There's More to Life Than Money

It's easy to stress about about little things, especially when those little things are money. My friend just posted a sign with gas prices at nearly $4.20. Ouch! Last week I had to send a check to the IRS and it still has me bummed out and I can still remember the days of adding up each item as I placed it in the grocery cart to make sure that I had enough money when I got to the checkout.
Here's a link to a video to remind us that it's not money that makes us happy; it's how we see the world. Our attitude towards life and what we do is what makes us happy. Not the paycheck at the end of the week. If you are not happy in your job then don't stay there. Good people will always find work. I always tell people who hate their jobs "no judge convicted you to a life sentence of working where you do. If you are unhappy then work someplace else."
Here I go with the lists again, but they really work. Write down everything today that makes you smile. Keep your list handy for when you are having a tough day.

Work is Fun?

Recently I changed positions at work and I found that I had a real difficult time adjusting. I went from being in the field to being split between field time and office time and I was not enjoying it. In fact, although this was a move in the right direction for me, I felt like someone had let the air out of my tires. Instead of waking up on Monday mornings energized and looking forward to the people I would be interacting with I woke up dreading the day and the solitude.
As with most job changes when one person moves it causes a chain effect and many people in our organization moved into new roles at the same time I did. One person reached out looking for advice on how to adapt to his new situation. As usual, what I found in giving him advice is that I wasn't practicing what I preach. I wasn't living up to my own expectations. I was talking the talking, but certainly not walking the walk. Why wasn't I enjoying work? I wasn't making it enjoyable. It's not the new ro…

What To Do With Frozen Lobster Claws

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  We had our celebration a day early and while grocery shopping I came across frozen Lobster Claws.  I bought them thinking I could just Google directions on how to serve them.  No luck.  If you see them, buy them.  They are so yummy and here's how to prepare them.

How to Detect Email Fraud, Phishing Basics

I would have never thought in a million years that I would be a victim to fraud.  I am not overly
careful, but I am always alert (just ask my son who thought he'd get away with charging $212 on my Visa card).  Last Christmas I was the victim of identity theft.  A clerk at a cell phone store took my information and went to an Apple Store and basically took over my wireless account.  Lesson learned - set up your own phone at home.  Do not let the clerk do it for you in the store.

Going through that process I learned, what I thought at the time, was more than I needed to know about fraud, and specifically about phishing.  Until today, when someone thought I would buy in to their scam.

What is phishing?  Phishing is an attempt to obtain information from you by disguising an email to look like a site you trust.  Trust me, they look real.  There are logos, and links, and terms used that make it look legit, but if you look closer you can catch some details.
