One of the first things my honey asks me when I get home is "How was your day?" It's such a simple question, but boy, is it a loaded one. Like anyone else, some days I am filled with success stories and smiles, others are just run of the mill, and sometimes — not often, but sometimes — I can't help but share my frustrations. On the regular days I can get bogged down in the little details — I didn't respond to all the emails I wanted to, I drove instead of taking the bus, I forgot my coffee mug. It's a habit I am trying to kill for 2010 because I want to focus on the positive and ways to improve my work experience. I recently asked readers to share your in-office goals for the new year and the results mirrored my own very closely, so I've provided some tips for reaching our goals.
