Good morning. It is going to be a great day today.

We had a simple celebration of Father's Day last week at home. We grilled one big fish that we had bought from the market. Aside from that, we also had some clams. It was gastronomically satisfying. Unfortunately, I forgot to take some pictures. I'll have to remember to do that next time.
As for my gift for husband, he insisted to have it postponed. Indeed, as of now, we'll do well financially when we put other planned expenses aside. So, I gave him another gift that money can't buy. :-)

My husband has been planning on making kitchen cabinet but he keeps on postponing it because of his busy schedule. Besides, his collection of tools is not enough to build the cabinet. He just found that out when he was browsing some DIY website on the internet. He got almost all the tools mentioned on that particular website except for those drill press accessories which he finds really important to be able to finish the job neatly and efficiently. Since father's day is approaching, I just realized that this would be the perfect gift I can give to him and maybe he can no longer find excuses not to build that cabinet.
Prior to the wedding, they were serenaded by ASAP Sessionistas on ABS-CBN. Isn't it just wonderful to see two people who are in love? You know, love is contagious.

Even though most clients have already elected to receive their bills electronically, it is still a good idea for businesses and companies to send printed bills once in a while so they can include flyers and other forms of marketing related to the product or service they are offering. The physical bill that we usually put on the refrigerator wall should serve as a visual reminder of what we need to pay at a certain date.
1. Recognizing Well-Deserved Employees. Employers must never overlook their employees' good performance. A pat in the back often sends a message that their efforts didn't go unnoticed. More importantly, employees will be encouraged to do their best in the job if they see someone getting recognized or promoted for good performance. After all, nobody wants to get stuck or stagnate in their careers, right? Letting employees know that they are providing incentives for outstanding performers is also one way to motivate them to do even more than what is required of them.
2. Find the Time to Talk to Low-Performers Without Embarrassing Them. While having low-performers in the team can be hugely irritating for employers, it does not give them the right to insult or embarrass them in front of their co-employees. It is always important to deal with the situation in a professional manner. Scheduling a meeting to discuss poor performance with the concerned person should be done. It's good to find out what causes the person to slack in his or her job. Discuss the consequence of poor quality work and what needs to be done to improve it.
3. Establish a Friendly Atmosphere. Maintaining a friendly atmosphere in the workplace is one way to make employees look forward to promptly come to work each day. Once in a while, it is also good to organize a team-building activity for them as this can help create or develop that friendly rapport among them. Team-building activities can be in the form of simple coffee sessions, beach outings, outdoor seminars or office tournaments.
The goals of a business or company are often met because, among other things, they have what it takes to succeed – employees with the right drive and motivation to do things right in the workplace.
