I am now updating and moving to the new bizdrivenlife site here.
I will still maintain this site as a mirror site for some days and weeks, but most of my new posts will be at the new site. In the next few days, I will also transfer the www.bizdrivenlife.net so that if you are using this as your marker, you will be redirected there.
If you are using my feedburner RSS to download my posts, which is as follows:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/ReflectionsOfABusiness-drivenLife, then I have redirected it to download from the new site, so you don't need to do anything. However, if you are not downloading anything new, pls. go to my new site, and subscribe to the Feedburner RSS on the upper left corner of the blog.
I hope that by moving my blog into WordPress, I can be more flexible, and it will be easier for you to search, locate the information you want, as well as notice the better organization of the new site.
The same 8 subcategories will still be there, and I have taken also the liberty of transferring some of the top posts the last few weeks there. My selected writings for the last one year is also there.
I am hoping with this new setup, I will be able to more easily communicate with you, and scale even better heights.
As usual, thank you for your support, and your comments are always welcome.

Some Humor ( jokes)
Great humor not only tickle the funny bone, but also delivers a punch line that makes us think about our lives, our relationships and the way we interact.
Here's humor that is a subtle dig on married life.
Knowing the parts for the school play were supposed to be posted today, a father asked his son if he got a part.
The son enthusiastically announced that he'd gotten one. " I play a man who's been married for 20 years."
" That's great, son. Keep up the good work, and before you know it, they'll be giving you a speaking part soon."
In business, sometimes, we have confilcts. While conflicts are inevitable, conflicts not properly managed can be among the biggest drain on motivation, and can result in wasted money and time. Before we spend another time to argue and fight, especially when it involves getting expensive lawyers, let us remember this joke:
Two farmers were fighting over a cow. while one was pulling the head and the other was pulling the tail, the lawyer was seen milking the cow...

Replicate the Problem First! ( on jokes)
Here is something light... If you are from the software industry, you'll appreciate this one ....
An engineer, a manager, and a computer programmer were driving down a steep hill when their brakes suddenly failed. They managed to avoid a serious accident by steering into a grassy bank, and immediately discussed how to fix it.
"We need to organize a committee," said the manager. " That way, through a process of continuous improvement, we can develop a solution."
"That will take too long, " pointed out the engineer, "Let's take apart the brake system, identify the problem and correct it."
"You're both wrong!" interjected the programmer. "We should push the car back up the hill and see if it happens again."

More Business Laughs ( on Jokes)
I like jokes, and believes humor is an essential part in successful business conversations. Thus, I am making sure that while this is a business blog, we don't forget the fun part. Here is my collection for today.
Now that you've made it to the top, what's the best thing about it?" Asked the VP.
After a thoughtpul pause, the new CEO replied, " These days, when I bore people, they think its their fault, not mine. "
The manager has been fussy all the day, and he turned furiously on his hapless secretary, and snarled. " where the hell's my pen?"
"why, behind your ear, Mr. Peters, " she stammered.
"Golddamit Blenda, you know how busy I am, " he howled back. " Which ear?"
Sign in a corporate boardroom: Thank heavens this is a free country where you can do exactly as the government pleases.
A company received a large order from a customer, and wrote a letter, " Sir, we are sorry we cannot fill your order until full payment is made on the last one. "
Next day they got a reply, " WE are sorry to cancel the new order. WE cannot wait that long ... "
The businessman was rather put off when the bum approached him with a request for five dollars to buy a cup of coffee.
"you can buy coffee for sixty cents, " he responded tartly.
" right you are, " conceded the bum cheerfully, " but I like to leave a big tip. "
Here's a joke that is actually food for thought.
The pig complained to the cow saying, " I know you give milk, leather, and beef, but I give pork, pigskin, and even my bristles are used for brushes. Why are you loved so much more?"
" Maybe, " the cow said sweetly, " its because I give while I'm still alive."
a woman was chatting with her friend. " I feel really good today. I started out this morning with an act of unselfish generosity. I gave five dollars to a bum."
" that;s a lot of money. What did your husband said about it?"
"Oh, he thought it was the thing to do. He said 'thanks'".
