How tired does one have to be after you’ve been hustling at work all day. Whether it be sitting at a desk or the medical field, construction, or protecting citizens from harm & hurt. I intentionally look forward to get up work because I’ve conditioned my thought process. I don’t always want to go punch the clock, but society being the way that it is non forgiving
All in a day’s work Do you have paint flaking or blistering from the elements that Mother Nature throws at your home. Cracking stucco, dirt and debris you can literally have your home power washed very lightly with your garden hose or the professionals at JWILLPAINTCO. We accept credit cards to help finance your budget.
Unfortunately I have to go to work just like everyone else, I enjoy making money, my wife says that’s fine but I’m focused on the wrong thing. My relationship with her and the kids. Darn me for being so selfish and serious about bringing home the bacon per say. Relationships take time & commitment with understanding of each persons trust and feelings. Does she trust me to go out & make ends meet. Of course, but one thing is for sure. I heard her when she said I need to work on my relationship. Everyone has relationship issues, whether it be great or not so great. No need for the B word. I don’t like negativity in a sense. I build my work relationship different from the same format. Which my approach and willingness to succeed. Some of you are married to your jobs. But be careful with what you do, say, think, and how you feel about him or her who doesn’t fit in what your standards are on your daily workflow of building a relationship with the Boss or fellas or ladies at work. I put forward my best foot first. Impressions can mean a lot to most of us if your not simple minded. I will adjust and be frugal in my dealings with my employees & customers or clients. I will paint the world many colors. One stroke at a time along with my relationship with you. New steps will be warranted.
1. Bad Intentions: What are your intentions with the man cave, even your office space ladies. We have every intention on freshing up the place. There is always a drawback. Have you ever heard words that come from your mouth are powerful. Does this sound familiar. I’m going to paint my bedroom or kitchen or garage. I got it bad too. I put things on the back burner. But you better believe I will make sure this go round my home will be the envy of onlookers when it comes to that final drop of paint that hit them walls. Intentions what are some of yours mind sharing.
2. Procrastination: Who’s the slacker oops my hand went up now I’m just committed myself to finishing my projects at home or rental properties or whatever you have. But it takes finesse and stamina to keep up the hustle of getting it done. Your wife keeps saying when is the bathroom ceiling or tiles being placed in the wall or floor. Babe I’m tired I will get it done this weekend or when taxes come around. Sounds like BS I’m sorry babe I been working 10hr shifts. Simple solution 20 min a day proves you have just the right amount of drive to knock out that punch list. Start checking it off. Procrastination. What’s yours
3. I Can’t: I can’t this week, I can’t I’m tired. I have to get up at 4am I can’t afford to spend any more money. Yes that one right there is a big issue. Believing your own hype doesn’t produce progress. Just causes so unwanted stress. I can’t I can’t say I know I can just like the little engine that could. The truth hurts. Here is some self help. “There is only one way that is safe for any man, or any number of men, by which they can maintain their present position if it be a good one, or raise yourself above it. Only if it be a bad one,—that is, by the practice of the virtues of your Good Intentions.
I’m just a call away I can help

Easier said than done. Motivation plays a key factor. Patience is needed when painting, so why rush through it. Set some time aside get it banged out. A touch here a touch up there, before you know it your almost done. I can’t blame you. You are a working parent maybe, you have two jobs. If your struggling pay check to check. Here I can offer a solution start with only one room and 2 gal of paint. Try painting one room a month. That way you can easily make headway. Don’t push yourself to much. Maybe the honeydoo list is not a top priority. You need to stop making excuses and get it done.
Hey there friends if you been debating on painting your homes exterior or some project room interior. Maybe putting it off this year is a bad idea. Let me tell you why, here in Phoenix the housing market is going up, why not add some value to your investment. Look if your house is 7 to 15yrs old and you have kids, you and your spouse both work. The husband honey due list just seems to drag on. Obviously your finically strapped right now. Maybe he would rather have the man cave he wanted. Maybe she wants more communication and more money, stability, maybe have her office painted where she can read her inspirational book to you on how to be successful this year. Get up take a look around and take notes and look at the most important investment. Your home will only increase in value with a new & fresh Reno job. A very little paint goes a long way for years to come. Don’t blame it on the kids they notice the house needs a fresh make over. Really thinking on taking that plunge. I can help JWillPaintCo I helped MNR Painting on this one. Ask yourself some of these questions:
- Can you afford a touch up paint job
- Will it look professional
- How quick can it be done
- How do I know your company is trustworthy. Faith
- Why is Pride even on the list
Before there was once a house that needed a splash of fresh color!
Holiday greetings you don’t want to get your hands dirty. I will be there for you.☃🌨

