Hey, TQC. I've noticed a trend recently in my working habits and was wondering if anyone had any advice for me about what I can do to fix it. When I start a new job, I'm super on top of things and a really quick learner, and everyone's impressed with me. As I get comfortable at a job, though, I get complacent and comfortable, and I start making careless mistakes, and everyone's like, "WTF happened??" It seems like I always either have to be "the new girl" or terrified of losing my job in order to pay attention to detail. Is this completely bizarre? Got any advice for me apart from "trick yourself into thinking you're going to be fired at any moment"?
