Ruth Mlllett Ask Yourself Not Your Boss A boss, speaking to a group of women attending a convention of the National Secretaries Association, advised them that they should occasionally ask the boss "Is there anything more I should be doing?" It would have been beter advice if he had told them to ask themselves that question — instead of putting it to the boss—and If the world "could" have been substituted for "should." When we ask another person if there is anything we can do or if there is anything MORE we can do, the answer is rarely a constructive suggestion. Yet by offering to do something or to do something more we fee! mighty pleased with ourselves. After all, we've offered; we've showed our willingness to be more helpful. What more can we be expected to do? But If instead of asking someone else. "What can I do?" or "What more can I do?" we ask the question of ourselves, we can usually come up with more than one constructive answer. For we can see what needs to be done. We know what we haven't done that we could do and we, beter than anyone else, know what our capabilities are. So whether you want to be more useful to a boss, more helpful to a friend, or a beter wife—the question should be "Is there anything more I COULD be doing?" But you don't put the question to your boss, or to your friend or to your husband. You put it to yourself, if you really want an answer instead of the reassurance that nothing more is needed from you. When you drop your lipstick case on a dirty floor, don't.waste time •fretting. Simply head for the nearest supply of soap and water and rinse it off. After a thorough cleansing and polishing with a dry tissue, the case will look even better.
