Do I have to like them?

You aren’t always going to like everyone you work with. I’ve known this for a while. This truth goes against a deeply engrained belief I have that the opposite should be true. But the fact is, we just don’t. So how can you still hum along in your work environment when you’re distracted by these ‘others’ who just seem to be planted there to get in the way of your fully aligned career bliss?

Are You Hearing the Signs?

I get beeped at a lot. Usually when I’m attempting to make a left turn. The kind where there’s no arrow and I’m hoping a car doesn’t fly out of nowhere and sideswipe me as I brave the open space.  So I tend to be cautious and wait a couple of extra seconds. Other cars don’t like this. On one recent occasion where a driver expressed his dismay, it got kind of awkward.  He followed me through the turn and then ended up pulling into the same parking lot. Turns out he was going to the same recreation facility. I
