I know, I know, y’all were not expecting me to suggest adding even more work onto your already full plates, but that’s exactly what this weekly tip is about. Taking on extra work in all areas of your life shows not only initiative, but it also shows a desire to get ahead and to make changes in your life.
So what does this take on extra work mean exactly? It could mean anything you want it to. For some, it’s asking for more responsibility at work, for others it could mean pitching in with household chores more. Take things on slowly, and see what you reap from it. You’ll never regret working hard.
I know, I know, it’s Monday, ewwww. But you may find that your attitude towards Mondays shift if you start your day with a grateful spirit. First of all, you’re still alive, and second of all, if you are lucky enough to be heading into work on this day, it means you have a job. There are some who would desperately change places with you, so even if your coworkers are driving you crazy, even if you feel stuck at your job, even if you can’t stand it, try to focus on what you do have. You have an income, you have a schedule in your life, you have something you can count on doing each day, waking up and going into work. It’s important to focus on the positives, even if you aren’t in love with your job 🙂
Clean out your work bag and get rid of anything that you don’t need for the workday. It’ll lighten your load, literally.
Even if you’re not living the dream job, start the week with a positive attitude. It’s a new day, a new chance to do great things.
