While office romance can occur at any time, it seems that the month of February, and especially Valentine's Day, focuses a bit more attention on the issue.

Work Smart, Not Hard - Sure, But How, Exactly?
The latest advice we hear from the business gurus is "Work smart, not hard." Yes, of course; that makes sense. But what does it mean? What exactly should we do to work "smart?"
Working smart means being effective - focusing on the results we're after, not the process we use to achieve them. Don't mistake activity for effectiveness. You can stay busy all day without accomplishing anything important. We only have a limited amount of time and energy, so we need to use those resources in a smart way. Use them for the things that make a difference.
