Not Everybody Likes Their Routine

When most people think of a routine, they imagine the typical girl from a positive lifestyle article in a woman’s magazine. She’s slim and healthy, laughing at a joke that nobody will ever know while eating a green salad. Or maybe she’s showing off her widest grin on her way to the gym – back from the gym; it’s hard to tell, girls in magazines don’t seem to sweat when they exercise. In other words, you already know that routine for this girl, and her readers mean freedom, health, fun, and the perfect figure. 

But for some people, a routine is the last thing they want to keep in their days. Routine is hell, and they hate it. If you sometimes roll your eyes when you stumble across the laughing girl and her salad in a magazine, you probably have already questioned the advantages of your routine. If you fear the work routine, this article is for you.

How To Find A Mentor: 5 Practical Tips

10 Things You Must Avoid in Front of Your Manager

Multiple global studies have revealed that 79% of people who quit their jobs mark “lack of appreciation” as the main reason for the switch or because of a bad manager. When your work isn’t cherished, you don’t feel the motivation to perform to the best of your abilities. But it is actually quite difficult to keep your managers happy and satisfied with your performance.

It is hard for the employees to realize the toughness of a manager’s duty. This is because they are unaware of the challenges which these managers encounter on a day-to-day basis. By realizing what it’s like to be a manager, you can actually be more valuable to him than a burden.

If you are inclined to make the life of your manager easier and wish to score a good reputation in his eyes, here are some of the things which you must not do in front of him.

Your Support Will Make Your Partner’s Career Soar

Apart from your support to book a trip to Paris for two. A private tour of the Eiffel Tower and tickets to see a crazy-amazing burlesque performance in Moulin Rouge, one of the most romantic gestures any spouse, partner or significant lover can make is a show of support for the other person’s career.

That’s all it takes. And Calvin Harris is proof of this, something he showed to his (then) girlfriend, Tay-Tay Swift,  when he sent a tweet to his six million followers to congratulate her on the industry-altering victory she had over Apple.

That Love-Hate Relationship of the 9-5

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I don’t understand the whole concept of the 9-5 life too. I’m like, who the hell thought this was worth it? How did they come to accept this?

Whoever the ‘they’ is or are.

How was this even the drill and how does it continue to be?

Don’t ever think I’ve got it all figured out. For Christ’s sake, I’m a millennial and I figure the whole ‘misconception’ applies to me too. Millennials can’t sit still. Millennials are impatient. Millennials this. Millennials that.
