​I know it's obvious, but we are all going to die, it's just a matter of when. Likewise, we will all move or leave our job whether it is our idea or not, so we might as well get the most out of it.

10 points to consider to get the most out of your working time on earth:

  1. Depending on your career choice, don't take work too seriously

  2. Your life isn't permanent, nor is your job. A tiny percentage of people will have the same job for life

  3. Beware burning bridges. The person you fall out with today may surface at another client tomorrow

  4. People do not admit their mistakes; they begrudge you knowing that they screwed up

  5. People blame you for their mistakes as they cover their backsides

  6. What goes round does come round, just be patient

  7. People change character when they change from 'buyer' to someone seeking your help. You may discover the real person

  8. You spend most your living daylight hours at work, make sure you work with people you like

  9. Job satisfaction has always been more important than money

  10. As a temp, live for today but remember that you don't know what tomorrow brings so treat people honestly and fairly
