Here are five tips every professional must read to have success in their life.
Keeping boss happy
Do you know exactly what your boss expects of you? If so: how do you know? Have you and your boss discussed these expectations? Here’s something you could do: write down the ten things that you think are most important to your boss. Then make an appointment for a meeting and ask your boss to give you a score from 1 (not important at all) to 10 (top priority) for each item on the list. Say that you’re eager to make progress and that you would value your boss’s feedback in order to ensure that you’ve got your priorities straight.
Why do people find it so diﬃcult to delegate work? “In the time it takes me to explain what needs to be done, I might as well do it myself,” is a popular excuse. The truth is that it may even take a lot longer to explain something to somebody else than to do it yourself.
By scheduling very short sessions, you can ensure that things will get done far more quickly.
Working with the team
Stop spending your lunch breaks with colleagues who whinge about everything from the company to your boss and anyone who is out of earshot. These conversations have a lasting effect – it’s like spending every day with people who have viruses and constantly cough and sneeze all over you.
Focus on natural abilities
Instead of focusing on the things that you have less natural ability, focus on things that you have natural abilities so that you can excel.
