It has been a long time coming, but it appears we are near to the end of the handshake, as we know it.

One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

Which greeting is the cleanest?

The next obvious step is the  fist bump, but the question is, if someone extends their hand to you for a handshake, do you respond with a fist bump, just to avoid some nasty germs?

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

Always follow the instructions

Image

I find it helpful, when starting on a new project to always read the manual and  follow the instructions. This will help prevent any fatal errors, such as having to scrap the project and start over.

Image

It is especially necessary to follow the instructions when there are several possible ways of completing the project, but generally there may be only one right way to complete the project without errors.

Always use the correct tool for the job!

Facts about Philippine Overseas workers in Saudi Arabia

Image

Image

There are an estimated 1.8 million Philippine OFW (Overseas Foreign workers) in Saudi Arabia.

Image

150,000 are employed as nurses.

Image

many hundreds of thousands are employed as domestic workers in Saudi Arabia

Image

The sad fact is that 350 Philippine OFWs died last year in Saudi Arabia due to industrial accidents and sickness. This accounted for 43% of all OFW deaths in 2013. (http://www.arabnews.com/news/525651)

Image

800 Philippine OFW’s are currently in Saudi Arabia jails, mostly for alcohol and drug posession.

The abuse of migrant workers in Saudi Arabia
With few opportunities at home, millions of poor, desperate men and women from southeast Asia and the Horn of Africa migrate annually to Saudi Arabia, where many are enslaved and badly abused, or even killed.

Climbing up the ladder of success

The pathway to success

Image

Climbing up the ladder of success

Image

It may not be an actual ladder, but more like stair steps, where one climbs up one step at a time.

Image

Each stair step climbed represents a separate goal on the pathway to success.

haste makes waste

Perhaps you’ve also heard the little gem “If you don’t have time to do it right then don’t do it at all”

Image

In our modern world there is a tendency to do things deliberately as if in a great rush as if there were little time left to do it the right way.  Let’s all SLOW DOWN and get things done the RIGHT WAY by doing them once…not by being in a rush and doing a SECOND RATE JOB .

ImagePlease…..Let’s take our time in our jobs and projects and with patience, understanding and consideration we can get the job done right the first time!
