THIS WEEK’S THEME: WORK
This week’s theme is work from Chapter 45 of my book. By the way, if you have read my book; please do me a favor by letting others know what you thought of it at Amazon address below.
Although I am no longer in the traditional work world, I earned W2 wages from the age of 17 until I was 63. I’ve had 5 1/2 years to reflect on these work years and realize I made many mistakes during those years, but I also did a few things right. More importantly, I had the opportunity to observe a number of people who did a whole lot of things right. So here are a few suggestions you may find of value.
Don’t work for the money, work for the love of the task you are doing.
Do not quit your job until you have found an equal or hopefully better job.
Speak bad of no one, control your anger and accept difficult situations as learning opportunities and stay positive regardless.
Try to lift up everyone you come into contact with be they in a low position or a high position. You are spending the better part of your day with your co-workers, treat them like family. Here is a photo of my family:
SELF-HELP BOOKS IN ADDITION TO MY OWN
This week I am recommending an extremely easy to read book with lots and lots of cool pictures and very few words. However, less is more as a fellow named Edward Everett, who spoke for two hours at Gettysburg before Lincoln gave his less than 3-minute speech.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I think you will find Horrible Bosses really funny. However, I have to warn you that it lives up to its “R” rating.
QUOTE FOR THE WEEK
Work should ennoble,
the human spirit.

You can find the results of last week’s poll by scrolling down to the prior week’s post and clicking on “view results” of that poll.
However, here is a poll that I believe you will find most interesting
THIS WEEK’S JOKE FROM THE DAYS BEFORE CABLE & SATELLITE, WHEN WE HOPED OUR ANTENNAS WOULD WORK.
Two antennas met on a roof.
The Ceremony wasn’t much,
but the reception was excellent
Talking about getting something to work, I brought down an old 1953 Lionel train from that attic. I don’t want to say how long it took me or what it cost; but I finally got the train working as you can see from the video below.
Something else I need to make work is this blog. If you have any suggestions as to what I can do to make it both more helpful and entertaining, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment. All you have to do to leave a comment is to click on the last line of the weekly post, where it says, “Leave a comment”.
