Give Yourself a Break!
Work environments are in desperate need for strivers. Strivers have certain qualities and skills that make them the “go to, got it done” team player everyone needs on their team. Strivers first have an innate interest in learning; albeit a curiosity. These self- learners do not use excuses, blame others, or create distractions with smoke and mirrors when confronted with new tasks, difficulties, or conflict. They become curious about how to do work better and more efficiently, with an emphasis on improving themselves.
The skills they bring to the table include critical thinking; why something is the way it is, contextual interest; what do I need to understand about this issue that effects the work I must accomplish, and lastly the skill to explore their own strengths and weaknesses that effect their ability to take on a new task.
Plan a new approach to your work
Establish a goal for improvement - e.g., more timely paperwork
Do that approach
Put the plan into effect- e.g. change when I do my paperwork
Study what went better
Verify that the process achieved the desired results
Act in the ways that better the work outcome
Analyze any differences and their causes. Act to improve things.
