Life & Philosophy Productivity & Work


For every former, there’s a latter. For every positive, there’s a negative. For every action, there’s a reaction.

Big Spoon or Small Spoon? The former means you take less sips, which comes in handy when taking medicine. The latter means you get to take more sips, which you savor with good soup.

Remember the content dictates the size of the spoon.

Open office or cubicle? The surf-style desk leads employees to wear headphones to block out interruptions. The latter is secluded and quiet, but non-collaborative.

Remember you can still collide at the water cooler.

Soft opening or grand opening? The former creates time to staff up while getting the word out. The latter is a big-bang blitz that sometimes ends up as a pin-drop.

Remember you’re only as good as your food, service, and word of mouth.

Sports or TV? The former keeps you active and healthy because it makes you go outside. The latter leads to virtual gaming/gambling, and a sedentary lifestyle.

Remember you can always walk and do things at the same time.

Our world spins based on the decisions we make (or don’t make) with all the options at hand.
