    The One Minute Manager by Kenneth Blanchard, Ph. D. and Spencer Johnson, M.D., seems like a practical simple plan on managing people and there for other areas of one's life, however I must admit I am a little skeptical.

Being in the work force for more than fourteen years I have witnessed many types of mangers. I have worked for hostile managers, calm caring managers and managers who fit s...
  • Important Changes

    Mirrorings Sure, some of us have this great confidence within ourselves about looking great, but that does not hold true for everyone. I understand the pain or disgust, or even disappointment one feels when they look in the mirror and say, "I wish I could change this or that about myself".

    Phantoms I " ve always been on the fringe of the social circle. Much like a donut, the core of my peers seems a hollow, meaningless thing granted both a name and recognition. I prefer the tangible -- I always have. I see my classmates, as little more than bleating phantoms. I hear them; I feel them; I'm never quite sure I see them. Oh, I see their shells, their armor, and their callous hides of lipstick and eye shadow -- but I can't think of a single person I've ever truly laid eyes on. My sense...

Physically, men may be more fortunate; for men do not give birth, do not have to deal with periods and menopause, and do not spend a long time getting prepared each morning.

  • One Problem With Sex
    657 words
    The Ultimate Zen The one problem with something being lost is the feeling one has for the object once it is gone. That felling of need and longing just creates pain.

All emotional pain and suffering could be obliterated if one could think of all things, even people, as just things that come and go. This is not an excuse not to care about anybody. It is just a way not to wreck one's life after something important...

The first thing was that I, after thinking I would never be able to decipher one word of poetry, actually could. I also found that I was able to enjoy it. Another thing was that the narrator (whom I felt was a woman- no man could portray these feelings like a woman) and I had strikingly similar feelings. There happened to be many other amazing findings, but these two were the first and most impo...
