While shoveling your favorite sugary cereal in your mouth on a lazy Saturday morning, you could analyze two pictures that looked identical at first glance.

He’s bringing your kids a swing set complete with a twisting yellow slide, three swings, and a ladder that leads to the tallest tower, the highest mountain, the secret lair, or whatever else exists within your child’s imagination.

If you were in the car with a friend driving through a new city when the engine started smoking and a flat tire interrupted your pleasant conversation, “everything’s going to be fine,” does not soothe the siren ringing in your mind.

How to Motivate Temporary Workers
