Procrastination

when will we fix it I was going to write about this the other day but didn’t get around to it, and I have many more quips about procrastination, but I’ll get around to them later. In all seriousness this is one of the biggest issues people struggle with, a quick google search returns 61 million results, and most of them are offering advice on how to deal with it, beat it or overcome it, Read more…

Positive Mental Attitude

PMA, a buzz phrase of the last 100 years I think language is important as it defines the world we live in, the minute you try to change the meaning of the words you change the situation, saying “I am all for freedom of speech, but we shouldn’t offend anyone” is simply changing the definition of “freedom of speech” to meaning you don’t have any freedom at all because somebody somewhere is very likely to Read more…

After all if I motivate someone who is not very good at what they do and get them to work harder, longer or with more passion I will just get more of a bad job done Read more…

Common Sense is Surprisingly Uncommon

Usually What I find interesting about that statement is that most of us know this is true and are still surprised when people don’t use their “common Sense” What we call “common sense” is little more than the core of knowledge and wisdom that we have learnt over the years and straggly we think others who have a completely different life should have as well. Different experiences will give you different common sense. My Dad Read more…

Stop Looking for Solutions!

At least at first That may seem a negative headline and yet, it isn’t, no really it isn’t. See the thing is most people are constantly looking for a solution to their problems whether it’s money, time, relationships, hiring, firing, firefighting, or any of the other thousand and one problems that 99% of people face everyday.
