Learn to Delegate

CEOs are often seen as major control freaks. About a decade ago, I would have agreed to this perception whole heartedly. That is because back then, I was a firm believer of the saying “If you want it done right, do it yourself” and boy, did I do a lot of things myself! I was doing the work of half a dozen people because I didn’t trust them enough to be able to do it right even if I screened, interviewed, and handed out their job offers myself.

This all changed when I missed the birth of my son. I can still remember that day very clearly. I was stuck in a meeting with an advertising agency I just hired to launch a campaign for my company. I had my advertising and marketing executive with me in the meeting but I just couldn’t bring myself to leave him alone with the team the agency assigned to handle our account. I was so engrossed in the meeting that I didn’t bother to pick up my phone when my mother-in-law called. Little did I know, she was calling to let me know that my wife had already gone into labor and my son was due to come out in the next couple of hours.

By the time I finally checked my phone, my little boy had already been born and I missed the whole thing. I was very upset and disappointed in myself that I cried and apologized to my wife profusely when I got to the hospital. From then on, I vowed to delegate tasks so I would never miss another important family event.


Learning to delegate was not easy for me. During the first few months, I worried incessantly about the tasks I assigned to my subordinates. But little by little, I realized that I had nothing to worry about because not only did they get the job done, the results were better than I expected. Over time, I learned to stop calling them every hour to get updates on their progress.

Aside from the extra time on my hands, there were other benefits to delegating tasks. First of all, I learned to trust my employees. I guess one of the main reasons why I refused to delegate was because I didn’t have enough confidence in my people. I just didn’t trust that they could get the job done much less do it better than me. I forgot that the reason why I hired them was because they were experts in their field.

Next, I was able to focus on other aspects of my business because I was able to see the bigger picture. I realized that because I was working on so many things at once, I was failing to see aspects that hindered the growth of my company. But because I delegated, I was able to focus on the growth of my company. Since then, my company has expanded to 50% more than when I started.

Lastly, I was able to earn the trust and respect of my employees. I saw that my people were happier because they were finally able to put their skills to use and experienced a growth in their careers. This is perhaps one of the biggest benefits of them all because everyone knows that one of the keys to a successful business is keeping employees happy.

Managing Your Kids

Despite my busy schedule, I make it a point to play an active role in my children’s lives. I’m not just talking about showing up at PTA meetings and piano recitals. While most parents with high-powered careers leave the job of raising the children to the one that’s left at home (usually the mom), my wife and I work together in making sure my kids grow up to be well-rounded individuals.

I have two daughters aged 15 and 13 respectively and a son who is 9 years old. Modesty aside, my kids are the best. They do not throw tantrums when they don’t get their way and they learned the value of hard work at a very young age. I will admit that I have somehow incorporated the way I handle my employees into my parenting style. However, seeing how effective it has been in instilling values and right conduct in my children, I am not sorry at all.


Here’s how I did it:

1. Setting Goals

Like with any other company CEO, I sit my employees down at the beginning of every quarter to discuss our goals for the next couple of months. I do the same with my kids. We sit together as a family and talk about what my wife and I would like to see them achieve for say, the first quarter of the year. After we’ve had our say, we give them the chance to “negotiate” our expectations until we come to a compromise. Of course, we also let them know that it is okay to tell us what kind of support they need to achieve those goals.

2. Reward System

I am very generous when it comes to rewarding my employees for a job well done. I use this same principle with my kids. I don’t always give them what they ask for if I don’t think they deserved it. This is how they learned to value the rewards of working hard. Let me give you an example.

A couple of months ago, my eldest daughter asked me for an Iphone 6. There wasn’t anything wrong with the phone she had at the time but it was an Iphone 4 and you know how it is with teenagers these days. They just have to have the latest gadget. I told her that if she got straight A’s for the first quarter of the school year, I would get her a new phone. Of course, she worked very, very hard over the next months and even exceeded my expectations. I was more than happy to reward all her hard work with a brand new Iphone 6 as soon as I got her report card.

3. The Demerit System

You know how you get three strikes at work before you get laid off? I do the same with my kids when they misbehave. Except of course, I don’t lay them off. Rather, we set a demerit system for misdemeanors.

When they ask us for something big like a really expensive toy, gadget, or a trip abroad, they need to really behave over the next few months. Minor misdemeanors will cause one demerit and if they reach three strikes, the deal’s off. If they really misbehave, we don’t wait for three strikes. Of course, we also sit each child privately to calmly explain why such behavior is unacceptable so they know to not act that way again in the future.

The demerit system has helped my wife and I discipline our children in such a way that they understand why they are being punished. As a result, they have become very mindful of their actions and make it a point to observe proper behavior whether they are at home or otherwise.

My Top 3 Travels in 2014

2014 has been an exciting year for me. For the first time in a long while, I got the chance to take some time off from work and spent it traveling with my family. I know that’s sounds a little bit ironic considering I am the CEO of an airline company. Yes, getting somewhere, practically anywhere in the world, isn’t the problem. It’s getting enough time off to enjoy a trip.

