What she really means…

And this post proves my point. Women are so complicated…

decodingit

Wow so you named your blog the decoder and it’s taken you four bloody months to actually decode something. About time isn’t it?

Well you know what they say – good things come to those who wait -here’s six of the most-used phrases of the female population accompanied by a male-friendly definition. Enjoy.

  1. I’m fine’If you have ever believed a woman who has informed you she is fine it’s a miracle that you even have a girlfriend. No female has ever uttered those words and genuinely meant it. It is an excuse – a polite way of telling you that you have pissed her off. So please take the hint, leave her to cool off and do not question her like you’re the Spanish Inquisition.
  2. It’s not you it’s me’ Drum roll please. It is you. You have screwed up and now you’re left with…

Career Awareness

Yesterday at work I got approached by an Internist and he asked me if I could help him with a “project” later on.  According to him “some little kids are coming to learn about the hospital”.  The first thought through my mind was “Little kids?  Maaaaaaan!  I can talk to little kids for days”.  But in reality I wasn’t excited about it.  Don’t get me wrong, I love kids but for some reason I wasn’t feeling it.   I didn’t say no because I didn’t think I could.  So I said yes and hoped that my supervisor would say no since we were pretty busy.  Before I finished asking her she said “Yes, I was the one who put you down as a volunteer”.  Man, that wasn’t the answer I was looking for.

Couple of hours later the kids come through the door.  I was expecting some little kids with leftovers from breakfast all over their mouth and apple juice stains on their shirts.   Nah, instead I had to help guide some high school seniors through the hospital.  I could easily tell that they were super excited to be here because of the way most of them were glued to their phones.   Nothing surprises me anymore.  It seems like kids nowadays don’t have any respect for anyone.  Luckily for me the Internist I was helping doesn’t like being disrespected so he just asked them to put it away or they could step outside.  He went ahead and did the tour part with the kids and came back to the meeting room with all of them.  That’s when I found out that I was supposed to go in there and have a chat with them. Answer their questions and just give them some tips.

I walked in the room and surprisingly they were all quiet and were ready to listen.  For those of you who don’t know me, I have zero problem talking to people. I love talking, if I could get pay to talk I would do it.  So I just went in and did what I had to do.  I asked the kids if they had any questions and to my surprise about five hands went up in the air.  They asked questions ranging from parties in college to the path I took to get to graduate school.  They just wanted to know more about what the future holds for them.  The things they should prepare for and see how things work around the medical world.  Obviously not all of them want to be in the medical field but I do hope that the little chat we had inspires them to continue their education past high school.  I do believe that professionals and older students like myself can inspire at least one or two kids to hopefully get a degree and start a career.  Also a big shout to whoever came up with the idea of a career awareness field trip.  You da man!

The Confidence Wheel: how to help yourself

One of the biggest challenges in an organisation, especially when looking at capabilities, is the issue of confidence.  Personal confidence, team confidence, organisational confidence.

There are times we know we are full of ability but we don’t have the confidence to act on it…

I also see people full of confidence, but without the capability to do what they want or need to do…

How can you make sure that you have the realistic confidence needed to achieve your goals?

No one can steal your joy!

Something to ponder upon…

The Persistent Platypus

Remember this: No one can steal your joy unless you allow them. There are always going to be people who upset you. There will always be circumstances we can’t control. Life is full of things we have no say over. However, the good news is that we have control over our responses. We have a say in how we react. When something doesn’t go your way, don’t give in to negativity. Tell yourself that this may not be how I wanted my day to go, but I am bigger than my circumstances. I am strong and I will make the choice to be joyful no matter what!

Remember, joy doesn’t have to mean happiness. If you are in a dark situation you can still have joy. You can hope for healing and have faith that your trial will come to pass. That is true joy. Never giving in when all…
