(Before you actually make a hole in the office floor)

Things to remember:

If you regard yourself as being unique, without any particular status, and if you never patronize anyone, you will never offend.

You are not in command. You are only conveying someone else’s wishes.

Be friendly with everyone, but don’t confide in anyone.

Deaf, dumb and blind – Never show interest in things which don’t concern you.

A good day’s work
Don’t leave until tomorrow what you can do today. If you tell yourself you can’t cope, you won’t. With this in mind sheer necessity will get you organized, like the man who didn’t know he could swim until he fell off the pier.

Being fed up
Don’t go off looking for another job just because you are fed up with the one you have. Maybe you just need a break; maybe the boss is getting on your nerves.
