Ants OR Dinosaurs



Some facts on Ants & Dinosaurs (cut & paste) LOL!:

1.  Ants - Like all insects, ants have six legs. Each leg has three joints. The legs of the ant are very strong so they can run very quickly. If a man could run as fast for his size as an ant can, he could run as fast as a racehorse. Ants can lift 20 times their own body weight. An ant brain has about 250 000 brain cells. A human brain has 10,000 million so a colony of 40,000 ants has collectively the same size brain as a human.

2.  Dinosaurs - Dinosaurs were reptiles and most dinosaurs hatched from eggs.  The term dinosaur (terrible lizard) was coined by the English anatomist Sir Richard Owen in 1842. No one knows how the dinosaurs became extinct or even if they are extinct, but there are many interesting theories


Good day!  Good day!  Good day!  
ALL IS WELL (I hope)...I ran out of 'How I Met Your Mother' series...God!  I love that sitcom!!! Therefore, I decided to do some blogging this afternoon...Just to keep my rusty brain going...I need to be energetic!  I choose to be energetic and enthusiastic instead of being some lumpy-good-for-nothing-bummer!  As usual...I'll write things that are not in the books...I'll simply write anything that comes across this 'critical-thinking' head of mine...So, here it is...this entry is about THE ANTS & DINOSAURS IN THE WORKPLACE...[one of my favorite chatting topic with my late father...that old chap simply worshiped his job so much... (I miss u ayah)]

OK PEOPLE!  It's all about making choices...You can either be the ANTS or you can be the DINOSAURS at your workplace.  Ants are quick, strong, brainy and cooperative.  Whereas, dinosaurs are untrustworthy (because they're lizards - check out the Al-Quran on why lizards are untrustworthy), ugly, terrible, violent, cruel and ancient!  It's a good thing that dinosaurs are extinct...

So, what's your choice?  Quite recently, while I was driving to work, I listened to my favorite radio channel, IKIMfm.  Some ustaz (Sorry, I can't recall his name & the title of his motivational talk that morning) BUT I remember him talking about 'Making Choices At The Workplace'...bla bla bla...It goes something like this ~ You can choose to be successful or you can choose failure.  You can choose to be highly motivated or lazy instead.  You can choose to be honest or otherwise.  You can choose to be punctual (in meeting deadlines) or procrastinate.  He pointed out so many choices of various aspects in working life.  What attracted me most was this quote "Victory belongs to only those with perseverance"...It's no wonder stories about 'ants' exist in the Al-Quran...Ants persevere indeed! The truth is, the choice is in your own hands...right peeps?
This brings me to another issue at the workplace ~ The issue of CAMP BUILDING!  Well you know...the POSITIVE CAMP Vs the NEGATIVE CAMP.  O please!  Tell me all about it (Eyes rolling up)!  I'm so sick and tired of this!  Day in, day out!  It's the same OLD story... Therefore, I just stick to my principle!  I take pride in what I do.  I do what I'm paid for.  I respect the rules and regulations.  I try my best not to break any rule.  I prefer to be the subservient employee rather than creating headaches to my superior.  I'm not so good at making friends (I really mean, TRUE FRIENDS), so I don't make enemies, etc. etc.  AND I TRY MY BEST TO BE THE ANTS at my workplace :D   (Where are the emoticons??? I need a smiley here!!)

All in all, our workplace isn't the high school...SO PLEEEASE...please wear the right 'thinking hat'.  As for me, my TWENTY years of working experience has taught me to be VERY CAREFUL with LONERS, as well as the ALL-ROUNDERS at my workplace. They are either people with LOW SELF-ESTEEM or 'SELF-RIGHTEOUS plus MANIPULATIVE'. After all these years, I learned that ALL-ROUNDERS are usually bubbly and harmless.  On the other hand, time has taught me to be EXTRA CAREFUL with those 'SELF-RIGHTEOUS-MANIPULATIVE-LONERS' at the workplace BECAUSE they are extremely good at seeking sympathy and once you fall for that, NEXT comes the MANIPULATION and that's definite! Muahahahahahaha! (Evil laugh!) Don't ask me why they're like that because I don't have the answer to that, ahaks!  

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed reading this entry and to all my Business Communication students, I hope u remember what I wrote in this entry once u venture into  the cruel working world.  Don't be the dinosaurs...BE THE ANTS!  Insya Allah, SELAMAT DUNIA AKHIRAT....Adios and happy working!!!
