What's a good example of when you discovered that the saying "the right tool for the right job" is true?

I just started working for a vegan restaurant. The 'Cheese' they use is really solid! Made mostly from oils, they expect us to cut it close to the paper thin on a messy blade mandolin for messy, I mean too boring to cut the cheese as fine as they want it to be. There is no deli slicer in sight!

They also want sliced ​​tomato a day, almost paper thin, about 2 boxes of handmade Roma tomatoes ... No tomato slicer in sight! So these two tasks take 1.5 hours instead of 10 minutes.

(A2A) When I put down my IBM typewriter, writing a novel on a PC for the first time. Find, find / replace, highlight, copy, etc. Talk about saving time and effort on rewriting! It was so nice.

That was Word Perfect 5.0. Later came Word. Typewriter given to the Salvation Army.

Yesterday I saw a video from the YouTube channel 'Asian Boss'. It featured two North Korean defectors, a man and a woman, who talked about what life was like in North Korea.

Obviously intrigued, I clicked on it and started looking. The man spoke about his life there before escaping in 2001. At the age of twelve, he saw a man publicly executed for cutting a rope from the mines and trying to sell it in China to earn more money and buy food for his family.

He also spoke about how the government did not give his family electricity except on New Years Day to hear an announcement from

Yesterday I saw a video from the YouTube channel 'Asian Boss'. It featured two North Korean defectors, a man and a woman, who talked about what life was like in North Korea.

Obviously intrigued, I clicked on it and started looking. The man spoke about his life there before escaping in 2001. At the age of twelve, he saw a man publicly executed for cutting a rope from the mines and trying to sell it in China to earn more money and buy food for his family.

He also talked about how the government did not give his family electricity except on New Year's Day to hear an announcement from Kim Jong-il, so it would be completely dark at night if they did not use oil lamps. They barely gave them food, and since their stepfather was an alcoholic, they needed to spend enough money to feed a family of five and buy alcohol for him. As it was dark, he would sometimes drop the bottle and as a result his stepfather would beat him. He didn't resist, saying he was too overwhelmed with guilt for dropping something so valuable.

He and his mother decided to defect after he saw a two-year-old girl starve to death in front of him. That was during the Arduous March that killed approximately 3 million people. He described the girl, saying that moments before she died, flies had already started to accumulate around certain parts of her body. He had escaped to go to China, but left for South Korea once China began rounding up defectors to send them back to North Korea.

The woman's story was slightly different, although they both defected to escape the Arduous March. The North Korean government would provide his family with $ 5 a month. He explained that because of this, they would not be able to buy rice as it cost $ 3, except on his birthday when the NK government would send him 1 kg of rice. 1 kg of rice is only enough to feed one person, so the others would just stand and watch while she ate.

She escaped after 2/3 of the people in her neighborhood starved to death, and she thought there was no reason why it wouldn't be possible for her to be one of them in the near future. She escaped in February, so her escape route, the Tumen River, was completely frozen. There were guards underground to shoot anyone who tried to defect from hiding, so he had to bribe the soldiers not to shoot him before the day he deserted.

He came to China, before going to South Korea. She happily spoke about her experiences in South Korea and how shocked she was when she first arrived.

Now, to answer the question, what surprised me today was his perseverance. This may sound cheesy, but they've both been through a lot, but they still stay lighthearted. Think about it. It's hard to recover from things that have happened in the past, especially if they left you with an emotional or even physical scar. Call the North Koreans naive. Call them narrow minded. But there is no denying his perseverance.

Good memories and nightmares ~

In terms of having an exquisite piece of machinery that you can admire, there is no competition - it's the Royal Oak. Although you will probably never see the machinery, you will only see the housing.

In terms of leaving something for your grandchildren, there is no competition - it's the Royal Oak. Quartz will last, but they will probably stop making batteries at some point.

But in terms of having a reliable watch that you can take anywhere and will tell you the time accurately, it's not a competition either - it's quartz.

Oh, and if you really need a chronograph, you can also get it from a 25-pound quartz watch from the airport duty-free.

And I say this as a watch enthusiast and a proud owner of a number of beautiful watches.

But let's not fool ourselves. The best watch in the world is a cheap quartz thing on the shelf in some airport duty-free store.

It is 11:23 PM. Your eyes hurt. You have looked at a screen for 14 hours. But the moment you hit "Publish", the pain goes away.

It was worth it. You fought, but you came through.

The Superman soundtrack swells in your headphones. You sit and look at your finished masterpiece. Take a deep breath.

Then the slightest smile.

You close your laptop and go to bed. Tired, but satisfied.


It's cold outside. You're nervous. You haven't had a blind date in years. Your date asks for coffee. She is nervous too. You cannot decide.

“I'm going to haaaaaaaaaaave… a cappuccino. No wait. A coffee with milk. Yes, a latte please.

It is 11:23 PM. Your eyes hurt. You have looked at a screen for 14 hours. But the moment you hit "Publish", the pain goes away.

It was worth it. You fought, but you came through.

The Superman soundtrack swells in your headphones. You sit and look at your finished masterpiece. Take a deep breath.