You see, being a company’s CEO is not all it’s cracked up to be. Most people think CEOs can take off any time they want because they have people to take care of everything. What they don’t understand is how important it is for us CEOs to be on top of everyone else in the company. Simply put, things could easily crumble if we don’t pay close attention to the operations of our business.

But enough about that. Today I would like to tell you about my experience while traveling with my family. I let my kids pick the destinations for our trip because I wanted to make sure that they would have the time of their lives. Let me tell you now, it was a trip we won’t forget anytime soon.

Without further adieu, here are my top 3 travels in 2014:

1. Fiji

Our first stop was Fiji, a Melanesian country comprised of 300 plus islands located in the South Pacific Ocean. We stayed in Viti Levu, the largest and most populated island of them all. It was absolutely breathtaking. The waters were clear sparkling turquoise and sand on the beach was powdery white. During our 2-week stay, we island hopped, surfed, sunbathed, swam, and enjoyed the top notch hospitality and food that Fiji had to offer.


I definitely recommend the Fiji Islands to families and couples who want to get away from their busy lives and enjoy some peace and quiet under the sun.

2. Norway

After enjoying the tropical climes, we made our way to the Svalbard Islands in Norway. My son has an affinity for astronomy and fought tooth and nail with his sister for this destination because he wanted to see the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights can actually be seen all over Norway but I decided it was best to head North so we could get a better view.

Our trip to Norway is not something I will ever forget in my lifetime. Seeing the Northern Lights up close was a jaw-dropping experience. My wife had tears in her eyes as she told me that it was better than any fireworks show she has ever seen. My kids, especially my son, were speechless. I, on the other hand, was overwhelmed by the emotions coming off from my family and the mystical beauty of what I was seeing.

3. Andalusia, Spain

Our last stop was Andalusia, Spain. My wife picked this destination because she wanted to tour the castles and mansions in Alhambra. It was a very culturally enriching experience because we got the opportunity to see the dwelling place of kings and queens of the 14th century.

The tour we booked included lunch served in one of the gardens in the palace built in the 11th century. We were catered to by waiters dressed in replicas of the clothing worn by servants in the past. During lunch, our tour guide talked a little more about the history of the palaces in Alhambra and the steps taken to preserve the monuments.

Hiring a Professional or Investing in Your Own Chainsaw?

Hiring a Professional or Investing in Your Own ChainsawThere are some tasks at home that you don’t have to do by yourself. For instance, you have broken appliances; you can just call someone to repair them. When you need to have your bathroom remodeled, you can also hire someone to do everything for you. Of course, this comes with a price. You can just sit there and watch them do the job, but you need to pay them for their services in the end.

The same thing is true when you need to cut a huge tree in front of your house that could pose a serious threat when there is storm coming. You have two options when presented with this problem. You can either hire someone who has the skill in using a chainsaw to cut the tree down or you can buy your own chainsaw and cut the tree yourself.

The advantage of buying a chainsaw

When you have those options, the first one is definitely the easiest way out. You don’t have to face your fear of using the chainsaw. You also don’t have to waste your time on a chore that someone else can do. The down side is that this professional service might cost a lot. Not so many people are good at this job so you can expect them to ask you for a pretty high professional fee.

On the other hand, if you invest on a new chainsaw, then you can do the task yourself. It means that you can invest now and use the chainsaw whenever you want. It might seem expensive as new chainsaws are really expensive, but you will still save money in the long run. You might need to cut this big tree for now. In the future, you might have to use the chainsaw again. If you keep hiring someone to do the job for you, it might be very costly.

Learning a new skill

Now that you have bought the chainsaw, you can learn how to use it. This might be scary at first, but you can do it when you are really determined to learn. You have to wear safety gears first and ask someone to teach you. If not, you can check out online tutorials.

Buy a Juicer to Save Money and Stay Healthy

Buy a Juicer to Save Money and Stay Healthy

However, if you do the same thing over and over again, you have already wasted a lot of money. Add to that the fact that you tend to buy soda or sweetened juices since they taste better.

Besides, you can also mix different types of fruits and create a fruit mix.

A healthier lifestyle

You might spend money on a new juicer, but this is like investing on your health. Of course, you cannot put a price tag on that. When you have a juicer, you start to eliminate soda or alcoholic drinks from your diet. Fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals. If you constantly drink fruit juices, then your immune system becomes stronger.

Aside from fruits, you can also use vegetables. A lot of people don’t want to eat vegetables. However, if they are ingested in a liquid form, then they might seem appealing. You can mix them with sweet fruits and you have a perfect combo. This might take a lot of getting used to. However, when you have gotten used to it, then you won’t look for other beverage options anymore. You know that your juicer will do the trick for you.

One of the regular expenses that you could incur is for water bills. The amount depends on the number of people in the family. The good thing is that you don’t have to suffer from high cost of water bills anymore since there are ways for you to reduce your monthly expenses.

Repair broken faucets and shower heads

If you see water dripping from the water source even if it has already been turned off, then there is a problem. You might not act on it right away since the amount of water being dropped is too little. However, as it accumulates over time, it also increases the amount of water wasted. As a result, you end up paying a lot for your water bills. Therefore, if you find a problem, you have to fix it immediately or find someone else to do it for you.

