Dave’s Diary: Time Management is a Crock

CSI Blog

Have you ever thought about how absurd the phrase “time management” is? I was just thinking about it and, as I am wont to do, was struck by the underlying semantic silliness of the what is to my mind yet another example of the ongoing corporatization of our lives. So, allow me to spend some time talking about time management.

Just Like Bunko: Learning Strengths

CSI Blog

Just like Bunko, I was frustrated with the way things were going in my life. As an undergrad, I spent most of my time in school, group meetings and labs. But with disappointing grades, it appeared that the more I studied, the more likely I was to get a lower mark. My time spent on studying had an inverse relationship with the grade I would receive. I was undoubtedly very disappointed. My problems were not going away.

Just Like Bunko: Following Guidance

Life Experience

When I was younger, I did what everybody – parents, teachers, counsellors – told me to do. Like Johnny Bunko, I was trapped into doing something I didn’t want to do. I focused on the wrong courses and exerted my energy on things that did not inspire or motivate me.

Dave's Diary: Career Advice From My Dad - Don't Be a Lawyer

Dave's Diary

While my dad and I get along really well, we don't talk a whole lot - besides the fact that we live in different cities, I'm pretty sure we share a dislike of small talk.  I think we share a lot in common actually, and understand each other quite well.  So, despite our infrequent chit chats, my dad's been a big influence on a lot of things in my life, not the least of which being my career development.

Bank of North Dakota

ENGAGE

Why am I writing about a bank in North Dakota, USA? Because this bank is a publicly owned bank which is the only established one in the US so far. This seemingly business related post is actually a post on civic engagement. How so? The Bank of North Dakota (BND) has a vision to “be helpful to and assist in the development of… financial institutions… within the State.”

Count to 100: 100 Classrooms in Afghanistan

ENGAGE

During the Taliban regime, by law, girls in Afghanistan were not allowed to go to school and it was punishable by death. Even though this law was lifted, there is very limited access to schools and a proper education.

Dave's Diary: What's Your Story?

Dave's Diary

I and the whole staff at work attended a training last week on a "narrative" method of career counselling led by Mark Franklin, the practice leader of a company called Career Cycles.  It's inspired me to write a bit about narrative therapy in general, especially as it applies to career development.

Dave's Diary: Invisible Influences?

Dave's Diary

There were a lot of messages that I grew up with, whether it be from my parents, peers, or the all-encompassing influence of the media.  One of the ones that sticks with me most to this day, and I'm not sure where it comes from, has to do with self-sacrifice.
