What's on My Mind Today: While dealing with the depression, job loss and shortages, you have to work harder to succeed. I don't care if you flip burgers, work at the grocery story, etc. do the job you were hired to do to the best of your ability.
The fact you have a job is an important one but remember if you are let go or terminated there is someone in the ranks waiting for their chance. Come to work early, ready to start at your starting time, respect the rules and your co-workers around you.
Don't do it because the boss is watching but do it for yourself. But a work ethic you will be proud of. Make your accomplishments memorable in case your next employer calls to see what kind of employee you were. Don't back down when offered more responsibility. Take it on. Mentor your peers to ensure everyone succeeds.
Its important to help one another because one day it may be you who needs the help and the kindness you extended will be returned to you double.
