Your Work tells more than your words
There was one employee who used to come into the office by 9:30 AM and work till 8-9 O'clock in the evenings. One of his colleagues asked him if you are coming office on time, then why you leave the office too late?
The employee's answer was, I want to show the impression to my boss that I am a very hard-working employee. Through this activity, it may be possible that me may get a Promotion.
I saw many officegoers who carry this type of mindset to get promotions and other rewards. But they don`t know the company gives more privilege to those employees who work rather than those who try to show off their work but they never do.
There are some mistakes that we should discuss that always create problems in our growth.
The mindset of the workaholic:
Many employees used to come to the office on time or before and stay till late evenings. By this exercise instead of creating a good impression, you may spoil your image.
I agree because of the heavy workload sometimes you need to stay for a long. But staying daily till late evening clearly shows that, you are not capable of finishing your work on time.
Showing your work with stars, moon and sky:
I saw many employees, and if someone said Hi to them, they would tell me all the schedule about their work, I have this full list of work, and I am doing very hard work to complete it on time.
If you are also carrying the same mindset please remove it as soon as possible, because you will not get anything out of it. Your Boss knows your work, your capability your strengths, and your weakness.
So, you need not say anything to any employee you should understand that they are also doing the same work as you are doing. Do respect others' work as well.
Don`t praise yourself:
I saw many employees who always praise themselves and oppose others. Without any necessity to help the boss in his work, follow the boss blindly & say yes to every statement of the Boss.
Initially, you will feel that you are getting success, but this is not good for the long term.
If your boss assigns any project to you and you are not able to make it successful, not only you will spoil your impression, but in the future, your boss will think many times before assigning any important project to you.
