“Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.”
We spend our day with different groups of people- our friends, family and even colleagues. With each and every one of them we will behave in a different manner. It is based on our behavior that people all around is make judgement about us. Our family may perceive us to be the irritated one because we usually take out all our anger and emotions on them. Our colleagues might see as someone who is very superficial and our friends will see us someone who is very care free in life. People all our are continuously engaged in making judgement, so shouldn’t we organize ourselves in a manner so that people don’t end up with a bad preconceived notion about us?
Etiquettes are the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.
SOCIAL etiquette- This refers to the way we behave around our social surroundings. We must always remember to keep a calm and composed attitude. Talking the right things, not talking in a very loud voice and simply being polite is imperative around all. Taking out your unnecessary anger on someone else is beyond wrong.
DINING etiquette- When you are out for a business dinner or with your extended family, people tend to judge you a lot- on the way you eat and how much you eat(unfortunately). Few things to remember are, never eat with your mouth open. Better don’t ever talk with food in our mouth. Never stuff too much on your plate, nobody likes wastage of food.
BUSINESS etiquette- For people working in firms, they will have to deal with different times of people of several occasions in a weak itself! Maintaining a sense of professionalism with all is of utmost importance. Never treat anybody as your inferior. Not even your office clerks. Small thing such as opening the door for someone or helping others with their work should be incorporated in your habits. During meetings, no matter how bored you are, always always listen to the other person. Try contributing to their points and don’t even by mistake doze off!
