One of the benefits about retirement is I don’t have to sell or prove myself to somebody. That somebody could be my boss, customer, or alliance. The only person that I need to satisfy is me. Which allows me to focus on what is important to me and not someone else’s priorities.
Below are some of the common pretenses I had come across [along with their real meanings]:
I am a hard worker [as long as I am getting paid].
I am motivated/ driven [just give me that raise/ promotion].
I am a team-player [to the extend of others do not cross me].
I am passionate about my work [until quitting time].
What other examples have you heard?
