    Managing Millennials & Surviving Boomer Bosses

    Blog | Megan Pacheco | February 06, 2020

    You’re probably thinking – is this even possible?

    Is it possible to manage entitled, spoiled and lazy Millennials? Can anyone survive narcissistic, micromanaging and ego-driven Boomer bosses? 

    With so many stereotypes, research papers and anecdotal evidence about each generation, it's hard to make sense of the generational gap in the workplace today.

    Are the stereotypes real? Can we brand every individual by these generational stereotypes?

  • The Truth Will Set You Free

    How many times has someone lied to you? Your kids? Family? Friends? When my kids were smaller, it was fun to ask a question (to which I already knew the answer) and see how they would answer it. If there was any thought they might get into trouble they would give an untruthful answer. Then I would ask another question and they would build on their untruthful answer from the prior question. On and on, one lie after another, to cover their mistake.

    Well, we’ve made it past the first of January with all the New Year’s resolutions mostly in the trash by now, I suppose. According to Hallmark and most retailers, it’s now time to gear up for Valentine’s Day. Isn’t it amazing how our years come and go based on the events of the calendar?

    “Just be patient with me please. I need to step up with my good leg.”

    My mother was always calm and insistent when others tried to hurry her along. She paid attention to the challenges of stairs and steps. When I was two years old, she contracted polio, which left her weak in one of her legs. It also robbed her of the active life she had lived up until then. Bowling, golf, enthusiastic dancing were all part of her past life, a life I had never witnessed.

    The Habit of Laziness

    Blog | Megan Pacheco | January 09, 2020

    Once in a while all of us want to be “lazy”— even if just for a little bit: Do nothing. Veg on the couch. Stare at the TV screen without having to engage much of our body or mind.

    Needing time to recover, decompress and renew isn’t true laziness. We all need rest, and our heavenly Father has modeled rest as a necessary practice that should not be overlooked or undervalued.

    Resting involves ceasing, for a short period of time, from a season of activity and productivity.

    “That night all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, ‘If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness! Why is the Lord bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?’ And they said to each other, ‘We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.’” (Numbers 14:1-4).
