Finding Balance

rocks-balancing-on-driftwood-sea-in-background-153081592-591bbc3f5f9b58f4c0b7bb16

Finding the balance between work and for play isn’t easy at times. We exist in a world where anyone, at almost any time, can get a hold of us. Not to mention the reality that information is coming at us from everywhere. Newspapers, TV, radio, websites, …the list can go on and on.

Finding the time to work on your relationships with others, at home or at work, is an essential part of whether life seems controllable, pleasurable and balanced. However a lot of us feel so fragmented and overwhelmed because we aren’t achieving that sense of balance.

Like most people, we never appear to have sufficient hours in the day to get everything completed. Taking the time to make creative changes in your life can really mean the difference between simply making a living and having a LIFE.

Take control of your physical environment. You can find roughly 333 more hours (Eight 40-hour weeks) in any given year by getting and staying organized. The less time you spend running around searching for things, the more time you will have for what is significant to you.

Prioritize what is in fact needed and important to you. Be “ruthless” about what you keep. You have a finite amount of space-use the “real estate” for those things you need and treasure.

Eliminate what you don’t need. Not everything has to go the way of the dumpster. Donate to a charity or sell the items and allow yourself the freedom from feeling guilty or wasteful. If you aren’t using it, chances are someone else can.

Contain things properly. Consider about where you would look for items reasonably and what type of like bits and pieces can be contained right along with them.

Schedule time to maintain your new found organized self and surroundings.

Bad Habits in the Workplace

space-desk-workspace-coworking.jpgEveryone suffers when someone on the job has bad habits in the workplace. Bad habits can make for an environment that is unfriendly, unproductive, or even unsafe. You can only correct your bad habits in the workplace if you recognize them.

One of the most noticeable bad habits in the workplace is tardiness. Some people just have a habit of being late to everything. They are late to arrive, late back from break, and late back from lunch. This not only puts them in jeopardy of losing their jobs. It can affect the productivity of the whole crew or office.

Absenteeism is another bad habit that people can fall into easily. A new trend is to make all accumulated days off the same. Sick days, personal days, and vacation days are lumped together. You just have a set number of days off and it is up to you how you take them.

The trouble with this system is that too many people have bad habits about using the days off. They get used to taking off whenever they feel like it. Before they know it, all their days off are gone. Then, when they really have an emergency or illness, they have to miss work without pay. In the meantime, their workload is being handled by someone else.

People often have bad habits in the workplace when it comes to paperwork. They do not do proper accounting on their expense reports. They do not keep the receipts that are needed by their company. They fail to keep mileage records on their company cars accurately. This makes the company’s accounting department have to work harder.

Many workers have an aversion to doing paperwork at all. They have bad habits of not filling out jobsite reports as needed. If they do special business reports as requested, they may have bad habits about not turning them in on time.

Clean work spaces can help people get more work done. However, many people have bad habits when it comes to keeping their desks and offices neat. They may have a certain kind of organization if they have stacks of papers on their desks. Yet, if their desk is full of half empty pop cans and crumpled up fast food bags, it cannot help anything.

People often get into the bad habit of losing things. They may lose important paperwork. The paperwork may be critical contracts for a major deal the company is involved with. If your bad habits take over, you can cost the company everything.

People in other kinds of jobs can get into the habit of losing tools. They do not pay enough attention when they lay down their tools. When they get ready to clean up for the day, they have no recollection of where they put a particular tool, if they remember using it at all. This is a bad habit that amounts to laziness in thinking.

If you want to make an impression at work, get a grip on your bad habits. The way you work will be a result of the habits you bring to the table. It is the good habits that make you succeed.

How ‘LUCK’ is actually spelled

If you’ve read ‘I have paid the price‘ then definitely you know how ‘LUCK’ is spelled.

For those who have not read it or doesn’t even know then so here the spellings of ‘LUCK’ is going to be revealed.

To understand the spellings, we are going to take help of the ‘world’s fastest man’ – Usain Bolt (also known as ‘Lightning Bolt’)

Usain Bolt is a world record holder for being the fastest man on earth, completing the 2009 world championships 100 m sprint in 9.58s. None the less, he is not only the record holder of the  100m sprint but also of 200m race. He has a world record of completing this event in 19.19s.

And to your surprise, he broke both the world records at the same Olympics  and he became the first man to hold both the 100 and 200 m world and Olympic titles at the same time.

But that’s his LUCK, people say.

If you ask him what was the reason he will frankly tell you that it was his “LUCK” that brought him where he is today.

And you’ll not ask anything further after asking this question because you too will consider that where you are today is only because of your LUCK and indeed you are right.

But, let me help you by asking another question to this legend. “How did you become LUCKY?” and he will reply “By WORK” and after a pause he’ll continue, “I workout for 16 hours a day. I compete with myself and my timings everyday. I wake up early and run a few miles daily. I have nutritional diet and take care of my health so that I can perform at optimal point. Every night I visualize myself breaking the world record, running faster than the previous day. I WORK to be LUCKY and I WORK HARDER to be MORE LUCKY.”

Through his answer you’ll understand that the actual spellings of ‘LUCK’ is:

K

“The harder you work the more lucky you’ll be.”
