BRING YOUR KID TO WORK DAY

“They’ll learn a lot.”


WHEN IT WAS OK

When I was growing up as a child, there was something called take your daughter to work day. And it was done to promote women in the workforce; to show girls what their mother did everyday. And eventually it turned into take your child to work day. But today, you don’t hear much about it; some places have even removed it fully. And that is because there is this idea that we must promote working for boys and girls. Yet we still don’t allow kids to go to see where their parents work. I don’t know if it’s because parents don’t see as what they do as interesting. Or if workplaces don’t want parents to have their children on the job for liability concerns.

TIMES HAVE CHANGED

Like I said in the passage prior, we don’t take our children to work anymore. And I don’t know why it stopped so much. People are so politically correct today that it can be seen as a problem. Like I also said before liabilities. No workplace want a kid at the place and potentially get hurt. You get sued because a kid wants an adult experience, no way.  Another reason is because people felt there were beginning to be more opportunities for girls to experience a workplace.

ALTERNATIVES

With the way social media is designed today, there are so many opportunities to have girls be apart of programs. So you really don’t need to take a daughter or any child to work.

STAY IN YOUR LANE: DON’T BE DIFFICULT ON ANYONE ELSES’ BUSINESS

“Your way doesn’t matter.”


HOW I DO THINGS

We all know the people who think that by taking initiative it means to do things their way. When I reality the best way to be is someone that take initiative the way the company would do things when the leader is not around. Your job is to make sure you’re in full alignment with the company policy, but add a little bit of your flair to it. Sometimes the company want one hundred percent by the book. And how you get things done mean nothing to them. They want you to do as they say and that is it. So what’s it with these people who think they are helping a situation? They don’t realize what they are doing to themselves.

JUST DO THE JOB

The people who don’t know how to do things as they are told become more of a problem than an asset. They don’t realize the problems they are causing for themselves. Because in their head, they are doing things the right way, and the company are doing things the wrong way. And if that was the case, you would have your own organization. People who know better than the boss work for themselves. They don’t reach out asking for a job only to be dismissive to rules. You’re clever, nor are your being smart; you’re just bringing a bunch of unwanted attention to yourself.

LEARN THEN DO YOUR OWN THING

If you have dreams of running your own business, then fine. But until then, you get as much learning as you possibly can, then go off and make up your own rules. But in the beginning, you have to stick to the book. And then build your dreams off the clock. Because even in the event when you are in the right, you may still be in the wrong. Why, well because what you are doing does not align itself with the company policy.

JUST CAUSE IT MAKES MONEY DOESN’T MEAN IT’S GONNA BE YOU

“For the money.”


ALL ABOUT THE CHECK

We all have this idea of the career we want when we become adults. And the reason being is because we heard they make a lot of money. But what we don’;t understand is that you don’t come from college making that kind of money. As a matter of fact, you will go years not making that kind of money. And if you’re lucky, you might make a fraction of that in your lifetime. So for all those trying to get the bag quick, it’s not happening. You are better off going into a different career field and living your life. Having the goal and dream is fine, but put life into perspective before pursuing.

THE SKILL THEY POSSESS

Understand something about people who make a lot of money for what it is they do. They once have put a lot of years into what they do. But also, you have to understand that they have a skill to making money. They have something that goes into that career that sets them apart from the crowd. And you’re not looking at that before pursuing. We want to just look at the image of the car, the house, and the overall lifestyle. That in our mind translates into going to school then getting out and having that as a life. And it’s not that simple, you have to have the skill the want to grow and the networking skills.

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

If you don’t like what you do, you will find yourself giving up early on. Because the reality is, you are going to be working for years making little to no money. So the ones that make the big money are the ones who stick it out because they love so much of what they are doing on a daily basis. They are not only in love with what they do, but they love the process. So don’t only love the financial, but fall in love with the process.

HAVING A JOB CAN SUCK

“This stinks.”


9 – 5 BORDEM

Are you working a job that you hate going to everyday? It just becomes this mundane thing that you hate showing up to five days a week. And today, it’s not just one because so many people have to work multiple jobs. So it is not a 9 – 5 anymore. It is now a Monday thru Sunday job workweek. You sometimes forget about the days because you’re working everyday. And this is the point where you realize that your life needs some type of change. You look around and have this thought of dejection from walking into your house everyday. Or better yet, if you are dreading Monday and looking forward to Friday, you are not living. Well, how can you have a job that doesn’t suck?

FINDING SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T SUCK

It’s easy to say to someone to just find a new job. Especially if that person or those people have a career that they love. But you have to make some type of adjustment because living like this will send you into  a life of depression. So the best thing you can do is reach out to people and ask for references on jobs. Or you can just try reaching out via internet portals. Now those jobs are harder to attain, but it doesn’t hurt to try it out. But keep in mind, this process could be worst than staying your current position.

LEARN TO EXIST AND MOVE ON

Have you ever tried to find aspects of your job to care about to make the time go by? You may have to do this until you find a way to get out of your daily grind. Because if you wake up everyday with the mind frame here we go again you start to resent your life. And you will sink deeper into a life of nothing. So figure out something you like, if not something someone, then you can exist until you find something else you like that you are good at. Then it’s easier to find a better job.

FOR LOVE: SHOULD YOU QUIT A JOB FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER

“Which one means more to you?”


for the one you love

Here is the question for today, and that is would you choose a significant other over your career? A lot of people in today’s society would say that this is something that is a big mistake. But if you talk to people from a different generation they might say otherwise. And the reason for this change in society today would have to be because no one want to depend on the next person for anything. And also, there is the idea that what if the relationship does not work itself out. Then you are stuck thinking in your mind why didn’t I take that opportunity that came my way that was turned down prior.

bad decisions

Just understand something people about giving up your career for someone you love. Things have been known to happen, and the problem with this is that you’re stuck in a bad situation. So let it be known that you have to have a backup plan before you decide to give up opportunities. Because people tend to change over time and you don’t want that regret thought in your mind. On the hand, it could workout for you in the end. You could actually find someone that might make you feel a certain way that it’s worth it.

make the move, drop the career

It can hurt some people, but staying for someone and leaving the gig could prove to be beneficial if the person is worth it. Some people might call you crazy for choosing a person over the career, and yes, it is dice, but if it works out, it could be better than the gig. For those that don’t have great relationships, they may encourage otherwise. You just have to do hat is in your best interest not other people looking to get involved.

DEPENDENTS: KNOW WHO YOU CAN CARE FOR

Image result for dependents

“We all have a budget.”


caring for multiples

What happens when you are in a position to have to care for multiple people in your family. And the income that you are bringing in is just not enough to deal with the burden? Then what you are stuck with is the decision to try to make more money, or cut some people off. But since you might be less obligated to cut people off, then you may have to decide if it’s in your best interest to try to find other methods for making money. But how do you make more money, because it’s not like money just magically appears into your bank account. You have have a skill of some sort that renders you the ability to make more money.

don’t be afraid to ask for that promotion 

When you are working somewhere for a very long time, and you know that your income is not cutting it, ask for a raise. Now, it sounds easier than you think because what happens when you get turned down? How do you deal with the rejection because you do have to come to work again tomorrow. and now it creates a weird environment. So, are you prepared to walk off the gig so that your family can do better.

who is on your payroll

Who are these people in the household that you have to care for that are causing you to come out of pocket? Make sure that you can care for them with the income you have or make them pull their own weight as well. If they are wife/husband and kids fine, but other relatives can cause a strain on you. So know what you can handle in life.
