About time we need to look at stress at work. Leaders cannot look at ambitious KPI only. We need to balance out between work, productiviti and life. We need to enjoy our life at work, enjoy aor job and later high productuivity and the boss can enjoy more. Less stress less complaint from the workers, less stress for the leaders and the leaders are always happy.

Visited my friend's farm. After retired we have time to do what we like to do and what we are interested in. May be all head of government departments can assess their staff after retired. They should assess their staff at the age 0f 40-50 years old and try to get their expertise. Do not be threathen by your staff because you are already the boss. Get their strength to strengthen your department and leadership.

Food always easy to attract tourists. This special location attarcting tourists to stop and taste specially cooked of local clams. It is very interesting BUT we must look at continuous supply if it is in high demand. Biologists must help to provoide a sustainable industry. Another thing is pollution. Wild clams usually exposed to pollution especially in the poorly managed domestic and industrial or agricultural wastes. The local authority must look in to this in all aspects. Experts advice is needed.
