Working in the same building as others

It’s better to ask dumb questions, than to make dumb mistakes.

So, how important is it to work with others that you see and socialize with?

I am talking about long-term job satisfaction. Like friendships, loyalty and such. It is very important, right?

If you have no plans on working with others in the same building or room, then how can you make sure you are getting similar social work life?

Anyone work alone, and consider themselves successful? How are you able to continually work long hours?

Yowza! Here is my thing: I recently made an action plan to help make me work more, and do it without other co-workers.

Here are some of the things I am now doing:

  1. Daily checklist in notepad, using “x” as a check
  2. More attention to appearance. E.g., shaving beard more
  3. More socializing outside of work and at online forums.
  4. I recite some words before work. E.g., “I want to be a millionaire as much as someone drowning wants to breath.”
  5. I am more committed to keeping to a set schedule with time slots. E.g., I sleep at least 5 1/2 hours, in a 9 hour span.

So far, I have to say it is working, and I recommend others do the same. Just focus on looking for and doing the things that help you work more.

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.”

Stay low key. Not everyone needs to know everything about you.

Oh, and I exercise in the mornings, to let my body cool down before bed. This helps me to minimize getting headaches.

It’s important for me to occasionally see people in real life because it keeps me grounded. It’s easy to get lost thinking there’s nothing more to life than work. I also need other people’s perspectives to help me test new ideas and keep my mind sharp.
