  1. Turnaround, transform Singapore

It is hard to envision, a completely different Singapore

As we seem to have less, when we could have more

The journey we must undertake, will lead us to new lands

We can save our economy, it is very much in our hands

To do this we must teach, a turnaround philosophy

To students both old and young, and rethink strategy

It is time for us to seize the day, and not wait for government

It is time for us to prepare today, and be truly persistent.

Chorus

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Transform Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it because we are one

Transform Singapore, you can do it because we are one

Business schools need to look at, exactly what they teach

Business schools need to take note of, exactly what they preach

For if we are to survive and grow, through this recession

Then we have to look again, and stop suffering and regression

If we wait for governments, to come and bail us out

We will all be truly lost, and no one will hear us shout

To stay competitive we have to do, what must be done

To stay together we must join together, and become one

Chorus

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Transform Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it because we are one

Transform Singapore, you can do it because we are one

Restructuring our corporate world, may seem unthinkable

Restructuring our corporate elite, may seem incredible

But do it we can and do it we must, if we are to stay alive

We are capable of anything, and we will do it to survive

These concepts are nothing new, but are rarely done

These concepts are the one thing, that will make us one

They must be taught to every student, across our fair land

They must be learnt by every CEO, with a steady hand.

Chorus

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Transform Singapore, you can do it as we are with you

Turnaround Singapore, you can do it because we are one

Transform Singapore, you can do it because we are one

  1. Time to change the way we think (Turnaround Singapore)

Singapore has been dynamic and resourceful, and brilliant in the past

Companies have made money and climbed to the top of the mast

But now in the present, the winds of change are blowing

The money that was so plentiful, is now no longer flowing

But now we have to learn a lesson, and we have to learn it fast

The old way we made money and grew, just will not last

Western world and corporate companies are looking inwards

The markets we all shared in are no longer looking forwards

Chorus

It is time to change the way we think

Now that we are on the brink

It is time to change the way we are

Only like this will Singapore go far

We have to let go of the old ways, traditions, and views

We have to embrace the winds of change, a fresh and a new

If we stay locked into the past, our future will wound us,

If we do not alter our outlook, we will fade without a fuss

We have to accept that graduates need to be better, and smarter

Entrepreneurs should lead the way for a better, new starter

To invent new ideas about business, profits and success,

So our economy will always be plentiful, honest, and impress

Chorus

It is time to change the way we think

Now that we are on the brink

It is time to change the way we are

Only like this will we go far

It is not just you and me that have to play our part

Our government has to re-think if we are going to last

Only with wisdom and knowledge will we grow

And move forwards with zest, energy and go

If we can work together as a team, and work as one unit

Then we can all benefit from our skills that we bring to it

This way we can take on global markets, and help all and each other

To survive this down turn and recession, and benefit as brothers.

Chorus

It is time to change the way we think

Now that we are on the brink

It is time to change the way we are

Only like this will we go far

  1. Corporate Wellness

Just listen to our experts, because they are the best

That will help your company perform, as it should be.

And prospects of liquidation are everywhere

Chorus

Corporate transformation, is the only way

Corporate transformation, will save the day

We have respected methods, from an expert hand

Tycoons and academics, have all agreed

That the three phase plan, is the way to succeed,

If you use our know how and strategies, it will all make sense,

And your company will carry on, and profit will not run dry

Your shareholders will be so happy, they’ll start to cry

Don’t be afraid of restructure, it’s part of the game,

Don’t be lacklustre, when it comes to change,

Don’t blink or hesitate, when you have the chance,

To revitalise or innovate, as it gives a positive stance.

Chorus

Corporate transformation, is the only way

Corporate transformation, will save the day

Tried and tested means, that pave the way

So if you’re flying high, we’ll keep you in the sky

  1. The American Odyssey

The greed of the Wall Street

Brought the economy down,

Down ,down and out it fell,

Crashing to the ground,

Like a castle made

From a pack of cards.

Fuelled by

The greed of the lenders,

Who gave out ‘golden deals’

The greed of the borrowers

To ‘own’ and ‘invest’

Homes for homebuyers

Who lived beyond their dreams.

