A weekly 9-5 job is the standard full time business. You work for 8 hours and then you go home to live yet another routine outside of your career. The life of a full time worker is packed with daily tasks, meetings, and other things that need to be done. With such a business lifestyle, it’s easy to work up an appetite – a hunger for a better career, a better life or a better job. That’s why we created this recipe for you. The perfect diet to make your job a dream, in real life that is.
Here are the Ingredients:
- Reduced Anxiety
- Hint of Happiness
- A Dash of Mistakes
- One Stress Free Environment
- A Pinch of Change
- Splash of Confidence
Life is a big mixing bowl of your job, your family, your home and your hobbies. Having the perfect business diet will ensure you satisfaction in your career.
To reduce something, you must physically place the heat on “low”. Yep, this means lowering expectations in life. Give yourself a daily to-do list. Keep it to a minimum of things you know you can achieve. You’ll have a sense of fulfillment each time you check off a task. When you find your anxiety creeping in the back of your mind, try a breathing technique and calm yourself down.
Hint of Happiness
Take a moment out of your work day to do something that makes you happy. If your office has a gym, go for a workout. If you enjoy the outdoors, take a walk to get some fresh air. Grab a snack if you love to eat. This is not a selfish act. To have a great day every day, you need to have a minute or two where you do something for yourself.
A Dash of Mistakes
It’s okay when you make mistakes. However, you must own up to them and admit when you are wrong. This is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength. No one is perfect at their job and mistakes are unavoidable. When you admit your mistakes right away and try to fix the problem, you end up saving yourself and your company time and effort.
One Stress Free Environment
You will be doing yourself a favor when you create a stress free environment in your office. Add personal touches to your desk, diffuse calming oils into the air and have plants to omit extra oxygen for easy breathing. When you reduce your stress levels, you have a better chance of focusing on your work and becoming a more productive employee.
A Pinch of Change
Change is necessary. It’s how businesses and employers progress to become better. Accept a little change every now and then. If you find yourself falling into a mundane routine, switch something around on your calendar so you keep yourself used to accepting when things change.
Splash of Confidence
Believe in yourself and your career. There is a reason your company hired you. Boost your self esteem so you can take on each day with a “can-do” attitude. Understand that you have unique attributes that you bring to the table wherever you choose to eat. Confidence is a key ingredient for any successful career.
