Reap The Rewards of Being Positive!
by Phil Schembra on April 21, 2014

Try to surround yourself with positive people. You can learn from them, they will have a positive impact on you and you will be more fun to be around. Go online, read books and listen to tapes dealing with positive thinking. You’ll realize immediately how good it feels to be a positive person.

Be consistently enthusiastic about your actions. Enthusiasm creates easier maintenance of a positive mental attitude. Allow yourself a few minutes of quiet time every day to think positive thoughts, on both a personal and professional basis. Remind yourself of the benefits and rewards of being a positive person.

Time Management...Take Time to Plan!
by Phil Schembra on April 19, 2014

Weekly Time Management Tips!  Time is on your side – as long as you use it wisely. Remember that time devoted to planning and thinking can be every bit as productive as time devoted to doing. The important thing is to allow the appropriate amount of time for each of the activities which are important in your personal and professional life.

The first step in using your time more effectively is planning. By taking very little time to plan what you are going to do, you will gain many times the amount of time you set aside for planning. The time gained can be used for exercise, recreation, learning, or relaxing.

Identify An Ethical Issue
by Phil Schembra on April 18, 2014

If there is an ethical issue involved in the decision-making process, it is only one of the many factors to be considered. In some cases, the ultimate “right” decision will not necessarily be the best ethical course of action, or may require a choice between two ethical courses or between two unethical courses of action.

It is important that ethical issues be given fair assessments, just as the economic or happiness impact is assessed. Ethical issues are sometimes not adequately considered because of the failure to identify them or to recognize that they even exist.
