Seriously, this is not a fake enthusiasm at work image. I really do get excited about cross-browser compatibility! I love work when things come together like they should. Especially in IT, which seems to be a constant battle of things breaking down.
I hope you are not in a situation of trying to fake enthusiasm at work, being happy, or pretending to care. There’s gotta be a bright spot in there somewhere! Even worse, no one wants to be around a coworker who is clearly faking it or lamenting about how bad their job is.
Ride the benefits of the gratitude wave: name one thing about your job that you are thankful for. OK, I’ll start: my boss cares. Not everyone thanks me, but for those who do, I am very touched. I have coworkers who are amazing to watch in action, I respect their good work and it is an honor to work with them.
