Things You Should Never Say To Your Boss

Published

on

Every you are still stuck at the same level at work and you don’t know why. You have a know your role inside and out. But you still find yourself in the spot when it comes promo time. Well maybe it’s not about the work you are delivering. Maybe it’s what you are saying at work that is holding you back. Checkout some of the things you should never say at work.

1.  “I Guess”

This is the equivalent of giving someone a wimpy handshake and leaves you reeking of uncertainty. If you can’t commit, or don’t understand what is being asked of you, do something about it. Communication is vital to workplace success, and a half-assed response like this will make others question why they’ve hired you.

2. “That’s Not My Job”

A lack of a desire to develop new skills or work outside of your comfort zone is a huge turnoff to your boss and clients. Show a little flexibility and flaunt some of your less obvious talents. There is a time and place for rigidity (I think), but this isn’t it.

3. “The Other Person Doesn’t Have To, Why Should I”

This stopped being a viable excuse when you learned to put on your big boy pants. Control what you can control and don’t waste your energy whining about what others are or aren’t doing.

4. “I Had Nothing To Do With That”

Failure to take ownership of mistakes as well as successes shows a lack of confidence. Own the decisions you make, whether they prove to be good ones or not. Also, don’t jump ship the second you hit an iceberg (we saw how well that worked out, didn’t we?). People want to work with a leader so don’t just abandon them.

5. ” I Don’t Have Time”

Learn to manage your schedule so that even if you don’t have the time to do something, you’re able to find a way to get the task accomplished. News flash the most of the people you work with are tasked out beyond their daily capacity. Those who move up learn how to delicate task with coworkers to save time.

Published

on

Amy Schumer has decided to side with Colin Kaepernick.

Schumer joins the list of entertainers that have turned down the NFL. The actress/comedian announced she will not appear in Super Bowl ads this year as a sign of support for Colin Kaepernick.

“Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise, how are you not complicit?” she wrote in her Instagram post. “[…] I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them.”

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

Los Angeles’ Lakers’ second-year forward Kyle Kuzma has signed a deal with GOAT, the world’s largest marketplace for authentic sneakers, making him the first athlete to partner with a sneaker reselling platform.

“GOAT has inspired me to start collecting more seriously and build my style around sneakers,” said Kyle Kuzma. “People assume that, as an NBA athlete, you can get access to any kind of sneaker you want. When in reality, it’s hard to get the exclusive releases or shoes from the past, and feel confident they’re authentic. GOAT gives me a second chance at not only the limited releases I missed, but also the shoes I wasn’t able to afford growing up.”
“GOAT has always celebrated great athletes,” said Eddy Lu, co-founder and CEO of GOAT. “Kuzma is emblematic of the passion, focus, and determination that reflect what it means to be great. We couldn’t be more proud to have Kuzma represent the GOAT brand, and inspire others both on and off the court.”
Since the NBA removed its restrictions on what color sneakers players can wear on the court.  The deal will allow Kuzma to wear any color combinations of rare kicks.
