I was told that Blackberries are good for your body and overall health.

I couldn’t agree more.

A hand-held cell phone that doubles as a handy tech tool for on the go people.  Definitely good for you.

And the world roars with HOPE!

What a day, January 20, 2009, the day of the inauguration the world has been waiting for.

Barack Obama

President-elect Barack Obama became the 44th president of the United States of America. But it’s all over the news right now, so unless you are in a coma or do not have access to any form of media, there is no way on earth you do not know that inspiration has been injected into the bloodstream of humans everywhere.

It is an amazing feat for anyone to become the leader of the most powerful country in the world. Even if John McCain had won (thank goodness he didn’t) I would congratulate him for such an achievement, rising into the oval office.

I want to wish President Barack Obama and his family and the rest of the world, good luck. We are going to need it. We have many hard roads and problems ahead but now there is a leader whom people can look up to and believe in change.

Respect

I have a little problem with people who demand respect but do not give it out themselves. Okay okay, it’s not a LITTLE problem it’s a BIG one. I really wish that some people would realize that they are not liked because of their attitude.

Sure, there are people who don’t give two damns about what others think, but give me a break, everyone cares to a certain degree about what others think about them. Even if you don’t care at least try to be respectful of your colleagues so that they will not form unofficial clubs of hatred towards you.

Gaining and losing respect are related but completely different. To earn trust and respect involves doing the same for others first. To lose it, is to be in a manner where one acts as if they are better than everyone else and obviously uses others for their personal gain. (The correct way is to subliminally use others.) And of course not admitting that you are wrong. Oh and thinking that you know it all, when you don’t because you are new to the company or group.

Enough ranting. This is a post about respect. In conclusion, I realize that the world of work is not a friendly environment (duh) but there are many, many stupid people out there and who do not know what and how how office politics works.

Give a little repect, get a little respect.
