PUT YOUR HAND ON THE BUTTON: CAN YOU MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS WITH OTHERS CAREERS

Man in Gray Suit Playing Chess

“Can you make the decision?”


some people gotta go

We all have these dreams of being this boss of our own or even another company. But what happens when you are the one that has to make the decisions to let go of someone, or better yet many people? Then you have the feeling of do I really want to become the boss making the decisions. Because no one with any shred of humanity would think to get rid of someone, putting them in a position to sleep in the street. Yet, we all have jobs and that job may require you to perform that task. But what happens when the task is eliminating thousands of jobs? How do you go about making that decision?

nothing personal just business

Try not to take your job too serious. Because if you find yourself in that role, you have to look at the situation from it’s business and never personal. But that’s hard to assume because why did they choose this 1,000 people to lay off and not this bunch. Was there some sort of blind draw, or were there a group of people who were considered the under-performers? And hey, easy for the boss to say whatever, they have a job still.

your day may come

Never get too comfortable in your boss position firing people. Always have that empathy because you never know, you could be next on the chopping block. There are plenty of top bosses that lose their gig and are left with their hands in the hand not knowing what to do.

OUTLAWZ: THE FASCINATION WITH THE CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD

“They play hard, take what they want, and live it up.”


We watch movies about them, documentaries, and even read their life stories. They are the criminal underworld and for whatever reason we have this fascination with them. The most notable would have to be the Italian Mafia. They have been the interest and the inspiration for so many films in mainstream America. But what is it; what is it about these outlaws that intrigue society so much. The mafia is the biggest, there are also drug cartels and bank robbers as well. There is this mystique about them that attracts us to the life. None of us have the guts to live their lives, yet we are attracted to who they are and what they do.

Let’s look at the cast of people starting with the most popular; the American Mafia. No matter if it’s the Italians in New York and Chicago to the Irish in Boston, we are attracted like magnets to the mafia. From the way they dress to their cordial personalities. Even with the gentlemen like qualities, we still know what they are capable of doing under the right circumstance. But Image result for mafianonetheless we are allured by the racketeering, money laundering, loan sharking, gambling, and light weight drug trafficking. They take what they want and if the authorities put pressure on me, then hey, why not pay them off as well. Then once holidays come around, let’s hand out toys and turkeys to the community. It made them infamous with the law and revered with the public.

But what about the drug cartels? Guys like Frank Lucas to Pablo Escobar all the way to today with El Chapo. We hear about them running multi-billion dollar organizations and eluding authorities. Their lifestyles are so over the top with luxury vehicles, expensive jewelry, and palatial real estate. Their Related imagemuscle in how they deal with people leaves us terrified, yet they still have this aura about them that you stand on the sidelines and gawk. They have been immortalized in our pop culture, mainly through hip hop/rap lyrics. But why, what is the real reason we are so attracted to the criminal underworld?

In my opinion, they represent everything that we hate about our government, that the government makes us do. The don’t pay taxes, buy and sell whatever they want, and live over the top lifestyle most of us can only dream about. And when they die, we have these photos that almost serve as shrines making them martyrs. The communities they live in are more protected by them than our law enforcement. Everyone knows who runs the neighborhood and respects who runs the neighborhood. Unlike the judicial system which could allow people to walk free, you don’t break the laws and codes of their world. And that code is the biggest thing we respect. On paper, systematically, there is code in our society, but our politicians break that code and promise at every turn.

In the end, we will always be fascinated with the criminal underworld. Their lives seem to be so much more fascinating than our own lives. Plus, the very representatives that are hired to represent the people, these criminals flip them the finger to. We’re able to look on at how for once politicians are forced to do their jobs to catch these outlaws. The allure to the gangster lifestyle is eternal and will never end. Because as long as there is a law that could potentially be broken, someone will always try to find ways around it.

SUPERVISOR OR DICTATOR: DO YOU NEED TO BE A TOUGH EMPLOYER

Image result for supervisor

“Who do you prefer to work for in life?”


We have all worked for them, and can’t stand to be around them. They are supervisors on jobs who you live to hate. They are the overbearing types that push and push and push until you do something or say something you regret. They don’t have much power in their own lives, so having a say over you is worth coming to work for them. But I have to ask the question, Do you really have to be hated to be respected on a job? Do you have to carry a big stick in order to grab people’s attention? My answer is no, you don’t have to be the dictator in order to get people to listen. So why are there people like this on the job?

Like I said before, for starters, they are people who don’t get respect in their daily lives outside of work. So when they get on the job, they can be some of the hardest people to work for. Not receiving respect in your daily life in society makes you resent. But most of all, these types of people who don’t get respect know people who do. And if you are someone that get respect easily, and you work for someone that don’t, they can sense it. And they will make your life hell because you remind them of how much they don’t get it. You will also remind them of the people in society that they want respect from and don’ get it.

See, you don’t have to be the dictator to get people to listen. One of the ways to get people to listen is connect to your employees. This task is easily accomplished when you are a good communicator. But most of all, the people who work for you will be able to read that you are a good communicator. So you won’t have to be the dictator type because you know what people need and they know what you expect from them. But, are there other reasons as to why employers may be the dictator? What about the physicality of the person in charge or their gender?

Physicality can play a role in the type of supervisor you’re going to get. At times, you notice men who are less attractive and shorter, I’ve noticed can be tough. Well, how so, how does this play a factor in the way they supervise? Being in the midst of more physical alpha males, you see this Napoleon complex where they might be tougher on you than anyone else. Or if they see people naturally connect to you because you look a certain way. As far as gender, women and men have different styles of supervising. I have had either very friendly or very rude women I have worked for. The very tough feel they have to be because since they are a woman people feel they can walk over them. And the very friendly act this way because they don’t want to come off as too aggressive.

In the end, working for an employer can be either an enjoyable or depressing work environment. Now, for the chosen few who work for themselves and are able to elude this, consider yourselves lucky. Then again, if you are your own boss, chances are, you have employees. So it may be you who is the intolerable employer.
