Job satisfaction implies that the formula is commensurate-you give some things (work) and in return you get some things (fair pay, benefits, etc.). It doesn't imply that all things are perfect; it just implies that there is equity on both sides of the equation. Workplace happiness is a whole different... Continue reading

What is SharePoint? For me, SharePoint is the convergence of all the tools one would ever need in a small business or office environment to efficiently and effectively deliver the exact results that are needed from any number of scenarios. Remember back in the day what word processing was one... Continue reading

Leaders are both born and made but which one is better, the born leader or the made leader? I am a self-proclaimed born leader, and although it took me a while to discover this about myself, I'm no longer shy or inhibited about being the front man I was birthed... Continue reading

So again I ask the question, if you died today would you be satisfied with the life you've lived? If it takes you longer than 10 seconds to answer this question you've got some work to do. Many people spend days of their lives looking through the little rear view mirror reminiscing about what they coulda shoulda woulda at the expense of maximizing the here and now. Have you lived your life to the fullest. Continue reading

Sometimes you feel like your tank is on Empty; like you're about to run out of fuel. But just like you are able to push the car just a little bit further when the guage says you're on E , you can push yourself just a little bit harder, just a little farther. Just do it. Continue reading

My plan was to wake up, get myself ready for work, brew a cup of coffee and head to the train. However, as fate would have it, none of these things were to be. As I grabbed the coffee pot to wash it and brew my morning cup of Joe,... Continue reading

That was the subject line of the frantic email I received from one of my customers who was in the middle of budget season and was trying to gather input from about 100 users. Against my better judgment she decided to start creating folders to store documents rather than just... Continue reading

Do you know what your talents are? Are you maximizing your talents to make your life and the community in which you live work and serve a better place to be? The fact is, many people, even though they are extremely talented, do not look at their talents as assets... Continue reading

Praying and fasting gets us the closest we can ever be to God. Fasting empties out a space inside of us that God can then fill with his spirit. Only then can we become the best that we can be and fulfill out true Quest.. Continue reading

My wife and I have been to three weddings already this year and are on the way to a fourth this weekend. Perhaps the reason why we keep getting invited is because of our marriage karma; LOL. Seriously though, I was only 21 years old when my darling and I... Continue reading

Bernie, Hope your fast went well. We should discuss Sunday.
Fasting Purposefully In part one of this series I discussed the meaning of fasting and how God is enticed by our fasting. Amazing things happen when you fast too. Yesterday a group of us fasted for the benefit of someone else (Tracey) and my wife and I got an unexpected... Continue reading

Your resume is an infomercial; you get one chance to be the gal or guy. Yep, that’s it. If you are not able to get the attention of the recruiter’s indexing system/process in 30 seconds or so, your infomercial gets cancelled. Continue reading

When I was growing up as a kid in Jamaica we used to create and craft our own toys and games because we simply didn't have access to stuff. We were very creative too. One our fall back games, a staple game, was something we called zing zang. We search... Continue reading

I'm an overachiever to a great extent. And even though it may appear that I go all out all the time to the people who know me. The fact is, I am only an overachiever when it comes to certain things; things that I'm really passionate about. Sometimes however the... Continue reading

Alessandra, It will take the republican party a mighty long time to catch up at this rate.
Flo, Glad I was able to provide a little inspiration. Inspiration and motivation goes hand in hand.
True. The people and the environment make a big difference.
Mitt Romney is now ranting that the President won the election because of the gifts he promised to give to those that voted for him. At the end of the day Mr. Romney is right, the President did win the election partly because of the promises he made to his constituents; all of them. It’s the promise of the American Dream. Mitt missed the whole dang thing once again.. Continue reading
