A cloud never dies

Zen Flash


When conditions are sufficient, a cloud transforms into rain, snow, or hail. The cloud has never been born and it will never die. This insight of signlessness and interbeing helps us recognize that all lives continue in different forms. Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, everything is in transformation.

Handling Employees With Problems

Practical Practice Management

stk140058rke

As a manager or business owner it is important to respond to employees as soon as possible when they have questions, concerns or problems.

When employee issues are put off and not addressed in a timely fashion there is the risk of creating a bigger, more complex problem or even loss of a valued employee, as in the case below.

Nancy was struggling to keep up with the workload assigned to her.  She felt overwhelmed, stressed and under trained.  She told her manager that she felt her workload was too much and she needed additional training.  He responded by telling her that he would discuss it with her later when he had more time.

Several days went by and Nancy did not hear from her manager. She really did not want to bug him, as she knew he was busy, but she was falling further behind in her work and…

Employees who value those they work with and for are like rare jewels and a lucky find. These employees seem to be able see the big picture of what their company’s vision is and why what they do is so very important to it.

They also understand that each person who works for the company has a position that is as valuable as theirs. They have all-for-one and one-for-all attitudes.

Do Not Fear Failure

Practical Practice Management

Open doorway

“Reach out and open the door that no one thought could be opened.  Life is waiting behind it!”

~ Kelly Ann Rothaus

It is amazing sometimes at what will stop us from pursuing our dreams or desires.  Many times it is things like fear, lack of confidence, or influence of what others think.  What would we accomplish, if we could just put ear plugs into our mind blocking out all of the reasons why we should not pursue what we want and just went for it?

What is the worst thing that could happen?  That it not come to fruition?  Isn’t that what would happen if we didn’t try at all?  So go for it!  You will never know unless you try, and you will be more inspired about your life because you did.

Is your job predominantly to interact with customers? If so, there are a few key thoughts that are necessary to keep in the forefront of your mind in order to give customers the service they deserve.

The first and probably the most important is how you feel about what you do each day at work.   Do you look forward to going to work each day?  Once you are there what is it that makes you feel like you are fulfilling your purpose?  Can you put your finger on what exactly it is that you do that makes your job one that is satisfying to you?

How do you feel about what you do each day that shapes your overall attitude while you are there?

If asked, would the people who you serve (patients/customers/clients) say, “Yes, you can tell that (fill in your name) really likes their job, they…