Dreams were provided wings,

Truth and reality forsaken,

The bubble grew….and grew,

And eventually burst

….. shattering all dreams!!

Investors… a shattered economy

Dreams shown by Fannie Mae

Freddie Mac and Lehman,

All too suddenly.. became nightmares

Boomeranged and disappeared

Into oblivion.

Leaving behind…just destruction

A limping , shattered economy.

Was Wall street a villain or

Was it Inherently Stupid

Greedy and Capitalistic?

Whatever it was,

It brought the World

To a great standstill!!

Why do we forget

The simplest lessons are

Always the hardest to learn:

All that glitters the most,

Does not have to be gold.

What sounds too good to be true,

May not be true at all.

Then came Obama,

A new kind of American,

Ready for the problems,

With his feet firmly on the ground!

He promised to clean his feet,

To toil and sweep away the dirt,

And work hard to bring back,

Glory to America,

Once again!

  1. FEAR

Overwhelming fear,

Of dark shadows

looming ahead.

Fear,

Of an empty future,

where all hope  is dead.

Fear,

That brings a lump

to my throat,

Its icy hand

makes me a wreck.

  1. Failure

Failure is

a fearful emotion

Of losing all –

friends, relationships,

stability, money.

An utter hopelessness

as you watch your

Hopes and dreams all

suddenly  vanish.

But , You must

never , ever  forget

Failure is but a

promise of future success.

Let your setbacks

teach you the lessons

untaught before.

Let the experience

be your guide.

For a future

full of strength,

Helping you to ultimately,

reach for the stars.

  1. HOPE

Reach out

and never give up hope.

losing hope

is like losing yourself.

Every one is there,

all your very own.

just lift your hand,

and all will be there.

Your own ,friends& family

who will cushion

your life for you.

Never fear;

Your support system

is intact.

waiting to help you

with arms extended.

  1. Turnaround Yourself

A financial tsunami has come our way,

That threatens to do us no good,

Destroying companies and washing our jobs away,

Leaving a mess where a factory once stood.

Talents are not enough to survive,

And save the many corporate lives

It is how we turnaround ourselves,

So that we can help others to energise themselves

Whatever our difficult business line,

Whatever our financial pain,

There will be economic sunshine,

After the tsunami rain.

Perhaps, we may fall,

Perhaps, we may not last,

But God is always for all,

To help us through this bust

Resuscitation: Internet marketing, Merger and acquisition, Public listingTime to find a new way(Ultimate internet strategy)Buying a companyPublic listingClosing the gate.(Ultimate internet strategy)

Hail the Internet
Beware of the merger
Internet marketing

Time to find a new way(Ultimate internet strategy)

It is hard to envision, working from home
It is hard to enlighten, people that feel alone
It’s time for change, time to tell the people
Time to think fresh, time to stop being feeble

There are opportunities, to make money from home
There are ways to market, our companies that set the tone
The world is in turmoil, and this has affected our economy
The world is in disarray, and put our future in jeopardy

Chorus
It’s time to tell the message, to all our pupils
It’s time to spread the message, like the disciples
Time to teach the new ways, that will secure our future
Time to teach the new methods, to the young and mature

Affiliate programs and quality, should be taught in our schools
Killer sales copy and marketing, will stop us looking like fools
Sincere passion and domains, will help us avoid economic pain,
With no work or money, sooner or later you will go insane,

You need to be patient and persistent, you must never give in
Through the bad times and hard times, to quit would be a sin
It’s just a question of sticking with it, and trying your best
To help you persevere and get through it, think of it as test

Chorus
It’s time to tell the message, to all our pupils
It’s time to spread the message, like the disciples
Time to teach the new ways, that will secure our future
Time to teach the new methods, to the young and mature

University students should be well versed, in the ways of the web,
University students should know all there is, in the ways to get ahead,
For the good times will only roll, if our children know all there is,
About using the web for working from home, and doing the biz,

The old business methods are not as good, as they used to be,
The old business ways have to move over, it is plain to see,
Overheads such as rental costs, do not need to be considered,
If the internet home market, is used and properly configured,

