Travel – My 18 TDL

Wow,… can’t believe were keeping the steam and streaming the waves of promises. Everyone’s into this, going somewhere is a sure thing on your bucket list for 2018. Read on and dont’ forget to send in your suggestions as am looking for a place, a new one that I’ve never been to….. Study shows that most of the current generation of today are spending much of heir salary to travel, exploration, guided tours and what they brand as bucket list of places. Retirement according to millennials are a thing of the past. Rather than see themselves sitting on the porch and holding a broadsheet every morning as they reach the retirement age they thought that enjoyment found in leisure trips are far more practical and relatively more acceptable to them given their age and thirst for great things the world could offer.

As the world becomes closely reachable because of the social media it opened a new high for tourism and everyone’s taking advantage of it, airline bookings have reach its highs even with gimmicks of offering seat sale at a dime price just to accommodate the influx of passengers. Worlds famous places and even those never been reach before have been turn into attraction as people wanna experience exotic cliffs and caves to fulfill their desire to take selfies and groupies and post it to their social media handles.

Take it from them, join the bandwagon of travelers .. it’s not too late to experience something new, booked that cruise trip, luncheon trip and even moon above dinner date to add spice to your life and pile up that photo-grids, insta-stories and others. Get out of your lonely four corners of workplace. Use those VL’s as trip experience satisfaction is far better than paid up leave. Agree?

Chart your calendar, check those festival schedule of the coming month or weeks and explore a new world which has been there for a very long time yet left unlock by your senses. Travel the life of your happiness !

its a new beginning!

We can’t reach our destination riding the most sophisticated and advance transport system if we don’t have the power to let it run either by petroleum, electricity or whatever propulsion system you have for that sophistication. We are all guilty of failures when we talk f financial issues. Money matters as they say is the easiest topic to discuss if you got a load or plenty of it. More than the required to be spend in your entire life. With so much surplus, you’ll never worry about it and this releases the pressures to grind more than usual. But what if we just got something like , say enough to meet the pay-date and a little deviation will cause collapse to your financial capacity status ? Most us are dreaming of that very elusive financial freedom. Learn the tricks to make a magic that’ll double your money or perhaps create an ideal situation where you can tell yourself that you’re not working anymore for money but the opposite .. money is working for you.

The root of all evil has to be carefully treated. You gotta respect the existence of even the little cents you have in your pocket . If you start believing that all big things must start small .. then you’re at least on the right frame of mind and that’ll somehow teach you how to deal better with money . Spot those extra little source you can make out of your daily deals, who knows you’re scratching the jackpot of your life.

There’s no such thing as too little or too big as it depends on your achievable wants and needs. Money changes everything. – Paquito

When you say healthy this means you’re in the pink of health. All the biological body fluid levels are in a normal level and your vitals are ahem all working.

Check your health, all your senses must be well and duly oriented properly, the hand and sight must be complimentary in sync with what you are doing be it in sports or driving. How do we measure our agility depends on our age. But the sole purpose is to ensure that we are able and very agile to the rigors of challenges ahead of us. Being healthy for the rest of the years is like having a hundred percent attendance in classes without missing any lesson as day progresses. So better be on track of the following to be abreast of what was planned ahead.. here are few important that you need to watch out for ;

Eye , Ear , Nose and Throat

Internal Organs such as Colon , Livers , Kidney , Pancreas and others

Cancer detection and treatment

These are just some of the notable health issues hounding the people of modern times which are attributable to the present lifestyle and food selection available in the market. As the agriculture produce were being modified , it has taken its toll to women’s health particularly with their reproductive health and fatal cancer symptoms traceable to what was being served in food, eaten on a daily basis.

Be on top of your health in order to fulfill that well-laid-plans and give your self a better chance to improve life and with all the possibilities ahead. When you are healthy , you are at your smartest senses and elements; at your strongest capacity to endure the pain of making it to your dream.

Paquito Quote for the Day 42

Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers!

Happy reading and again let me ask you, Do you find this helpful and relevant ? then you are free to share it thru infinity.

How often do you encounter miscues, misinterpretation and miscommunication? Does your day to day challenge forms an integral part of it? If yes, then you’re not alone who have such predicament even if you don’t wish for it. And the good thing about it is that’ll make you see yourself in a better perspective in carrying out yourself for some instances more often than not to get the best out of it.

Without it means you’re not a good person to deal with, the lack of substance in whatever you’re presently dealing about makes you an idle one and not the most sought after guy at that moment in time.

