8 Rules for Getting Ahead at Work
According to Kelly Love Johnson, author of skirt! Rules for the Workplace: An Irreverent Guide to Advancing Your Career, here are 8 rules to get ahead at work.
  1. Control your temper.  Learn how to not get angry in the office. 
  2. Listen, don't talk.  You may be surprised at what you learn.
  3. Love change.  Don't resist it.  Change is good!
  4. Shoot for perfection.  Don't rush, spell check and double check your facts.
  5. Be your own measure.  Don't go on facebook just because everyone else do.  Do what you think is right and be different.
  6. Dress the part.  Dress professionally but don't forget to express your individuality.
  7. Lead before you are asked.  This is a great way to show you are capable of a greater challenge!  And why not have a little practice at being in charge?
  8. Don't watch the clock.  I know its tempting but your boss will notice.
I love these little words of wisdom.  What is your advice for getting ahead at work?
