Dreams and Aspirations

Posted by Akera on Nov 21, 2012 6:36:55 AM

Right now I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. Do I go after my dreams or do I further my studies based on my promising future in office administration. It may be strange to hear but I do like working as an office professional. Then again I am starting to really become interested in event planning, should I go after that too. I love to cook and think the world or at least Barbados should know about it. Its been a while now since I did any real cooking I was a little depressed for over a year about the direction of my life and stopped baking and cooking. A little rusty now I guess.

Settling

Posted by Akera on Nov 16, 2012 6:22:51 AM

Have you ever felt like no matter what you try to do your life was a routine? Work, home, sleep, work, home, sleep and the cycle just continues to be the same. Sometimes I just think it’s my laziness that stops me from getting up and going out there and making life more than routine but enjoyable. Most times I stay at home going crazy with boredom just because I cannot be bothered to move.

What about work? Does your work seem routine? Well depending on the field of work, some jobs require the same action daily. For instance, a packer in a factory, the only thing they do all day is packing. But we may ask what can we do about it since it is the job we are paid to do.

Setting Goals and Achieving Them

Posted by Akera on Nov 7, 2012 6:32:39 AM

In 2006 I was the proud recipient of a driver’s permit. However, at 2012 I am not the proud recipient of a license. How pathetic, some may say, but I guess in my mind it was something I could always get and I kept on putting it off.

From teenage years I have always set goals and never seen most of them through, especially the most important ones. Yes, I am still young but it has always been my hope that by setting goals from an early age I would be able to accomplish many things in life be they personal, physical, spiritual or career goals.

Communicating

Posted by Akera on Oct 12, 2012 7:11:34 AM

Even within a small communications company, communications can be ineffective. My boss always says “come on, we are selling communications we must be able to do it ourselves effectively every time.” Of course this is not always the case because effective communications is not simplistic. As human beings we communicate with every inch of our being and sometimes our intentions and what we communicate do no not match, there is a disconnect. Emails can be worst, as what we write may not be interpreted in the way we intend.

We are taught that communication must include both the transference of a message and the understanding of that message but sometimes that message is not always understood as a result of barriers.

Blues & Moods

Posted by Akera on Oct 3, 2012 12:25:46 PM

One of the most demotivating and demoralising experiences in any working environment is dealing with a moody employee, be it your boss or a co-worker. Sometimes it seems as if they are directing anger from their personal lives toward you.

For the love of it!

Posted by Akera on Aug 24, 2012 1:02:42 PM

Working at PRMR Inc., I have come to love the work that I do for the first time. Not only do I want to come to work in the morning but also I actually wake early enough to make breakfast and eat it before leaving home. This has never happened before.

Change and the Organization

Posted by Akera on Aug 17, 2012 6:51:54 AM

Organizations should strive to have a culture that embraces change. This is important so that when change comes, as it always does, employees would not sabotage the organization because they already operate in a culture that is dynamic. In situations like mergers and acquisitions for example, managers can be sure that employees would be less resistant and would make a smooth transition into new cultures and territories if the culture already promotes development.

Are You Listening??

Posted by Akera on Aug 8, 2012 6:29:28 AM

There was a show on television which highlighted the fact that humans respond to what they think they are going to hear without even listening to the question. They gave a series of questions. All of the participants in the surveyed failed at answering the questions, including me, the at home participant.
