I don't usually repost stuff. Actually, I never repost stuff. But there's this one short article I stumbled upon at Business Insider that hit a complete home run with me and I knew I had to share it with you guys. The article's so true. It's so accurate. It's so relevant to anyone who's doing anything that can be considered "business."

So the other day I got an email. After giving it a thorough 3-second examination, it went straight to my spam folder. Then after a couple of hours, I went back to see it again as it actually was one of the most out of place spam emails I received in a while.
