    NYT: There’s a lot of advice out there about how to find the “perfect job.” But getting a job at all is no easy feat — and even if you manage to get one you like, you’re all but certain to have bad days. Enter another strain of career advice: how to help you handle your job better, including the parts of it that might not be perfect.

    At the Harvard Business Review, Greg McKeown brings up a framework for getting along with your coworkers. He writes: “To develop meaningful and mature relationships at work or at home we need to develop two filters. The first filter protects you from other people. The second filter protects other people from you.” This means not letting others’ criticism get you down too much, but also being careful not to unload too much of your own criticism or ill-feeling on others. When both filters are working well, Mr. McKeown writes, “we have the ability to know and be known. We can listen without risk of permanent damage and speak without risk of offending. We can navigate complex relationships because we can adapt without losing sight of who we are.”

    as long as this incarmation of capitalism is allowed to spin the status quo established by the elite will continue to govern. Their profit is put ahead of people's well being/happiness and prosperity. how to deal with co-workers, how about a four day, six hour work day? when people aren't fucking stressed out of their minds shitting their pants over what the overlords are gonna do/say over the slightest of fuck ups they will be more calm, and a hell of a lot less critical. revolt and demand change, that is how ones job is gonna be more tolerable. capitalism is a joke (well not for the 1% running the damn ship)

    Damn, you really are smitten with the Times. Take a step back and consider what you're looking at. This is mindless filler.

    I don't hate my job at all. It's a little boring at times but work is really about relationships with your co-workers. If you really hate your job, then what are you doing to change things?

    I have to agree with some of the above post however he should of stated "corrupt, crony capitalism" rather than trashing American capitalism in general. It is the end result of that disastrous failure known as supply side economics that has caused American capitalism to become so heartless and so immoral. I also support the concept of a shorter work week of 4 days however I cannot accept the six hour a day portion. We Americans are among the most overworked among modern societies with only South Koreans working longer hours. Money should not dictate everything because there is much more to life than working and making money.

    This means so much. If you're having a crappy time at work you need to either change the environment or not let the environment affect you.

    So simple but it could make a big difference.
