Good to hear. I can't imagine how it would be to know a child who goes through that. I got my wife an ipad for Vday. She posted it on instagram and all the other women did not respond because they were jealous. I like making other women jealous for valentines day. In the past I would give her 13 roses so she could 1 up the women who got a dozen.
My saving grace when it comes to anger with colleagues is that I'm more effective at convincing the CEO of my view, so if a conflict advances to that stage, I usually win. That said, if every conflict I'm involved with has to be appealed to him, then I'm labeled as a "difficult" employee. If I know I will conflict with an employee about an idea and he will just dig in and be stubborn, I will speak to the CEO first, convince him, then the CEO will give the order about how...
Not that it inspires me, but some might enjoy these NYC subway pictures from the 70s and 80s: http://imgur.com/gallery/NcAAM
This!I'm not very anti-spanking, but most adults who were spanked as kids creep me out with this stuff.
I'm INTJ and my wife is an extrovert. She knows how I am and I don't find myself in a lot of large social situations and I can't stand parties where there is dancing. If I need to go, I always try to have a few drinks while I'm there and talk about when we should leave before we arrive. You should only marry a woman you can recharge around. I'm around my wife all the time and it's great.
1. Absolutely. The best CEOs I have worked for have been obsessed with numbers. In a larger company, my boss was a GM and talked about numbers all day long. He was of an analytical education. He was a math major and could navigate business situations in a very logical manner, but he had a very human side. I admired him a lot. I worked for him when the economy was in the dumps and he worked long hours and had a lot of stress over raising margins by a few percent every...
Yes, I'm much more comfortable with the idea of starting a business now. In a small company I think I've learned the full impact of employment decisions, and knowing what choices I can move away from, how quickly I can move away from them, and which choices will be cemented for a long time. In general, a lot of problems associated with strategy and personnel are highlighted in small business. I think seeing a plan work out in such an environment is a very good way to...
My whole life I looked at that and thought we were seeing the back of the man and always wondered why he was holding scissors behind his head. Now I see it's the front. My mind is blown.
I got this amazing device, but I keep it in a drawer since it's plastic: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0072OFTG2/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a stapleless stapler. It holds pages together like this: It cuts a section of the paper, then folds them back and pushed through a slit. No dirty jokes please. When you put the corner of papers inside the stapleless stapler, it has a guide for the corner of the papers so that it always stapleless staples at...
I think about starting my own company every day. I was seriously considering starting a business on the side and slowly transitioning away from my current job. I think now that I will go the traditional rout and find a job at a larger company, but if I ever get laid off in the future, I will start my own company immediately, but also look for the job concurrently. It's just very high risk and I have a wife to provide for and a future baby to save for. I need some stability...
