    Avoidance Can be Good

    As a productive employee, we need to avoid prejudice. This attitude is contagious. When one person is picked on or put down, coworkers willingly join in this destructive behavior. Production is definitely reduced. Healthy attitudes are damaged following the put down by the perpetrator and the victim. Headaches, absenteeism and upset stomachs mysteriously appear in the work force.

    Another trait to be avoided is closed mindedness when it comes to changes in the workplace. Each time the manager/foreman brings up a new way to improve production; we fight it like a plague. Often comfort proves more important than the goose who lays the golden egg paycheck.

    Avoiding a negative attitude will be advantageous to our happiness and career advancement. It is almost impossible to be positive when we keep spouting we can’t, it’s never been done before, everyone will hate us, or if we do that we will be the laughing stock of the plant. These excuses will chase happiness and good health away.

    Avoidance can be a good thing!
