Office politics is a reality workers face. It’s not fun. However it’s not the reason you exist for your job it’s the end user, the customer, the client, the student, the volunteer. People who benefit from your work should be the primary mission of anyone on the job. Yes politics is a real issue in any office situation that can discourage us but it shouldn’t deter us from accomplishing our goals or performing tasks at hand. Keep on working and keep the main thing the main thing and hopefully that will take care of business.
