It's life or it's work?

A happier life, anytime, is within reach:

1. Don't worry too much! Stop wasting your energy and time unnecessarily.

2. Don't let needless fears and frustration preoccupy and ruin your life. Seriously speaking, we'll never know what'll happen next.

3. Don't hold grudges. Grudges are unnecessary weights that slow us down in our journey through life.

4. Take on one problem at a time. It's more efficient to handle things anyway; one by one. Multi-tasking doesn't work in every situation. Jordin Sparks sang, "One step at a time, there's no need to rush."

5. Don't take on the problems of other people. Caring for people has to be done within your own limits, not that you don't want to help them.

6. Don't live in the past. Let bygones be bygones.

******************************

Once you land a job you really dig, it doesn't take long to figure out that getting ahead isn't simply about being good at what you do. In the current hyperactive work world, there are booby traps at every turn. So besides the skills, you need flexibility, street smarts, and people know-how.

Here's a few key points from this article: The 6 New Work Challenges Every Chick Will Face

1. Limit the number of times you check your digital devices outside your workplace. This creates breathing room between your job and your life but you're still a conscientious employee.

2. Distinguish between urgent messages and emails and those that can wait until you're back at work.

3. Don't unwittingly encourage coworkers to call on you anytime or offering to do nonessential projects at home. Let your boss and a few key folks know that you're available after hours.

4. Map out how you plan to contribute in the future to assure your superior or boss that you have invested in the job. This is good to be done in view of an increment or promotion.

5. Negotiate for perks that don't have a price tag. Extra weeks of vacation, more comp time, a title change, or a weekly work-at-home day are all sweet deals.

6. As soon as you realize your mistakes, offer an in-person apology to anyone involved. Hearing that you are apologetic, accept full responsibility, and understand the gravity of your gaffe will help you regain respect.

7. Practice random acts of kindness in the workplace. E.g., helping out a coworker with a deadline or covering someone's shift last minute. Doing small yet significant things can create a ripple effect of goodwill.

8. Weekly happy-hour outings or a monthly lunch to celebrate the end of a deadline can build a sense of community. If no one is excluded and you make sure the get-together doesn't turn into a gripe session, it'll reinforce the idea that everyone is on the same team and there's no reason for hostility.
