Friends…What is a friend??
When does the person who is your assistant become the one who comments on what you the leader does? It is sometimes a precarious situation as you might mentor a young person who is starting out in the business world and that person tries to becomes you or tries to tell you what to do! As someone who started as a file clerk and now is in executive management realizes it takes time to grow and learn to climb up the corporate ladder. You need to prove yourself and put in your time. I have another person I know who is 18 and wants to work as a cook. He feels Burger King is not the place because he is a cook. Meanwhile is his only 18 and has not paid any dues yet! So this tells me we still have a drive to get ahead but the youth need to learn some respect and take the time to learn…………………. High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation. Charles Kettering
The person you are attracted to ………….are they what you really think they are?? We all have friends that come to us telling us about the person they met who is great looking and when we see them we think, “Are you kidding??” So I have come to think beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I recently had a friend who told me how “hot” her boyfriend was and I thought is she talking about the same person I am seeing?? What is attractive? Is this the same as if a tree falls in the forest does it make a noise since no one is there to hear it?? I think in the end it is who is attractive to you and who makes your heart do a flip. What is attractive to one person may not be attractive to another. Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them. David Hume
Let’s see you meet someone on a dating site and you email him and he does not email you back. Next thing you know he emails you back a couple of weeks later and is eager to strike up a relationship via emails and im only. So you email back and say “hi” and he is emailing his life story and his parents’ life story and telling you that is enamored with you!!! He does not even know your last name yet. But he has a dog so you forge in with another email. You figure why not meet and make sure he is who he said he was a not a Nigerian trying to get your money. He tells you “it is not the right time to hold your hand and meet” so you say just asking for a beverage not a commitment. You say “ chow” “see ya” “goodbye” and move on…….. Got to love the stories……….. I’ve been dating since I was fifteen. I’m exhausted. Where is he? Kristin Davis
