When it comes to job promotion or increment, attitude, and not skill, is often a deciding factor.
That is why it is important to have a good attitude at work.
The problem with many people is that they hate their jobs, and their bosses.
While they may not say so, their faces show, and their attitudes show. That is why they never go far in their career.
You can avoid getting stuck in a dead end job by having a good attitude at work.
How can you do so?
1. Smile and Laugh
Imagine going to work, and see everyone frowning. How do you feel at suchsight?
You will definitely get depressed, even before you start working.
That is why you must start the day with a genuine smile at everyone. It is great to live. It is great to wake up in the morning.
It is great to have a healthy body that enables you to work and earn money.
Think about the positive things, and all the happy memories.
People love a cheerful person.
You should not say yes or no to every request by your bosses.
You will kill yourself if you say yes to everything.
You will get sack if you refuse every work request.
The trick is to negotiate.
For example, your boss asks you to handle a major project. It will take a lot of time and effort. In this case, you can negotiate so that you can pass those time consuming tasks to your colleagues.
For example, your boss asks you to head the overseas recruitment drive. You can negotiate for an assistant to do the paperwork.
You can negotiate to pass the filing task to another person.
If you try to do everything by yourself, you will be dead.
3. Believe in the effort
You must have strong belief that effort is the key to success.
Even if your project fails due to certain unforeseen circumstances, your boss will appreciate your effort.
Make sure that you put in enough effort in everything you do.
It is better that you take initiative to do more, and not wait for your boss to issue orders.
4. Time management
Coming to work on time is a must.
If you always come
They will think that you are not a good worker, even if you do stay back to make up the hours.
A rule of thumb is to reach office before your boss comes in. If your boss has the bad habit of coming in late, you must still reach the office before the start of the day.
Always finish your allocated tasks before the deadline. If your boss gives you two days to finish the task, and you have agreed to it, make sure you do not take four days.
Time management is an important skill.
When you prove that you can meet deadlines, your boss will appreciate it. Your boss will think of you as a delicate worker.
Remember that having a good attitude at work is important.
Your colleagues will remember you for years. They may recommend you to their contacts.
You may be headhunted to a better position in the future.
