Dear Boss

Don’t get me wrong. I understand being the boss is not easy. I understand that you have to make unpopular decisions and when you do that I respect you for it even if I don’t always agree. I would understand it if you reprimand me because you feel that I do not do my job properly (which would never happen, because I ALWAYS do my job and I’m proud of that).

However, there is one thing I would like you to know. Don’t make demeaning jokes and comments in an attempt to be liked. Your jokes are in bad taste, sometimes sexist, and makes me respect you less. If you feel that you need to connect with me on a more social level, ask about my family or my weekend plans. That would be sufficient.

PS. The staff don’t laugh at you jokes because it’s funny, they laugh because you are the boss.

Kind regard
An employee that really would like to respect her boss, but find it really hard to do so.

About Die reis

So....I really believe that I’m not the only person feeling this way. Like Lucius Annaeus Seneca  put it: "If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable." And that's exactly my problem...I have no idea where I want to be. I’m content in the moment, but is constantly restless about the future. I have too much of a hunger for success and fulfillment to just leave it there, but never in my life have I had a clear picture of where I want to be. Therefore I want to make life about the journey. I want to appreciate life for what it is, and not let the small things pass me by without noticing them. For the "where do I want to be?"...maybe I will find out along the way.
