What Have You Achieved By Midday?

Tell me if this sounds familiar – when noon is approaching you realize you haven’t yet achieved not even half of your scheduled tasks?
autopilot

What Do You Do On Autopilot?

What do you mean you don’t work on autopilot? You may very well think you don’t, but you have another thing coming.
lying

How Can You Handle a Lying Colleague?

With or without intention, when a colleague – be it a peer, subordinate or worst case, a superior – is lying to you, it really sucks big time and any future collaboration with that person becomes questionable.
priority

How Do You Set your Highest Priority?

It’s very good to have priority, especially when the rest of the world needs to wait for you. Of course, this lasts until somebody decides to dodge you or runs you over on the cross-walk.
democracy

There Is No Democracy Within Companies

I hope you didn’t think there is democracy within the companies you work for and that we each get a vote on how to do our job. This thing with voting applies merely when choosing a location for the end of the year party, not for serious business decisions.

If you’d realize how important and critical I am for the company I work for, you’d realize they will be lost without me. Does this sound familiar?
office politics

Office Politics

As much as we want to say that it doesn’t exist or that “we” don’t have it, office politics has a very important role in any organization.
train yourself

How to Train Yourself

When the company doesn’t provide the training (you think) you deserve, you always have the option to train yourself. You are responsible for your presence.
anyone

You Cannot Teach Just Anyone, To Anything

You cannot do anything, you can’t become anyone, the same as you cannot learn anything, but what matters a lot is the “teacher”.

I know you have a super important project to finish in order to meet a DEADline and there’s no way you can get enough sleep.
