Why did Susan Quit?

If you have been engaged in the workforce for a good number of years, I am sure you have had to quit or got fired at least once. I meet Susan every morning when I go out for my exercise routine. Susan is a young lady probably in her mid sixties, with a great upbeat positive attitude. She helps elementary school children safely cross the road a few dozen steps away from where I live. This morning after we exchanged our usual greetings, she told me: “You won’t see me anymore from next week, I quit.” My reaction was, as Continue reading Why did Susan Quit?

Top Two Things Not To Do Before Sleep

Sleep is probably the most important part of our days during which we are not awake. Did you get that? Yes, sleep is pretty important. Growing up, I was taught that we need to sleep 6 to 8 hours every day, depending on the phase of physiological development we are at.

When Was The Last Time?

When was the last time you stopped to notice the beauty of nature and “smell the roses.” Ok, some roses don’t smell that good but they all look very good. In our current state of existence, most of us don’t even notice nature anymore. Even in non-urban areas, people have so many items they allow to be stressed by that they don’t give themselves timeouts to smell the roses.  I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
