Relax

This week I am working from home and that is because we are  re-locating our offices.  Today marks the third day I’m doing this and I am just now getting the hang of it. All my life I have a been a full-time employee, thriving within an corporate environment. My day used to feel structured…

Be Nice !

Ever since we were  kids we were told to be nice. In  grade school we were often told that if a kid was bullying us we should ignore them. Then, we were told in high school that if a teacher graded us unfairly then we  should just respect the teacher and be nice. As adults…

Lessons in Contests

What I love about the art of public speaking is that you can never fully master it. Even if you speak before an audience for every day of your adult life, you are bound to discover new things about  both the speaking experience and yourself. Yesterday, I learned a big lesson about myself at the…

Crimes Against the Creative

When you put a creative person in an office environment, you give that person great skills. In fact, the skills a writer, designer, photographer, video maker, or any other creative individual gets from working in an agency, publishing house, design house, or any other corporation for that matter are  priceless. However, there are some corporate practices…

Arrivals

While browsing through my Facebook feed I found an interesting status. There it was, embedded between the stories about people’s breakfasts, the photos of cats, the pointless statements about a person’s head cold, a woman’s love for the color purple,  and a wife’s paragraph about the love she has for her husband who incidentally lives…

Do We Judge?

I was recently told  that I am good at not judging people for their personal choices, and I was naturally flattered by  this association. You see, we are often told that judging others is bad, but the funny thing is that even the people preaching against judgment are doing some judging themselves.  They just repeat…

The Realistic Definition of Being Positive

Throughout my life I used to be infuriated  by people who throw at me reasons  to be excessively positive. I don’t mean to sound like the voice of doom and I do think positivity is good.  I only had a serious issue with people who tell me that life is great, everything is beautiful ,…

Happy Birthday Faces

Today, as I was checking my mobile for notifications from WordPress,  one notification read “Happy Anniversary”  . Today, Faces turns a year older. But, this day is specifically significant this year, because it is the first year I have been taking my blog posting activities seriously. Since May 2016, I came to the decision that…

A New Celebrity

Although I am someone who has embraced social media to the fullest, and I can honestly say that I do  believe that  it is a great way to connect to the world, I still feel that it is also home to the new type of celebrity. We all know the  type of celebrity in question….

Thinking About Jobs, Careers, and Callings

Recently I read that a job is “something typically done from 9 to 5 for pay”, while a career is “a system of advancements and promotions over time where rewards are used to optimize behavior”, and a calling is “something that we feel compelled to do regardless of fame or fortune”.
