Sacrificing time for money BP situation

If the Managers or Supervisors of BP Oil really did sacrifice time for money, this is not unique to them. In business you hear and see this happening quite often.

Some of us, love to take short cuts. We are quite aware that the company policy has a prescribed method for doing something, but we realize that if we are able to complete the job another way it would save time and money. So we make the decision. This is probable what happened with BP Oil.

Think about it, as a Manager or Supervisor how many times have you operated outside the box or outside the company’s policies, because you feel you can save time and make more money? If you were at BP Oil what would you have done?

In the heat of the moment the adrenalin is flowing, the customer is there demanding some type of service that is not covered by policy, or the guys are there in the field or on the rig waiting on you to give the go ahead.

Is there time to analyze, to play out various scenarios?
What are your options? What impact your decision will have?
Are their lives involved?
What if your decision is not the right one?
Did the Managers at BP Oil reflect on all this?

Making more money for the company will definitely make you look good, or even finishing the project before the scheduled time. If this turn out well, it may even provide you with a promotion. You can see yourself winning branch of the year or company of the year. What about Project of the year?

Sacrificing time for money does not always work. You may take a short cut and end up with more problems than if you had taken the long way out. We all know this, and I am sure it may have happened to you several times.

Sometimes after you make the decision you recognize that a key part of the transaction was not completed or a process in the project was bypass and this would cause problems with the entire project. So what is more valuable time or money and what was valuable to the Managers of BP Oil?

As a Manager, Supervisor or even if you have your own business it is always good to ensure that when making any decision more so those where you are sacrificing time for money, that you consider all aspects of the situation:

– Explore various options – the what ifs.
– Get feedback – as Managers and Supervisors we do not always have all the answers.
– Review the costs of your decision – financial and non-financial (people/image).
– Is this within your authority?
– Do you have a backup plan?

You must remember that you would be accountable for whatever decision you make as in the case of the BP Oil officers or Managers. You cannot hide once you are the Manager, Supervisor or Business Owner you must be prepared to deal with the consequences of your decisions.

I would love to hear your views about time and money and BP Oil decisions.

What makes Coffee healthy?

The Caffeine in Coffee is known as a stimulator that  increases alertness and improves your ability to concentrate. Hence the reason most of us drink it. Coffee drinkers must have their coffee every day! There are claims that caffeine has additional health benefits, such as the ability to decrease risk of disease, improve athletic performance and boost memory.

An analysis which was completed by scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden was published in the American Journal of Epidemiology and revealed that people who drank two cups of coffee a day were 14 percent less likely to suffer from a stroke.  The analysis was  combined statistics from eight studies conducted between 1960 and 2011 that had researched the correlation between coffee consumption and human health. The analysis included the results of  surveys from some 500,000 individuals.

There are a lot of varying views and of course scientific opinion  is sometimes strongly divided on the accreditation of coffee as having potential health benefits.  Whether it is clear or not  there are strong indications from the experiences of individuals and some nutritionists  that  consuming coffee  may help in lowering the incidence of type 2 diabetes and heart disease and may provide other health benefits.

Let’s take a look at some research so far that indicate there may be some truth in the health potential of coffee:

Help in reducing the risk of stroke

The Karolinska Institute researchers  found that individuals who drank two and three cups of coffee a day appeared to be less likely to suffer from a blood clot in the brain by 14 and 17 percent, respectively. According to the published findings  the antioxidants found in coffee may help shield the brain’s blood vessels from so-called “bad” cholesterol.

Help in Lowering the risk of heart disease

Although Caffeine intake may cause an increase in blood pressure a Harvard Nurses’ Health Study  published that they did not find  habitual caffeine intake  as a reason for increases in  the risk of cardiovascular disease.  Further the Journal of Epidemiology and Human Health noted that drinking two cups daily reduced the risk of dying from heart disease by 23 percent. This was  according to a Japanese study of 81,000 men and women .

Lowering the incidence of type 2 diabetes

One 2004 study, where more than 125,000 participants were observed, the researchers theorized that it is the antioxidants in coffee (specifically ones like chlorogenic acid and magnesium) that helped improve insulin sensitivity.

 

Helping  with memory, alertness, and reasoning

For all the coffee drinkers, we all know what happens when we have that first cup  or two of coffee to wake us up.  Women 65 and older may find it very interesting to know that  a 2007 French study appear to reveal that the caffeine in coffee helped slow “cognitive decline.

About gallstone formation and gallbladder disease

If you are concerned about gallstone a study released in 2009 found that men who drank two to three cups of coffee daily were 40 percent less likely to develop gallstones compared to non-drinkers. According to Authorities moderate consumption of caffeinated coffee helps  with stimulating contractions in the gallbladder and lowering the cholesterol in the bile that can cause the stones to form.

Helping to protect against chronic liver disease

Some research seems to suggest that if you are at risk of developing liver disease because of heavy alcohol consumption you may benefit  from drinking a couple of cups of coffee daily. Indications are that Coffee may lower the risk of the development of elevated liver enzymes, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.

All the above  is based on moderation. We all know that we survive on more than one cup daily.

Organo Gold coffee’s key ingredient is Ganoderma— a form of mushroom that grows on wood that has been used in traditional Asian medicines for over 4000 years.  You can research the benefits of Ganoderma at the US National Library – pubmed.gov. Health News Volume 20 Number 4 also provides you with the personal experiences of people who have used Ganoderma.

Ganoderma is alkaline and when added to the Coffee it  provides the benefits of coffee and Ganoderma without the caffeine effects. See how much caffeine you are taking in with you favourite drink below:

People I know who have used the coffee have stated that they have experienced benefits such as improvement in balancing blood sugar, blood pressure, migraine headaches etc. I have personally tried all their products. I had stopped drinking coffee because of the side effects – acid reflux, restlessness and insomnia. Now I drink Organo Gold Coffee during the day and I feel great, sleep well and I do not have acid reflux. I have also not gotten the flu. Of course our bodies are all different. I challenge you to try a box and let me know your experiences.

These are my views based on my personal experiences, the experiences of people I know and on  online research. I would love to hear your views.
