Having a job is hard enough as it is, so why make it any harder? Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your job by kicking those bad habits to the curb!

Being uncooperative

It may be easy to just sit back and relax, but at the end of the day, the job needs to be done. It won’t be long before your hard work gets noticed, so keep up the good work!

Having a messy work environment

You might be able to thrive in chaos, but workplaces thrive in an organized environment. Having a tidy desk is a professional must.


Chances are if you do complain, it will get back to management and spread like wildfire around the workplace. Instead, try writing down your complaints to vent or have a constructive conversation with your employer about things that you want to help improve.

Working when you’re sick

Do NOT share the love! Your coworkers do not want to catch your illness; calling out sick is your best bet. You will recover faster by staying at home and recuperating, and in the long- term, be more productive than if you had gone in.

Skipping meals and breaks

People are proven to work more effectively if they take their breaks, so do your part! Be sure to take self-care into consideration, especially on a long shift; go for a walk, grab a snack, or even a take short nap if you are able to.
