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.

Power Of Introverts- Hat tip to Susan Cain

A review on Susan Cain’s Ted Talk.

I am happy that I got to know one of the great authors. I am a big fan of TED Talks (I already mentioned it in my previous post, Click to view) and I keep on listening many. I came to listen to the TED Talk of Ms. Susan Cain in 2016, titled as “The Power of Introverts” and I admired the idea so much that I googled about her, followed on social sites and here I am writing about her most viewed TED Talk 🙂

A lady takes a stage with a black leathered bag in her hand and narrates a story that her mother packed her a suitcase to the summer camp when she was 9 years old. Can you guess what is in the bag and in that suitcase? Books! Yes, you read it right. Reading was the primary group activity in Susan Cain’s family. Does that seem anti-social to you?

Who is an Introvert?

How do you define an introvert person?  Maybe “Shy” because this is what most of us think.  Like you might have thought of ‘reading’ is an anti-social activity especially when you are sitting with many other people around you. According to Susan Cain, “introversion is about how you respond to stimulation including social stimulation” and that reading while sitting with many other people is a sense of pleasure and feeling of being together with family and be in your own world of the book at the same time.

Do you think you are an introvert and cannot communicate to people at once or cannot share your ideas at first place? That’s completely okay 🙂

Or see it another way. Don’t be scared 🙂

Power of Introverts

Our schools, colleges or universities nowadays have a system in which students work in groups.  There are six to seven students sitting on a bench working on group assignments even in subjects like Creative Writing, Mathematics that fully require an individual set of skills and thoughts. When it comes to leadership, introverts are expected to perform much better than that of extroverts because they are running with so many thoughts in mind and work quietly, however, extroverts, most of the time get more excited about things.  This certainly doesn’t mean that the subject here is to prove that introverts are much better than extroverts or vice versa rather make people and workplaces aware of the fact that there is a need to maintain a fine balance between two when it comes to the selection of creativity and productivity.  Introverts must be encouraged and celebrated.

“Solitude is a crucial ingredient to creativity.  Solitude matters and for some people that is the air that they breathe”.

Calls for Action!

There are three calls for action given by the speaker at the end of the speech.

  1. “Stop the madness for constant group work! Just stop it! We need to teach kids to work together for sure but we also need to be teaching them how to work on their own.
  2. Go to the wilderness. Be like Buddha, have your own revelations.
  3. Take a good look at what is inside your suitcase and why you put it there?

There are many other interesting facts and examples mentioned in the talk. You can listen to the talk here.

Giggles & Tales

Just because you are a girl, the society might try to stifle your dreams and goals. But you’ve got to stand up and say no to any limitations and restrictive mold they may want to force you into.

I know it’s hard to be a girl sometimes but you’ve got to be strong. You’ve got to know that you are created by God to be a voice in this world. To achieve greatness and rule your world. You are born to be a winner. And you’ve got all the tools within you to achieve this height. You are smart. You are intelligent. You are unique. You are exceptional. You are phenomenal.  And you are beautiful.
