Putting Work Ahead of Everything Else
Working long hours has somehow become the standard over the past couple of decades, especially for management.
Often faced with super short deadlines and backlogs of tasks, lots of people feel like they have no choice but to make certain sacrifices, mostly at the expense of their personal lives.
Every time theydecide to stay longer at work, another decision follows: “I’ll make it up the first time I get a chance, this weekend or the next.” But do we really do that?
Letting the Bullies Get Away With It
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t been bullied in some way during their school years or later on in life. Every time something like that would happen many victims would think, “I wish I had the strength to stand up for myself, but I was too scared…”
That devastating thought of not being strong enough to stand up to the treatment, or even unfairly judging oneself as being a coward, can haunt a person for the rest of their life.
Not Staying in Touch With Friends
Have you ever asked yourself how many true friends do you have? The friends you can rely on, friends you can call at any time of the day or night when you need them, friends for which you are ready to do anything.
The most sincere friendships are usually formed in the early years of our lives, at school, or maybe in college, but for some reason many of us let those friendships slip away.
Using Smartphones as a Crutch
Life without a smartphone seems almost impossible nowadays. How would we keep up with our work without them? How would we know what our friends are up to if it wasn’t for those little screens which keep us posted on everything?
The answer is pretty simple: the same way previous generations did. That doesn’t mean we should give up our smart devices. Only perhaps every now and then we should put them down and enjoy the analog life before it’s too late.
