Tips for W o r k i n g Hard

Tips for

W o r k i n g Hard

1. Never walk down the hall without a document in your hands.

People with documents in their hands look like hardworking employees heading for important meetings.

People with nothing in their hands look like they're heading for the cafeteria. People with a newspaper in their hand look like they're heading for the toilet.

Above all, make sure you carry loads of stuff home with you at night, thus generating the false impression that you work longer hours than you do.

2. Use computers to look busy.

Any time you use a computer, it looks like "work" to the casual observer. You can send and receive personal e-mail, calculate your finances and generally have a blast without doing anything remotely related to work.

When you get caught by your boss -and you *will* get caught - your best defense is to claim you're teaching yourself to use new software, thus saving valuable training expenses.

3. Messy desk.

Build huge piles of documents around your workspace.

To the observer, last year's work looks the same as today's work; it's volume that counts.

Pile them high and wide. If you know somebody is coming to your cubicle, bury the document you'll need halfway down in an existing stack and rummage for it when he/she arrives.

4. Voice Mail.

Never answer your phone if you have voice mail. People don't call you just because they want to give you something for nothing – they call because they want YOU to do work for THEM. That's no way to live.

If your voice mailbox has a limit on the number of messages it can hold, make sure you reach that limit frequently. One way to do that is to never erase any incoming messages. If that takes too long, send yourself a few messages. Your callers will hear a recorded message that says, "Sorry, this mailbox is full" - a sure sign that you are a hardworking employee in high demand.

5. Looking Impatient and Annoyed.

One should also always try to look impatient and annoyed to give your bosses the impression that you are always busy.

6. Appear to Work Late.

Always leave the office late, especially when the boss is still around. You could read magazines and storybooks that you always wanted to read, but have no time until late before leaving.

7. Creative Sighing for Effect.

Sigh loudly when there are many people around, giving the impression that you are very hard pressed.

8. Stacking Strategy.

It is not enough to pile lots of documents on the table. Put lots of books on the floor etc... You can always borrow from library. Thick computer manuals are the best.

9. Build Vocabulary.

Read up on some computer magazines and pick out all the jargon and new products.

Use it freely when in conversation with bosses. Remember: They don't have to understand what you say, but you sure sound impressive.

10. MOST IMPORTANTLY: DON'T forward this to your boss by mistake!!!

You can give without loving,
But you cannot love without giving.

There are no guarantees.
From the viewpoint of fear,
None are strong enough.
From the viewpoint of love,
None are necessary.

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
~ by Karen Sunde ~


Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself
But if your love and must needs have desires,
Let these be your desires:


  • To melt and be like a running brook
  • That sings its melody to the night.
  • To know the pain of too much tenderness.
  • To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
  • And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
  • To wake at dawn with a winged heart
  • And give thanks for another day of loving;
  • To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
  • To return home at eventide with gratitude;
  • And then to sleep with a prayer
  • For the beloved in your heart
  • And a song of praise upon your lips.
    ~ by Gibran Kahlil Gibran ~

    Husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it .. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
    ~ by The Holy Bible, New International Version Ephesians 5:25-33 ~

    Love me without fear
    Trust me without questioning
    Need me without demanding
    Want me without restrictions
    Accept me without change
    Desire me without inhibitions
    For a love so free....
    Will never fly away.
    ~ by Dick Sutphen ~

    Love is a burning desire,
    That makes your heart light on fire,
    Love is being with you,
    Someone saying I love you too,
    Love is your tender kiss,
    Something you don't want to miss,
    Love is you and me,
    And that is all I see.

  • If I go away
    What would still remain of me?
    The ghost within your eyes?
    The whisper in your sighs?
    You see...Believe
    And I'm always there.

    The greatest weakness of most humans
    Is their hesitancy to tell others,
    How much they love them
    While they're alive.

    And my love, let nothing come between us.
    My love for you is strong and true.

    I sought for Love
    But Love ran away from me.
    I sought my Soul
    But my Soul I couldn't see.
    Then I sought You,
    And I found all three.

    The best feelings are those that
    Have no words to describe them....
    ~ by Michelle Hammersley ~


    Let the world stop turning,
    Let the sun stop burning,
    Let them tell me love's not worth going through.
    If it all falls apart,
    I will know deep in my heart,
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    ...In this life I was loved by you.
    ~ by Bette Midler ~


    We are all born for love...

    and tied with love.

    Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.
    ~ by Oliver Wendell Holmes ~


    The minute I heard my first love story,

    They're in each other all along.

    The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one;

    Yet the light of a whole life dies, When love is done.
    ~ by Francis W. Bourdillon ~

    Things base and vile, holding no quantity,

    Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low.
    ~ by Henry Ward Beecher ~


    The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.
    ~ by Pearl S. Buck ~


    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
    ~ by 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ~


    All love that has not friendship for its base,

    Love puts the fun in together,
    The sad in apart,

    A goal, a love and a dream give you total control over your body and your life.
    ~ by John Wayne Schlatter ~


    Opposites attract, but after marriage, opposites attack. Most of the time, we are attracted to people who don't have the things that we have. Incompatibility is why we get married, but it's also used as a reason to divorce.
    Incompatibility is just a lack of communication. If we just try to love [our spouse] the way we want to be loved, we are in trouble. Unless you communicate, it's difficult to know how to love another person.
    ~ by Dr. Charles Lowery


    True love begins when nothing is looked for in return.
    ~ by Antoine De Saint-Exupery ~

    Just because someone doesn't love you
    in the way you want them to,
    doesn't mean that they don't love you
    with all they've got.
    ~ by Author unknown ~


    Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~


    Smile at each other, smile at your wife,
    smile at your husband, smile at your children,
    smile at each other--it doesn't matter who it is--
    and that will help you to grow up in greater love
    for each other.
    ~ by Mother Teresa ~


    A man falls in love through his eyes,
    a woman through her ears.
    ~ by Woodrow Wyatt ~


    Love knows no reasons,
    love knows no lies.
    Love defies all reasons,
    love has no eyes.
    But love is not blind,
    love sees but doesn't mind.
    ~ by Author unknown ~


    Love is sometimes denied, sometimes lost,
    sometimes unrecognized, but in the end,
    always found with no regrets, forever valued
    and kept treasured.
    ~ by Unknown ~


    Sometimes we let affection,
    go unspoken,
    Sometimes we let our love
    go unexpressed,
    Sometimes we can't find words to tell
    our feelings,
    Especially towards those
    we love the best.
    ~ by Author unknown ~


    The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvellous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.
    ~ by Sir Hugh Walpole ~


    Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
    ~ by Erich Fromm ~


    Think about it, there must be higher love
    Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
    Without it, life is a wasted time
    Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine.
    ~ by Steve Winwood ~


    Love does not consist in gazing at each other
    but in looking together in the same direction.
    ~ by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ~


    You come to love not by finding the perfect person,
    but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.
    ~ by Sam Keen ~


    Love is always bestowed as a gift --
    freely, willingly, and without expectation....
    We don't love to be loved; we love to love.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~


    Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.
    ~ by Elbert Hubbard ~


    The most powerful symptom of love is a tenderness which becomes at times almost insupportable.
    ~ by Victor Hugo ~


    Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he or she can put up with almost anything in the world.
    ~ by Rev Ed Hird ~


    True happiness and a fullness of joy can be found only in the tender and intimate relationships of the family. However earnestly we may seek success and happiness outside the home through work, leisure activities, or large bank accounts, we will never be fully satisfied emotionally until we develop deep and loving relationships.
    ~ by James J. Jones Ph.D. ~


    The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman's heart.
    ~ by Josiah G. Holland ~


    What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy. It's we who make it complicated.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~


    Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life.
    ~ by Charles Stanley ( A Man's Touch) ~


    From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.

    It is the things in common
    that make relationships enjoyable,
    but it is the little differences
    that make them interesting.
    ~ by Todd Ruthman ~


    Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~


    My heart to you is given:
    Oh, do give yours to me;
    We'll lock them up together,
    And throw away the key.
    ~ by Frederick Saunders ~


    The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart. It depends upon our honesty for its survival.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia (Born For Love) ~


    There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.

    The courses of true love never did run smooth.
    ~ by William Shakespeare ~


    But true love is a durable fire,
    In the mind ever burning,
    Never sick, never old, never dead,
    From itself never turning.
    ~ by Sir Walter Raleigh ~


    Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
    Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
    They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
    ~ by Flavia Weedn ~
