My Last Day at Work

  1. Do your work: Apart from doing my work and completing tasks on time. I tried as much as possible to be excited about tasks. I was excited to get things done and produce stellar work. I did not try to con others into doing what I could do. I also went out of my way to do things that I didn’t need to do, like manning the front desk when the administrative team was short staffed.
  2. Smile: I love people and the fact that my face is very expressive helps me show how much I love people. I love meeting new people and having the weirdest conversations. I didn’t intentionally think to smile often, frankly it’s my personality to smile and laugh sometimes even when it’s not appropriate, but I do know that smiling lifts my spirits and others too.
  3. Dress well: There’s something about dressing appropriately and well that elevates your mood, posture, and confidence. I prepared what I would wear the next day before going to bed. Sometimes, I would try different combinations on before going to bed! Wearing clothes that fit in with our policies and regulations made me feel good and feel like I fit right in. Also, dressing up sets you up to be taken for meetings, even in the president’s office with no reservations from your boss or supervisor.
