A good job usually comes with a good salary. However, it is important not to lose one’s passion and enthusiasm for the job or else mediocrity will take place. This is a dangerous scenario, especially now that there is uncertainty in the stock market. It is vital therefore, that one needs to constantly prove his worth in order for the boss to keep him.
Striving for superior output and services is something that all employees should aspire for, no matter what position they hold. This requires one to accomplish his assignment on time. If the boss says the output is due on Friday, then it needs to be submitted on a Friday and not on a Saturday. Procrastination is something that should be avoided like the plague. Be conscious of submitting works that require meticulous attention. If you fail to do your part and errors crop up, it will significantly affect your status. People will develop a negative impression on your work habits. Skip the juvenile act of cutting corners. It is not a good procedure to resort to.
When required to attend meetings, arrive 15 minutes ahead of time in order to prepare yourself. You must be ready psychologically and emotionally for the possible stress you might encounter. Groom yourself. Apply a light make up to enhance your best features, straighten your business attire and spray on a light perfume. In contrast, if you’re late, you will look and feel harassed, thereby creating an unsightly picture. Do not think you can get by with being fashionably late, as what ordinary people would say.