Buy new kitchen faucets

The kitchen faucet is usually the most commonly used faucet at home. This is where you clean the ingredients for cooking, wash your hands before eating and wash the plates too.

Use a bucket

Instead of using a hose for watering the plants, you can use a bucket instead. When you use a bucket, your mind is tricked to use only the amount of water available in the container. It means that you maximize the content and limit the usage. On the other hand, if you use other devices, you don’t care about the amount of water used since it keeps coming out of the source. Before you know it, you have already used up a lot of water that you don’t even need.

If you start changing your ways now, you will save a lot of money. You need to be more practical now. You can’t do the same thing over and over again. You work hard to earn money and enjoy life.

Learning to use a chainsaw

When things get really tough, I simply go to the farm we own and cut logs. I use chainsaw to pound them into smaller pieces. I have learned using chainsaws just a few years ago. We were out in the farm for a holiday when I saw our caretaker using the chainsaw. I told myself that this is something that I have never done before so I have to give it a try. I asked our caretaker to teach me and he did. All the steps were taught including ways to stay protected when using the tool.

Therefore, during the process, you start forgetting about everything that makes you stressed out. If you continue doing the task, you have already forgotten about the problem that you are facing. I am not certain if it will work for everyone, but it definitely worked for me.

Try Cross Fit Exercises After Work

crossfitPeople always have excuses not to work out after work. They complain about so many things. Later on, when they have put on weight, they wonder why. I also have that mentality before. I make an excuse that I can’t do any type of exercise since I am a CEO. I run a very huge company and I no longer have time for exercise. However, with my friends telling me that life is not just about careers, I eventually realized that I must do something. I am not getting any younger. My career might be at the pinnacle of success, but if my health can’t cope up, then I will still not enjoy what I have achieved.

Exercise 2.0

My friends introduced me to cross fit. They told me that it is the best option to make up for all the years that I have not tried any form of exercise. At first, I was so confident. However, when I saw just how difficult the moves are, my mind changed and I thought of backing out. My friends pushed me and told me that they also started as beginners. With determination, they were able to try out more difficult stunts. They also guided me in every step of the way.

At first, I suffered from tons of injuries. However, there is a force that pushes me to still give it a try. I decided to just go for it no matter how difficult it is. After work, I head to the gym where my friends are waiting for me to start the entire process. They kept on pushing me until such time that I got the hang of it.

Tons of benefits

To begin with, I lost a lot of weight in just a few months. I also felt a lot younger. At the office, I feel no pressure whatsoever. Even if I am faced with a lot of problems, I still don’t care. My mind is always energized and I tend to make the right decision always. This is when I started to see that cross fit has its benefits outside physical health. This is why I am highly recommending it especially to those who are always busy at work. In fact, when you are busier, you have more reasons to try cross fit.

Getting ready

When you are finally giving this a try, you need to prepare physically. You have to try out smaller gym equipment first. You can’t shock your body with really difficult moves.

Just like me, I know that a lot of you experience the same problem. There are days when you feel like giving up. You don’t want to go to work. Even if you do, you are not as productive as you are supposed to be.

Take a break

One of the best ways to cope up with stress is by taking a break. I don’t force myself to finish tasks when I am not in the mood to do so. I always stop when things are already overwhelming. There is no point in still working when I can’t focus on the job. It will just make things worse as I could get some things wrong. When you are in your office, take some time to stand and move around. Make sure that you stay away from anything related to your job. If there is a park nearby or a mall where you can stroll around, go out and head there. You don’t have to be there for many hours. You just need to breathe fresh air then you can go back to work again.

Drink fruit juices

Another way to cope up with stress at work is to take fruit juice. I have started doing this as a replacement for coffee. I hate drinking coffee as it has effects on my sleep. I also shake a lot when I drink a glass of coffee. With fruit juices, I feel refreshed and more energized to go back to work. I also don’t feel any side effects. The best part is that it is like tasting heaven for a while and so I feel better the moment I head back to my desk. There are also a lot of fruits to choose from. I just toss inside the juicer the fruit that I wanted and in a few seconds, it is good to go.

When Your Programming Job is Stressful, Go Out for a Walk

When Your Programming Job is Stressful, Go Out for a WalkA programming job is one of the most stressful jobs there is. It entails a lot to get the job done.

Go back more prepared

Now that you have already taken some time out of your work, your mind is fresher and you can start over again. You have to practice this always since you need focus when you are on your job. If you are out of concentration, then you can never get it done. If you force yourself to finish the job, you will also go nowhere. Computer programming is not like other jobs where you can do everything quickly. In this field, everything has to be smooth and slow until you reach perfection. It is also important that you learn about different programming languages that can be used in different applications. To top it all, when you know a lot about different languages, you might easily get confused. Therefore, it helps if you clear your mind first so you can easily determine the right steps to be undertaken.

Quality time with your baby

On the side line, doing this makes you spend more time with your baby. You might not notice it but when you are so busy with your job, you don’t get these small moments that are very precious. If you constantly do this, then you form a bond that is very important.
