October 16th Bosses Day

We all have a boss in our lives, even if we don’t have a job! Well today is the day we celebrate them and give them their due. There may be times when you don’t like them all that much but then, you don’t have the same responsibilities that they have or the same goals they must attain. The higher you get on the work chain the more that is expected of you. Today was created by Patricia Bays Haroski who honored her boss at State Farm Insurance in Illinois in 1958. She registered it with the Chamber of Commerce making sure the day was recognized. Of course her boss was her father so it wasn’t all that difficult for her to show her affection for her boss.

How to celebrate – Honor your boss (Like them or not) . Try to understand the demands placed on your boss. Try to honestly see yourself as your boss sees you.

April 3rd Don’t Go To Work Unless it’s Fun Day

This should be a great day! Don’t Go To Work Unless it’s Fun Day is a great day to celebrate. Of course, that may be followed by, Don’t Go To Work Because You’ve Been Fired Day! The premise is pretty easy to follow and frankly boss’ at work should make your environment a fun environment because more will actually get done if it is.

And honestly, any job can be made fun for the employees with just a little imagination by the employers. Many employers and boss’ get very grumpy with age. They are tired of what they are doing or they have a lot of headaches they have to deal with over the course of the day.  But the grumpier the boss gets the less employees do, and that is a proven fact.

Life is too short to just work for a pay check. If all it means to you is that you can buy more stuff then you are definitely in the wrong line of work. You can never buy your way out of a bad mood. Hence the old saying, “Money can’t buy you happiness”. But with that in mind, I wondered what some of the better, fun jobs might be.

Ice-Cream-Taster

Like a professional ice cream taster. Now it could get nasty if you are forced to try some new flavor like… broccoli ice cream. But for the most part, any ice cream is going to be good ice cream because the boss wants to sell it to a lot of people. So an ice cream taster probably generally has a fun job. They might get fat though.

So maybe a better job would be a surf board tester! I mean, who wouldn’t have fun sitting on a surf board, in the ocean with your dog at your side!?! Maybe not the job for someone with a fair skin that burns easily, or if there is a hurricane blowing, or if there are sharks about but otherwise… why not!?!

How to celebrate – If you are a boss, make work fun for your employees today. If you are an employee, make work fun for your boss today. Greet everyone you see today with a smile.

October 16th Bosses Day

When arriving at work today remember it is bosses day. That is unless of course you are the boss. And if you are the boss, expect to be showered with lavish gifts and praised for your work, that is if you are a good boss.

In the army the General is the boss. Of course, he or she has a boss too…. the President. Douglas McArthur would have done well to remember this. The plain truth is, even most of our bosses have bosses.

In a school, the principal is the boss. A good principal creates a safe and exciting environment for their students and teachers.

And naturally, the mom is the boss of every family. Some think it’s the father but boy, are they wrong! It’s the mom that makes the household work, or not. They either create a home or just a place where we live. 

Good bosses realize that they have to follow as well as lead, listen as well as talk, and set examples by what they do.

Or they play music and are soap opera stars!

How to celebrate – Remember your boss today! Celebrate Bosses Day with a cake to honor your boss. Remember that most bosses have bosses of their own to answer to.
