10 Lessons We Learned from The Office

By: Willow

I love The Office. I think it’s hilarious and I have watched it a million times. I think The Office can teach us a lot about how to behave, or not behave in an office setting. The following blog post is to show us the lessons we can learn our favorite characters.

Don’t be an idiot.

Know how to use technology.powerpoint

Have people you look up to professionally, and try to be more like them.

Have big dreams.

Never stop trying.

Don’t start a fire in your office. We learned this one two different episodes.


Office Safety is important. Don’t do this:

Know that you’re not perfect. Don’t be full of yourself.

Always be positive and look ahead to the exciting things in coming up in your life.

Remember that you spend a lot of time at your office so no matter what happens, make the best of it.