Chorus
It’s time to tell the message, to all our pupils
It’s time to spread the message, like the disciples
Time to teach the new ways, that will secure our future
Time to teach the new methods, to the young and mature
Buying a company

Companies are like people, and they can get sick
Making companies better, now there’s a trick
It is possible if you follow the turnaround plan
Then the company will succeed throughout the land

It is not as hard as you think to bring some hope
It is not that hard to stop sliding down the slope
Your staff maybe demorilised and looking to leave
You can change all this with a few ticks up your sleeve

Chorus
It takes patience and care, to run a business
Building it from scratch, is not happiness
So maybe buy one that is, up and running
Make it well, and see the profits start growing

Buying a company is like a buying goods to sell
To get the best deal you must buy one that’s unwell
Then work hard to restructure it to make it pay
Rework it and nurse it is the corporate turnaround way

Profits can change by merging two companies
Profits can grow by linking to subsidiaries
Follow this practice to heal your sick brand
Then things will fly like a hard rock band

Chorus
It takes patience and care, to run a business
Building it from scratch, is not happiness
So maybe buy one that is, up and running
Make it well, and see the profits start growing

Acquiring companies, to add them to your own
Helps businesses grow, and stop you feeling alone
If you follow my ways, you’ll know which ones to acquire
If you follow my ways, you’ll know which ones to admire

Once your company is doing what it should
Profits flowing, shareholders happy, staff are good
Then perhaps it is the time to sell the whole thing
You’ll regain your investment and bank balance go zing!

Chorus
It takes patience and care, to run a business
Building it from scratch, is not happiness
So maybe buy one that is, up and running
Make it well, and see the profits start growing

Public listing

In this age of corporate image and responsibility
It is important to promote values and transparency
If people can see what is happening and all is right
Then everyone feels good and sleeps well at night

Good management and a good strategy
Leads to a good system and a good policy
Of keeping books straight and compliancy
And all is better for the corporate company

Chorus
If you list your company publicly
Build in compliance and transparency
Will make things better for the company
Will build trust and good strategy

Staff will feel better if they all know
That company procedures all show
That the company is under good governance
And see the company is run with providence

Companies that do not try to comply
Will find it hard to explain and deny
That they have been irresponsible
And actions have not been reprehensible

Chorus
If you list your company publicly
Build in compliance and transparency
Will make things better for the company
Will build trust and good strategy

People prefer dealing with a listed brand
As it carries a better reputation and a trusted hand
The trick is to offer the company to everyone
Where they can buy a piece when all said and done

Never forget the company belongs to them
Bad governance is an easy message to send
So make sure that all the policies are in order
Or your company may perish, through disorder

Chorus
If you list your company publicly
Build in compliance and transparency
Will make things better for the company
Will build trust and good strategy
Closing the gate.(Ultimate internet strategy)

Shout it from the roof tops, shout it from the schools
That you have to use the web, or you’ll be a fool
There is no way forward, other than using our brains
There is only stagnation, and nasty, horrible pain

The world is travelling, on a bumpy, economic slide
The world is unravelling, don’t get lost on the ride
Tell the students in universities, and big  business owners
We have to utilise the web, because there are no money donors

The waves are crashing, and breaking against the shore,
You do not seem convinced, let me tell you some more,
The web has influence and power, like the force in Star Wars
The web can give you riches, just don’t get drunk in bars

For you are wasting your time, trying to think like the old days
You need to restructure your lines, and think into ways that pay
New ways of marketing, will get your message heard,
Don’t be fooled by security, don’t get lost with the herd

You’re better than you think you are, you’re better than the pack
But you can’t get lazy or crazy, you have to pick up the slack
The world waits for no man, so get killer copy writing,
The world waits for no woman, and this is where it gets exciting

Credibility is everything, targeting traffic the ideal
Professional websites and passion, will keep things real
Making money this way, will pull us out of  this recession
Making money like this, will stop us reverting in regression

So teach this to the students, teach this to all the kids
That by using these methods, will stop us hitting the skids
New ways of working have to be respected, and learned,
The new ways of working, will stop us getting burned.

