In physics, the first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. And it is still true today. But in organizational culture the opposite is true: energy can in fact be created or destroyed. Yes. At every point in the discharge of our daily roles in our workplaces, we are either […]
“My boss is not cooperative, that’s why I’m not giving my best on the job”.
“I don’t have an office yet, so I can’t start the business”.
“My job takes my time, that’s why I haven’t written the book that I have been wanting to”.
“My kids and spouse keeps getting on my way, every time I attempt […]
