Q: My new co-worker has shaken my confidence. He brags about how much more work he does and how his error rate is lower. I realize he’s full of it, but it still bothers me. What should I do?

A: Don’t fall for his silliness. Remember: You choose to let his behavior affect you. Shrug it off and you’ll feel a new sense of control. Better yet, keep working while he boasts. You’ll be more productive if you stay focused while he wastes time tooting his horn—and it may shut him up.
