Get Out Of Bed And Make That Change

Picture the lazy weekend morning: The sun is bright, the day is young, and you’re in bed. For many of us, myself included, the temptation to stay in bed and enjoy the comforts of sleep and warm blankets is easy to do. It’s simple to enjoy the moment, to be still and content. I’m pretty sure that even those with uncomfortable beds or lumpy pillows enjoy these lazy moments and would rather stay in bed than confront the inertia of the day. Similarly, for many people, it’s easy and comforting to go to the same job every day, to know what to expect, and to go with the flow. Even when they are not happy with their career or their co-workers, it’s easier to stick with what is familiar. Change is scary. For me, the fluffy pillow was the four weeks of vacation I received each year. The warm, cozy bed was the defined benefit pension that I could expect to receive at the end of the road. The relaxing state of wakefulness that we experience in the morning was the comforting knowledge that each day, I would do similar tasks with the same people and collect my salary twice a month. But […]

Multi-tasking-Saving or Wasting Time and Money For Employers

You’ve heard it before or you even said in a job interview that one of your of your greatest strengths was your ability to multi-task. For most you would assume that this is what employers want to hear by saying you can think and do more than one thing at the same time. Do all employers want an employee that can multi-task or that is driven in this manner? What is a multi-tasker? Multitasking is the best performance by an individual of appearing to handle more than one task at the same time. I believe that humans have different modes in the brain and they can turn them on/off depending on their mood. For the most part I believe that humans turn on a speed that they feel comfortable at to accomplish their goals. Not everyone is wired to be a multi-tasker and no they are not born that way they learn to be this way. Somehow the brain seems to think like a computer program and is running different programs at the same time yet completing the tasks for each set of goals. You are partially aware of what is going on around you and what you are doing. Have you […]

Strategies to Survive Unemployment, Job Loss,Injury and Disability At Work

When you get laid off, injured or become unemployed the money may stop coming in but the bills never stop. Are you prepared for this situation if it happens? Red Alert….panic sets in, frustration, stress, what will you do?  Collection agencies will come calling and doing everything in their power to get money from you if you don’t pay. They will even go as far as taking you to court if they believe you can pay and have exhausted all other avenues. Investing in yourself is, if not the most important tip you should take away from this post. You are your number one priority and you should take the time to know who you are and what you have to offer. That’s not all though, not everything you have to pay for comes in the form of a bill. You still need to pay for your food or whatever else you pay cash for throughout the month. Thank goodness for local food banks who try their hardest to keep the shelves full for local families in need and to those that donate. Please, I have to say, for goodness sakes stay away from those Payday Loan shops or you […]
