4 Practical Ways to Stay Calm under Work Pressure

Pressure at work is mostly inevitable. Most workplaces are fast paced and this is majorly not your fault but as a result of business needs and urgencies.

You keep asking yourself if you are making a mistake at some point. Sometimes you are not aware of a mistake you made.

And sometimes you find that you are so uneasy. It’s real. It does happen. You are human after all. You are left to wonder how you got to make a huge error in the first place.

Personality Clash with your Dream Job? Here is the Solution!

If personality clash can be linked to relationships, why then can’t we link it to our jobs and how we feel about implementing it?

We have every reason to believe that we are in a relationship with our jobs/ career. We spend a large amount of time each day at our various workplaces which average at least 7 hours per day.

Personality clash at work is real. If you are an indoor person and your job requires you to be outdoor, that’ll be a big deal for you and possibly a deal breaker. This goes vice versa.

4 Ways to Deal with a Coworker who is out to Get you

Have you ever come to that point in time when you feel like a coworker is out to revenge? For whatever reason.

I don’t know about you, but there have certainly been times like that for me. As though we are out for a competition of whatever sort. If you know me too well, you’d know that I hate unhealthy competition. The sky is out there and can contain every one of us. So why bother?!

Besides, unhealthy competition is so much work! Jeez, you’d have to spend hours plotting. Time thinking of how to strike. I’d rather go to bed and have some beauty sleep.

5 Ways to Enjoy the Weekend as a Worker

It’s another Friday!

Excited? Isn’t it funny how most people hate Mondays and are totally in love with Fridays?

I’m indifferent. Actually, Monday is one of my favorite days of the week, not like I care. But on Mondays, I’m usually recharged and ready to take control of the week.

I also look forward to Fridays. Don’t get me wrong, I love to have some free time and Friday reminds me of Saturday and Sunday.

I pretty much handle my personal matters on weekends which is why I like Fridays. So yes, let’s TGIF!

5 Ways to Start up a Conversation at Work (Easy Tips!)

This post will be very useful for a newbie (or not) at work. Since relocating to Canada, I’ve been a newbie at several workplaces and initially, I would struggle with starting up a conversation and cringe at the mere thought of it.

Thinking about it presently, makes me smile.

When I had to intern (one of my best work experience so far), when I had to change jobs a countless number of times during my post grad to find a part-time job that could fit with my schedule.

5 Quick Tips to Cope (and be Productive) in a Noisy Office

Just last week, I published an article on a disadvantage of open-spaced offices. In that article, I looked at it from the perspective of the office being too quiet.

Yes, you read that right; too-quiet, because that’s a thing! You can read the article here.

I’d be a bad writer, and be one-sided if I didn’t acknowledge that it could go both ways. An open-spaced office can also result to a noisy workplace and I read some comments from readers that thought so too.

So, this post will be all about the opposite. It’ll be about how to maintain your sanity in a noisy lousy office because it could be distracting too.

4 Quick Tips to Solve a Too-Quiet Office

I’ve had to work in an office environment where I had my own space, pretty large beautiful office space, and of course, a sliding door I could shut to have some privacy. The beautiful part was that I could see my name boldly written at the entrance of my office.

Every day, on my way to my space and out, I’d feel some sense of pride to see my name neatly hung on the door. It had many cabinets I barely used, but was happy to own.

And I’ve equally had an open workspace. My table shoved at a corner. No doubt, wide table, large enough to contain three monitors, white space, and all what not. That entrepreneurial feel to an open well lit space.

April Recap: Inspiration, Lessons Learned, Hopes

It’s another new month! Excited much?

April wasn’t a bad month. If not for anything, the weather was fairly good. That’s something to be pleased about.

Everyone has been excited about Cherry blossoms and even though I wasn’t able to go to the park to take a selfie, due to so much traffic because the people in Toronto are extremely excited about Spring, at least I’ve been able to see a few around and pictures.
