Recession-Proof Yourself

Start by not taking your job lightly. Employees have long had the upper hand in organizations. They’ve been naming their hours, salary, and title. During a recession, your boss is in the driver’s seat, and you’ll have to reapply for your job every day.

How? Pay attention to things that tick him or her off, such as showing up late, calling in sick, or doing shoddy work.

Each day, focus on what you’re giving, not what you’re getting. And do the opposite of what others are doing. When your coworkers are dragging, hustle. When everyone’s complaining, smile like you’ve
just found the Hope Diamond. Be stronger, tougher, and more positive, and you’ll stand out above the crowd.
