Be Positive

Perhaps you hate your new client, are exhausted from pulling an all-nighter or can’t stand your coworkers. Newsflash: No one cares, and your boss certainly doesn’t need to hear about it (unless that complaint comes with a solution….more on that later). Bottom line: a good attitude can carry you far; bosses promote those who they enjoy spending time with, and no one wants to work side-by-side with Debbie Downer all day. Smile.
