Know Your Mission
“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”— Vern McLellan
The start of a new year always comes with resolutions but the dedication and effort put into achieving those resolutions are the key to whether the goal is reached or not.
Manufacturing is a fast paced, ever-changing industry where advancements are always being made to the technology and machinery behind the jobs. These types of advancements help speed up the process of the job, alleviate certain stresses of the job and help to keep workers safe, but what happens when instead of just making enhancements to benefit the tools used to create products, employees try to improve their mental, emotional and physical state of being while on the job?
Here are a list of some work-related resolutions that will be sure to increase productivity and cognitive health while on the job:
Be a leader: A leader is not someone in a position of power, but someone who is responsible, hardworking, passionate and abe to work well with others.
Make things better: Make the work environment better, make the products better, make the process of completing the job better. This one is simple, have a goal to make things better than before.
Practice professional courage: Stand up for what is right, praise someone when they are excelling, help someone who is struggling and speak your mind in an effective, yet respectable manner.
Learn: Come to work with a positive attitude of wanting to learn something new every day. The eagerness of learning along with the satisfaction of gaining and retaining knowledge that is vital to success will allow one to feel accomplished and useful.
Less/More: Less talking, more listening. Less complaining, more encouraging. Less excuses, more accountability. Less procrastinating, more achieving. Less doubt, more confidence. These will help keep a productive mindset at work and will in turn, lead to more success and happiness in the workplace.
Take these resolutions into consideration when thinking about the current amount of productivity, open-mindedness, teamwork and commitment in the workplace.
“Approach the New Year with resolve to find the opportunities hidden in each new day.” — Michael Josephson
