How to skip negativity and be the source of positivity in the workplace

the workplace is filled with nice and kind people, if you can’t find one, be one.

be the help we wish we had, be the boss you wish you had.

always try to leave things in better state than when you’ve found them [boyscout rule]

if you find yourself in a situation where you are neither learning, nor contributing, use your own two feet to go somewhere else. [law of two feet]

always try to make it easy for people to do the right things.

No one wakes up everyday and say “today i wanna do my best to annoy my co-workers”, always remember that!

lead by example.

smile.

Things that new employees don’t seem to know about work

Companies are run by people (not machines), everything can be negotiated, dont get blocked by what you see from Job Ads and Bulletins.

Companies don’t always know what they are doing, many just pretend that they do, question the status quo, ask why 5 times, find the first principles. find out why people do things.

Salary/Compensation is never fail and equal, there’s no sense comparing your’s with your co-worker, WE GET WHAT WE ASK FOR. state your desires/skills during interviews (be sure to have the right skills for your job before you demand tho)

Blame is not for failure, it is failing to help others or ask for help, asking for help is something people are too embarassed about. there is nothing embarassing about wanting to improve yourself or your work.
