Different work culture in GenY

I guess inherent in changing a career is meeting people who are younger that are much further on the ladder than one. I say this because yesterday, our entrepreneur visitor/speaker at Maiden Support was a 21 year old branch manager of an internet cafe group that focuses on township areas. HE spoke very well and I think the girls identified with him, if not a bit too much. One of the things I have come to appreciate with human beings is that if someone is of higher knowledge skill, prettier or wealthier, we tend to respect them more. So we listen well and give them much more respect. This gentlemen was not that respected, but I bet you if he came in a benz and wore expensive shoes, he would have had those maidens eating off the palm of his hand. Which says a lot about how much people respect brands

I love Discovery Vitality I really do

ITs impossible to be unaware of your health status when you have a discovery medical aid and vitality. To accumulate points you do or maybe I do everything they want me to do. I signed up for gym but now I actually have to go, and see you have to sign in so you have to go to keep getting more points. So in my cycle of number of times I go, I had to come today or else I miss the 2 in a period of .....dont even remember all I know is today I had to sign into gym. SO driving back from a friends' braai I see a Virgin active and yep I come in. but what to do, kinda tipsy, I have my gym bag in the boot but no, i'kll come in and surf the net. I really should be coming more and I promise myself I will come especially when I am back at home and my daughter wants to go to the gym, cause there is club Vmax and she can swim. SO next week I'll do better, there's just no justifying my size.

May of 2014

I am at my desk, feeling a bit tense. I have an exam on friday on sustainable development, its interesting enough but i cant seem to settle down and focus this afternoon. I have to be an observer at my local voting station in about an hour. I signed up to help so I cant blame anyone. Our neighbourhood Muizenberg is quite small so i dont anticipate being that busy so I can read or listen to Jeffrey Sachs' lectures on Coursera.com. I guess its too much time on my hands that made me seek out my old blog.... I lost my domain by the way so i am not sure how to publish but i can still write. So here's to being back!!!
