“When a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it” — Edgar Watson Howe

How to be Smarter: Have you ever heard your boss complain? Maybe not. Have you ever heard your boss’s boss complain? Probably not. What about the CEO of your company? Definitely not. The farther up the chain of command you go, the less you hear complaining because it’s the people with the best attitudes that rise to the top. If you want to be at the top of the chain someday, you won’t get there by complaining.

How to be Prettier: I have professed my love for Bandolino shoes before; they are a great blend of affordability, walk-ability, and style. These are a nice mixture of work-appropriate feminine comfort, and they come in a huge variety of colors (I like the brown/dark brown, wine, and black suede).

How to be (less) Awkward: In general, the boyfriend or girlfriend of the driver gets the front seat on long drives; the exception would be if venturing into unfamiliar territory, and another passenger knows the route or area better.

  1. I know some people at my office that could use the smarter….

  2. Love the Bandolinos!

  3. Great point about not splitting up couples. Also, I think that it’s good to act like the person above you, as long as it’s not too obvious. If you act like your boss, chances are your boss will see you worthy of promotion. This needs to be done subtly, but correctly done it’s a real winner move.

  4. I love the smarter post. It’s something I’ve never really thought about, but it’s extremely true.
