ask

Ask and You Shall Be Given

Yes, boss, ask, instead of giving orders, and you have greater chance to receive. It’s a little harder for those with a bossy attitude

If You Have a Bad Boss, Replace Him!

The best thing that can happen to your career is to have a bad boss … or more. You cannot possibly collect them all, even though it may seem sometimes that they all ended up on your reporting line.
start tomorrow

I’ll Start Tomorrow

Did everyone survive the syndrome “I’ll Start Tomorrow”, or do you move mountains already? Chill, it was a rhetorical question! I said tomorrow, not today – it’s not like you came back to read the blog post you read yesterday.

The Power of Decision

my dog

What I Learned From My Dog

start a blog

Why Start a Blog

I will provide you now the secret recipe for (not) to start a blog. They may seem many or just a few posts, I don’t know, I wrote once a week.
remote work

Telework or Remote Work

It’s been a while now since remote work was adopted as an option to classic office hours. One out of five employees throughout is part of it.
