I sadly lost my mother to cancer about 15 years ago, and I found this very hard to processand deal with at the time. I shut a lot of the grief off and tried to hide it away in a deep partof my mind so that I didn’t have to deal with it. Like a...
At what point in our life did we decide that we would no longer have fun?This is a question I have been pondering a lot on recently, as most people that I speak todon’t enjoy their work, and just look at as something that must be done to pay the bills.Not everyone, as there are...
This week I found an article on the internet while doing some research into the howemployee’s moods affect their performance.
