Happy New Year from EON!
A new year means a fresh start, and there is no time like the present to set some goals for the next year. Improving your life at work is not about working harder, but making the right changes to stay balanced and focused no matter what the next year throws at you.
Here are some of EON’s suggestions for making workplace progress in 2015:
Identify Ten Problems
Look around your work space and think about your daily habits and any problems you encounter. Make a list of ten issues that you want to resolve and take time to think about possible solutions. Be honest with yourself and set realistic goals that you can make small steps to achieve.
Take Stock of your equipment
Have you been making do with a printer that doesn’t work correctly or can never find a pen when you need one? Simple issues like these can suck up time and energy that is already at a premium at work. Get rid of any broken equipment and research the products that will best suit your needs- and if you aren’t sure, EON account managers are always willing to consult with you on what would work best. Don’t forget this also includes software – is it time for an upgrade?
Learn Something New
One of the best ways to improve your career and self-esteem is to learn something new. Choose a subject you find interesting and take a class, or request additional training from work. Over time, you will find many new things to enjoy and increase your value and opportunities.
Focus on Your Health
If you aren’t feeling 100%, you can’t give 100%. Make sure your work-life balance is in sync by delegating so you don’t get overwhelmed, and take breaks when you need them. Don’t worry about staying trim as much as staying active, which will add to your health and happiness.
Make sure you take time to express gratitude who have helped you over the last year and pay it forward, whether through a charitable donation or other acts of kindness. The rewards from this will last for years to come.
