Do You Look Forward to Fridays?: Living a Well-Rounded Life

This week has been the longest, true story!

I thought to update the inspiration category of the blog as it’s been a while since I last did that. I recall publishing something quite similar here.

You know what’s funny? I’ve had this post drafted for some time and I was going to publish it last week Friday, but I hesitated. One of the reasons is because I don’t necessarily publish posts on Fridays if you’ve noticed.

I’m working towards sticking to a schedule, but of course, I understand that things may change every once in a while and it may be affected. Also, I don’t want to put out too much content so much that you barely have enough time to absorb it.

How to Handle an Overly Competitive Coworker

Don’t you just love a friendly competition? You and your coworkers or friends uplifting each other and breaking boundaries!

When Jamila left a comment at a previous post (read here) stating that she would like to see a post discussing how to deal with competition at work, I knew it was about time I drafted one (because I’ve had it on my mind for some time).

That not withstanding, I wanted to start out from a positive perspective before moving forward.

If that sounds cliché, I totally get it. Most people claim to be positive when in fact they are doing the extreme opposite. But it’s a better way to look at everything that has to do with life irrespective.

No Motivation to Go to Work? Find it Here (Easy Peasy!)

Everyone loves to talk about how they lack motivation on their jobs. Okay, not everyone, but almost everyone.

Sometimes, I think some workers have become so used to complaining  so much that they don’t realize that it’s become the norm. Like, one can even hear their thoughts.

In a previous article, I discussed how to discover if you lack motivation, because I was of the opinion that that was the first step to take. But, I also feel that inspiration has a way of influencing motivation.

That explains why I started out the inspiration category on the blog. I was of the opinion that we all need something or someone to inspire us to seek out the best in life, which of course, would include our jobs!

Want to feel More Appreciated & Valued at Work? Here is How!

You go to work happy. Do everything within your power to meet the end of your bargain – do your job!

And your boss or employer never deems it fit to acknowledge your hard work and input.

This is not to say that you are carrying out your job because you hope to be rewarded or praised. I think as humans we just want to feel appreciated.

We want someone to notice that we put in some time to make some achievements.

I get it.

You get it!

4 Bloggers that Inspire me – Career, Work-life & Intersection!

Several people inspire me in multiple ways that you can’t imagine. I’ve made it my mission to look for inspiration in the deepest of places and weirdest of imaginations.

I’ve had times when I was down and sought for inspiration but couldn’t find it. So I chose to search for it because I was of the opinion that it was a necessity.

I don’t want to be sad. I never want to have such a day in my life, but no doubt these things sure happen.

But if I can avoid it, then I should at least try.

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.

This is How to Set Goals for the New Year

Where do you see yourself in ten, five years? Better still what do you expect to have achieved by next year, 2017 since we’d be entering a new year pretty much soon?

Around this time of the year, many people begin to plan or make statements concerning new year resolutions. I think it should be an all year round affair. Whether they achieve this or not is another blog post for a different day.