It's cold outside. You're nervous. You haven't had a blind date in years. Your date asks for coffee. She is nervous too. You cannot decide.

“I'm going to haaaaaaaaaaave… a cappuccino. No wait. A coffee with milk. Yes, a latte, please. "

The waiter turns.

"No! Wait! Wait! I'm not sure. What do you think?"

The waiter just rolls his eyes.

“Alright, I got it, I got it. Can I have some tea? What type do you have?

The waiter opens his mouth.

“Actually, you know what, never mind, I'll have coffee too. Thanks!"

"Unbelievable," says the waiter, then storms off.

Having completely forgotten about your date during this stressful fiasco, you almost jump when you turn around to look at her.

"Wow! Oh my God. You're still here. I mean, of course you are. Why wouldn't you?

You try to laugh, but all that comes out is an embarrassed "hehe".

Then she smiles.

A wave of relief overwhelms you. You scratch your head. Suddenly, he starts laughing. Two seconds later, you too.

Maybe this one is off to a good start after all.


It is full of people. The square is so crowded that you can barely move. You are hungry, but your friend wants to take a jump pose photo. This is the seventh attempt.

"Come ooooooon, come on, I'm starving!"

"Just one more please?"

"Penalty fee."

Just when you pull the trigger, a family enters the picture. Mom, dad, grandmother, three children. You lower the camera. Look at these.

They realize that they just photographed your photo. They are ashamed.

Then they smile uncomfortably.

"Wow, I'm sorry," the father yells.

"Do not worry about that. It's okay. Anyway, we are about to have dinner.

"Dinner?"

Dad is coming over. He apologizes again and then shakes his hand. Turns out he has a restaurant two blocks from the plaza and now you're invited.

Your stomach completely growls, but you are happy.

Perhaps there is such a thing as a free lunch.


The most valuable skill a person can have is the ability to smile.

Smile when times are tough. When life gets awkward. When you made a mistake.

Smile at the wonders of life. When something amazing happens. When you have reason to be grateful.

Smile just for you. When you meet a friend. When you greet a stranger.

Smile for no reason. When nothing makes sense When, despite everything, you are still here.

A smile changes everything. Always. Even if no one ever sees it.

It is a mysterious part of the human experience, but a very wonderful one. However, what is most curious to me is that it does not require any talent.

Because smiling is not a skill.

It is a choice.

The glorification of suicide by celebrities like Kangna Ranaut and Chetan Bhagat

The side effect of unlimited internet and social media is the overdose of the public Guilt / Shame game. In our country, it is seen as "Supercool". She found fictitious culprits in Bollywood for SSR's suicide and blamed a clique for traumatizing him, leading to suicide with what she calls "murder." And then he compared his struggle and victimization to that of RSS.

The glorification of suicide by celebrities like Kangna Ranaut and Chetan Bhagat

The side effect of unlimited internet and social media is the overdose of the public Guilt / Shame game. In our country, it is seen as "Supercool". She found fictitious culprits in Bollywood for SSR's suicide and blamed a clique for traumatizing him, leading to suicide with what she calls "murder." And then he compared his struggle and victimization to that of RSS.

This type of public sharing of injustices attracts much more attention and emotional outpouring than most other events on social / digital media. Not only attention, but people also reward people like Kangna Ranaut with approval, sympathy, and "support."

What is this suicidal cry for? She says: I contemplated suicide because my ex-boyfriend sued me and I lost some marks and because Jawed Akhtar told me that you will not receive marriage proposals because you have lost your reputation and because the students in the LSE audience cheered when Karan Johar delivered a message. aspersion!

Is this even a reason, if there can be one, to end one's life?

Frankly, the question is: is she really traumatized or is she just gaining attention, sympathy, and heroism? Or just sailing high on favorable tides? But at what cost, claiming suicide in retaliation for being a victim?

She, of course, is not the only one who is an outsider, there are many who, like her, have made themselves. If she could cut through the ranks and get her taken there as one of the highest ranked actresses, then her heartbreak is wrong. Someone who did not get a decent break due to rampant nepotism may make this point, but after all, he / she would not be listened to, who listens to a loser!

And then Chetan Bhagat, India's most celebrated writer, also jumps on the suicide bandwagon to claim his sympathy rewards. His reason is even more emphatic: "Vidhu Vinod Chopra did not give me credit for my story"!

What a parody, seriously!

He is a type of IIT, IIM who did everything an individual can aspire to achieve, making him a role model for millions and now claiming that he was tempted to commit suicide for this reason. What would you say if a student commits suicide by failing the matriculation exams? His anti-suicide scholarship will surely occur to him.

That also makes him a hypocrite!

They should work like professionals, whatever their narrative about snobbish teaming up and plotting against them is actually a part of the success game, in all fields. In fact, it is everyone's story.

Whoever gets child's play, there is no reward to be grasped without overcoming betrayal and anguish.

It is not acceptable just to create a media sensation, involve your rivals, and win public sympathy by endorsing deplorable values.

