Whatever, this is how I feel. Yes, I see the irony in writing a post titled, "Nobody cares about your feelings," that is really my feelings...
Comments17/11/2017 #31 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI love your rants @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian! You brought up a good point about the woman using the term "sexual harassment" & told her friend to "report him to HR" with the culture we are facing today. No, he should not be reported and NO that is not harassment! I had a boss once who used to come into my office and he would start trying to rub my back and shoulders. I wasn't comfortable with that and would say, "Knock it off Bryan!" He would back up, and say to me... what.. whaaa, you don't like that?" My reply, NO, I don't want your grubby hands on me. He did this more than once and the more I spoke out to him, the worse he treated me as an employee. I never once thought of reporting him, I felt I was able to stand my ground. I would just categorize him as a womanizer back then and a creep lol. Oddly, his wife divorced him, I wonder why?? I wasn't the only one he did that to.
I did have a point to make above, I fear women may report every incident as sexual harassment if they feel they can. Yes, report if if you've truly been sexually harassed but don't cry wolf.
As for Movember, Ok, looking to see if your fly was down, I literally laughed. People can be so anal... seriously, not comfortable with a beard? My husband and son are both participating in Movember too.. this is my son's third year, husbands first year. Kudos to you for participating too. My husband looks like a grubby mountain man right now haha. But, it's for a very good cause. For those that aren't aware, Movember is to raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental health issues in men. They grow mustaches and beards. Mustache in particular but many grow beards along with the mustache. KUDOS Men!!17/11/2017 #28 Nicole ChardenetKiller post, Paul!!! I was just having a similar conversation tonight with a couple of gal pals, one of whom's my age and the other of whom is twenty years older. I was arguing that making a fuss over 'gender pronouns' is a sign that you have First World Problems. That 'safe spaces' primarily spring from the very real need to provide truly safe spaces for certain people, primarily abuse victims, to speak freely, but that it has since become an excuse to shield one's self from any inconvenient opinions someone else cares to yell down your echo chamber. That some people seriously need to just Suck It Up, Buttercup. Too much victimhood going around. I hope you talked that ditz bomb out of reporting that guy to HR. If that's the worst thing that happened to her all year, she leads a very charmed life indeed...16/11/2017 #22 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#21 I dunno if it was playing hard to get, or just a good judge of character. I was 40 freshly divorced, and just ended a "relationship" with a 22-year-old.
Okay, so I was a stereotype. My wife is actually 3 years older than me. . . Now that I said that publicly, I doubt I will ever get any older. Send chocolates in lieu of flowers to my funeral.
Note to recently divorced men: Better a 20-year-old single malt than a 20-year-old girlfriend.16/11/2017 #21 Renée 🐝 Cormier#10 Woman #2 types are the ones that ruin it for everybody because they don't have the intellect to understand the subtleties of communication.

I can't believe it took you four tries to convince your wife to date you. Talk about playing hard to get!16/11/2017 #19 Phil FriedmanI think I know where you're coming from on this, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. I remember overhearing the following conversation:
#1 - I hate this damned computer, it keeps losing its connection to the office WiFi network.
#2 - Why don't you talk to George in the IT department? I'm sure he'll know how to fix the problem.
#1 - I would, except George creeps me out. He always makes fun of me, even calls me "computer illiterate" -- he and his nerdy geek buddies in that department. They make me feel stupid, just because at one time I thought "binary" was a designation of sexual orientation.
#2 - Wow, that's awful. Did you report the problem to HR? Isn't digital harassment against company policy?
#1 - I did once. But they asked me whether George had ever flashed me his drive -- or something like that. Or asked me if I really wanted to see what a terabyte-sized drive looked like. How gross! I refuse to go back to those beasts in IT. Nowadays, I just eat lunch at my desk, while I reboot my computer and ... shove my sandwich scraps into the slot on the front marked with a storage icon.
No offense intended to any gender, confused or otherwise.

