Get Up Everyone! 2015-12-05


As a former worker in an office environment, I began contemplating what wise sage advice I could pass on to the wide-eyed-beaming-smiley-faced associates embarking on a career in what I refer to as a data factory.  I have summed up my 45-years of concrete jungle wisdom into what I have monikered ‘The Up Series’. ‘Up’ is the common thread connecting all knowledge you need to survive during your workforce life. Feel free to take notes.  You’re welcome… Sandy


2015-12-05-UpWelcome to the New Neighbor Orientation ‘Up’ Series. Here will you learn the importance of each ‘Up’ segment and how it fits into the company’s philosophies and goals. This series is offered to all new employees, as well as, any employee who needs a refresher.

    • Kiss Up – Learn how to make your office relationships work for you. Improve those worker/management interactions.
    • Buck Up – Learn how to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and tackle difficult assignments with grace and ease while hiding your inner resentment.
    • Suck Up – Learn how to deal with overwhelming workloads and not become a victim of depression, or worse, office rage (aka going postal)
    • Shut Up – Learn when to say ‘when’. Knowing when not to say anything to cover up the fact that you don’t know anything. Giving the impression you are just worldly and wise in your quiet contemplation.
    • Get Up – When to get up and leave a situation alone, as well as, how to attain that all too annoying ‘get up and go’ peppiness we all need. What we call the ‘Up with People’ attitude.
    • Put Up – How to graciously give all your spare dollars and change to office lunches, gifts, cards, balloons, plants, parties, school fund raisers, etc. and not feel as though you’re being held hostage to the ‘Put Up’ syndrome – even though you are.


Note: The order in which these are listed is not necessarily the order of importance.  Each portion is studied and used separately or in conjunction with another portion as deemed necessary and/or appropriate for an individual situation as it arises in the course of doing business.  For instance, you may have a situation where the ‘Kiss Up’ and ‘Put Up’ sections would both be appropriate.
