Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years

Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years: Version 2.0!

Monday, August 29, 2011


Part of my job is to offer encouragement and motivation to an already highly motivated team.

There are a few however that go on and on about how hard they suck.

Don't cut yourself down, there are always going to be ijits who will do that for you.

Being self effacing is one thing; really being down on yourself and walking around with a black cloud all the time is another.

There are a couple I'd like to smack silly.  Part of me thinks maybe they didn't receive enough attention when young.

Not sure which is worse, working with someone who thinks themselves pure awesomeness with an overdeveloped self confidence, or someone who thinks they suck and everyone hates them.

Right now, I'd say the latter.

Whatever it is, the lack of self confidence is pretty damn annoying at times.  But I've become quite adept at putting aside the irritation and getting them back on that horse, focused on something more positive and relevant.

Just you thinking. In the Korea, must say bad thing always to making look better. Coworker probably think is better at the everything than you really. Korean have more high expect and so reach top of mountain is very very higher place. Example, Samsung climb Himalaya and General Electric climb fucking hill. Look your fucking TV now and see it no fucking GE piece of shitty. This why future is Asia and white people who think "we number one" going down stupid ant hill.
