Any new thing faces the force of inertia!  And that’s just a test! Use greater power and overcome it!  Tom Morris American Philosopher

 

It’s my 5 Year Anniversary on WordPress business account. Thank you all   for:  following this blog, liking a post and sharing your comments with me.  I hope you have enjoyed a number of takeaways.

 

Earlier today I wrote a piece for LinkedIn Publisher that explained that ethics is alive and well, the people who work in large corporations are just like you and me and want to do well, as well as lessons learned in this 21st Century.

                                    Here is that link  “IT REALLY HAPPENED. . .” https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/really-happened-jo-ann-m-radja by @Coach_Jo_Ann on @LinkedIn  

 

Another quotation from the American Philosopher Tom Morris is:  Service puts others first.  And, ironically, it’s in the acts of service that we most often feel our best and become our best.

WordPress has had a philosophy and culture of service over the past five years that I have been a member.  Many of you also believe Service is important.   All the best to you this week as you Choose Who You Want to be Known As.

When is Right, right?

Aside

It usually comes down to what may be expedient, most likely to occur or even, “What’s in it for me?”  I found the above Dilbert cartoon, shared from tumblr, as an example of how we may inadvertently show ourselves as not demonstrating integrity, as in, “When is Right, right?”

Described as the most active public Philosopher in America, Tom Morris, explains that,

“The distinction between what is right and what is easy is one of the most important contrasts that can guide us in our lives and in our careers.”

If we are uncomfortable, uneasy or afraid to take the right step, we place roadblocks to do what is right in our actions at work.   We may even “self-sabotage” ourselves in our careers because we do not trust in our abilities.     Even though the cartoon character, shown above, was labeled as a work avoider and gave an “only if than” response, he quickly recognized it was wrong, then ran to make it right.

However, you Choose Who You Want to be Known As, be true to yourself in your decisions.  Have a great Day!

Reflections on the 1st Friday in February 2015

3dmagicmodelsdotcomTurtlecroppedThe Willis Clan Turning Tragedy into Triumph    We are resilient this Winter no matter where we call home.  I hope you enjoy this link for a bit of music as well as an earlier Blog, published under my name today at LinkedIn Pulse https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/friday-reflections-next-week-jo-ann-m-radja.  The text now follows:

“It is difficult for most people to live up to The Golden Rule, and consequently few of us do so with complete consistency.  Tom Morris

We confront horrible evil and we see the most exalted forms of good more often in art and history than in the ordinary course of daily life.  Tom Morris

Love is simply the most important key to proper success, authentic happiness and genuine meaning in life. . .  despite any appearances to the contrary in our world.  Tom Morris

If you want to communicate your differences quickly to customers, change your label.  Mike Michalowicz

You make a decision, often, on less than one percent of the information, because you have to.  Mike Michalowicz

Identify your top clients and remove the rest of your less-promising clients.  Mike Michalowicz.”
