24. If you are planning on leaving work an hour early to beat the inclement weather, so is everyone else in the entire county.

25. Be selfish and don't (fully) depend on anyone else. Nobody is going to have your interests in mind more than you.



If there is an opportunity that you're interested in, you have to pursue it. If someone promised to do something for you, follow up with them. Don't assume that they'll just remember to do it. it may be importatnt to you, but to them it's just another task they have to remember.

10. If you are preparing a risky or possibly volatile e-mail, DO NOT put any names in the To and Cc lines until you are absolutely sure you want to do it.

Or better yet - save it as a draft and sleep on it overnight. I almost always go back the next day and tone it down......

Same goes for reports finished at COB...A final review after a few hours is always better.

16) it's okay to say "I don't know.

And never ever eat the last donut.

And don't cut the last donut in half and leave the remains on the break table all day...

44. Never increase your mileage more than 10% per week or 5% on a given day. That way you mitigate the risk to your knees. :)

45. When raising issues with a customer (such as a cost adder, non-conformance, concession request, etc.) when at all possible speak to them in person or on the phone. It is easier for someone to say no or hold their ground via e-mail. People are less inclined to be bull-headed when speaking directly with another person.
