How to be contented with your work? 5 things to go with

Have you ever gone through a phase where you feel like having no contentment with your work? or have felt like you are not enjoying your job as much as you should? Here are 5 keys to feeling satisfied with what you do and how you do it:

1. Honesty

No! I am not going to narrate a story here with a moral “honesty is the best policy” and make you feel bored 😉

But yes, if you start being honest with yourself, your work and routine, you can do wonders with your job. Do not think if your boss is not around and you can skip your task or indulge in useless talks with people around. I know how much happy feeling it is when your boss is on leave 😉 but stay alert when it comes to your work. You’ll feel satisfied with your moral, performance and habit of doing routinely work efficiently and will not be afraid of anything because you know you did everything rightly and timely.

2. Punctuality

Be on time which is scheduled by the office administration, do not think if your colleague is not on time or people around take it easy to follow time schedules then you should also. Be punctual, not just one day but every day! It not only makes your personal habits good and build your personality but also makes a good record of yours at your workplace because everyone knows how much punctual you are (which is a good attribute). Make good impression last!

3. Say “no” to politics

Workplace politics? I think exists everywhere which I do not like at all. I mean from where on earth do people get time and mind for useless talks about each other? You go to the office for doing work, for your self-growth and learning not backbiting about your colleagues in respect of any matter. Be fair in your dealings and do not trust anything conveyed other than by authenticated source. This can save you from many negative things 🙂

4. Professional jealousy. What is that?

This! I did not know about the term till I entered in professional life. Once you get out of your graduating school you will learn how fast the pace of life is. You’ll come to know that people will keep moving forward for their good which is actually good but there is one aspect of moving forward in career building. One negative aspect! and that is professional jealousy which in no way satisfies good morals. You’ll come across people who say ill about you at your back just to make themselves appear good and more successful. You’ ll see that only quarter of the people will become truly happy with your next promotion/success (I doubt if my estimation is more because there is a scenario when not even one is).

What you need to do? Let people think what they think and let them do what they do but make sure you are not like them. Remember, what is destined for you can never be anyone’s else and what is not destined for you can never be yours in million years even. Make yourself free from the bad nature of getting jealous. Appreciate people and their success and you will not have anything negative to think about. This leads to a happy and contented side of you.

5. Give your best!

Yes! Give your 100% effort to any task assigned to you. Hard work pays off. It truly does. Accept when you are mistaken but try avoiding the mistake next time. Help your co-workers with things they need assistance in. deliver your knowledge to others. Do not think that if you’ll make someone learn what you know, they will take your position. No one takes place of another until they deserve it and if by how they do so it won’t last long. Be confident in your skills and stay positive. No matter what.

And when I said “no matter what” I really meant that. I know how stressful an office environment can be. Worry and anxieties won’t give you anything but optimism will make you stand up every time you get down.

So, here are Cheers to every person who just read this and is thinking to take their next step towards self-contentment 🙂

5 Reasons why you must travel.

Holding my laptop and restarting my pending assignments, a glance of my Lahore trip (I had this week)  just ran through my mind and I  figured out to write about the pleasure of traveling. Here are five reasons you need to read if you do not like to travel. I am sure you will think about taking a step out of your comforting home and would like to experience a more comfortable journey with your own self.

You meet different people

The first thing that makes me excited about traveling is that you get to meet different people. I know most of you would be a person who talks less or is afraid of talking to strangers. You can not talk to every one of course but you can talk to people who seem nice or a person sitting next to you (if you are traveling alone like I do). The good thing about this is you listen to people, their stories, their experiences and most likely about the place you are heading if they belong to that place.

You get to see countrysides

Second good reason if you are traveling by road is you see countrysides views. Wide green grass seems like a green carpet spread all over the land, livestock, children playing in fields, men and women making an exceptional example of hard work by working in rural areas. There are always beautiful views of sunrise or sun setting, or a full brightened moon following you all along your journey or flock of birds flying on the widely seen blue sky giving a sense of freedom and an immense love for nature. There are always sights worth watching.

You get to manage things on your own

The third and important reason which is also a factor of your personal development is that you learn to manage things more properly. Traveling requires a planned approach. You need to decide your staying plan and the clothes and food you should carry with yourself. Even if you are not traveling alone, you must know about your own things for your usage like where you put this and that thing, what medicines you can need in time for any happening etc. You also learn to do packing in the most efficient way so that you can carry your stuff in most convenient manner. Eventually, you are aware of saving your phone battery (I know this was an important one 😉 )

You experience new places

If you are new to the place you are traveling to then you definitely get to see that place as a new one and experience everything new including people, food, culture, heritage, architecture and living style. I have always loved being in new place and get the most positive things out of it and if I do not experience something good about a certain place like if I had thought to return from certain place at a certain time and I couldn’t get a cab out there at that time then I need to keep this thing in my mind for future visits or for recommendations to other people. Otherwise, enjoy every bit of new place and do not forget to capture your likings (You do not have to be a DSLR holder for that 😉 )

You get to eat different food

Yes! Food is a favorite thing to experience. You get traditional and different food to eat at a new place. I know there are people who always prefer eating a strawberry flavor in their ice cream but trust me if you’ll add chocolate, blueberry, mango, caramel or pistachio to it, it won’t taste bad.

Travel around your city, village, country or around the world. There are millions of flavors of everything you will like to taste.

Happy traveling and reading 🙂

7 facts about “being a boarder”

Fact 1: Mess Menu – an important thing to discuss at day and night.

Okay, the day you enter your hostel building you get to realize that there is no separate kitchen where you can cook and eat whatever you want. You need to keep a follow up of your mess menu and it never goes same always. You have to eat vegetables in dinner for four consecutive days sometimes.  The days go like sitting on a lunch table and thinking what will be for dinner tonight? Or texting your roommate asking “what is in mess today?”Read More »