So get a good quality product, and sell it to the masses,
Before we’re out of a job, and the stock market crashes,
If we act now before its too late, we can avoid a fate
Where we have no work, as someone has closed the gate.

Hail the Internet

The Great Depression was a terrible time
Jobs and people, fell into the grime
Now we’re facing something similar
With financial uncertainty and profits irregular

But we have a new ace, up our sleeve
If we save our jobs then we don’t have to grieve
I know you’re thinking there’s no safe bets
But join with me and all hail the internet.

Online auctions, and clickdot strategy
Is the best way to shout me me me
As it is hard to be number one
In a downturn, with nowhere to run

It is time to maximise marketing
To capture customers, and to do your thing
The world of marketing, you will never forget
If you join with me and all hail the internet

Now is the time, to get on the right  track
Blogging and testimonials, will keep you off the rack
There is no choice, but to have a voice
Facebook and My Space, is your chance to make noise

Let’s not pretend this is going to be easy
Lets not pretend things will not be queasy
And you’re right not to assume there is no safe bets
But you stand a fighting chance if you hail the internet.

Beware of the merger

It is hard when you’re a CEO
Stocks are down, where to go
Pressure upon you from every side
Very easy to let things slide

The idea comes to merge or purchase
Another company that has surfaced
The intention is well and good
But things can easily not go as they should

Chorus
Beware of the merger when you do it
May not fit if you don’t think through it
Plenty of places where professionals clash
It’s like a marriage, but more inclined to crash

Some CEO’s are full of themselves and ego
Acquisitions mean more strings to their bow
This affects their judgement and causes grief
And both companies disappear like a thief

Slow progression is often the best
Build up slowly to sustain the rest
Some CEO’s want it all right now
Then they find they lose it all somehow

Chorus
Beware of the merger when you do it
May not fit if you don’t think through it
Plenty of places where professionals clash
It’s like a marriage, but more inclined to crash

So if you’re merging look at everything
If anything is missed it may not dance and sing
Your merger or acquisition has to gel
Otherwise, you will be in hell

So if your thinking of taking the risk
Look at how the companies will fit
Try not to be pressured by other guys
As its your failure if you do not know your buys

Chorus
Beware of the merger when you do it
May not fit if you don’t think through it
Plenty of places where professionals clash
It’s like a marriage, but more inclined to crash
Internet marketing

In this crazy mixed up world, we find it hard to get our message out
No one hears our cries, our pleas, no matter how loud we shout.
But there is a solution, and it’s simple and clear
Listen to my words, for they’re logical, crisp, and for your ear

Internet marketing will stand you out from the crowd
Will bring people your way, so you can say to them proud
Our products and services are here for you now
If you look over here, you’ll see something somehow,

Armed with link baiting, Google, and podcasts
The customers will be climbing the highest masts
Just to see your name, your brand, your niche market thing
And profits, well they’re just keep flying in,

And these are just some of the tricks of the trade
SEO, blogging, and list management, are all tailor made
To bring you internet sales, respect, and traffic
Not to use internet marketing, for your company, that would be tragic.

Jesus, the greatest turnaround expert
Turbulent times need inspired leaders.

It is easy to rule and make important decisions
When the profits are good and do not need incisions
It is easy to rule when good times are rocking
And criticisms of your style are not knocking

The times though have turned they are no longer good
The times have got rough, and profits are not as they should
The time for change management has arrived
The time for change management is not contrived

Chorus
Turbulent times call for leaders and inspiring people
Turbulent times are being shouted from the steeples
The world has changed and we must all stand as one
And leaders become heroes, and do what must be done

Some people are born to lead others to follow
But we all have a role and all want to wallow
In good times and a good world of prosperity
Which is peaceful and for all to love and see

Leaders such as President Obhama are having a hard time
Leaders such as Benake are having to relearn their lines
For they recognise the need for change management
They recognise the old ways are just entanglement

Chorus
Turbulent times call for leaders and inspiring people
Turbulent times are being shouted from the steeples
The world has changed and we must all stand as one
And leaders become heroes, and do what must be done

