Developing Great Work Habits

There’s a saying, “Don’t work harder, work smarter.” That may be true, but especially when starting a new job, it’s very important to work harder and smarter.

Your new job is a great opportunity to develop excellent work habits.

Here are some important tips to remember:

  • Make sure to listen more than you talk; “When you have nothing to say, say nothing.” – Charles Caleb Colton.
  • Take notes during meetings and training.
  • When you are not sure how to complete your work, ask for clarification right away. Do not make assumptions.
  • Be a problem solver and volunteer if given an opportunity.
  • Don’t expect special favors or ask for them.
  • Keep your work relationships on a professional level.
  • Do not mix your personal life and your work life.
  • Avoid gossip and criticism.
  • Do not use company phones or equipment for personal needs.
