Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

“A slim settlement is worth more than a fat lawsuit.”

– Yiddish Proverb

Let this lawyer of 36 years tell you the truth: this proverb is quite wise. Or, as one lawyer once defined a lawsuit for me: “A lawsuit is a $200 court filing fee and a dream.” In the employment context, these days, it is so, so often a bad dream, too, as well as a potential end to your career. This blogsite, and my law practice, are both dedicated to the prevention of workplace disputes, and their resolution, without litigation, or its even-worse cousin, arbitration. Instead, we espouse and encourage wise navigation and negotiation. Just like you should do what you can to avoid needing an operating room, you should do all you can to resist entering a court room. They are equally risky and equally dangerous places to be.

This quote was sent to us by Josh B., of New City, New York. Thanks for this wise reminder, Josh. It can’t be emphasized enough.

“No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn.”

– Unknown Author

This time of year – especially in colder zones – we all start to get a bit buggy, impatient waiting any longer for the coming of the spring, bearing its special gifts of warmth, birdsongs and wild flowers. Have faith that this year, like every year before it, spring and its glories are eagerly on their way. At work, consider the spring’s arrival as a metaphor for “better days ahead.” No matter how cold, unwelcoming or chilling your job may seem, nothing lasts forever. Inevitably, it will get better; it always does.

This quote was sent to us by Lemuel C. of Indianola, Mississippi, who reports that springtime in his hometown is now just “two miles away, and headed to the Post Office.” Much obliged to you Lemuel.

Sklover Working Wisdom Feedback Thank You

Lately we have received a lot of wonderful feedback . . . hope you don’t mind our sharing one recent example with you:

Dear Alan:

I have been facing gigantic problems at my workplace for the last 5 years. My employer is very powerful.

Your logic, intelligence and the structure of your thoughts has helped me during this difficult time. I finally defeated them with their own weapons.

You saved me and saved many inhabitants of this country.

I need to gather more courage and perhaps one day, I will share with you the details of this Odyssey.

At the moment, I just want to express my immense gratitude. Thank you for providing a valuable resource for us (the employees).

“Throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.”

– Dale Carnegie

“Hey, Al . . . easier said than done.” Yes, I know that. But, it does bear repeating that, if you follow your “path,” pursue your “light” and go “where your bones tell you to go,” you have the same chance as anyone else to “live in your own heaven.” Give it some thought, even just a little.

This inspirational quote was shared with us by Mohamed, a new Blog Family member from Paso Robles, California. Thank you, Mohamed; great quote!