One area that is all too often overlooked in creating a healthier environment at home is the decorating and DIY materials that we use. Many popular paints, varnishes and garden treatments give off chemicals including VOCs that may be harmful to our health in the long term. If you have chemical sensitivity, you may even experience unpleasant effects as a result of using these in the short term.
ECOS (now known as Lakeland) paints is the only complete range of solvent-free and VOC-free organic paints. Highly pigmented with superior colour depth, this range carries the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval and is 7000 times purer than standard low odour paints.

Why it’s Crazy for People to Pressure Marissa Mayer on Maternity Leave
December 14, 2015 • 15,468 Views • 349 Likes • 62 Comments
Marissa Mayer has had a pretty big week. She and Yahoo’s board announced plans to spin off its core business, and she gave birth to twin girls. There has obviously been substantial commentary on the business update, but there has also been plenty of ink spilled about her birth, and her decision to take a brief maternity leave. For example, the eloquently titled article in the Daily Beast “Marissa Mayer’s Two Week Maternity Leave is Bulls*t.” In my opinion, the world needs to accept that she is able to make her own personal choices on maternity leave, and drop the excessive judgment.
Reality Check: It’s Nearly Impossible for Mayer to Take Leave Right Now
It seems crazy to consider Mayer’s decision in a vacuum. To call Yahoo ‘unstable’ right now would be the understatement of the century. Executives at the company have been dropping like flies, and publications on the full spectrum from the LA Times to Vogue have been speculating over whether she’ll even be able to keep her job. More generously, the New York times declared that “Marissa Mayer has a Year to Fulfill Yahoo’s Potential.”
The comparisons between Mayer and Mark Zuckerberg’s choices of parental leave have abounded, though it’s a pretty comical comparison given the endless differences in the states of the two companies. I doubt Zuck is spending his paternity leave wondering if his job, or even his company, will be there when he gets back in two months (especially because we all know Sheryl’s got it covered).
But just imagine if Zuckerberg had become a father in 2012, when Facebook shares were valued around $18, not over $100 as they have been during his leave. Back then, people wondered whether Facebook would be able to come up with an effective mobile strategy. He essentially put everyone at the company on “lockdown” while this happened. I’m doubtful that he would have taken two months of paternity leave at the time, and even more doubtful that shareholders would have supported that decision.
Mayer was brought in as a turnaround CEO in a sector where successful turnarounds are unheard of. To say she should feel pressure to work less during this time is unreasonable. Sure, no pressure — just turn the company around, and do it without working for four months (the full maternity benefit offered to Yahoo employees). By the way, we’re all watching and we’ll be calling for your head if you fail.
I think this is perfectly captured by Jamie Dimon in his statement that “buying a house and buying a house on fire are two different things.” Mayer is trying to save a house that’s on fire, and ignoring that isn’t realistic.
But What About the Need for Female Role Models?
There is a time and a place to focus on what it means to be a good role model. I generally think about that as being an appropriate focus when everything else is in order — if her company had even a modicum of stability, she would have the luxury of considering this.
There are plenty of critics piling on that Mayer’s choice sets a bad example for women. But the best thing Mayer can do for aspiring career women is save her company from failure. Or, better yet, lead Yahoo to success. I should hope that her mark as a businesswoman would be measured by far more than how she handled maternity plans.
As a CEO, her core responsibility is to turn her company around, and I don’t blame her for prioritizing this over how it looks to other women.
Also, what would happen to society’s vision of maternity leave if Mayer very publicly fails or gets fired while she’s out or immediately after she returns? This might be more detrimental for young women to see as an example.
Is She Telling Female Employees Through her Actions That They Shouldn’t Take Leave?
I find the questions about employee perception equally misplaced. There are plenty of reasons I wouldn’t want to work at Yahoo. Namely, the place seems like a disaster at the moment. But I would hope employees would be more focused on their CEO fighting for their company to stay in existence than how it looks that she’s rushing out of the maternity ward.
One quote in Fast Company this week asked “If the most powerful person in the company doesn’t feel comfortable pausing for a rest after the birth of a child, how are less powerful “Yahooligans” viewed if they choose to take the full 12 weeks they’re entitled to?” First off, Mayer has actually doubled Yahoo’s paid maternity benefit during her tenure — the company now pays for 16 weeks maternity leave, and eight weeks paternity leave.
As an employee, I might be relieved that she “doesn’t feel comfortable pausing for a rest” right now. She’s fighting so this company, and the 11,000 jobs that go with it, stay afloat. This is a huge responsibility, and if she succeeds then I imagine children of those Yahooligans will be grateful that their parents can pay rent.
She’s Not Exactly Leaving her Newborns to Fend for Themselves
Everyone seems to disparage the fact that she has the financial resources to make this tenable. I certainly don’t (and I’m sure Mayer doesn’t) pretend that this ability applies to everyone. But it’s certainly a perk that applies to all top CEOs.
Everyone pictures the first weeks of motherhood as women who haven’t slept or showered, who would give their left arm for a 30-minute nap. Mayer can have full time child care, and even has the added luxury of being able to bring her children to work. If this is what she wants, and she thinks it will enable her to lead her company away from imminent disaster, fantastic! It’s pretty obvious that this setup isn’t meant to be a roadmap for employees working under her (though if anyone has gone to their boss to ask for an in-office nursery, you are a legend).
Why We Need to Back Off
Mayer’s choice to take a very short leave is just that: her choice. If a CEO of her stature is bending her leave to suit the attitudes of society, then what progress have we made as women?
Do I think all women should feel pressured to make their leaves as short as possible? Absolutely not! But it seems like classic mommy wars shaming to say that Mayer should feel obligated to take longer than she has chosen just so that she can appease the public.
I strongly believe that women who want to take several months off of work to care for their newborns should be supported in doing this. I just don’t think a single choice should be foisted onto everyone. As Stacey Bendet, CEO of Alice and Olivia, pointed out in a recent interview about her six day maternity leave, “why should we insist that all women have the same experience after they give birth?”
As a female founder of a tech company myself, I have given this a lot of thought. I have made choices that mean that I will not be able to take a traditional maternity leave, and I’m happy to have the flexibility to make that choice. Individual circumstances can’t be ignored — I know that early in my company’s existence, I couldn’t simply go offline for four months, or even two. It just wouldn’t be realistic to expect that things could keep going as I want them to.
Given all that Mayer has going on at Yahoo, she’s being judged for continuing to work, but the judgment would be tenfold if she decided to take a few months off right now.