  1. Chetan Bhagat accuses Vidhu Vinod Chopra of intimidating him to the point where he contemplated suicide
  2. Kangana Ranaut reveals she was threatened and told she would eventually commit suicide

What is your take on the saying "do what I say, don't do what I do"?

First, my opinion is that it is not. It may be a quote, but a saying is widely prevalent, or it is not worth the name. "Do what I say, not what I do." That is a saying.

As far as the sayings go, all is well for the boss! One because doing what they say is part of the job, and they have no call or position to direct you by saying, otherwise. They have no such voice. Two because obviously it is not their job to do what they say is theirs. It's yours. If they tell you to do this, and then proceed not to do it themselves, that's part of the

As far as the sayings go, all is well for the boss! One because doing what they say is part of the job, and they have no call or position to direct you by saying, otherwise. They have no such voice. Two because obviously it is not their job to do what they say is theirs. It's yours. If they tell you to do this, and then proceed not to do it themselves, that's normal, they left you to do it! They trust you to run the business, not them.

Then. Well said. For the boss. Includes: parent, minor, teacher, only with parental permission. They could have homeschooled you, buddy, it was in their job description if they wanted to, but they felt that this varied array of available colleges hired or provided free as a public service could do a better job, and they've entrusted you to your care. . and say it. Later if you go to higher rooms on your own, teachers and instructors and so on. They've been voluntarily hired to educate you by these, and their input (including the way they're incessantly scrutinizing you) is just part of the business. The work is similar. It is voluntarily placed as part of a time-for-pay agreement. It's a bargain! Especially when you are young.

So for the boss, the saying is fine. For anyone else, it is best to start with the phrase "Do what I say" and bring a solid backup to keep it. Much stronger than what amounts to "Because I'm not going to do it."

At work or in a mentor / protégé, teacher / apprentice, doctor / colleague or any other recognized dynamic with coordinates that include superior / subordinate, whatever I say has weight, and you will be in it under a false insubordinate pretext if you don't does. Take this. You're a sham acting like no one is the boss, when you've signed such an explicit deal. I suggest that you grow up. It is only for the specific business. In no other sense does it imply (or can we infer) that there is superiority somewhere between you. Either of you.

Otherwise, we are equal, pairs, soon to be free. And "do what I say" is then a non sequitur (does not follow; neither should you), regardless of what they do. Yes, even if they do the same, they say. Their free works do not give them a position to make you do the same or the opposite, as they please! No, unless they actually have some prestige that you recognize. Some positions that, after coming of age, you have freely given them (businesses, alliances), which gives them a voice over your actions.

Having multiple job openings to choose from is a luxury, no matter what the job market is like. However, it may not seem that way as you worry about offers, zoom in on the details that don't matter, and feel the pressure to act quickly.

Once you have the offer documents, here are three steps you need to take to organize your thoughts and help you avoid making a regrettable decision.

1. Dig deeper

You have had the opportunity to meet your future boss, possibly even some co-workers. In the hustle and bustle of interviews, it is difficult to be present in the small details of your environment and interaction.

Once you have the offer documents, here are three steps you need to take to organize your thoughts and help you avoid making a regrettable decision.

1. Dig deeper

You have had the opportunity to meet your future boss, possibly even some co-workers. In the hustle and bustle of interviews, it is difficult to be present in the small details of your surroundings and interactions. Now is the time to remember them. Think about the possible red flags you have detected and write them down.

2. Prioritize

Take care to consider your needs and wants both in the short term and in the long term. Then, give each company a score between one and 10 for each of its priorities, with 10 being the best. Once you've done this simple analysis, think about one or two of the most important factors. Highlight them, so that you can pay attention to particularly high or low scores on them.

3. Do a gut check

Trust your instincts before accepting a job offer! If the math points you in the direction of a clear winner based on the numbers, and yet you're dreading making the phone call to accept the offer, pay attention to that sentiment. If you have all the relevant information, but are still stuck, ask yourself what it is.

One of my aunt's parents passed away when my aunt was 4 years old. She is the youngest of 3 siblings. His mother was not educated to support the family. My friend's mother went to school with her oldest daughter to complete her studies. Imagine mother and daughter going to Grade 4/5 together. Those were old days and the school in her village allowed her mother to go to school. My aunt's mother completed her studies and raised her 3 children.

There are so many jobs that fit this saying and it differs from person to person. For some lucky ones, they get a job they love to do in the early stages, while for some, they start out with something different and gradually move on to a job of their choice.

So, I would rephrase this by saying, "Whatever work you do, love it as long as you do it and do your best." This way, there will be no regrets.

One must learn to stay cheerful and pleasant and do whatever job he does to the best of his ability. This attitude will never make the work you do boring and you will do your best.

Because using the right tools for the right job makes work easier, our ancestors figured it out a long time ago! You don't want to use your I-phone to peel an apple or use a pocket knife to text your friend, right?

The right tool is the appropriate device to use for a job like writing documents on that personal computer or laptop that is being used to get the job done. Not a mismatch in certain fields of expertise. That of finding a worker who is fit for the job. The specific career immediately after completion of studies, such as if you are a Nurse, do the job as a nurse and not as a cashier in the Supermarket.
