5 Advice Your Trini Dad Gave You About Your Career
If you’re lucky to have a Trinbagonian dad, he probably gave you advice about your career in his local colloquial tongue.
1. Gopaul luck eh Seepaul luck
In life and in the workplace not everyone would have the same opportunities. And similarly what your colleague would ‘get away with’ in work, you would not ‘get away with’.
2. Common sense make before book sense
Not all the knowledge that you need for your job comes from formal learning. Lessons from your informal schooling can take you very far in the workplace.
3. Don’t shit wey yuh does eat
In the workplace it’s not a good idea to mix business with pleasure. What dad means here is don’t date anyone from your office, or don’t ‘lime’ with your boss.
4. Wey horse reach jackass does reach… and pass
Don’t study who more qualified than you or who knows the job better than you. You can beat the odds and become even more successful than that person.
5. Fire de wuk – Quit a job.
And our favourite ‘fire de wuk’ .. time to quit your job.
