Coaches Can Be…

Dumb Or Smart
c2I’ve had some very good coaches in my life time. You know what a coach is don’t you? To me a coach is a helper, a teacher who helps an individual achieve to their full potential while being a team player and striving to meet the team’s goals.

c3A Coach is not just for the sports world. Coaches do and should exist in all professions! Every supervisor should be a COACH, a teacher, a helper.

Are you afraid to tell someone you love them?
It means so much to heard those words from your loved ones. May we always be ready with words and actions of love for those who mean so much to us.

Quote of the Day

Joke of the Day

Six packets of mothballs, please,” said an old lady to the pharmacist.

“But I sold you six packets yesterday.”

“I know, but my aim’s not very good and I keep missing them.”


There is one Very Serious Law Firm. All staff comes to work at 6am and leaves around 11pm. Suddenly, one guy started his day at 9am.
All the guys exchanged “looks”. And he left at 6pm.  All the guys exchanged “looks”.

Next day is the same story.

And the day after is the same story.

Finally, they come to this rebel to explain the rules.

He listened, kept quiet for a while and said: ”Excuse me guys, I am on vacation.”
