Study Finds Companies Struggle with ERP Selection
A great enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is like a great cup of coffee – not too expensive, well-balanced in flavor, tasty with no additions but also great with cream and sugar, and always fresh and hot.
Alright, so accounting software might not quite compare to coffee. However, for potential buyers there are almost as many options for ERP systems as there are choices of coffee in a big city. For a growing company, choosing and implementing a new ERP system is a crucial step towards healthy expansion. Although this is a common project for almost any business, the needs of each organization are unique. Is a company looking to integrate its CRM database with its sales data? Maybe a better tracking system is needed to follow inventory as it moves from procurement to distribution. Not only does a good ERP system need to fulfill many functions, it should work well with the particular users and resources of the company.

Is Your Company at Rest?  Use Newton's Law to Be More Productive
What most people don't know is that Newton's three laws of motion can be used as an interesting analogy for increasing your productivity, simplifying your work, and improving your life. James Clear, writer for Business 2 Community recently wrote an interesting article going back to Newton's Basic Laws and how they relate to being more productive in your personal life as well as work. 
In Newton's First Law of Motion it states an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force.  Thus, objects in motion tend to stay in motion.  So if you are looking to be more productive at either work or personally, the best the to do is get started. Once you've started, it's much easier to stay in motion.
