An alliance or partnership at work may help you to boost your career.
By lifting someone else up when they are in need of a boost, you ultimately raise your own sense of pride and accomplishment. Helping someone else is a terrific way to lift your mood and give yourself a sense of purpose. If that sense of purpose is missing lately, look around you for simple ways that you can help someone else. It doesn't have to be a big effort; every little bit counts.
Just because something is urgent doesn't mean that it's important. It's easy for important work to get interrupted by urgent, but unimportant, tasks. Try to prioritise.
