It’s all About Good Deeds

My Day Job No Comments »

There’s a saying, “No good deed goes unpunished.”

As of late, it seems as though my good deed efforts meet with nothing but punishment. I have several recent incidents that support this theory.

It’s all About when Employees Get Restless

My Day Job No Comments »

A topic near and dear to my heart, and almost all about me, is what do you do when you find yourself in a job that just doesn’t seem to be as fulfilling as it once was? I stumbled onto this question when reading a fellow colleague’s blog. It seems he is in this quandry now. I can say it’s all about me because I’ve been there. Read the rest of this entry »
