Smiling Faces Always Find A Welcome

Andrea from TempDirect

That's why everyone should learn to smile
Remember after all, your troubles may be small
And that is just the reason why I say

When you're blue and kind of lonely too
A little smile can go a long, long way
When you're down, don't sit around and frown

That's why everyone should learn to smile
Remember after all, your troubles may be small
And that is just the reason why I say

When you're blue and kind of lonely too
A little smile can go a long, long way
When you're down, don't sit around and frown
A little smile will go a long, long, way

Never grieve, just try and make believe
the sky is blue although you know it's gray
Never pine, it's just a waste of time
A little smile will go a long, long way.

Please community, stay positive and kind.

Abolish Cruelty to All Species To Promote Kindness

I have published this article to hopefully change the mindset of senseless killings, which took place against our own kind, in New Zealand on Friday 15th March 2019.
Until there is a united understanding that all cruelty and suffering is intolerable, then it will continue. If humans can be cruel to some species, then some reason why not to their own?
Mohammed taught " A good deed done to a beast is as good as doing good to a human being; while an act of cruelty to a beast is as bad as an act of cruelty to a human being."
There are many examples of cruelty and killings to other animals that are deemed acceptable. Whether it be trapping animals that are considered pests, poisoning, baiting, hunting of another species or entrapping an animal for entertainment, how can the limited human pysche divide these actions against their own? To support the unnecessary hunting of another species (often cloaked by making the hunting to rid the world of a 'pest'), makes it possible for some people to give permisson to themselves and others, to believe that the intolerance of another's existance is quite justified. Not many human's need to hunt to survive. It would appear that domesticated human's justify unnecessary killings.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ― Mahatma Gandhi
When we lie in the jaws of a predator, we only do so because we have ourselves have given over to the belief that we took a risk and in doing so, accepted the outcome may be injury or death. To alter the mind we must alter the actions, we must start with asking 'what is acceptable violence and suffering', and be united in the answer is 'none'.
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong". Mahatma Gandhi
We all carry a weapon, the choice is which do you permit - kindness or cruelty?

Signs to Signal or Words to Instruct?

There are many forms of communication that are identifiable to all species. For the sake of this article I will call them expressions (of self preservation).
Some of these expressions have a common colour or symbol perhaps, that is used across species to repel or attract attention. As human beings have evolved, so have the forms of communication in either written or symbolic form. Which form reverberates with identifying a message the most remains to be debated - a sign or a word/s, or a combination of both? Identity has long been associated with attachment. The Japanese, for example, Nissan: 日産 Of all the Japanese automakers, aside from those based on their founder’s names, the meaning of “Nissan” is perhaps the simplest of them all. The kanji 日 “ni” means “sun,” which also happens to be the first character in Nihon 日本 “Japan,” which is why we refer to Japan as the land of the rising sun.The second kanji 産 “san” means “production.” A little creative contraction, and the Japanese pronunciation “ni-san” literally means “made in Japan.” The Nike brand, with its distinct V-shaped logo, quickly became regarded as a status symbol in modern urban fashion and hip-hop fashion due to its association with success in sport. The Golden Arches of McDonalds is a symbol associated with food choice.
Red - Stop. Green - Go. Regardless of how this instruction is given, the attachment to the colour is understood for what it means. The order of the colours (Red at the top, amber between and green at the bottom, in New Zealand) alerts even colourblind people as the order of the lit colour determines the required action. Some lights have both colour to instruct as well as animation to back up the meaning.
There is the saying when one is angry 'to seeing red'. How often have you seen a person give a verbal order as well as become flushed? Red is a prompt to stop and/or listen. Amber is a warning to proceed with caution. Green (like blue) encourages flow. Thankfully I haven't turned blue yet. A raised hand to stop, a waving hand to go. Dogs have been trained to understand different hand and/or voice commands to assist for various purposes, horses trained to voice, hand and leg aids. bulls to charge red flags. Why a species associates colour/form, sound or movement with an instruction can be inherant or learnt behaviour. Signals like smoke are associated with danger and pollution. With all the signs/signals and colours to alert us to danger and/or safety, the most alarming fact is that regardless of what form/shape or noise that pollution is broadcast to us on, we ignore the signals and/or words that ask us to stop. We are putting ourselves and other species at risk by not ceasing proven negative business activities.
With our businesses, we listen to what our bottom line is telling us, to decide what action to take, whether to diminish or grow. Our businesses can only exist if we take notice and act on signs and listen to instructions. Let us treat the planet in the same way we want our businesses to flourish. Our existance is not through our businesses. Our businesses are existing due to generations of self preservation for all species that exist on it.

The Shape Of Your Office Is Not The Constraint

Andrea from TempDirect

As an Entreprenuer, whether you are working in a box or outside of the box, it is not the space that restrains you. Quite often it is the expectation of what to do with the size of the space you are confined to.

As an Entreprenuer, whether you are working in a box or outside of the box, it is not the space that restrains you. Quite often it is the expectation of what to do with the size of the space you are confined to.
What is a place? • In the full sense of the word, a place is a space where relationships are self evident and inter- recognition is at a maximum, and where each person knows here they and others belong. • (Auge, 2010: 229)
Depending upon your type of business, this space may be limited by internet access (WIFI), foot and/or traffic noise, and importantly as an Entreprenuer starting out, what surrounds you in your work space. Don't fret about if you should have designer furnishings, you can make your service classy.
Entreprenuers are generally thought of as people who think 'outside the box', however it is the security of a box that one can take risks in, right? Take for example, a home business set up in a home office or garage. Most start up businesses (that do not require specialist machinery) are started up in such, as they provide a base and known cost for the action of a start up business. How you accommodate your business to fit around this space is vital for the success of your endeavour. Take for example, a virtual assistant. This business is reliant on reliable internet connection, and a lack of interruption, so the location of the start up is confined to where this is provided. At home? Then do not have your office set up in the kitchen if you can avoid it. Nothing like a dishwasher beeping or other distractions to keep you from your clients deadlines. Working for yourself to fuel your passion for the benefit of others has its challenges.
Next time you visit a cafe and note there is no seating available, take a look at the tables. Those who are huddled over their laptops are not doing a service for themselves or you. The cafe has lost a seat to a Flat White, and you are feeling flat that you cannot get a seat. Being an Entreprenuer does not give you the right to use another's space for your own gain. You must think bigger, outside the office you thought constrained you, and allow others to gain access to shared space.
Here and Now • Look around • Find a space • Decide what is interesting about it – what makes it a special place • How can this be revealed through performance?
