On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
A brain tumor had doctors guessing you should have died five years ago, but hard work and luck have reduced it by 50 percent and arrested its progress. Would it be wishful thinking to start long-term planning and getting your life back on track?
How can you encourage someone to make a business out of a hobby they're really good at? More important: should you?
In a world where nobody seems to listen for longer than five seconds, how can you politely have a conversation with people in a way that won’t just lead to temporary change?
Your side hustle is related to your main job. Is it reasonable to leverage your paid time to work on things that benefit you personally?
When your significant other had a traumatic childhood and shares the dark thoughts that haunt them with you, what can you do as a partner to be supportive without turning into a surrogate parent or therapist?
You want to be able to work with anyone, but you have a passive-aggressive and prickly coworker who refuses to engage with you. What can you do to defuse the tension and build a proper work relationship?
Life Pro Tip: If you are under a mandatory shelter-in-place order and feel the need to leave the house, blood donation is a qualified reason to leave. Not only are you getting out of the house and having some human contact, but you are providing society with a much-needed service. Set up an appointment and fill out the questionnaire beforehand. (Obviously don’t do this if you are feeling ill!)
(Anti-)Recommendation of the Week: 100 Humans (It's a fun watch, but filled with junk science and biased politics. Don't go into this expecting anything beyond entertainment and you should be fine.)
