I think I should call this 'Relationship Weekend' or '2cents Weekend' and give it its on tab on the menu once I figure out my css..lol.
Who laughs at their own joke?Me!
Well, yet another week gone. Time to reflect on its productiveness or the lack of it. Assess it like a consent form before agreeing to be wheeled to surgery!
<---what manner of expression is this?:o
Like the weeks end needs assessing, so do our relationships at work and away from work.
Our relationships away from work are very significant because they, somehow, ultimately affect our work, one way or the other.
So, you've been dating your man/woman for some years now. It does not matter what you want from the relationship, marriage or fringe benefits, ceteris paribus (all things held constant.
Ps..excuse my language preferences. My grandmother reckons il fall for someone in academia so I'm merely practicing
), I believe in progression. Most humans do.
If there's no progress i.e. No sign of commitment(for whoever falls in this category- a lot of people do), contractual changes with augmentation of benefits(for those looking at fringe benefits) or a scheduled visit to the jewelers(for those looking at marriage), ASSESS my dear friend, ASSESS.
My pastor says, "You cannot make omlettes without breaking eggs".
I'm quite sure he read it off one of those 'Zig Ziglar' or 'Chicken for the soul books'. makes a lot of sense though.
Back to my pastor. A good relationship cannot be based on unsure footing. You must be willing to ask the tough questions, take bold steps and stand your ground, even though it might not always wash well with some people.
(i) A friend of mine says "Don't make dating your boyfriend/girlfriend a career". I agree. Even people with careers get upgrades with time for doing a good job.
So, either you're terrible at what you're doing and need to review career choices or you've a horrid boss who is averse to good work and/or effort!(in which case you need to flee and focus your creative juices on another boss or YOURSELF)
ii) Don't be too lenient with people. I doubt your boss is on you.
Speak your mind. Set targets(
Clear and achievable ones..remember you're dealing with humans who like you, fall short of the glorrraaayy
), be keen and clear on what you want before you get into anything.
Lemme know how it works out;)
ps..wondering what case interview is?? Yes? Then make this
