Winter is here and it is starting to snow. Parts of Ontario are starting to see the first flakes of the season. With significant snow with eastern parts of the province in line to receive 20-30 cm by Monday. Hopefully your drive to work will be easy, knowing that most are working from home.
Even though the government has announced indoor establishments can reopen in most of the province as part of its Stage 3. Cineplex says its employees “aren’t in a position” to open movie theatres in Ontario during the pandemic. Even if opened, would you be comfortable going to the movies?

If something you believe is wrong, would you have the courage to stand up for it? Do you have enough respect for yourself by taking a principled stand to preserve your children’s education by those who are bent on dismantling it?
Have you ever felt like you needed a vacation from your vacation? After a few days or even weeks of relaxation, going back to work is inevitable. No matter what happens that morning, try to ease your yourself back to work.
Have you ever thought to yourself “Wow, I am not too smart.” Some studies say that “stupid” people overestimate their competence, while smart people often question their own intellect.

We all know that life moves at an incredible pace. Balancing work and life can be stressful and at times. Meeting the demands at home while maintaining a career can be difficult. The work day is long and tough, realizing that your personal life is just as demanding as your professional one.
Have you ever thought about training for new career late in your life? Even at 40, you may have at least spent two decades in your career. You have an enormous deal of experience by this point. Problem is, perhaps you don’t particularly like what you’re doing, or maybe you have realized you actually can’t advance any further and you fear a dead end.
Do you feel sometimes you talk too much? When you talk out of nervousness or insecurity, you may reveal something personal, or something crucial to your career. It may result in a negative impact on your credibility. Try to resist the urge to talk just to fill the silence. You may lose your standing ground or reveal vital information someone can use against you.
Do you feel that you are being monitored? Truth is, you should always assume that you are. Although it’s tough to know 100% for certain, companies can track you through the network even without installing anything on your computer. You just have to look for the signs.
