New year, new goals! It’s not too late to make the most of 2016 by making and following up on your career ambitions. Check out these tips to assist you in your accomplishments!
We get it – you’re busy. With so many things going on at once, it’s hard to stay organized. However, staying organized is one of the best ways to remain productive and energetic. This year, make it a goal to keep your office space clean. Do so by organizing that “junk” drawer by adding containers for all of those odds-and-ends. This can be anything from small cups and boxes to even an ice cube tray. And keep it organized all year long by cleaning it out every three months.
Contribute to a good work environment
Happy co-workers, happy life! Studies show that a good work environment is one of the most crucial factors for employee satisfaction. Contribute to a happy workplace by consciously building positive relationships with your co-workers. Remember to help them with small tasks, show your appreciation, and focus on teamwork. Remaining positive and enthusiastic will make everyone’s work environment a little brighter.
Get that promotion
If one of your 2016 ambitions is to get the promotion of your dreams, do so by volunteering for additional tasks, taking initiative, and maintaining a positive attitude. And don’t forget to put intentional effort into your job. Employers say that working hard and holding up your end of a task makes you more eligible to get that promotion.
Good time management is tough, but necessary for productivity. Make 2016 as efficient as possible by focusing on managing your time and efforts well. First of all, take time to plan your day. Even if it’s only for 15 minutes every morning, make a list of tasks you want to accomplish and make a conscious effort to follow up on it throughout the day. Secondly, block out social media and other distractions. Doing so will allow you to be more productive and also give you something to look forward to on your breaks. Lastly, don’t be afraid to say “no”. Prioritize the things that you have time for and that are important to you.
