I remember the first time I saw a real sumo wrestler – well, not in person, but we watched sumo wrestling in high school in a gym class. All I could think of was, I hope those diapers stay up! Big men – extremely heavy – banging around trying to push each other off the mat.
This past week the IT department took two days to do some education and team building. They had Kevin Metcalf come to do sessions on SA history and mission. I was only in for one session but it was excellent as you would expect.
After the education session was some fun and team-building. People seemed to be reluctant to participate so I jumped in (that’s what happens when you are an extrovert).
Then the fun began. It was a great effort just to put the outfit on and off, but worth every minute! The group had great fun.
If you know me, you will know that I hate silence. Well, most of the time. There’s a place for it, but even these days as Wendy is away I will have music going in every room. I will have Netflix playing even if I am not watching. I just hate a quiet house.
At work, I find I can concentrate better if I have some music going. Or something happening in the background. And please, not white noise! Ahhh…. not white noise. Who invented that?
When I’ve been driven mad by the white noise here’s what I like to listen to.
What do you like to do when concentrating? What’s your kind of music?
I have been doing job interviews lately, and most of the roles I am trying to fill are not junior roles. The managers who I do work with though are finding a trend in hiring and this video – a parody of an interview – but frighteningly real!
If you are a Millennial – you may want to set a good standard and change the way this generation are viewed.
