1. Start Your Day With A Plan
A plan helps you stay focused and gives you an incredible power to stay in control.
2. Focus On Quality
Complete and deliver quality work. Stop obsessing with perfectionism.
3. Take Advantage Of Slow Periods
If your company has slow periods, for example, August and December use it to start a summer project, to learn new skills or to improve the primary tools you use.
4. Grow Your Skills
Push the boundaries at work: acquire new skills and abilities. Be flexible at work! That could lead to a promotion or to interesting work assignments.
5. Protect your Asset: Mind and Body
Use both exercise and meditation as a stress management technique. Keep regular appointments with your dentist and your doctor. Don’t wait for a crisis to happen.
Knowledge is a valuable resource that needs to be renewed over time. Invest time and money to buy new books, attend conferences, and keep track of new insights and lessons learned.
