“The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”

– Tom Clancy

Need I say more? Don’t expect too much in your life to make much sense – and, of course, that includes your work life. It can be difficult, and unsettling, but sometimes all you can say is “It is what it is.” The only truly important thing for your success, health and happiness is that you make sense to yourself.

We appreciate your trust in us

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

“Please pass on my message to Mr. Sklover that I am one of his biggest fans. Very regular reader of his blog. It has helped me a lot.

I work in IT for around 11 years. Recently I was put into PIP for fraudulent reasons by my boss. Almost 11 years of experience and 8 years in the same company – top performer but boss wanted to vent out his frustration for the EEO complaint that I had raised against one of my co-worker who happens to be a favorite of my boss.

I am having three years more experience than the boss and the longest term in the current project. More folks come and stop by me than my boss and everybody consults me for any work. EEO complaint plus this might be reason why he put me into a PIP.

Prior to EEO – I tried my best to get it resolved this issue with the help of HR. HR are always manager’s friend and in this place – boss is always right. It took good amount of courage for me to stand up and speak up against this discrimination and went to EEO.

Your blog is a strength to so many IT workers in India like me.
Thanks.”

“A near neighbor is better than a distant cousin.”

– Italian Proverb

We all – now and then – need a helping hand, a helpful hint, or even a needed explanation. At work, that is nearly every day, because none of us can get the job done entirely by ourselves. Take a moment each day, in small and simple ways, to initiate, cultivate and nurture your relations with co-workers. Though they are not your family, when you are in greatest need, they may well be your greatest resource.

This quote was sent to us by Christine of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, whose grandfather told her this many years ago. If you would like to submit a proverb, quote or thought, please submit it to us at vanessa@executivelaw.com.

Mother’s Day

“God could not be everywhere and
therefore he invented mothers.”

– Jewish Saying

To every mother, grandmother, and great grand-mother out there, THANKS. Today is Your Day. It’s even named after you. In case anyone hasn’t said it to you yet, THANKS for all you do, all you’ve done, and for the zillions of things you will do tomorrow and the day after that, too . . .

25 Great Excuses to be Out to Attend a Job Interview

Simply put, chances are you will need a good excuse to be out of the office if and when you attend a job interview.

And simple common sense dictates that some “interview excuses” are better than others.

This list has been developed by speaking with our clients of the last 35 years or so, and assembling them in a rational way.

Can’t hurt. Can only help.
