How Do I Make Worklife Easier

Dear Cassy,

You're growing up so fast!




 I can seem to see my little self in you. As you struggle towards excellence and continue to chase your dreams, I want you to live by this verse to make your work life easier some day!

"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to dodo it with thy might." (Ecclesiastes 9:10)

This has been a mantra that I chose to remind myself each time I feel that my tasks at work or at home becomes mundane. This fuels my passion for learning and in making things a little better that I first found it!

Do your best in everything that your hand finds you to do! If you become a mom, do all your might to be the best mom to your kids. If you become a wife, do all your might to be the best wife to your husband. Whether you become an Engineer like mommy or an Artist like Daddy, be the best Engineer or Artist that you can be. Whatever you choose to work into, do it with all your might and be a champion of your chosen path! That is the legacy that I want to pass on to you and to your small brothers...LIFE IS SHORT, LIVE YOUR DREAMS AND SHARE YOUR PASSION!

As I go through my everyday life as a mom to the three of you and wife to Daddy while working full time in the office during daytime, I was able to catch some inspiring thoughts I got all over my readings, jot it down in my journal and I now want to share to you. Worklife may look hard at first but this is how I make it easier. 

1. FOCUS ON BEING PRODUCTIVE INSTEAD OF BEING BUSY.
Eat the frog first! When you start your work day, start with the hardest task at hand. Create a list of your top 5 things to do and rank it by priority. Every end of the day, go back to your list and check what you have accomplished. Do the same routine everyday and you'll find yourself more productive and efficient at work. Don't worry about being successful but work towards being significant and success will follow!


2. LEARN SIX SIGMA and PRACTICE 5S!
Remove all kinds of wastes in your workflow. Avoid time wasters such as too many meetings and frequent phone calls. Work in your quality time zone and do things not because it's URGENT but because it's IMPORTANT! Commit yourself to quality and continuous improvement. 

Study shows that we waste approximately 1.5 hours everyday just looking for small things like ballpens, staplers or paper marker. Be 20% more efficient in your workplace by having an impeccably organized working area and practicing 5S!


3. BE A CHAMPION OF TIME MANAGEMENT. 
Why fit in when you're born to stand out? Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
Schedule your day and make every effort to meet it. The things that gets scheduled are the things that gets done! Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job, quit! If you don't have enough time, Stop Watching TV!


4. THE ONLY  WAY TO DO GREAT WORK IS TO LOVE WHAT YOU DO.
Choose work that is in harmony with your values. To love is to choose, but to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to go there. Set your goals and achieve it. Do not let SMALL MINDS convince you that your DREAM is too BIG!

5. DON'T TAKE GOOD HEALTH FOR GRANTED
So what is the use of earning lots of wealth if you lose your own health! Take 30-minute exercise daily. Drink 8 glasses of water and take your daily dose of Vitamins.  They are good stress relievers. Some may be too acidic but some produces wonders by transforming an acid into ALKALINE solution as it gets absorbed in the stomach. As you may be suffering from frequent acid reflux, oftentimes you just have to go with the one that's tried and tested... yung SUBOK NA! WORKLIFE AY EASY WITH FERN C!





6.  THERE IS A TIME FOR WORK AND A TIME FOR LOVE.
Daddy's favorite Walt Disney once said " A man should never neglect his family for business". Choose your life's  mate carefully. From this one decision will come ninety percent of all your happiness or misery. I have found great bliss knowing that every end of a busy day, I take the long drive home with Daddy and find it quite amusing how we never seem to lose interest on each other's stories for years and counting! Make time for love! Take family vacations whether you can afford them or not. The memories will be
priceless.Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, "Gee, if I'd only spent more time at the office."


7. AFTER YOU'VE WORKED HARD TO GET WHAT YOU WANT, TAKE TIME TO ENJOY IT!
Don't postpone JOY! At least once a year, watch the sunrise and go places where you've never been into. You don't stop playing because you're getting old. You get old because you stop playing. Smile, it costs nothing and is beyond price! Don't lose the ability to see the beauty in simple things because that is where you can find contentment.


Just like that of our favorite Kung Fu Panda lesson, there is no "secret ingredient" to make worklife easier, you just have to believe!

Life is short, LIVE YOUR DREAMS and SHARE YOUR PASSION!

Love,
Mommy
