Ways To Be More Positive At Work
1. Start the day right.
Don’t let an early morning negative experience set the tone for the rest of the day. Quickly counter-act it for a positive thought or for another action that has a more positive result.
2. Avoid too many to-do lists.
Have you ever felt like you are trying to do everything and get nothing done? That’s what having too many to do lists will do. The best way is to only have one list and prioritize your work.
3. Keep a record of the things you have accomplished for the day.
Take 5 minutes at the end of the day to jot down the things you accomplished for the day. Trust me, this will have more than one benefit. First, it will give you a visual reminder of the things you achieved for the day, plus it will be a “proof” of all the hard work you are doing, it may come in handy down the road when you are asking for a raise.
4. Make everything simple.
Don’t over-complicate things. The simpler you organize everything, the less daunting you make them when it comes to getting them done.
5. Add some variations.
There is nothing worst then performing the same task over and over and over. Always be on the lookout for new things to do. This is a good time to look at your natural talents and apply them to do other things. Open yourself up to trading tasks with other people, this can create a win win so no one gets bogged down in boredom with the same old tasks.
6. Make some changes to your work environment.
When possible, decorate your workplace by including inspiring and uplifting objects, some people like to put toys plants, or pictures which not only will motivate you but can ignite your creativity and boost your motivation.
7. Keep yourself busy.
Have you ever been in a job where you look at the clock almost every minute?
Not only could this be a product of having boring tasks but it can also be because you are simply not keeping busy. Keeping busy will not only keep you from getting bored but will definitely make it seem like time is going faster–and that will give you no time to get bored.
