings, giving the day a hectic feeling.

What's your most productive day of the week and why?  We look forward to hearing from you, and may share your feedback in an upcoming issue of Astronology!


Readers Write

In our last issue of Astronology, we learned that American car horns beep in the tone of F.   Long-time reader Bob Meehan of Arizona wrote us, noting that "F is also the stock ticker symbol for Ford."  Do we sense a theme here?

Thanks for writing, Bob, and thanks for reading Astronology!


Remember to Vote!

Today is Election Day!  Please don't forget to vote in the elections that are happening in your city, county, and / or state.  Many of the races are close and critical, and every vote counts!


Giving Constructive Criticism

interviewIt's a fact of life we can't avoid. Whether it's working in a professional environment, learning in the educational realm, or interacting with friends or family, at some point in time we all have to face criticism. How we may perceive that criticism depends on whether we are on the giving or receiving end. When done right, constructive criticism is not meant to hurt or humiliate a person. Rather, constructive criticism is meant to build a person and push them to reach the next level of success. Learning how to give constructive criticism makes a difference in regards to how others view an individual and also how he or she demonstrates leadership. This issue of Astronology takes a deeper look into how to give constructive criticism in the workplace....more
