A lot of people will like to think they’re the most hardworking person there is. But is this always the case? No. Once you get comfortable within a role, you’re more likely to start slacking slightly due to not being as nervous to impress. But it isn’t just that, there’s so much people can do to work their way up higher within the roles, such as better education, but the commitment to actually do something like that just isn’t there. But when you do put your all into a job, the rewards you’ll get will be so worth it. There’s so much money to be made, and new experiences to be had. So we’re here to show you how you can be working harder within your role.
It doesn’t matter what role you’re in, there’s always ways in which you can further your education. Education is the key to unlocking so many doors, the more you have, the more doors you’re going to be able to unlock. But getting back into education once you’ve been in a full time job is incredibly demanding. Luckily for you, there’s plenty of accredited schemes that you can do online if you’re looking to progress within your field. For example, mental health counseling is an ever demanding career that demands an in depth knowledge of the brain and the human behaviours. You’ll never stop learning on the job no matter what. But if you took a M.S. in counseling, there’s no end to the knowledge base you could build. The more qualified you are, the more job prospects are going to be able to appeal to you. With something such as mental health counseling, you do need to constantly be evolving to move with how mental health conditions are changing. Showing your commitment to going back to education often shows potential employers how committed you would be to the job as well.
Do you give enough of your time to the role you’re in? Chances are high that you would say no. When we’re at work it can be easy enough to twiddle our thumbs, maybe have a cheeky look at facebook, or stare into space and hope the day passes by quickly. As much as you might think nobody is noticing, everyone does. You need to be putting in the time whilst you’re there if you want to progress and ever actually move from the role you’re in, which is probably a role at the bottom of the chain. Put in the extra time at work and it’ll all pay off.
As we said above, it is hard to stay focused when you’re at work for one reason or another. But you need to be prepared for someone to come and ask your a surprise question. Or ask you what you’ve done so far in the day. When you’ve actually done nothing, being put on the spot like this can be so embarrassing. Whilst you’re sat at your desk or whatever it is you might do, put a 100% focus in. Every hour, go for a minute walk to stretch your legs and give your mind a break. When you return you’ll be fully prepared to work again.
