Now, more than ever, it's important for companies to recognize their staff in meaningful ways that make them feel valued and appreciated. As our economy evolves, people are more uncertain about their future, yet they are being asked to contribute more and work harder.
An organization is only as strong as its people, and these are the people that are working longer, coming up with new ideas, making sacrifices on your behalf, and hopefully helping you survive.
How are you showing them that their efforts are appreciated and that you value them as part of your community?
Change myself. Change my attitude. Change the world. Cycling for a month provides a gentle yet ideal exercise in focussed committment, sustained effort, and mindful awareness of one's changing environs and an experential understanding that 'less is more': zen and the art of cycling.
I know it's going to be really hard to do this, but I intend to slow down. Appreciate life more and do less in a much better way. There is an almost irresistable urge to do more all the time and it is constantly reinforced by everyone in our culture. I want to experiment with doing less and slowing down.
I believe in the poswer of positive thinking, the power of now, creative visualization, the power of appreication, and all these things. I've read the books and believe what they say, I'm just sometimes challenged in incorporating them into my daily life. I want to try to do this more and I might even blog about it here... tbc.
I am the co-editor for a music magazine over at UBC where I am a student. Too often, a record label will send me CDs and half the time, I'll get through the first three songs and then toss the CD aside, labelling it a write-off.
I really need to quit this.
All music has some sort of merit to it and all I need to do is spend enough time listening to any given CD, artist, or song and I'll be able to appreciate it better. I think that if I learned to appreciate more songs here and there, maybe my tolerance for music of ALL genres will improve.