She volunteered for that job. She has how many people, who have children and issues to deal with, who depend on her? Of course she should get some time. More if there are issues. And frankly more if Yahoo was doing fine. But it’s not. And much of that is on her. She is now responsible for much more than her immediate family. She signed up to have a corporate on e as well.

“Husband & Wife I know Riches Begin In The Form Of Thought! The amount is limited only by the person in whose mind the THOUGHT is put into motion. Really as hard as you put effort in to make the right adjustment, my thought pattern sucked before. FAITH removes limitations! “For real” remember this when you are ready to bargain with Life for whatever it is that you ask as your price for having passed” up some Being Above Average grown man & woman talk. My perspective on how we function, get up & go hustle, so much pepper being thrown your way. You sneezed I heard you. Bless you! My mind is fine☺️
Sometimes Thinking outside my element that I experience myself the most. I see and feel who I really am, the most! I think that’s like, you see, a person who works to live versus the one who works because it’s the Norm. I feel zombie like don’t get it twisted I’d rather be house rich than being in a fog. Universal and intelligent talk is needed I love and lean on my wife for support. I look towards the heavens and say why me. But it’s only when it ventures too close to my so call pride as a man being above average My mind burst like firecrackers and realizing if I don’t do this grown man ish. I fall I get back up That’s why I enjoy taking myself out of my own element, my own comfort zone, and hurling myself out into the unknown. Because it’s during those scary moments, those unsure steps taken, that I am able to see that I’m like a comet hitting a new atmosphere: suddenly I illuminate magnificently and fire dusts begin to fall off of me! I discover a smile I didn’t know I had, I uncover a feeling that I didn’t know existed in me… I see myself. I’m a shooting star. A meteor shower. But I’m not going to die out. I guess I’m more like the creator of my existence intended me to be. Looking at my Sons and daughter and grand son. I know what love is no future in half ass work. I’m just going to keep on coming back. Thanks keep coming back.
