Weird, or Just Different?

So you walk into a restaurant and notice a guy in the corner who has a Mohawk. Is your first thought… “Oh gosh, that’s weird…”?
Have you ever let someone drive you to a location that you could drive to in your sleep?  When they don’t take the exact way that you always drive, you think, “This is the wrong way!  Why is he going such a weird way?”
What about procedures at work…Have you ever done something the same way for a long time, and then all of a sudden, your company introduces a new procedure that’s completely different from everything you’ve ever done? You think, “Ugh! This is NOT RIGHT! It’s weird.”

Burnout at Work? Time to WAKE UP!

You are working 40-50 hours a week. On top of that, you’re taking certification classes for work that are hard to keep up with. You’ve got young children at home, so not only are you working and taking classes, you’re a full time parent who has to cook, clean, do laundry, and attend soccer practices. Even though you’re trying your best, you’re still struggling to make ends meet. It’s getting harder for you to wake up in the morning; your workload is getting heavier and your supervisor is requesting that you complete more projects in less time.

What do your posts say about you?

Many of us have taken a course, or maybe two, on how to improve our communication.  But how does technology impact your ability to effectively communicate?  Most people spend up to 7 hours daily using technologies and social media to include email, texting, blogs, Facebook, Linked In, etc. to communicate.  This replaces face-to-face communication in many situations.  We have access to these lines of communication at all times – with Smartphones and other mobile devices. Technology is fantastic because it allows us to communicate fast and stay connected with a broader base of people.  What do your posts, emails and texts say about you professionally?  Are you being as effective as you can be?