Thinking and planning is the only way to succeed
In addressing the problems, addressing world need
If we look at things differently then we have the idea
If we look at things studiously, then answers are clear

Leaders everywhere face an economic crisis
Leaders everywhere face much economic unrest
But the good ones know the answers are in demand
The clever ones have them now, and are saving the land

Chorus
Turbulent times call for leaders and inspiring people
Turbulent times are being shouted from the steeples
The world has changed and we must all stand as one
And leaders become heroes, and do what must be done
The just will prosper, the guilty will fall

It is tempting in these times, to take the easy way
It is tempting in these times, to make it any way
You may feel it tempting, to make it unfairly
You may feel it tempting, to make it unjustly

The recession has hit us hard, and we’re all in fright
The recession has hit us fast, and we can’t put it right
But turning to the bad ways, where we just take all the time
Will come back to haunt us, and we will pay for our crime

Chorus
Only with courage, and only with strength
Will we save ourselves, and save our breath
We must use our goodness, and follow the bible
We will fail if we do not, as we are liable
For everything our company is and its actions
So ensure your organization is on board to avoid litigations

We all have doubts and concerns, and lack self belief
But we must stand firm, be strong, and not act like a thief
The good book is full of inspiration, and imagination
The good book is our guide, our hope and companion

If you are ever in doubt, then read a few passages
If you are ever uncertain, then learn a few scriptures
If you are thinking that by doing something wrong
Is the way out of recession, you are singing the wrong-song

Chorus
Only with courage,  and only with strength
Will we save ourselves, and save our breath
We must use our goodness, and follow the bible
We will fail if we do not, as we are liable
For everything our company is and its actions
So enusre your organization is on board to avoid litigations

There are so many examples of how to do things right
What gives you fast gains will come and haunt you at night
And just when you think you are free and home and dry
Then you will be discovered, and everyone will know you lie

The profits that you think you can get through dishonesty
Will disappear really fast, once all the people can see
You will have damaged reputations, and be deprived of hope
So act honourably and properly, and you will not slide down the slope

Chorus
Only with courage,  and only with strength
Will we save ourselves, and save our breath
We must use our goodness, and follow the bible
We will fail if we do not, as we are liable
For everything our company is and its actions
So ensure your organization is on board to avoid litigations

Change Management Leadership – Biblical Perspective…

The world has come a full circle
We’ve begun a new economic cycle
The sky is stormy and the seas rough
The going is no longer easy but tough

The time to change is upon us
The time to rearrange is a must
How can you know what must we do
It is easier than you think, it is inside of you

Chorus
The good book has been written and shows us how
The good book is needed, needed right now
So learn your scriptures and apply them to your firm
Only like this will we ever prosper and start to learn

For the three phase plan is the way out
Have faith in the plan and have no doubt
For surgery, resuscitation, and nursing
Will make companies rise and sing

King David and Joshua, shows us how surgery
Transformed kingdoms and did what was necessary
To make the world as they wanted it
To make the world as they believed in it

Chorus
The good book has been written and shows us how
The good book is needed, needed right now
So learn your scriptures and apply them to your firm
Only like this will we ever begin and start to learn

King Solomon and Apostle Paul with their diplomatic ways
Shows us that this can be the way that pays
As markets enlarge and resuscitate
Brings a better world and a brighter fate

Nursing brings us hope and much inspiration
Moses and Abrahams spawned many imitations
Great leaders have benefited all of humanity
Great leaders have inspired great humility

Chorus
The good book has been written and shows us how
The good book is needed, needed right now
So learn your scriptures and apply them to your firm
Only like this will we ever begin and start to learn

Jesus Christ is the ultimate change manger
Unafraid to challenge despite the danger
He used the three phase plan to resurrect
Important values and beliefs, to guide intellect

He used surgery to get inside, get to the core
Of the soul of the world and resuscitated it pure
His nursing techniques touched many man and heart
And when his end came, Christianity did start

Bible –  the  corporate turnaround book

The dawn is eclipsed by the night
And corporations can’t seem to do right
To regain the profits that they’ve lost
To energise the brands we love the most

But there is a light that shines to guide
Through troubled times, with arms open wide
For the Bible has the lessons and the key
To guide your company to recovery

