Although humanity has become gentler and more understanding during these Rona times, office politics has seemingly gone in the opposite direction. Maybe it’s the lack of proximity with coworkers or the lessened personal interaction, but teamwork feels like its on a downturn.

Sadly, today was a day of working in order to get work done. Instead of doing productive work, I had to do work that would eventually enable productive work. I completed a few mandatory online training sessions, and I filled out several justifications why I needed “non-standard” apps. Why do I need Pixelmator instead of […]
Well, that was unexpected. At work, I came across a list of recent award recipients and posted the list of names on our company’s SharePoint-based intranet (like I typically do). The reaction to this list of winners though was not expected. Instead of an overall congratulatory spirit for the winners, there were questions about the visibility […]
Since @abaggy is temporarily out of the loop, there’s no one to mancrush on. So instead, I’m turning my attention to someone else I’ll call Q-chi. What’s so great about Q-chi? It’s his confidence. He’s so confident that he leaves his classic iPod on his desk in plain sight even when he’s not around. This […]
What a day at work today. The highlight had to have been a trail of email that went nowhere. You know that cliche on how Americans talk to non-English speaking foreigners?

Just a pic of a sunny American day.
Just wanted to say thanks for a good day yesterday.

Got to follow up some leads about possible new “projects” to join. The biggest decision is whether to stay “home-based” or go back out working at customer sites. Just not sure what to do, but I can’t forget the reason why I came back to the office, to help our organization improve.
Don’t you hate wasting time? At work, we’ve gotten caught up in fighting a fight that’s really the wrong fight. Whatever we do isn’t right because in reality, we’re not fighting the right fight. But at the same time, those picking the fight aren’t telling all involved what the right fight is, you follow? Only […]
Wow, read a great and very pertinent article, “A Practical Guide to Implementing Web 2.0 (aka Social Networking Tools) in Your Organization” which hits very close to home. I’ve been experimenting and pushing the use of social networking tools at work and see lots of what is described in the article. And after attending a […]
A Friday before a long weekend calls for the comfy brown shirt at work. I’ve had this Hilfiger collared shirt for some time now, and it’s like my comfort wardrobe for work. No one’s around anyways…
