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:
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.
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 🙂
