Dressing For the Job You Want

Are You More Productive When You Look Better?

This morning I took a little bit more time getting ready, putting more effort into picking an outfit and dabbing on some eyeliner. Normally, I would just put on a pair of glasses, grab whatever clean clothes I have, and rush off to work. Now that I look a little bit more polished, I suddenly feel more productive (although the morning coffee probably helped!).This makes me think that there is some truth behind the "dress for the job you want" advice.

I'm not saying you have to look like a beauty queen, but even just spending a little bit more time during your morning routine might make you look more well turned out. Do you feel that you get more work done when you try harder with your appearance?
