If you want to persuade or impress someone in the office, you could try wearing a powerful shade of red. The colour makes others view you as someone who's 'focused, committed, and trustworthy,' said Kenny Frimpong, brand marketing and development manager at high-end Italian clothing store Eredi Pisano.

'We've been in business for about 15 years, and we encourage most of our clients to wear red.'

Wake up earlier.

If you want to impress your boss, get to the office early.

Although studies show that night owls tend to be smarter and more creative than morning types, those who wake up early have better job performance, greater career success, and higher wages.

People who wake up early are typically also happier, healthier, and have higher satisfaction compared to their friends who prefer the night life, according to a study conducted by the University of Toronto.

Being happier also means that you'll be more productive at your job and easier to work with.
