Finding A Work Nemesis

A lot of work horror stories start off with someone complaining about their workplace enemy. These types of people can ruin a job and years of some one’s life working in a hostile environment. I have never experienced this, so this will absolutely not be a post in regards to that scenario.

A situation that can be beneficial is finding a work place “nemesis”. By nemesis, I mean someone that motivates you and bring out a competitive spirit. Developing a relationship within an office environment can constantly be the fire underneath your seat to get you going. This can be especially helpful if you happen to work in sales. A lot of sales people have very tangible goals: monthly quotas, year or year goals, month over month goals, etc.

If you can find someone to compete against, you not only have extra motivation to get to those goals, but also extra motivation to drive even further past those goals. In turn, pushing past those goals typically means more commission, more bonuses, more revenue, and more freedom. It is truly a win-win-win. Both sales people get benefits and the company will also benefit from the added revenue.

Things like this can help any one in any company. If you have a sales team of two, talk about these goals and how to push each other. If you have a sales team of 100, find a few that are close to you in numbers and hammer out some great months.  Competition is good; use it to your advantage.

Thanks for stopping by!

      The theme I used is automatically responsive. I think it just depends on what theme you use and if the creator keeps it updated appropriately. Not sure how else to work around it through WordPress. A custom coded site would be a code update to make it responsive.

  8. Major thankies for the blog article.Really thank you! Much obliged.

  9. It’s remarkable in favor of me to have a web site, which is good for my knowledge. thanks admin

    but I know I am getting know-how every day by reading such nice articles or reviews.

  12. Howdy are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create

      No you do not need to understand coding. You only would need that if you wanted to customize something outside your template/theme. Yes, this is a WP platform. If you want to grow something robust, there are better more custom built options. For simple sites like this, WP works ok.

  13. Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger,
    and I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are
    looking to exchange solutions with others, why not shoot
    me an e-mail if interested.
