The Power of Negative Thinking

Focusing on the negative makes people forget all the positive things (in life that make it worth living). Moods are contagious and spreading negativity and ingratitude to your fellow human beings should not be allowed. Unfortunately, it’s prevalent across all walks of life in our society. We are generally ungrateful folk. By Fareeha Qayoom

Procrastination and Writer’s block – My Typical Day

I am suffering from over work. Yes, I think it’s a disease too. You develop a tunnel vision. You become compulsive and obsessive (about your current obsession). Which I am anyway – compulsively obsessive…when you add work to the mix, it becomes something totally beyond normal. All work and no play makes you a dull Jill (or Jack whatever your particular case). By Fareeha Qayoom

Negotiating the Communication Minefield

Effective communication is an acquired skill – though, not all managers know how to communicate effectively. Words have meanings and associations – same words can mean different things to different people. Then, there are hidden meanings, fine nuances, body language, and outright contradictions between actions and words, not to mention, human nature…walking through this minefield can be tough – on top of that, you need emotional intelligence and people skills. I don’t think you can ever say you have mastered all the skills of communication and now you have become an effective communicator. You live and learn - it’s always a process. by Fareeha Qayoom
