A Passport for Employees

I’ll tell you, I’m a list person.  Can cover a lot of ground with a bulleted list.  Found a great list the other day posted on the fridge at Webster University where I serve as an academic advisor and associate professor entitled, A Passport for Life by Regina Brett.  Thought the idea of it was really cool and of course, went to check it out on web.  Found out that Regina is not 90 years old as the printed article states and her passport has 50 things on it (for turning 50), not 45.

That’s okay.  Still liked the list and thought it would be great to convert it to a passport list for employees.  Employees could use a little direction now and then, don’t cha think? 🙂

So here goes for the top 10:

  1. Working here isn’t always fair, but it’s still pretty good.
  2. Save for your retirement – the 401k won’t do it for you.
  3. No one is in charge of your happiness – you are.
  4. Everything can change in the blink of an eye; think merger. Have resume ready.
  5. If a work relationship has to be secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
  6. What other people think of you IS your business; get feedback.
  7. Make a friend.
  8. When it comes to going after the right things, don’t take no for an answer, but…
  9. You don’t have to win every argument; just pick the ones worth fighting for.
  10. Show up and make the most of your job!
