What does always being the "Good Employee" cost you?

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, December 6, 2015 5:23 AM

Good to know! Pleasing every body all the time can kill you! And they live on considering yourself at times is not selfish but life saving!  Your/our own!  Has anyone ever said if you die I want replace you because there just is no one who can do the job just like you! Then you find yourself bedding A day off and find they have your replacement on speed dial. It's excellent to do your best but then again we all know our best will not please everybody as there are those who are not pleased with themselves and you will kill you trying to please them when it's impossible to do. They do not know what pleases them.

Learning to Say "No"

Learning to Say "No" | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

They could also be external forces that "need" your help. Saying no does not mean you are weak, it just means you know your limits.

‘Arbejdsglaede’: The Art of Being Happy At Work | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
‘Arbejdsglaede’, a word found only in Scandinavia, is something that should be implemented in every workplace around the world.
