A Medical Courier’s Perspective

Effect of stress while driving

Perspective Views Being a medical courier has changed my point of view of the pandemic. My perspective as a medical courier of the pandemic seems to have two faces in Madison, WI.

Where Are The Men?

This question took shape in my mind while preparing breakfast for my partner one morning. We were discussing the coronavirus (Covid-19).

Jumping The Stairs

Easy Stairwells I didn’t know jumping the stairs would lead to a revelation about photographs, exposures, and creativity. Silly challenge activities like rapid stair descents are not conducive for inspiring creative outcomes in photographic classrooms. Though in this case, one reckless activity spurred another.

On the other hand, supervision is a management style that can be learned. Supervision is easily defined as it is the act of delegating and monitoring to ensure a task […]

Discipline is Necessary

When either a leader or supervisor is trying to manage a successful outcome, discipline is very important. I am not talking about the standard definition where we try to control the lives of people and their time at work.
