Managed to see more mushrooms near Lake Winnipeg than I have for a while. Shown above, I came across a nice family of Bolets. Fried up these are great with steaks. Without my in house medical and risk officer nearby, I demurred from eating any this weekend.
The others I came across appeared rather toxic, although lovely to look at. These fungi of course play an integral role with the ecosystem.
Do you ever wonder where the inspiration for innovation comes from? It can be like chasing a 6 month old puppy in the park. It’s better for them to come to you. I suggest bacon treats in your pocket.
Dogs are great. Our office has a welcome dog policy. We have two golden retrievers, McGuire and Seamus. They constantly remind me how to facilitate inspiration.
Do you ever walk into the kitchen, and forget why you went in there?
McGuire and Seamus experience life like that. Every change is new and exciting all the time. It’s transcendence.
Coping skill, when you enter the kitchen, just keep moving, and you will pass by whatever it was that you were thinking about and the thought process will be rebooted.
Handy list of items found in a toxic work culture.
The organization ignores the healthy basics. Instead of healthy snacks, the vending machines are filled with sugar, salt, surgery salt, solidified fats and over-the-counter stay-awake medications
The company implies the need to be constantly on line. Perhaps they hand out those little rechargeable battery packs as bonus gifts so your phone can always be fully charged.
The company does not mandate any time off. Employee of the month photos show sallowed faces, and instead of listing how many days without injury, employers list the number of days a staff has gone without a vacation.
The company opposes flexible work arrangements since the attitude appears to that freedom is slavery.
The top management possess the complete works of Franz Kafka, George Orwell and that dystopian one by William Golding.
The company maintains a great benefit plan, but it only covers over the counter products such as Red Bull and Rolaids.
You look up the LOA policy and it only refers to lots of aggression.
If you have one or more of these items in your workplace, then perhaps consider changing the culture or finding a new one.