The lessons may seem unclear and hazy
But armed with faith, action and not being lazy
Can turn your corporation towards the light
And success, and profits will be in your sights

For the company is not a machine
Full of cogs, gears, and gasoline
But a living organism, that requires care
And a firm, healing hand, and the spirit to dare

With the Bible and a moral stance
You will avoid the devil’s dance
And the pitfalls of greed and bankruptcy
And with good timing will promote harmony

Office mania general

The key to survive in the office environment
Is not to thrash about with a blunt instrument
But to keep a calm head, and deal with all things
Just remember, some will be good, or bad, or make you sing

The world is full of different people, but all have a goal
The world is full of different people, with a soul
It is up to you to choose the right path
It is up to you to avoid, being left on a raft

With books, and the guides, the words are all around you
There are friends, there are foes, but what’s inside you
Will guide you when things are looking a bit bleak
And with faith, and firmness, your targets you will meet.

The office seems like a minefield, you have to watch every step
But there is plenty to help you, guide where you tread
The rules are a plenty, they are there to prevent
You being overlooked, or blocking that promotion event

All that matters, is your desire to achieve
All that matters, is your faith and belief
As you can face any challenge, with these qualities
With your head focused, on what everyone needs

So take heart my friend, as everything is in your hand
Your career is going, to light up the land
With every decision, every emotion you will feel
And you’re be more alive, and your soul fulfilled

So don’t loose the vision or the dream
Don’t loose your head, when you want to scream
The corporate world is demanding, that we all know
But you are better than mania, on your marks, get set, go.

Office mania, management

Being the boss, is like walking a tight rope
Being in control, is about striking the right note
You can read all the books, read every word
On techniques, research, and then listen to all you’ve heard

But to make the right decision, at the crucial time
You have to throw away the books, and go with your spine
Only this way, can you make it all buzz
And get out of a hole, and get through the fuzz

If your boss is a madman, madwoman, or both
Don’t get frustrated, and go for the throat
Just get to know them, and get to know their ways
As this is the best way to get on, and get a pay raise.

This may not seem true, or be the best course,
But this method is the best way, to ride the horse
Of all that happens, in a very busy company
Especially, if you’re the one striving to make destiny

So don’t go with the books all of the time
But listen to that voice, that speaks in your mind
As it’s another a sense, like hearing or seeing
And that can help you and your company, achieve well being

Never be hasty, in judging the boss
Never be dismissive, as it will be your loss
Your pressures are different, always beware
So no charging in, tread carefully, take care.

Take the time needed, to get to know ways
Of how your boss works, as this way will pay
Learning the moods, the good, the bad,
Will only help you, feel happy and not sad.

What we can learn from the animals about office politics

If we look at our offices, and their political state
We can see lots of places, where we can seal our fate
Of losing out to that better dressed, better connected colleague
Who steals ideas and recognition, and plays in a different league

But if we look at the monkeys, who all work together
To bring in food for every one of them, to make them feel better
Here, they have a good idea, as they all profit well
From working for each other, no need to hard sell

The dogs and the cats, that we all grew up with
Made us happy through affection, and love they did give
They become another mouth to feed, but they were part of the family
But on them we need, to give them the best for prosperity

The wild dogs of this world, have the right idea
When the lion has finished its meals, they suddenly appear
They don’t have to hunt for food, no it’s not a necessity
As they’ve learned to make the most of, each opportunity

When we look at these animals, why do we call them dumb?
They’ve been showing us the way, almost from day one
They make the most of their skills, and they’re personalities
To eat, gain love, and survive in the reality

Of a dog eat dog world, but with a fairness at heart
We too can learn from the beasts  from the start
Have shown that with a little, genius and integrity
That we too can profit, and achieve prosperity

Surviving office politics

Whether you are in demand, or on the bottom rung
Whether you are in command, or having no fun
You have to understand, that there are certain tricks
To surviving the world, of office politics

It is not very easy, when everything seems so wrong
It gets harder and harder, to do dance to the song
When you know you are better, than the guy above
He only has the job, because his hand fits the CEO’s glove

