Survival Needs

As I think about what I’ve been spending my time on lately, I’m reminded of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. We must take care of those important survival needs before moving on up to higher things. Do you think I’ve been:

a. surviving winter

b. preparing for the upcoming holidays

c. improving training designs at work

d. all of the above

The answer is: d!

For one who is supposedly into planning, I wasn’t all that well prepared when a snowstorm hit. I think exposure to the Just in Time theory is partially to blame. Also the small size of my home which simply does not allow for huge stockpiles of supplies. However, there are certain things it’s good to have plenty of when you’re snowed in: coffee, milk, pet food, and so forth. The snow is melting now and it would be a good idea to give some more thought to this.

I try to keep things fairly simple for the holidays. Still, there are extra things that must be done, and these extra things just take some time. Thankfully, packages have been sent and cards (mostly) mailed now. I can almost relax and enjoy it now.

I’ve been developing a staff blog to communicate information to assist in training new employees and to share opportunities for learning. I think it’s got the potential to be helpful.

I write about goal setting, time management, and other skills for personal development, happiness, and a productive life. My fascination with phonics and the pursuit of literacy is shared at www.phonicspow.com. I enjoy reading books and watching movies based on the screen and page method.