Comments29/10/2017 #13 Savvy Raj#10 Your response to this buzz has opened up new directions of thoughts in the offing . There is much to be delibrated on the many thoughts you have interweaved in your words that I enjoyed reading your reflections . So thank you for your sharing them @CityVP 🐝 Manjit
History is indeed full of examples of visionary leaders who have seen ahead of their times and forged ahead.
Is the ability to think beyond and believe in the unknown influenced by the situation and circumstances of ones life and times .Or can nature endow a certain stream of consciousness in coorelational of utter randomness that flashes in relational wavelength across and beyond dimensions bending time and space to envision the unforeseen...
I liked in particular your share of Einstein's famous quote that God does not play dice with the universe .While Einstein may have had his reasons to reject the idea of quantum mechanics and while there may be much evidence today to support it ... it is perhaps yet to find an allignment to many important theories of physics. And to envision all life and living occurs amidst this randomness and potential possibilities.29/10/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWe who see the world this way are cut from the same cloth, but metaphorical clothes make the human as much as clothes make the man at the concrete level the world actually communicates. The problem with visionaries is that often they stumble onto a vision through trial and error and thus luck and mistake is the basis of this formation, but the abstraction in leadership which can envision the road ahead is not a common thing. While we celebrate people like Steve Jobs for having excelled at this capacity to see what others at his time could not see, there are many people who see something that the rest of the world has not caught up to. We call this kind of person as being ahead of their time. This does not serve the poor soul who find themselves shot down for being ahead of their time - and this is even more true in the field of scientists and intelligentsia. How many times as an innovative mind been punished for seeing things differently and how many times have we seen these people end up doubting themselves, rather than coming to terms that their gift is something the world is not ready for or the people of a particular time do not yet welcome. None of this is pie-in-the-sky, because history has shown when bright minds saw something the rest of us did not. Had Einstein been born in the time of the Spanish Inquisition, he would have burned by the Spanish - fortunately he shared his mind at the right time, but yet some of things he envisioned were finally proven decades after his death. Then there were things in quantum mechanics that even Einstein found it bizarre to think about, when he said "God does not play dice with the universe".29/10/2017 #5 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador" Who are you? Are you more of the visionary kind?"
"Or are you the more cautious realist who weighs your options before every step?"
I like to think of myself being a little bit of both. I enjoy stepping out of the box, yet I believe some caution is necessary - mostly the use of common sense will suffice.28/10/2017 #3 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"Creativity stems from the acceptance of your authentic self.

Comments14/10/2017 #14 Savvy Raj#1 #2#4 #6Thank you both City Vp Manjit and Ali Anani for your interesting interaction to this post... Here is a bit of reflections in line with your thoughts here.
Balancing is a fine line
In the shifting estimation of times
Between the over and under
Lies the truth to sense within ...
Witness the path of the flow
Acknowledge both the yin and yang
As they arise and settle
Choice is yours in every now
What comes and goes Is always there
As all matter is energy in one form or other
Know the path you choose completes you
For guided you are by innate awareness.13/10/2017 #8 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#6 Then I shall walk the talk on corrugated roads so as to forget about personal branding @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Walk is a slippery word here because in writing the walk the talk I didn't say where to do the walking. It could be on an iceberg, on fallen flowers, on thorns, on stick muds, on sking sands or even in the air. We need to experience life in all its forms.13/10/2017 #7 Ian Weinberg"And so you enter the next moment of your life, warts and all –
A moment that has never been lived before. For in that moment lies
pure potential for all possibilities and all things.
And as you enter the moment ….. pause.
And as you pause, see and hear and touch. And feel
the sensations of your body. But in that pause, don’t think.
Rather, acknowledge all that is. The natural forms, the structures
created by the work of yourself and of others. And celebrate all that is –
the form, the function and the blessed presence of it all..."

Thanks for inspiring @Savvy Raj13/10/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee it is among the easiest things in the world to declare "know thyself", it is also the hardest thing to do. We underestimate our own limitations beyond which we do not explore. This is true of every human being save a handful that have succeeded such as Buddha or Jiddu Krishnamurti. "Walk to truth" is difficult. "Walk the Talk" is merely personal branding.

Here at Abodoo we have experts who have faced the issues you mention and have learned the lessons of remote working over a 7 year period and we want to share our learning with other organisations. Remote working is good for the employee, the employer but also society as well. Thats why we are so passionate about our 'movement' #101/08/2017 #1 Numo QuestAs experienced in IT, also specifically in early flexible/remote working and teleconferencing, mid nineties of last century, we were working on a number of possibilities for a large international. Since IT's focus is on strategic gain, in this instance reducing costs, it may become understandable that if you prevent half the staff from traveling, you are talking about millions of immediate savings that partially can be invested elsewhere. WinWin. By fully implementing access from anywhere tot the networks, mind you, this is pre LAN/WAN era, telephone lines only, we had to think very smart and achieved to prevent over 50% of the expats to even travel more than half.
Three elements of utmost importance to consider...
Remote working will pose a closer eye and investment in security and control
2. Not every discipline is suited for remote/flexible working
Think production work, think transport, think factory work, think stock and shop work. It basically is limited to smaller and free disciplines and jobs as well as office automation for the more flex disciplines such as traveling representatives, IT staff, Internet developers.
3. Not every person is suited for remote or flex working
Not everyone has self discipline or stability or perhaps unstable situation to work remote. Working remote partially can be monitored but we know out of experience that it may take a very long time to detect some simply don't have 'it' bud are real masters in hiding that.
