5 of Wands: Can’t We All Just Get Along?
The card of the day is the 5 OF WANDS.
Can’t we all just get along? Are you with me or against me? The walls have ears.
Some people you work with will never recognize or acknowledge your effort or achievements. So be it. You know you are working hard, so just continue to put your best foot forward and be as civil as you can be when you are working with others as part of a team. If you work with someone who likes to talk smack about other team members, do not engage in the gossip (even if you have something to contribute). It’s good to land somewhere in the middle, Switzerland.
My advice is to: Smile, know when to stay silent, and hold your head up high.
Be sure to document all of your project achievements by making sure your portfolio, resume, and list of recommendations are all up to date. Maybe you need to let your manager know what a good job you’ve been doing ( if that person doesn’t already know). Take comfort in the fact that at least you have the skills to handle your piece of the puzzle, even if others do not.
