Management On Another Level

If you’ve been working long enough in 1 company, they’d decide to promote employees to a more management level. It’s to oversee others and report directly to the boss – normally.

In my case, I’m my own boss at Simpleet Solutions. But this is why I’m in management on a whole other level. Not because I answer to myself, mind you.

I look weird in suits...

Photography was done by a professional friend; Jackie Chan. Seriously, that’s his name. You can find out more about his photography work at his website.

But I’m not talking about corporate management here. I’d like to talk about management of things in life I’m very passionate about. One of them is mainly blogging.

Since 2010 started, I’ve now found myself managing 3 personal blogs. None of which I’d say is seriously considered business oriented. Sure there are ads on 2 of them, but it ain’t big money. For me, at least.

The 1 blog I’m finding it a little challenging to manage daily is the photography blog. I wanted to do Project 365 because not only it’s a good way to constantly update my blog but because it makes sure my DSLR isn’t left to collect dust.

But because it requires me to take a photo a day, sometimes it slips my mind or I end up procrastinating until the next day. Not healthy, from a management’s perspective.

Then again, like Vernon has told me, “it’s a good problem”. 🙂

I Feel Like The Man

I feel really really REALLY good right now. I’ve no idea why but I feel like my blood is pumping a natural flow of adrenaline without the heart raising beat. It feels like I can accomplish all my tasks now, which I have.

It’s like I’ve absorbed a positive slew of energy and it’s constantly flowing out of me as I’m doing anything. When I try to grasp this feeling, there’s only 1 icon which comes to mind.

It just feels so good to be so positive. Now, if I can only digitize and store all this energy into a device which I can retrieve back again.

Ideas anyone? And please, I don’t have Kenny Sia’s USB.

Why do listeners call into radio?

One of the spaced out questions I had earlier was, “why do listeners call into radio stations?” Some of the segments sometimes sound like befrienders.

Like today, Mix.FM on sibling rivalry had 2 sisters who had qualms with one another over a pair of earrings and their late-mother. The person who called in was the Malaysian sister while her sibling is in Australia.

This got me thinking. Why do listeners call into radio stations? Is it because of:

Fame

Fortune

money

Insecurity

Loneliness

Boredom

Well, I’ve personally won movie tickets by SMS-ing in but I’ve never called in before. Even if I did, it would be win something. Yes, sometimes I too am kiasu.

But besides the greed, would you call into a radio station to cry out for help of a sloppy boyfriend you’re too shy to confront and to introduce your parents?
