How To Survive The Dark Side Of Corporate Life
Jim Rohn has said, “Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune.”
Similarly, Benjamin P. Hardy once wrote, “Spend 20% of your energy on your work and 80% of your energy on recovery and self-improvement.”
Said Benjamin P. Hardy, “Success is 20 steps in one direction instead of 1 step in 20 directions.”
Said James Allen, “Circumstances do not make the man, they reveal him.”
Impărtășesc câteva gânduri referitoare la șofat, conduita in trafic, șofat defensiv si așteptări de la autorități.
Gânduri despre romani in general la volan
- Nu semnalizează schimbarea direcției de mers
- Nu se încadrează corespunzător pe banda de mers
- Nu acorda prioritate la trecerea de pietoni
- Nu se asigura la efectuarea manevrei de depășire (asigurare in fata, nici in spate)
- Nu folosesc luminile de drum
- Nu au o conduita preventivă si nici nu sunt atenți : in trafic suntem foarte imprudenți si agresivi
- Nu prea se concentrează pe sofat(vorbesc la telefon fără handsfree, stau pe social media, orice mai puțin sa fie activi implicați mental in activitatea de a șofa)
- Nu folosesc corespunzător banda a 2 a de pe autostrada (romanul s-a născut pe banda a 2 a)
- Sunt relaxați in privința consumului de alcool la volan
- Nu avem cultura mersului pe autostrada deși paradoxal ne dorim autoastrazi si “civilizație ca afara”
Evident nu ma refer la toți romanii, însă marea majoritate din păcate se încadrează la observațiile de mai sus, observații ce vin in urma a 19 ani de supraviețuit in trafic.
Two of my favorite quotes regarding leadership and management:
”Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won’t cheat, then you know he never will.” – John D. MacDonald
“Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles like honesty, integrity, and treating people with respect.” – Stephen Covey

During these exceptional times of a global crisis, companies are changing the way they work, shifting to working remotely, or working from home scenarios across the IT ecosystem.
Companies everywhere are currently shifting operations for safety reasons to temporary remote operations-creating a couple of challenges in staying connected, engaged and productive.
In response to those challenges, the opportunity now is to lead with calm and inspire confidence in these times of crisis, providing the context for team members to feel safe and contributing to initiatives while facing the challenges of remote work and global safety issues.
My opinion is that this quote from Gartner will be key in filtering the companies that will succeed or fail at the end of 2021 :
Organizations are often dragged down by “organizational debt,” which includes technical, process, data, architecture, talent, security and social debt. Collectively this debt affects value proposition and brand. The cause is an extensive and expensive set of business processes underpinned by a patchwork of technologies that are often not optimized, lean, connected or consistent.
