What Did I Do for Myself Today?

A survey last year from VitalSmarts found that 97 percent of employees described themselves as having one of these five traits: lacking reliability, making not-my-job comments, procrastinating, resisting change or projecting a negative attitude. Read this article by Anita Bruzzese and learn how you can turn around your attitude and become a more ‘valued’ employee for you current or future employer! You have more power than you think you might. For instance, give yourself permission to vent in a healthy way: Write down the things that bug you about your job, things you can't stand or complaints. Now put each of those items into three categories: what is within your control, what you may be able to influence and what is out of your control. Cross out what you can't control and focus on what you can do with the remaining items. By looking at obstacles in a proactive way — as something you're capable of overcoming — you will feel less negative and stuck. It seems basic, but the truth is that most people find themselves hating the jobs they do. By changing just a few things within yourself, however, you can excape from the quagmire of blaming and apathedic work life to become a happy, productive, and valuable team member!
