1) We Are Categorized On Our Date Of Birth – NOT Our Interests
Think about it. Look at your office your closest friends and your social networks. Are you all the same age? Of course not. But you DO have the same interests in common. I guarantee the key things you were interested in up to the age of seven are EXACTLY the same type of things you are interested in right now. The problem is you probably don’t get to enjoy those experiences anymore. If you did, you would be much happier and if you could add those basic pleasures to the daily mix of your business day (or even get a job that allows you to get paid for doing elements of it) you’d never have a bad day again.
2) We Are Forced To Learn EVERYTHING – NOT How To Learn Anything
Why did you need to recite so much stuff ‘parrot-fashion’? The ability to adapt and learn new skills quickly is far more useful to you than trudging through years of difficult calculus and trigonometry. You will probably never use them again for the rest of your life. Instead, if you need that expertise, you’ll Google it or hire a specialist (who actually enjoyed it at school).
Concepts in modern finance remain an imperative tool for managers and employees, prompting a debate which offers the prescription of financial education and training to the selected few within the finance department catering to investment or financing needs of the organization.
In a profit propelled environment, it is increasingly important for businesses, regardless of size, to encourage their human resource in at least attaining a basic understanding of financial architecture, how it improves corporate control, and how is corporate governance exercised, and sync all of that to the most intrinsic element: “maximization of shareholder wealth”.
The present is the future unfolding and the past is the key to understanding the present. The universe responds to a law of cause and effect, whether this be through chemical reactions, laws of physics or human behaviour and action.
In our compulsion to envision our futures we tend to completely ignore the past, we fail to realize how our actions yesterday are having a direct effect on our tomorrow. It is of little wonder we keep repeating the same mistakes time and again proving Einstein correct when he said “insanity is to keep doing the same things over and over again expecting different results each time”.
The reasons aren't arcane or esoteric. Ask what the purpose of a performance review is and you'll usually hear that it's meant to identify and incentivize high performers, give accurate performance read-out to all performers, and contribute to a development plan for people. The aim is ‘not judgmental but developmental' we often hear. Much of this is of course poppycock in practice. If you have a boss dominated hierarchical system of review, where the subordinate is being "evaluated" and the boss, allegedly draped in a cloak of pseudo-objectivity delivers the assessment, here are some things that are almost inevitable.
When it comes to business communication, Skype is an invaluable tool. Its impressive array of features make it ideal for sending files, checking in on business partners, holding video conferences and making international calls. Its popularity cannot be denied; the VoIP client has over 550 million users and actually accounted for 12 percent of the world's international calls in 2009. There's definitely a reason why one-third of Skype users utilize it primarily for business.
