“What do these people want me to do? To be?” That is a question that some in leadership positions ask themselves. The issue with this is, if someone is acting or behaving in a way that isn’t authentic to themselves, people recognize it. Ultimately, creating a lack of trust. In this context, it’s good to think first about yourself. Think about who you are, what’s important to you, and consider your beliefs, values, and experiences. These are the things that account for who you are and is
If your apartment is animal friendly, but you don’t want a dog, try a cat! Cats are considered low maintenance. Meaning, if you provide for them their basic needs, they’ll pretty much take care of themselves. Compared to a dog or a human child, cats are a lot cheaper to care for, too! Before looking for a cat/kitten, first check to see if your apartment is animal friendly. Next, remember that a cat has nine lives - this is a long-term responsibility. After that, we recommend asking yourself
For some, whether an apartment community is animal-friendly, is a deciding factor. Maybe they already have a dog and need to move some place that’ll accept them. Therefore, they can’t move into an apartment that doesn’t. I mean they could, but they’d have to find some place else for the dog. For others, finding out that that an apartment is pet-friendly is the “excuse” they need to purchase a pet, in this instance, a dog. Dogs are wonderful editions to a home. They bring many families joy.
Everybody talks. And, they always will. It’s up to you to choose who to listen to and who not to. For instance, in your head are the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of not only you, but your family, friends, coworkers, strangers, news reporters, celebrities, etc. They tell you what to think, who you are, what you can do, what to do, how to live your life, how to further your career, and/or how to be a better you. These voices are what shape our clarity and confidence – either by helping
It’s commonly known that when employees are happy, engaged, and productive, it’s because they’re satisfied with their jobs. It’s difficult for a business to be successful without the satisfaction and motivation of its employees. In that case, one would think that caring about employee satisfaction is a no-brainer for organizations. Apparently, that’s not the case or employees wouldn’t be left feeling unappreciated, expendable, underpaid, etc. Organizations, managers, or leaders who ask t
Is a manager who gives praise or a manager who points out areas of improvement, better? Some managers are afraid to give out negative feedback. They shift their focus away from where their employees need to improve. It sometimes has to deal with managers wanting to be friends with their employees. Others, it seems like all they do is point out people’s flaws, making it near impossible to get through. Rather than one being better than the other, a good leader learns to balance the two. Wh
Typically, we’re renovating our kitchens, dining rooms, and living rooms; Ultimately, leaving the bedroom(s) out of the equation. Bedrooms aren’t typically on display and their designs are often overlooked. You pick a wall that’s best for the bed, add a couple nightstands, a dresser, and your done. While that might work for most, one size doesn’t fit all. Bedroom layouts often need to cater to the room they’re in. For instance, nightstands might be too small, there may be empty spaces that
A Harvard study found that we spend almost 50 percent of our time thinking about the past and the future, instead of on the present. It’s this kind of thinking that can lead to an increase in unhappiness. Rather than focusing on the goal and instead on the journey, our mindsets change. When looking ahead, we see our goals as something that will be attained at some point in time. When we look at where we are, right now, there are bite-sized steps that can be acted on, today.
