GET UP EARLY Giving yourself plenty of time to get ready and eat a healthy breakfast will help you to focus on the day ahead and get to work in plenty of time.
SAY THANK YOU Thanking colleagues and employers for their advice shows your appreciation and ensures that they’ll make time for you when you need help in future.
FOCUS ON HIGH PRIORITY TASKS FIRST Not only does this mean you’ll meet crucial deadlines, but it will also help to keep you focused with multiple projects going on at once.
CHALLENGE YOURSELF & WORK HARD When you achieve things you never thought you would, you feel confident enough to take on anything and work even harder.
MOTIVATE YOURSELF At the start of your day, set yourself some goals. You will feel motivated each time you tick a task off your todo list.
STAY FOCUSED Staying focused on task can be tough, but if you take lots of small breaks throughout the day you’ll keep your mind focused and maintain productivity.
LISTEN TO OTHERS It’s important to listen to others and take on board their perspective, then compromise. Colleagues will respect you for listening and you’ll often learn something new, too.
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES Making mistakes is natural, but learning from them is crucial to success and will earn the respect of your employer.
THINK POSITIVELY Stress and worry can hinder your productivity, but by having a positive, can-do attitude, you’re more likely to reach your goals.
ASK QUESTIONS Having a better understanding of a subject or procedure will help you do your job better, and it will also demonstrate that you’re interested and eager to learn.
