Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Timing

     I thought I was ready for a promotion to a Team Lead years ago. My good friend Sharon pointed out that I was not presenting myself as promotable due to the attitudes I made visible when presented with change.

 Lesson One:

     I took some time to retrain myself to respond accurately. To embrace change as quickly as possible. It wasn't easy to agree with a decision you did not agree with. But I had to find something I could latch on to. Or I had to disconnect myself from it and remind myself that it was NOT my business to run. It is this companies business. Some day I may be asked for my opinion on the changes presented. That day is not today. Someday I'll be running a business and expect my employees to run with it instead of fight it!

     Just like when I remind a customer that I am not the one who overdrew their account nor am I the one who charged them a fee for doing so, I'm merely the interpreter. I must remind myself that I am not the one asked to make decisions at this time. I am the one asked to follow them through, and I am the one being PAID to do so.

     Company A asks me to come work for them. They pay me X amount of dollars. Therefore ANYTHING, legal and ethical, that they ask me to do is what I'm being paid for. THEREFORE, I do NOT have the right to balk at ANY decision they make. Once I separated MY personal feelings, which is the root of all selfishness, and remembered that I was being paid do a job, not being paid to like it or agree with it, then I became much more sane!

     Lesson Two:

     I learned that I am being watched by others... leader by title or not. Therefore EVERYTHING I do will reflect upon my work and my coworkers. Once I decided that I was a leader and started acting like it... I respected myself better.... and so did management!

     I got promoted to become a Coach and train others... I'm looking forward to doing more to sow seed to better my company now... in return I EXPECT to receive the same from my employees when I start my own businesses. It's amazing how a little maturity makes the difference.

     In the end it wasn't my performance that got my moved up... it was my attitude. My performance bought me the right to be heard. Which only helped after I had something worthwhile to say...

     Good night.... parting thoughts.... How are YOU being PERCEIVED by your peers and superiors at your place of employment or in your arena of influence?

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

emClient Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review

Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review. I don't want to spend a ton of time on this, but I think it's worth giving my hand to this OVER BLOGGED topic because MOST of the other blogs were helpful to a point, but they were the SAME blog post, almost verbatim, on different websites. Here is my journey. The other day I get fed up trying to boot Outlook and it took awhile to boot up, because my personal computer only has very little RAM and I haven't bothered installing more, and I'm just over it.

I also wanted an email/calendar app for the android phone, which I may have to write about too because I figured that out for now. In case you interested the short of that is that I am using the basic Gmail app for email and Outlook app for that email, and using aCalendar which actually just overlays on top of Google Calendar. So you are really using Google Calendar but aCalendar is a MUCH prettier interface! I was trying to use Outlook calendar but on the Android but they seem det…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Interview Skills- An Introduction

Interview Skills- An IntroductionInterviewing is one of the most important skills one can have in the workplace. You cannot move in or up without passing the interview. Yet as important as it is, few people ever take the time to study material on the skills needed to master that process. They go in to an interview, answer the questions as best as they can and hope for the best. However, there IS a process. There is a technique to interviewing. It’s just as important as your resume’, skills, experience, and accomplishments. A good point to make also is this: Even being your very best or THE very best doesn’t mean you will get the position though.  You may be the very best salesman in the company and that may come out swimmingly in the interview. But the fact is the person is not JUST looking for someone who is great at their job. They will also be looking for someone who will make a good “Fit” for that particular position. For Example, if the position is a supervisor working directly und…
