An Emotional Intelligence boosting tip: Post jokes at work. Warning, however, do not post funny stuff about bosses.
As noted in yesterday’s post, work has acquired almost as nasty a reputation as the F— Word,and even that word has less angst attached. The angst of having to work is particularly strong among those emerging from childhood into the everyday world of work; sad, not necessary, and adding to the idea that work is something to avoid.
As Drew Carey noted about work, “Hate your job, there’s a support group for that, its called Everybody.”
Those who survive work best laugh lots. Hoping the quotes in today’s Poster Coach gave you a chuckle or two.

Disclaimer one: Emotional Fitness Training is not therapy. Even the most learned researchers and therapists quarrel about much. Take their advice and mine carefully. Don’t just listen to your heart, but also think; don’t just think, listen to your heart. Heart and head working together increase the odds you will find useful advice amid all the promises and hopes pushed at you be others. As others have noted, take what seems useful, leave the rest. Disclaimer two: Forgive my grammatical errors If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here; I will understand if you don’t follow, like or share what like me. Not only am I dealing with an aging brain, but all of my life I have been plagued by dysgraphia–a learning disability, Some of my posts might be peppered with bad spelling, poor punctuation, and worse words that make no sense. If you want to hang in with me, thank you; you are kind. If a post doesn’t make sense or bugs you too much, stop reading, I will understand.
