Pointless & Awesome Things Men Need To Know This Week [01.05.17]

Forget about the frivolities of the daily news.

Forget about the frivolities of the daily news. Pointless and awesome is a place where distracted gentlemen can gather and find solace amongst facts that will serve them zero purpose in life. Okay, maybe a small purpose like some bar banter for that hottie in your crossfit class who could probably bench your bodyweight.

But we digress. Here are the most pointless and interesting facts for the week.

What To Do When Your Boss Hates You

Do you walk into the office with smiles and come home in tears? If so then Fast Company has the right advice for you.

Stop Dwelling On What Your Boss thinks Of You: For starters it will drive you insane. After a performance review don’t read into the notes too much as they are usually quite literal. It is what it is on the surface according to Fast Company’s spokesperson who has been both boss and employee.

Bring It Up First: If the issue is clearly evident and consistent then it’s time to step up and do something. Setting up a frank discussion is the way to go especially if your boss is the non-confrontational type to a fault or needs a bit of a push to open up the communication channels.

Form Allegiances: Failing the former and admitting that your boss is unapproachable will render you with one last hope. Find other mentors in your organisation.
