The short answer is yes, especially when clients are quick to judge you on your style rather than your work. 我有没有被自己的穿衣打扮拖后腿呢?简而言之,答案是肯定的,尤其是有些客户会根据你的穿搭而非工作来对你做出评价。 But no one can be unique with their outfit every day. I mean that's why uniforms were invented. So here's what I did, created my own uniform. 但是谁也不能每天都穿的与众不同,所以当初才有人发明了制服。于是我就设计了自己的制服。 Now, I never worry about what l'm wearing in the morning, even if I do get a bit tired of just wearing the same classic pieces. 现在我早上再也不用为穿什么而发愁了,虽然确实有点厌烦一直穿同样的经典款式。 Overall, when it comes to work, you have to ask yourself, “Will looking smarter enhance my ability to do my job?" For some, this question may not be an issue at all. 总的来说,谈到工作中的穿搭,你需要问问自己,穿得漂亮会提高我的工作能力吗?对有些人来说,这可能根本就不是问题。 Especially if you work remotely and rarely see your colleagues or clients face to face. But if your job involves interacting with other people, the answer to this is often yes. 尤其如果你是远程办公,很少和同事或客户见面。但是如果你的工作需要经常和其他人打交道,那这个问题的答案通常是肯定的。 So rather than fighting the system, I think we should just do whatever helps us to achieve our goals at work. If that means playing it safe with your image, then let's face it. It's probably worth it. 所以我认为,不要与这种体制对抗,我们只需要做好一切能帮助我们达成工作目标的事情。如果这意味着要审慎对待自己的形象,那么就直面它吧。这很可能是值得的。 问题: Question 12: What do we learn about the speaker when she first started her job?
