Through my teaching experiences, I learned that preparation is the key to success. The students know immediately if the instructor is not prepared. Every class is different, so the teacher can not prepare across the board. Some teachers will say that they have taught their subject so long that they could do it in their sleep. If one talks to the students in their classes, that is exactly what the students (sleep) are doing while those instructors drone on. Creativity through preparation will keep the students on their toes and make the instructors life less boring.
Preparation and work ethic in any situation makes the difference between mediocre and outstanding work. Work ethic includes attitude, perseverance, and preparation. If a person challenges himself to do the best that he can do, his work will reflect this attitude. What more can an employer ask for than the employee who is prepared and ready to complete whatever he is asked to do?
In order to do a better job in the daily routine, here are some steps about which to think:
Improve organization. Make the workplace more enjoyable by changing the papers, desk, and whatever else is used easier to work within.
Include the coworkers in the discussion. This effort will make coming to work less routine if friendships are established. Lifelong friends can be made at work.
Understand that one can always learn more. Knowledge will stimulate and keep those grey cells motivated.
Do more work than normal. If a person is busy, time goes by faster. At the end of the day, there may be time to get to those things that the employer has been wanting.
Quality in any profession constitutes putting more effort in to whatever a person is trying to accomplish. In addition, from this quality work, life at home might just get better also!
