“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”
― Francis Bacon, The Essays
Think about the things you aspire your colleagues would say about you when you’re not there. You would hope its things like “fearless”, “a leader not a follower”, “creative”, ”not afraid to push the envelope” and “practices good hygiene”.
Now think about all the things you could do to make people think this about you. Landing the big account, successfully launching a new product, implementing the new process that several others before you weren’t able to, etc... Chances are opportunities like that come by once in a blue moon.
How about an opportunity to show off your creative chops and stand out from the crowd on a weekly basis? Yes, I’m talking about Casual Fridays. Use your wardrobe as your vehicle to demonstrate your creativity, individuality and fearlessness. Be bold and use the combination of fit, colour and emerging brands to show off how connected and edgy you are.
