Happy Family Rules

Well now I don’t mean to be all intrusive in your family life, but sometime you may need help! And that’s why I’ve come up with this post – rules every happy family swears by! You may have set rules in your home, but if chaos is still marking its presence in your home, you need to rewrite the rules. Take a look at these rules; you’ll know what to cut down and what rules to add in:

Discuss the rules:
While creating the rules, you should involve your family in it. This way, every member gets a chance to put forth his opinion and views, making the rules more relatable and not imposed. Even the smallest member of your family can be included in the discussion. Come up with a set of rules everyone is comfortable by and attempt to get everyone to stick to them. Life will be a lot easier then!

Assign tasks:
To ensure only one person isn’t burdened with all the tasks, you have to come up with a system to assign tasks to everyone. Depending on age, available time, these tasks can be given. And every member is responsible for the work assigned to them, so that makes the system more sorted. Everyone is involved enough in the functioning of the household, and things will go on harmoniously.

Set aside time to talk:

time to talkThere are many homes where a specific hour is set aside just for the family to interact. This no-gadget time is entirely family time, where all the family members sit and discuss their day with each other. This helps you strengthen the bond you have with each other. Also, things are clarified and sorted right there, so there is no scope for any arguments in the future about those.

Do fun stuff together:
Bonding as a family is, and nothing more than doing fun activities together can help you do that. Play board games, set up camp in your backyard, have barbeque nights, cook or bake together, enjoy karaoke – you have to take out the time for the fun too. After all, it’s the fun that makes memories right?

Look out for each other:
Not every member of the family is the same. Someone may be an introvert; someone may be outspoken. You need to look out for every person differently and make sure that every member respects the others for who they are. It’s family where we can be ourselves entirely – so why not make it encourage it?

Challenges Faced By Businesses

Businesses these days are in an environment where the competition is cut-throat. There are so many challenges which lie ahead of these organizations. Owners and employees have to keep working to deal with these everyday challenges, finding innovative solutions to them. The problems need not be external, but internal, coming from within the organization too. We’ve talked about modern-day challenges which businesses come across.

Compromise on values:
There’s so much pressure to be the best out there, that even the one who holds his values in high esteem will be forced to compromise on them. The pressure to increase revenues, come up with higher profit figures, make a name in the market – values of integrity and honesty succumb under all of these. It’s disheartening, but if you have to survive in a business, that’s precisely what the scene out there is!

Uncertainty:
Though uncertainty is the crux of every business, the risk of it has increased over a period of time. It won’t take much time for a firm similar to yours to come up and take over the market. Businesses constantly live under this threat, making them work harder, as they know they’re replaceable at any moment.

Hiring the right people:
This is where most of them struggle. Even the most competent Human resources team at times falters in choosing the right person when hiring. This is a significant issue which businesses are facing – finding people with the skills, and talents that they require.

Compliance to regulations:
Many businesses are entangled in the constant blows reigned upon them by changing statutory requirements. More importantly, the focus has shifted upon businesses being more environmentally friendly and socially responsible, adding upon the existing pressures that the business has.

Competitors:
Continually keeping up with the competitors, improvising strategies, coming up with new better products and ideas to keep customers hooked keep business on their toes. And despite all the effort, at any moment, the competitors can get past you – the constant struggle to keep a hold on your customers and working to be one step ahead of your competitors just goes on.

Financial management:
Efficient management of funds, cash flows, maintaining profit margins, operational costs – these are commonly featured terms in business. Making sure that these numbers are stable and not fluctuating is what a business strives to do, but it’s not possible always. The financial management team comes into picture here – and finding the perfect team is one big challenge that every business comes across.
