The fact is you spend more time with your colleagues than you do your own family, so it’s important you take them into account when it comes to your office behaviors. Below are four commonly used phrases you should leave out of your workplace vernacular.“I really don’t feel like it.”You will be asked to take on many tasks at work that you honestly have no desire to tackle. Guess what? Your colleagues don’t care that you aren’t in the mood or don’t feel like getting the job done. No one likes a lazy worker and chances are if you come across as sluggish and uncooperative, you’ll get a bad reputation and it will be communicated to your superior.“That’s not fair.”Unfortunately, sometimes life just isn’t fair but what’s critical is how you overcome obstacles and challenges. Instead of vocalizing the issues you have with something in the office, be positive and enthusiastic. An employee that is always airing their grievances will be looked at as a complainer and a pessimist.“Did you hear about…”No matter if your office is large or small, there will always be opportunity for you to get caught up in gossip. Don’t be the instigator in such situations; instead, when gossip starts, remove yourself from the conversation and get back to work. A gossip can’t be trusted, so unless you want to burn bridges, avoid catty communications.“I don’t make enough money for this.”One surefire way to not get a promotion is to complain to colleagues about your pay. Your coworkers will view you as unappreciative and distracted, and your boss will get wind of your money complaints. If you feel strongly that you deserve a raise, instead of casually complaining to others, schedule a more formal sit-down with your boss and discuss with them reasons why you feel your compensation does not reflect your job performance.

Andy Murray remained on course for a fourth Queen’s title after battling back to record an impressive 3-6 7-6(2) 6-4 win over Gilles Muller in the last eight.The Brit was outplayed in the opening set as some brutal serves and groundstrokes saw Muller storm into the lead.A cagy second set failed to produce a single break point as it went to a tie-break, with a fired up Murray snatching an early mini-break with a neat forehand down the line – the catalyst for the top seed to restore parity.An early break in the deciding set was ultimately enough as Murray marshalled his opponent with a full armoury of shots to seal victory in one hour and 56 minutes. The world number three will face either Viktor Troicki or John Isner in the semi-finals.“He started well and I didn’t quite know what to do on the return game,” Murray told Eurosport. “But when I started to return better, he seemed more anxious to come into the net and I was able to get myself into the rallies.It’s a good win for me.” Murray also played down a possible hamstring injury, insisting that his concern was merely precautionary with Wimbledon on the horizon. Earlier, third seed Milos Raonic became the latest casualty in London after losing 4-6 6-3 7-5 to France’s Gilles Simon. Simon will contest a final spot with South Africa’s Kevin Anderson, who edged Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 7-6(7) 7-5.Results from the Queen’s Men’s Singles Quarter-final matches on Friday 1-Andy Murray (Britain) beat Gilles Muller (Luxembourg) 3-6 7-6(2) 6-47-Gilles Simon (France) beat 3-Milos Raonic (Canada) 4-6 6-3 7-5Kevin Anderson (South Africa) beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (Spain) 7-6(7) 7-5 – read more
