“What is true by lamplight is not always true by sunlight.”
– French Proverb
At night, things can seem one way; in the morning, quite another. So, too, at work can context make a supreme difference in the perception, meaning and effect of what you say and do.
The casual words you commonly use with your friends may not be appropriate at work. Likewise, the same gift you give to a cousin may be an actual crime if given to a prospective customer. And, too, what you share with your manager may not be appropriate to share with your staff.
Context differentiates everything, and these days, seemingly small and subtle differences in words and deeds can make or break a workplace relation, or even a career. Don’t be paranoid, but do be prudent in all you say and do in the workplace.