Carry on and be the best that you can be even if it means dropping some peanuts and bits of pieces of your wits just to clear things out at their own expectation.

Don’t forget the cannoli , said one guy. – Paquito

Rebuilding means Strengthening , What You can learn from the CP3 Trade and Its Corporate Significance

Hello to all, fellow bloggers who never ceases to inspire our dear readers who we all valued and love for taking time to read our articles anytime of the day and what is more rewarding was they all come from all corners of the world, from Israel to China and South Africa. Thank you and May the Es-pirit de Corps always emerge and respected.

I’ve just hit the gym and when I went out CP3 is now a Rockets!.. this was one of the million of reactions from an avid fan of the league. From his own point of view, he was caught by surprised but not with the people and team owners and executives involved with the huge change as they’ve been aiming to aggressively rebuild their core team and they want it fast… thus acquisition of CP3 for the Houston Rockets with a lot of players getting the boot to make a wider space for their prize find from the trade market … making them , hmmm according to some league expert as the third best team in the NBA.

We’ve seen this happening many times, players taking their guns through social media and other memes way of letting their opinion be heard and it was clearly logical for the team executives to exercise the legal way of doing the re-alignment process of their turf favorably conducive for their commercial and league athleticism  standards. Corporate worlds has the same scenarios, middle level manager up to the high level management positions are clouted with consistent movement both initiated by the company and it employees by severing ties and bringing their talent to a place or organization they hope will give them the best of both worlds every heart desires.

Company owners have their own fears covering the whole belt of the organization they’ve had put up with their bare hands and dreams…  that employees are the most important resources they have and always assure to it the everybody gets the fair share and no one be left out once a performance bonus are handed out. Lest we must not forget that change is the only permanent thing in this world. Personal rebuilding is therefore a must if we wanted to stay in the league of our own where politics, competition and growth are all but realistic tangibles we need to surpass in order to be marketable as everybody wanted to call it.

You must knew your strengths and where to put or bring it for you to become an extra ordinary effective employee without exception to the rule. Today you might be very effective to the procedural matters of your organization but sooner or later with the never ending robotics and scientific approaches, these becomes immaterial that we found ourselves on the obsolete end of the process making the presence inappropriate.

While the acquisition of new talent versus the seasoned ones are the most common comparison and hard to swallow reality for both fences involve , a close weigh in analysis plays vital when it come to the long term direction of any organizations have in the future. This means that whenever your talent is turned down or not given any consideration it doesn’t mean that you’re not qualified but its just that your talent might be over-valued or undervalue for their needs given their long term plans.

As most of the veteran singers or performers always say, You’re only as good as your last song or performance . Never Stop Rebuilding and Continue Strengthening Yourself – Paquito

You Gotta Have That KD and LeBron DNA to be a Winner in Your Own Chosen World.

We tend to find ourselves contemplating on what really completes us, from work, health, hobbies and even gadgets. There seems to be hard time for us to reach the bottom of satisfaction. Though this is a good sign of yearning for more, looking for more and going after those challenges we knew right from the start or recently notice that we can do better or we got to reach for more, the peak and see for ourselves how sweet or sour it is at the top.

So you’re thinking of quitting your current job that pays more than you’ve expected. The job that gave you a five years and ten year loyalty awards where you’ve learned the strokes of the corporate world, the highs and lows of the work environment. You’ve established great co-worker/employee relations and you are acclimatized with the routine. In short you were bound to another 5 or 10 more years and seeing yourself retire with those bunch of whom you considered as your influence’s and motivational professionals, coach or amigo’s who’ve help you out carve a career that is not easy.

Plan not to fail or you’ll fail along the way for not planning . And most the human resource analyst are doing clash of clans in reference to how they can make a great employee to stay even with the lot of bait outside. Switching jobs or career is not really bad at all. Why ?  Here is a great example.

When the Akron Ohio native jumped fence to the Miami Heat, LeBron James arguably the best ever to play the game have received a lot of curses. The fans gone mad with his decision pointing out the “loyalty issue” that has been the norm prior to his arrival in the league where marquee players retires with the same team it first took them. And for him it is his desire to win championship that will cement his stature in the league. The books shows that he did not only twice but thrice in two difference team organization, the Miami as back-to-back champion and with the Cavaliers last year.

