Endless Circle

Some cultures see existence as an endless circle with no beginning or end. As you near the marker of year’s end, you can still be on this circle of existence, passing through another year. There is a clear difference between a circle and a finite line. How would you look differently at this time if you looked at life as a circle?

What will you continue in 2018? What comes with you from 2017? How will 2018 enrich your 2017 experience?

Wishing you fulfillment and joy as you go around the circle one more time!

Do You Have A Bias?

A bias is a partiality that prevents objective consideration of an issue or situation. Often, biases are unconscious. They can come from direct experience, or vicarious experiences (e.g. experiences of other people, stories, culture).

In the workplace, your biases and those of others can be harmful. It behooves you to be aware of yours and to be able to identify those of others. An example of a workplace bias may be: men (or women) are better leaders. If you or someone you work with has this bias, it’s easy to see the havoc it can cause.

What are your biases? Do you know? If not, give some thought to the perceptions and beliefs you have about the people you work with. Then, come up with actual interactions you have had with them and determine if they confirm your perceptions and beliefs. If they do not, you may have a bias there that is best to be aware of.
