Coffee Cup

If your job provides free coffee and snacks, you may consider that a perk, right? Wrong! Free snacks may actually be holding you back from your full potential. Snacks lead to messy feelings and according to Clinical Psychologist Susan Albers, “we use snacks as procrastination when we’re bored, need an energy boost, and are sometimes pretty social.” She goes on to say that snacks are used in place of actual praise, “we often don’t get that pat on the back that we want or deserve, so extras such as free food means a lot to some employees.

 

What do you think? Is a cupcake as good as a pat on the back or a raise? Does your job provide free snacks/coffee?