In the recently concluded NBA Finals, the series Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant were once in your the same plight. And it took him ten solid years to make a decision that forever change his life, career and opportunities to the sports he is considered as one of the best. That little courage to follow what your heart desires will always have two sides along the way. First, the ghost of the past will haunt you and keeps you distracted with a lot of if’s and but’s. And there’s only one way or thing to let it stop to haunt and that is to reach the known success by doing the hard work, harder than your previous ones.

Imitating their decisions after a thorough thinking of what it’ll bring on the table are highly regarded as the second reason behind why do people change work and careers and that self redemption through humility is the most notable answers by those who’ve moved their talent elsewhere after a long stay. Pick up your things and follow that big decision you have at the back of your mind and do a Kevin Durant and LeBron James style of decision making and see your crowning glory unfold.

Greatness is not about loyalty, its about finding your place to give your best. – Paquito

The Ten Best Reasons to Date an Architect

A lot of Juliet’s are always on the lookout for their Romeo’s and romantic acquaintances in work places, pubs and restaurant’s or in any part of the world. Varied qualifications and excitement are in the offing once a date is set either through blind date or pre-arrange meetups or just the so called casual ones. Have you ever asked those women what basic qualification they’re looking at,… for a guy or gentlemen aside from being good looking or  with a whopping sex appeal who has the v-shape torso even in plain shirt. But those are just minor details if the woman is to be ask. I don’t like to sound biased but let me give these girls the best benefits and advantages on why they should choose to try to date an Architect . Any suggestions girls?

  1. Architects are artistically romantic in a sense that they put in extra effort to any simple gift they gave out. From colors to sizes and the practical essence that it’ll be useful for your daily routine and it comes with a personalized caricature of you.
  2. They’re trained to stay late at night and even spend sleepless nights during their college years, so if you’re on a GY shift type of work… nothing to worry when it comes to bringing you to your workplace needs him to be awake at past the wee hour of twelve and he’s still smelling like a baby.
  3. You’re searching for a sensible discussion and matured topics? Look away no more as Architects are all genuinely bright and easily converse in any topic a woman wants.. be it politics, current events and even the most trending fashion as they’re always dress not only to impress but also to express professionally romantic.
  4. Architects will never ever let you foot or share the bill once the date is done.. Not only that they’ll never bring you to any so so restaurant but they’ll see to it that you have the best moment with him while listening to soothing musical enthralls of a seasoned pianist of the hotel plush lobby’s.
  5. If you love going places and got a lot in your bucket list, try to give him a chance let him lead you the expedition of places you never been to and of course riding his two-door weekend car… top down.
  6. Do you love going to the exhibits, expositions, furniture launch or collecting interior design mementos? Architects monthly schedule always booked for any of these as they don’t wanna be left behind in terms of ins and outs of products and high end house furnishings, with a glass of wine and cocktails.
  7. Every time you read the Sunday broadsheet it comes along with a glossy special real estate living magazine issues and you can’t help but salivate and dream of seeing these pre-selling, project launching and posh subdivision enclave tripping, you’ll be lucky if the Architect wooing you is involved in any of these as it’ll be a breeze for you to see things… perfectly natural after a warm welcome cold drinks.
  8. Architects love nature and they always make time to have an outdoor activities. At least woman will have time to wear comfy jeans and shirt and forget for a while those women’s dresses and stilettos.
  9. Expect a date to sports event, ball games both indoor and outdoor. A time with your Architect date to be in a casual-sport get-up. They love to jog, go to the gym for workouts and play with you some badminton games and a lot more. Golf is where they’re also good at… so hit the greens and support his championship game.
  10. Before we forget the most romantic part of your date, movies …. yeah women love to see any movie they don’t really want and it’s just that they’re testing the character of any guy they went out in a cold dark places. But with the Architect, it’s far very different. They always read movie reviews before indulging to it and that’s a big difference than having a guy who did seem don’t know which of the blockbuster to watch for as they’re really not that interested of any movie reviews at all… in addition to that, Architect’s know how to secure seats and that is after using their tech prowess.

This is an insight taken from several men from the profession who are already taken by those woman who were able to understand and discover the valuable and humble traits possess by an Architect. Yes, they always argue but it is by far which is which or where is better thing to go after at and not the argument you have in mind., besides… Architect’s always build great relationship within the foundation of trust, love and understanding. Can’t find an Architect date, why not find a friend first and see it for the rest while hoping for the best.

Relationship is not by profession but by the person. – Paquito
