Starting a new job can be stressful. New environment. New methodology. New people. Please try to remember to allow yourself room to adjust to your new situation. Please remember to breathe. Have faith in yourself, even when it seems as though you are messing everything up all the time. Learn from your mistakes and use the experience to improve yourself. Take risks even if things don’t turn out as you would have expected or wanted. If you don’t try, you won’t know either way. Your nerves tend to get the better of you sometimes… Kill them with cyanide or something equally poisonous. Remember that a good sense of humour is very important and will get you through the more difficult moments. Hopefully. Be realistic – don’t expect too much too soon. Remember that you are human and imperfect (regardless of the lies told to you by your superiority complex, your delusions of grandeur, and other agents of fancy). Above all, work hard and do your best. Don’t forget this note!
RIP John Bardon (1939-2014). God bless.
Two’s Company — the late Elaine Stritch together with the late Sir Donald Sinden. In the sitcom Two’s Company, Sir Donald Sinden played an English butler, Robert, to Elaine Stritch’s American character, Dorothy. Much of the humour was derived from the culture clashes between Robert’s very stiff-upper-lip Britishness and Dorothy’s devil-may-care New York outlook on life.
