How to become a better performer

I was inspired in a newspaper article I have read and want it to share with you for your reflection as well. The article encourages workers/ employees to become a better performer in their organization. It was summarized thru the seven (7) pointers:

1. FOCUS – Do not divide your attention among things. Reduce the junk in your workplace; keep your cellphone hidden; close all unnecessary windows in your desktop to stop you from going against your will of surfing the irresistible Internet.

2. MANAGE YOUR PRIORITIES – List down all the things that need to be done, from most important to least important.

3. MOTIVATE YOURSELF – Motivation doesn’t need to be monetary or material. It becomes a positive reinforcement for individuals and we all know that reinforced behavior will be repeated.

4. RELAX – Take breaks! Have peace of mind. A certain level of stress can enable an individual to perform effectively, but when he reaches a certain point, performance decreases.

5. PRACTICE – Practicing makes an activity almost habitual, therefore, the individual will exert lesser effort to perform this activity.

6. KEEP A HEALTHY BODY AND MIND – Do not mix your personal life with your work life. Eat plenty, your body needs energy to expend. Eating enough foods brings blood to your brain, triggering that marvelous machinery up there. However, eating too much will drain a significant amount of blood to your brain and make you drowsy. Get seven to eight hours of sleep.

7. ENJOY WHAT YOU DO – Even if you really, really do not like it, enjoying what you are doing makes huge difference. Make use of your strengths and capabilities when performing. There’s a saying that “You really will learn to love what you worked hard for”. So brave that job responsibility, put a smile on your face, keep a positive outlook, and just enjoy!
I hope you were also motivated. I’ll bear this in mind especially no. 1… wink-wink :-)

Unfaithful

I have a friend who is been unfaithful to the contract of marriage. I was devasted upon knowing my friend is in such dilemma. I really can't belive my friend actually did it. My friend might not realize the consequences of the choices made. Not to mention the scandal when the truth unveils. Sweet talks/ gestures might be a catch but do not fall for it. Trials come in marriage life but be tough and mature to face it. I know we're only humans but moral values must still prevail to keep us safe. Just imagine what your children would say and feel if they knew about it, it would definitely break thier hearts. I hope my friend would overcome the feeling of being taken for granted while in the arms of the caring. It's a complicated life my friend so stop it. I love you and I don't want you to get hurt.

I Will Survive!

Hi there! I'm breaking the silence after 7 months of dormancy. Apparently, I've been hooked up with my busy career. I've been promoted in our division and designated as OIC. A breakthrough in my career. And I'm very thankful to our big boss for giving me this opportunity and trusting my capabilities. Oh well, I just hope I can catch up blogging. Hope you'll stick around with me again..
