A Fun Way to Change Things Up

A few years ago, during a particularly challenging time in my career, I decided I needed a way to find some joy in my work again. I dreaded going to work. My positive attitude tricks were failing. I knew I needed to break out the big guns to win this battle of workplace blues.  Suddenly,… Continue Reading →

Don’t Be a Joy-Killer

I have a confession to make. In the past, I used to be very judgemental about what other people did for fun. When someone told me all about what a good time they had, I’m sure they could see it on my face as I thought, “What’s so fascinating about collecting antiques?” or “What a… Continue Reading →

Are Grudges Keeping You Down?

I recently spoke to a colleague, let’s call her Sage. We were having a great discussion about the future of pharmacy. As we chatted, the topic shifted to Sage’s past employer. She had an incident with a former employer that led to her leaving the company. Her boss didn’t threaten or harass Sage, rather, he… Continue Reading →
