Ditch Bad Habits
Everyone has some bad habits at work. Whether it is texting too much or procrastinating, kick the habit to the curb this year! Are you the last one to the office and the first one to leave? Is your desk a mess? Are you constantly interrupting everyone with questions? Make a list of habits you can improve on and focus on one a week. By intentionally setting an objective for yourself, you will create a work environment that is great for you and everyone around you. Trust us, people will notice!
Reach Out and Network
Spend the New Year expanding your circle with people who can offer advice on your goals. Find someone in your dream position and reach out to them on how they got there. More often than not, people will love to share their story with you and what steps they took to further their career.
Smile While You Work
Work hard, but keep a smile on your face while you’re doing it. No one appreciates the grump in the office. Approach each day with a positive spirit and it will make all the difference. All work and no play makes life a chore.