It can be hard to stay focused, when you are being put down
It can be hard to work hard, when your face is on the ground
But there are lessons to learn, that will help you survive
In the mad world of politics, play the game right and it will keep you alive

Don’t be too hasty, to muscle in on the action
Don’t be too pushy, or you may just be a faction
And easily lost, or pushed out the door
You’ll end up on your ass, sitting alone on the floor

Office mania, Human Resource

Don’t get frustrated, at the guy who takes the credit
Don’t get frustrated, but just don’t forget it,
But write it all down, sticking to fact,
Then go to HR, keep calm, and speak with tact

About all that is happening, about this show stealing person
That claims your work is his, and he’s the one for promotion
Tell them about the hours, days and the weeks
You toiled, and strived for that deadline you had to keep

For otherwise, your efforts will all be in vain
And the other guy, will be praised, promoted, and that will be such a pain
So don’t be disheartened, or walk away in a mood
Just document the facts, and tell HR all the groove

It may seem a strange way, to protect yourself
But it is the only way, not to be left on the shelf
The office can be a rough and tough place
It is easy to lose heart, as well as face

But keep a clear head, and things will be fine
Just write things down, constantly, all the time
Remember the other guys is as ambitious as you
And will use your hard work, and maybe his to

To make himself, heard, to get himself seen
So don’t feel bad, or feel that you are mean
To make sure, that you get the credit you deserve
And to make sure those fastballs don’t curve

10. How to play politics in the concrete jungle without being played out

Your world is your work, and your work is your life
The politics of the office, well they can cut like a knife
There doesn’t seem to be anywhere to go for advice
But the animal world, can show direction, and help make it nice

Though it is a game of savage instinct,
Survival of the fittest, and lunch not on a stick
The animals of the land, can show us the way
How to behave and do business, for each new day

Their system of politics has been working so long
There is no way in the world that they can be getting it wrong
Our system is restricted by underhand greed
That blinds us to the real things, that we need

We fool ourselves into thinking, that we’re doing the right thing
We tell ourselves it’s just businesses, and everything will be zing
Behaving like this, enemies we will make
This will come back to haunt us, as revenge they will take

To survive we need help, at least once in a while
So why not try the rat race, animal style?
For the food chain is for every beast in the land
And not just the biggest, or the fiercest bunch,  do you understand?

Rarely does instinction come from their political ways
And rarely do they not have their own ways to survive, everyday
It is simply a question of doing things right
To avoid the pitfalls that come into our sight

Oh! you must
Because now you have a guide!

Golden Harvest

Jesus saw a dying world,
Sick, very sick
Crying for restoration
He was a great healer
Sent unto the earth,
To see, teach and heal,
The hurt of the poor.
With clarity of vision,
He freed from self made prison,
By bringing changes
To the hearts of all.
Ethics were now different,
from ever before.

Followers thronged Him,
Wanting to believe,
Wanting to learn,
Of a better , healthier way.
He taught compassion,
he taught us mercy and care,
He advised to serve others
In adversity to never turn a hair.

True  rewards
Are awarded
To those who watch and wait
That too, without any haste.
Rewards are not for working
Towards the goal,
But for staying for the harvest…of Gold.

Jesus, the greatest turnaround expert

Which are difficult to overcome

And treading it is no fun

And motivation is lost
When darkness surrounds you
And you feel that all is lost

The all in one expert
The greatest turnaround specialist
Through ages come
Use His teachings to elevate
And motivate at least some.

Let Jesus be the guide
For problems that you hide
Just abide by the rules
And follow Him in an even stride.
Find the inner strength,
And face up to challenges.
Never ever fear,
The Master,
Is  always here,
Right besides you
Holding your hand
Ready to guide you!.
So, Now! Seek out Jesus,
Jesus, The only expert
The greatest turnaround specialist
Through ages come
Use His teachings to elevate
Escalate and get the power
To differentiate, and motivate
You, my friend
Into the correct trend.

    Can I simply say what a relief to search out somebody who truly knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You positively know the right way to bring a difficulty to light and make it important. More individuals have to learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more common because you positively have the gift.
