Are you asking to be fired?
October 11, 2018

You want to avoid getting laid off. Who wouldn’t? So don’t raise your hand and say, “Pick me.”

Tim SandersThat’s advice courtesy of Tim Sanders, a motivational speaker and another favorite guest on the talk show. Tim says twice as many people are laid off for having a negative attitude than for not performing on the job. That rings true, doesn’t it? You can train someone to do better work. To inspire them to be a better kid about it? Who has time for that?

And if the bullies in your workplace seem to be getting ahead at the expense of nice guys left behind, you might take as much comfort in another Tim Sanders gem as I do: “It’s the middle of the movie.”
