An example of sour milk is bad attitude, as with some employees

Manage Mentor
How to Get to the Top

Dinner at home can be a great ritual during which you can learn business and life lessons, says Jeffrey J. Fox in How to Get to the Top ( http://www.landmarkonthenet.com/).

That “you can’t unsour the milk” is one such lesson. “You can’t go back in time. You can’t prevent what has already happened… And you can’t quit,” explains the author. “You must counterpunch. Do not waste time bemoaning your troubles.”

An example of sour milk is bad attitude, as with some employees, he says. “It is hard, if not impossible to fix,” frets Fox. “Part ways, and go forward.” Another ‘family’ lesson is to gain confidence by acting like you own the place. “When you walk into the office, into a meeting, onto the stage, act like you own the place. Act as if you are in your complete comfort zone.” That way you are more likely to be ‘at ease, calm, courteous’ rather than be arrogant, says Fox.
