How’s that ritual working for you?
Rituals are the key to success. I don’t have to tell you that, because your personal ritual of reading this column regularly has taught you how to make your boss think you love your job when you’re desperate to get out.
You’ve also learned how to convince co-workers that you’re a hard worker, when you actually spend most days doing absolutely nothing. Clearly, reading this column is a ritual that has paid off.
Sue Shellenbarger would not be surprised. She is the Work and Family columnist for The Wall Street Journal, and in the recently published “The Power of a ‘Project Beard’ and Other Office Rituals,” she reminds us that “rituals are common among gamblers and sports figures, from wearing a lucky shirt to blow on dice to counting dribbles before a free flow.”
