1) Doing what you have to do must always come before doing what you want to do.
2) Self-check regularly. We all make mistakes but don’t make the mistake of doing nothing about it. Fix it. Sort it. Move on from it.
3) Whatever your deadline, you should aim to have it met in advance. Reviewing is always better than “jamming”.
4) Be the “lucky” one; turn up early, don’t be afraid to leave late, volunteer for things outside your day to day, always try to give more than asked for. When promotion time comes, you won’t have to convince anyone that you are the right person for the job.
What are you good at?
What do you enjoy doing?
Where and how do you get real job satisfaction?
Look for the job that fits, don’t just take a job and try to make it fit.
We all need cash, but how you feel at night when you crash is worth a million!
If you don’t have plans for how you tackle things, you will never know when you are loosing track of things.
