IDK what to do guys, or if this is me just discovering how I work optimally, but by Friday afternoons my brain is completely fried.
It's honestly depressing, but not sure what else to do to "energize" myself. It's just that after 4 focused days of work, I need time to decompress. My decision making skills are fatigued and I need a break. Anyone else? Should we have 4 day work weeks?
Ok, so my friend recently found out at work that they are doing a big company retreat this summer at a national park, however, co-workers have to room together. It will be at a hotel, but unclear if it will be nice. Oh and they are keeping it guys room with guys, girls room with girls.
But I was so taken aback by this when my friend told me! It's weird to have a mandatory retreat where you HAVE to room with someone you work with right? Has anyone dealt with this or have good excuses they've used to get out of work retreats in the before times? My friend is dreading this.
Hello and for legal reasons this is completely hypothetical.
If you were to want to procrastinate while working (HYPOTHETICALLY) what is your go-to site? Are you a shopper? A puzzle solver? A news/Twitter scroller? (shudders)
In college I was all about Sporcle. But I've graduated into the next stage of my life... what do you waste time doing?
What is the most appealing OOO message you've ever received? I am going OOO for a weekend trip in a few days and it got me thinking of how I want to approach my bounce back email.
- Personality! I think it's nice to show I'm not a bot! I'm fun!
- Nothing weird though. Once I saw someone say they were "vibin in Lala" (aka on vacation in Los Angeles) and I almost threw my computer across the room.
- Should the subject be straight forward? Keep the fun stuff to the body of the email?
- I think short and sweet is best, don't you?
I will never know how to do this without seeming/feeling obnoxious, but what's the best way to write an email for someone who hasn't returned your first email? Is there a way to do it that's charming?
You’re at a networking event. You’re alone. You see a group of people talking and see an opportunity to step in. What do you say? What’s your ice breaker that helps start conversation without making things awkward?
There's a lot of noise out there on LinkedIn, Instagram memes, etc., trying to tell you how to run your career and life, but what's the best business advice you ever received that actually pays off?
After seeing in another post that someone hates emails ending with the sign-off “best”:
How SHOULD we sign off our emails? What’s a good way to end a note without seeming weird, too cheery, too serious, etc.?
Hear me out guys, I was facetiming my friend the other day and complained to her briefly about easy it is for people to ignore emails these days ...
and then she told me that she installed an extension on her email that lets her see immediately when someone clicks open her sent emails, aka a tracker for how long someone is possibly ghosting you and for how long!
i got a little freaked, though i hid it well from the friend. i personally feel like having something like that installed would make it more nerve-wracking for me.
what do you guys think? and what are some cool if not less intense add on's or extensions you have for your virtual mailbox?
For me, I have to do something physical. Either a workout, run, yoga, etc. I need to move my body and sweat.
Besides the health benefits, it's my way of telling my mind to unplug and relax a bit after the day is over and helps me transition to whatever I need to do that evening.
