Your habits are your skills, if you employ them mindfully. Skill does not refer only to the stuff you enumerate on your resume nor does it mean only the subject you have majored in. Skill is everything you employ to make your work better and your habits can prove to be gem in this regard.
These are the habits that will be a ladder to a successful career.
Show Up On Time
These are the words of the celebrity chef and the Cable News Network (CNN) host, Anthony Bourdain which he uttered when asked for the best advice. Career experts claim that employees who do not come to work and are absent often get fired.
This is a good habit to be punctual and would add to your credibility.
Be Value Oriented
‘Am I adding value to my organization’ is the question you need to ask yourself many times. When you are a value adder to your company definitely there will be a permanent space for you in there. Identify the value of your company, if you are a lawyer the remuneration would be the value to your firm.
‘Exceed expectations’ is the norm in professional world. It will add to your credibility and also would make you proficient. Doing a task in less time as prescribed by your boss will not only win your boss’s trust but also would help you doing more experience and thus earning more experience.
Don’t Engage in Useless Power Struggles
When you would employ the above skills, you would not have to indulge yourself in power struggle. The place you hold will remain yours so don’t be insecure. Playing power politics would taint your image and credibility.
Avoid whining, this is not a professional attitude. You are here to work so consider the issues you encounter regarding work conditions as trivial.
