I'm a HUGE fan of The Office television series and was really sad to see it end last week. I think most of us could find something about the inner workings of Dunder Mifflin that we can relate to: an awkward co-worker, inappropriate interoffice relationships, hurt feelings over promotions.
I think the biggest work life takeaway from the show centers on how pivotal co-workers became in each others lives. While many of us strive for work life balance, a giant part of our day is spent with co-workers. It really makes a difference when you like the people you work with. In the end, the folks in The Office were a big family -- even as people came and left. Isn't that the atmosphere every workplace would want to create? I don't know about you, but my life feels more balanced when I enjoy going into work.
I want to share a link from Glamour Magazine called 13 Things The Office Gave Us. What are the work life lessons you took away from the show?
