Who hasn’t stared at the clock longing for 5 o’clock on occasion, or spent too much time gossiping about a co-worker?
We’re all human. And yet we know that a successful career doesn’t just happen; it starts with a commitment to bringing your A-game to the worksite each and every day.
It starts before you get to work, using your commute to listen to inspirational or educational media, and arriving (early) ready to take on the day. One of our favorite tips: Don’t check your email first thing. Instead, use that fresh focus to get something accomplished before diving into the mailbox.
Another good idea is to avoid office politics; they will just drag you down and pit you against your co-workers. Focus instead on what’s needed to move forward, and foster a collaborative mindset.
As with most things in life, it all comes down to attitude. When you approach even the toughest (or most mind-numbing) day at work with a positive spirit and a willingness to be open, amazing things can happen.
