It’s Good To Bounce Back

Yesterday was not a very productive day for me. I couldn’t get any rhythm or traction going in my work. I hate Tuesdays for that reason.

A day later I’ve bounced back and I’m having a much better day of meeting my quota which is higher than what my work demands.

Keeping at it can be a good thing. Persistence is a virtue that can benefit us all in our lives on and off the job. No matter what you have got this.

When things are tough give yourself a break.

Older In The Office

I’m almost 50 and age should be just a number but in an office it can issue. Older workers have lots of experience that can benefit the whole company.

It’s interesting that some older workers see lots of people come and go over time. I know that from personal experience.

Personally I try to keep up with the culture so that I might be relevant and relatable to my younger co-workers and other relationships.

Being older in the office doesn’t mean being stuffy it can mean that little can phase you which can be beneficial to all.

Quote Of The Day

We have to remember what’s important in life: friends waffles and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.

People Helping People

Making ones living upon the good graces and cooperation of others is tough. You having to balance the demands of business with the availably of people in the process. One has to be delicate and understanding. Empathy and sympathy are both needed to connect with people.

Using good communication skills and experience are very helpful. Of course it requires sticking to it in order to be successful. Ultimately it’s asking people to help people and to add urgency into the mix.

Having goals and meeting quotas in this situation are another conversation. Keep those metrics in mind though.
