Have you Worked in Companies/Industries with Massive Inefficiency?

I'm nearly 3 years into my private sector career during which time I've been with two different solar PV installation companies. I've learned a massive amount both about myself and subject matter. But it seems like there is so much unnecessary inefficiencies, waste, errors and stress across all departments. I hope it's just because the industry is young with about 6 years of growth (is 6 years a young industry). My question is: is an absurd level of stress from waste, inefficiency, errors…See More

"Forget the books. Set an example by being the kind of man you would want your sister to end up with. And set the expectations (politely) for the live-in about how he needs to act in the home. Some rent, yard work, clean the bathrooms, etc. Not try…"

There are too many parenting books. Can anyone suggest one or two that are really good?I'm late twenties and moved back in with mom, sister and sisters live-in boyfriend. My sister is lacking strong guidance and my mom isn't stepping up so looks like I need to pick up the slack. I'm just looking for some day-to-day communication or guidance tools. She needs to get her grades up, lose some weight, and be more grateful she has a live-in boyfriend at the age of 16. It's getting out of hand and I'm…See More

How to Friendzone like a Gentleman?

Looking for some advice, or similar experiences from others here.  Sorry for the cheesy content.Just a little background, some of my friends are trying to set me and another friend of mine up. She's a very nice girl and I enjoy hanging out with her, but I just don't feel attracted to her in a romantic way.  At first I didn't do much about it, thinking that they would eventually get the point that I wasn't interested (I really didn't think that she had any feelings either).  Now it's to the…See More
