10 Tips For Working At Home

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Internet Home Business Blog has a very good article that makes a number of good points for those attempting to work at home. It’s not as easy as you think, especially in the areas of time management and organization. It is well worth a read. Below is a quote on email management, one of my pet peeves in life.

#4. Is Really Timely and Relevant
You have to limit the time you spend with e-mails. Decide when is the best time for you to look at your e-mails and stick with it. Some people spend half an hour first thing in the morning, while others spend the first few hours of their work day, when they are still fresh and energetic, focusing on money-making ventures and then spend some time looking at e-mails later.

A Quick Comparison Between Work & Prison

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

A little humor as it’s Wednesday and the Monday holiday is but a fading memory buried under an avalanche of work, meetings and impending threats of overtime.

  • IN PRISON……you spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell.
  • AT WORK……..you spend the majority of your time in an 8X8 cubicle.
  • IN PRISON…….you get three meals a day.
  • AT WORK………you get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.
  • IN PRISON……….you get time off for good behavior.
  • AT WORK…………you get more work for good behavior.
  • IN PRISON……….the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
  • AT WORK…………you’re often required to carry a security card and open all the doors yourself.
  • IN PRISON………you can watch TV and play games.
  • AT WORK………..you get fired for watching TV and playing games.
  • IN PRISON……..you get your own toilet.
  • AT WORK……….you share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat.
  • IN PRISON……….they allow your family and friends to visit.
  • AT WORK…………you’re not supposed to even speak to your family.
  • IN PRISON………all expenses are paid by the taxpayers.
  • AT WORK………..you pay all your expenses to get to work, and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.
  • IN PRISON ……..you must deal with sadistic wardens.
  • AT WORK………..they’re called managers.
  • IN PRISON…..you spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
  • AT WORK ……you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.
Have a Good Day at Work! Keep breathing. It is only two more days until the weekend. Next week, you have to cubicle for five days straight.
