Winter Watering runs through
March 31st 

Dial back on landscape watering and save on your water bill. Lawns and outdoor plants require much less watering as we roll into colder temperatures.  Limit sprinkler use to once-a-week and switch to the winter watering schedule. If the last digit of your address is odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), your water day is Tuesday. If the digit is even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), your water day is Thursday.

Smart Business Tips
What Does Mark Cuban Say Is One of the Most Underrated Skills in Business?
Being Nice
Demanding, hard-charging, results-at-all-costs leaders get results. For a while. 

Eventually, though, the pressure gets old. The message grows stale. Leaders who manage through heavy-handed authority quickly "lose" their teams. I'll do what you tell me to do... but that's about it.  And as soon as I can, I'll do it for -- or with -- someone else.

That's a lesson Mark Cuban has learned over the years.
