"5 pm, ma'am."


"What? My baby can no longer wait for that! Can you please ask the personnel a favor to make it earlier? "


My 3 month-old-baby was already very weak and gasping.


His abdomen became larger and larger in each hour that passed by.


Three days ago, we brought him for admission at the hospital where I worked due to several projectile vomiting .


I knew the danger of dehydration very well because there were already countless patients of this case that we had encountered .


But it was not a simple dehydration as I expected .


It held a bigger unknown threat that needed immediate surgical intervention.


But before the pediatric surgeon could figure out what would be the best approach since ultrasound and x-rays failed to reveal the problem, he ordered a CT Scan of the Whole Abdomen with Contrast.


The said procedure was scheduled at one of the most famous and big hospital of the city since our own hospital did not have it yet.


Everything about him suddenly became so erratic including his laboratory results.


Life saving devices were already prepared inside our room. I knew that his chance of survival became very thin.


And I was afraid that my child could not wait for another few hours if no intervention would be given.


"Ma'am, we are so blessed. His schedule is moved to 3pm so it would be now less than an hour to prepare. "


I was relieved but another much bigger problem than the schedule arose.


I did not have the money needed. I did not have even the money for taxi fare and hospital downpayment, in the first place, when we came here.


We just borrowed it from a friend who was one of the two persons in my contact list that responded to my plea to lend me the money I needed at that time.


I only had few minutes left then. I asked for a vacant room and there I rolled down and cried while I prayed for a miracle to provide me ways right then.


As soon as I got up from my knees , my cellphone suddenly beep continuously.


"Ms. /Mr. Lucero, please claim your money remittance through… "

“Lucero女士/先生,请通过…接收您的汇款。”And one after another, I received different messages telling me to get the money they sent for my baby.


I began to wonder where they knew about my son. There were only two who responded in that message. The first one, lent us the money and the other refused kindly as she was also in financial setbacks.


I had the money then in less than an hour! Not only for the CT Scan but for our immediate needs during our whole hospital stay!


I was so awed at how destiny arranged all the incidents in our lives to come up for blessings that it has prepared ahead of us! But most of all for the first sign that He has shown me, that my baby shall live!



Stop being too obsessed with productivity.


The productivity of a worker is rather important.


The amount of work you do says something about your ability, but only in a limited way.


Besides, comparing two people’s ability simply by the amount of work they do is really not a smart way.


Such value is used to judge the assembly line workers in the industrial age, and it is obviously inappropriate to judge today's brain workers.


If you think about how to do more work every day, your mindset will become increasingly fixed, and your ability to solve open problems will get worse over time.


Moreover, this way of working will take up your time when you should be making strategic planning. Instead, you are only trying to become a better-functioning part of a machine, which is definitely not good for your long-term career development.



Are you ready for a new boss?


Your happiness and success in your job has a lot to do with the relationship that you have with your boss.


You might spend a long time building this relationship, but people move on, and one day, they might leave.


You find yourself reporting to someone new, and you want to establish their trust and respect, quickly.


The first step you should take is to build in some “networking” time with your boss–whether it’s coffee, or scheduling some time in a calendar for focused discussion.


This way, you can start to learn their goals, working styles and any new ideas they might have, and work to amend your priorities where appropriate.


Be proactive in terms of identifying where they might need help–that’s an easy way for you to secure some quick wins to help them shine, which builds goodwill quickly.
