My Dirty Little Secret For Happy Knowledge Work

Photo: Flickr/Bob Bob - Creative Commons

By David Murray

Sometimes I get envious of painters, plumbers, landscapers, carpenters and others who get to work with their hands and have something to show for it at the end of every day, or at least every week.

What do I and other “knowledge workers” have to show for it every seven days?

Virtually nothing.

Or most of it is “virtual” – words that are hidden inside our computers and servers: in files, documents, reports, spreadsheets, and so on. But there’s not a lot of physicality to this.

Some of these words may get posted on the Internet – but effectively disappear off the bottom of the page every few days

Some of the words become sermons which also largely evaporate into the air as they are spoken.

For knowledge workers in general, and for pastors in particular, there often just isn’t anything to show for weeks and weeks, months and months, years and years of mental sweat, blood, and tears. FULL POST

People You Fire: How Are They Doing Now?

There are a few ministry organizations in the country who’s list of people that have been fired is like a “who’s who” of great leaders. It seems like when talented employees start rising, the CEO of some organizations start getting nervous, and before long finds a reason to let them go. Stop for a minute and think about people you’ve fired over the years. Where are they now?

If the vast majority of people you’ve fired have moved on to launch other great ministries, nonprofits, or businesses, then something may be wrong with your management style, your ability to lead, or most likely: your level of insecurity.

If your “fired” list is an All Star list of other leaders and creative people, that’s a red flag that something’s wrong. You may be guilty of insecurity, fear, micromanaging, immaturity, or a host of other problems that simply drive people away. It’s time to stop rationalizing why they left and start looking inward at what you’re doing to drive them away. FULL POST

Benefits of a Decorated Outdoor Space

No matter how many square feet your home has, it never seems like enough. You might not have enough room to entertain company and you might not have that little corner you can curl up in and relax. Having an outdoor oasis can help you gain more space without adding on to your home.

More Space

When you decorate an outdoor space, you’re creating a space you can use for many things. You will be able to use this space to have family gatherings and you’ll even be able to use the space to throw dinner parties and entertain guests. This outdoor space can include such features as patio furniture and an outdoor table. You can even gain extra storage with a multi-use storage bench.

A Place to Relax

In addition to giving you some extra room for family gatherings and dinner guests, a decorated outdoor space can prove to be a relaxing oasis where you can escape. Add some decor and furniture you know you’ll use like a lounging chaise or a fire pit. Incorporate nature into your outdoor space with decorative bricks displaying a small garden.

A Selling Point

Not only will you gain more space for both entertaining and relaxing, decorating an outdoor space can add value to your home. If you’re planning on selling your home eventually, a well-decorated outdoor space can prove to be a selling point that attracts more buyers. This can increase the value of your home, allowing you to gain back some of your investment in the outdoor decor. FULL POST

Knowledge Based Authentication Infographic: The Difference between Static, Dynamic & Enhanced KBA

Knowledge based authentication, also known as KBA, is a type of authentication which looks to prove that the person providing identity information truly is that exact person. As its name suggests, KBA is based on some sort of knowledge the individual has. Knowledge based authentication continues to get more sophisticated in order to keep information and access in the right hands.

There are three different forms of KBA – static, dynamic and enhanced KBA.

Static and Dynamic KBA

Static KBA methods allow users to select security questions and provide answers that are stored by a company and accessed later, usually when a password needs to be retrieved or reset. Dynamic KBA, on the other hand, goes a step further by generating questions that apply only to the intended end user and do not require a previous relationship with the customer. These types of questions have also been called “out-of-wallet” as the content is generated from information within a person’s credit history or public records. Therefore, the answers could not be found in a wallet or purse, making it difficult for anyone other than the actual person to know the answer.
