4 Easy Steps to Becoming a Valued Worker

Why?

You get paid more. You can feel stable. When work is going well, it affects your life in positive ways.

A Better Job, A Better Life

How?

  • First impressions last. Be the BEST worker in the facility. The fastest learner. The most positive. The person who always shows up early, and stays late. Sprint to productivity. You don’t know your limits until you INTENTIONALLY exceed them. Don’t be comfortable. Push yourself. It will get noticed, as will you if you take it easy.
  • Unclutter your life. All of us have a tendency to carry our personal baggage with us anywhere we go. If you are headed to work, leave your baggage at home. There is nothing you can do about it at work that will not negatively impact your value at work.
  • Focus on learning the job to the MAX! The word here is FOCUS. Concentrate on what you are being taught. Don’t let your mind stray. Take notes. Re-read your notes. A supervisor may give you a second chance, but rarely a third. They will remember how fast you learned and the good questions you asked. When it is time to promote someone, who gets the front row? You.
  • Ignore Bad Managers. Deal with it. Don’t cop an attitude, don’t gossip, and don’t make faces when his back is turned. Others see that. At the right time, try to work it out, but don’t play the blame game, don’t get indignant and don’t confront. You WILL lose.  

The key to becoming a happier person, relative to your work life, is to exceed the expectations of your employer, and exceed the limits you set on yourself. Easy? Yes. Hard work? Yes. But it is worth it.

“If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.”

Exceed your limits, INTENTIONALLY.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life. Ask us how.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
