Tonsillitis Problem

Still feeling weak from my tonsillitis because it has pus and I'm still having a slight fever. Hopefully the fever would be totally gone by tomorrow so that I can get back to work and blogging by Monday.

Scrub suits are not just for Nurses

When I was still a student in nursing what I really like wearing is my hospital scrubs uniform. I really feel comfortable wearing it, it's loose, it's also attractive. Sometimes I'm tempted to wear it outside after our duty, but its against school regulations to wear our nursing uniform after duty. Wearing it would mean a penalty of additional duty hours from a specific area and a fine. So after our duty we change to our type A uniform or civilian clothes.

Now is different from our days, hospital uniform are sometimes used as casual wears. You'll see people wearing nurse scrub tops with a denim jeans. They looked so cool. There was this time that I ask a person wearing a scrub suit at the mall and asked if shes a nursing student. She told me no, she just likes the design of it. She told me she had this scrub sets ordered online. Wow the net sure make things possible and convenient. As for me, I'm going online too and will buy a pair of custom made scrubs for me and my wife, she too loves to wear

Things not to do at your Workplace

Here are some things to avoid when you are at work, doing this will save you from getting your boss mad or the worse an immediate dismissal.

1. Falling asleep at work. This looks unprofessional and is generally not appreciated by employers. Check your lifestyle or your career choice. If you find yourself drifting off on a regular basis, you are probably spending late nights out or in need of a more stimulating career.

2. Stealing from the office. It may seem like it's no big deal. Bringing home office supplies like bond paper, paper clips and so on. But still it's considered stealing. And it doesn't only apply to material things. Stealing could take the form of using office time for personal matters, like spending so much time on Facebook or chatting with a friend.

3. Taking credit for someone else's work. Again, this can be classified as stealing. You steal idea from a colleague and make it appear as if it were your own. How to prevent someone from stealing your idea? By keeping your supervisor informed of your ideas and your progress.

4. Spreading a rumor about a coworker. You may think some office gossip is relatively harmless, but it sure is damaging not only to the subject but also to the rumor-monger. You can get the reputation of being untrustworthy or downright devious. And it can lead to a lawsuit.

5. Lying about an academic background. In most companies, this is a ground for dismissal. If you feel you don't have the required education, it is better to earn a real degree then lie about one your resume.

Excellent Tips on how to talk to your Boss

Sometime at work we have a brilliant idea to improve your service but your boss has a different idea in mind, the complete opposite of what you have come up. And at time we want to talk to our boss to open up, but without making it look like we are making contradicting his/her opinions.

Here are some suggestions to use when talking to your boss without being too confrontational:
  • Be polite. Always give respect, do not be overly familiar, and avoid sarcasm or offensive remarks.
  • Be professional. Present yourself in proper business attire, and look him/her in the eye when talking.
  • Don't oppose, just suggest. You may have a better idea, but disagreeing with your boss might hurt his/her pride. Make him/her important.
  • Be direct to the point. Do not waste his/her precious time.
  • Be ready to listen. When speaking with your boss, be attentive, make eye contact, and show that you are interested.
  • Timing is essential. If you want to ask for a raise, for example, make sure your company can afford it. Never ask for a pay increase just after the company has announced layoffs.
  • Do not bypass. Observe the proper chain of command. You can hardly do a worse thing to damage your boss than talk to his/her own boss about your idea.
  • Be prepared to handle negative response. Unfortunately, even with your best effort there are times when your boss cannot grant your wishes. Plan to end the meeting with a positive note; there is always the next time.
  • Show your appreciation. Do not forget to thank him/her for giving you his/her time to let you air your views.

Nuggets Of Wisdom at Meetings

Here are some great nuggets of wisdom picked up during office meetings.

  • In management, people learn and respond to what are. Similarly, children adopt their parents characteristics whether their parents want them to or not.
  • Remember the "reciprocity rule" of human behavior. If I had a low opinion of you, you will eventually feel the same way about me.
  • Communication has its limits. Candid communication is advisable only if the balance of power between two persons is relatively equal.
  • Listening is more difficult than talking, People are more likely to change when they have the chance to talk.
  • Praising people does not motivate them. Praise reminds people that they are being judged.
  • Big changes are easier to follow than small ones. If change is big enough to withstand resistance, people are more likely to submit.
  • We learn not from our failures but from our successes and the failures of others. Success encourages us to continue. But while failure is demoralizing, it is important because it tests out limits. It is also human nature to empathize with those who fail.
  • There is no right way to be a manager. Different types of leaders enjoy equal success. Also, organizations thrive because other employees work hard, too, and make leaders look good.
  • Fix situations not people. While it looks life people foul up, situations are the real culprit. Make changes to get people and systems to work better.
  • If there's any one true thing that can be said about leaders, it is that they trust their own instincts.
  • Lost causes are the only ones worth fighting for. They are the most important and humane and make us the best we can be. The absurd lesson of it is one must know what is a lost cause and give his best anyway.
