Market Me First - The Positive Career and Work Action Plan Market Yourself | Make Money | Be Happy

------------------ In Black and White -------------------------------

Since 2005. Market yourself. Find better work. Make a name. Survive Layoffs. Be successful.



At my last position, my next cubicle neighbor was a Music Head. That is, someone who cannot function without his tunes.

He brought a boom box to work his second day on the job. He carefully set it up in his cubicle, turned it on and went about his day.

He never turned the volume up high, but being in such close proximity, I was able to come to know his various tastes in music. Metal one day, hip hop the next.

Music Head never sang along, he just played his music and worked.

The problem? Broadcast. Suppose I was as helpless without my music? Would the volume of my music cause his to increase and thereby eventually disrupt the whole office? Further, who asked to hear his music?

The solution? Why didn't this guy adapt and play MP3's on his computer with a headset? Why had he not purchased an MP3 player like normal people in the 21st century?

Nevertheless, Music Head did not last long. He was a contractor, so he finished his work and moved on. And took his boom box with him.

Think about this at your current position. Swap out music with something else you bring to work; your perfume, your lunch, etc.

What are you saying to your cubicle neighbors about yourself?
