Happy Monday #49

Good morning & Happy Monday ūüôā

This week is the week of the eclipse (at least in the Northern Hemisphere).  Come 09:27 on Friday, I shall be sat on a bench in my local country park, ready and waiting for the 87% partial eclipse.

I’m toying with the idea of buying special viewing glasses, but as I just mentioned to the infamous Mr Shaps, I might just fashion a viewing device out of an old cardboard box, Quality Street wrappers and a cookie cutter in the shape of a Christmas tree. ¬†Innovative¬†and swish! read more

Awesome FREE Development Resources

Developing your personal and professional skills are¬†fundamental to surviving and¬†thriving at work. ¬†You might disagree with me here, but the way I see it, if you don’t continue to raise your “standard” it’s logical to assume you’ll remain where you are.

Make sense?

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves¬†–¬†Viktor E Frankl

The fact is that personal development stretches our capabilities. ¬†It expands our outlook to see things that were¬†previously outside our view. ¬†It gives us confidence in ourselves and our abilities. ¬†It removes the ceiling on what we previously assumed was our limits,¬†so we can view¬†exactly what we’re able to achieve. read more

The day we ranked #1 in Google

The day we ranked #1 in Google:

Okay, so this morning I received this text message from my pal Greg (of eagle & chicken fame):

Number one ranked in Google, Celebration, Survive at Work, your one stop resource for work skills, work resources, work tools and work motivation. Hate work? Want promotion? Survive at work will help you thrive at work.

Yes it’s true… SurviveAtWork.com is now ranked first on Google!

That’s number 1 out of the 218,000,000 results which¬†come up when you search for survive at work.

My mind is blown. ¬†Two hundred and eighteen MILLION results… and we’re number 1!

Let me hear you say WOOHOO!!!

It was only back in September that we were celebrating being number 1 on Bing. ¬†Back then, you’ll recall that number 1 on Google was an aspiration… albeit a seemingly unobtainable one. ¬†Since then, we’ve gradually crawled up the rankings, consistently being kept from the top few slots by a few results that appeared to be¬†anchored there,¬†due to the fact they’re “big boy” sites like Life Hacker and Amazon. read more

Happy Monday #31

Good morning Survive at Workers!
 

How’s it going? ¬†I hope you’re all wrapped up warm and driving carefully on these dark, rainy, windswept mornings. The UK Autumn has well and truly landed.

This week’s Happy Monday is for all of you who need a little motivation right now. ¬†If you¬†didn’t really want to get up and go to work this morning for example, then this today’s Happy Monday is for you!

Neil Pasricha is the owner of a site called¬†1000awesomethings.com,¬†where he lists the simple & small little things in life that we don’t really talk about enough, even though they are true¬†pleasures. ¬†Stuff like the first scoop of peanut butter out of the jar, or using Rock-Paper-Scissors to settle anything! ¬†
 
By the way, Rock Paper Scissors is a much under-utilised decision making tool in my opinion ūüėČ
