March Madness, Not Politics in the Kingdom

Once Upon a Time, I took a break from Politics in my Social Media and Entertainment time…. It has been fantastic.  For the last 30 days I’ve been in a bubble.  I went through my feed and paused or unfollowed anyone who talked politics (on either side) more than once every few days. After a week my algorithm changed.  By removing those people and falling down the political rabbit hole, FB is showing me exciting things again, uplifting news stories and fun videos.  I’m finding my Social Media time, is fun again.  I’m not typing and deleting and typing responses to angry posts anymore.  The 30-day pause has become my favorite button.  It’s the unfollow/unfriend gateway.

I’ve also changed my drive time experience.  I’m not listening to CNN or FOX anymore.  As a news junkie, that’s been difficult.  I’ve switched to podcasts and audiobooks.  I just finished podcasts about Watergate and the Limited-Edition McDonald’s Sauce that caused a frenzy (who knew).  I’m learning, and I show up to clients uplifted or amused, instead of frustrated.

My 2nd favorite season is about to start and I’m going to continue my bubble into March Madness.  NCAA 2018I’m so excited to focus on something fun.  I’ve changed by SIRIUS presets to NCAA and ESPN.  I’ve scoured the podcast list to be ready.

We will be talking Basketball, Human Resources and Leadership for the next month.  So, get your brackets filled out and be ready to engage your team.

I’m hoping to collect Warren Buffet’s offer of $1 Million Dollars a year for life with the perfect bracket.

About evilqueenhr

Once upon a time there was a boring HR person sitting in a back office filling out paperwork spouting sections from the handbook. I’m not that HR person. Work is a scary and sometimes funny place with lots of lessons to learn along the way. People don’t follow the rules, it’s HR’s job to steer them in the right direction. Unfortunately there are no apples with spells to make the bad employees fall asleep until we can recruit new ones. My Name is Denise Benages and I have been in the Human Resource field for over 16 years. I am president of HR Midwest, Inc. I plan on telling the epic lore of the workplace and help with solutions.
