...that I need to work on in order to become the kind of person I’d be proud to know is: my work ethic!
It’s not that I don’t know how to work hard – I do. It’s just that I’m currently in a job that doesn’t require an awful lot of hard work, and so I let it slide. What I’d like to do instead, and what I commit to working on until I get it under control, is giving 100% anyhow. Going beyond the call of duty.
Instead of getting all the necessitites done and then killing time, I’m going to get all the necessities done and then find other areas, however large or small, where I can set to work on making things better, improving processes, happily surprising my boss. It’s hard to turn the tide, and I’ve been slacking off for an awful long time, but it’s just going to have to end today. I don’t like how I feel when I think about my work performance, and I’m the only one who can do anything about it, and so off I go, determined to make it better!
