I Want to Eat Dinner & Party. No, Not a Dinner Party

If you work in an office, then leave said office, but then hang out with people from that office, have you actually left the office?

Here’s a visual study guide of sorts to help you answer this question.

And here’s the uninvited, yet always entertaining supplemental material that serves as an assisting resource to the study guide.

If you work in the right office, then the office will never leave you.

And that can be a thoroughly entertaining reality.

If You Can’t Beet Him…

It’s the weekend!

Now, it may be tempting to take this opportunity to act a little differently than we do throughout the workweek. That’s completely normal and a good thing. However, be careful not to completely change who we are…

yeah–scratch that if it’s as hilarious as one of Jim’s pranks. It is quite difficult to beat a flashback from The Office (U.S.) on a Friday.

For all the reasons of why I don’t want to work with a person like Dwight K. Schrute, there just seems to be more reasons for why I really want to work with a person like Dwight K. Schrute. Why? Because concentrating some of my creative energy and resources on epic pranks would be crazy awesome.

Fact.

Happy New Year’s Eve (Eve)

New Year’s Eve is upon us.

2016 was a roller coaster year, filled with ups and downs that, at times, changed on a daily basis. Coupled with the occasional (and necessary!) look back at nostalgia, whether it be last month, last year, 5, 10, 20 or more years ago, life is a future-looking endeavor. Tomorrow is a new day. It just so happens that tomorrow’s tomorrow will ring in a brand new year:

2017.

Along with remembering and building on your successes in 2016, also take the opportunity of a new year to recall your shortcomings and to not let people walk all over you if you happen to have a personable demeanor. Instead, make the necessary pivot without losing your core character and run your life like a, what’s the word?

What do I mean? Jim Halpert, help me out.

Service with a smile.

TGI(A)F

Thank Goodness it’s (Almost) Friday.

Have you ever had one of those Thursdays when you’re at work doing serious tasks and something breaks your concentration? We’ve all been there, particularly when we’re cognizant of the fact that only one day separates us from the weekend. The problem is we can’t allow ourselves to break our 9-5 “character.” This lapse in protocol can come from a big, dramatic distraction or it can be a few declarative words from your offbeat coworker.

Dwight always had the perfect beet for comedy.

Fact: You need the strength of 11 full-grown men to get through that clip without laughing.
