Work Sucks! Be Calm.

How to Work Better
Fischli/Weiss at the Tate Modern (apologies for the blurry shot)

 

When I was uploading photos from my semester at London, I came across this poster I’d seen at the Tate Modern. It’s a listing of 10 commandments on how to work better (from the artists Fischli & Weiss).

After a week like this one (needless to say, work was tough this week), sometimes it’s nice to think of ways to make your time at work better. I’d also like to point out that these aren’t just commandments on how to work better, but that they can be applied to living life in general—especially the following rules:

  • Learn to listen
  • Learn to ask questions
  • Accept change as inevitable
  • Admit mistakes
  • Be calm
  • Smile
So next time you’re in an office or a cubicle and wondering how to work better, take a moment to breathe, and try to remember these rules on how to work better
