It's Work, Go to Work and Don't Play Around

Here is a new idea for some people: go to work and actually work. There are quite a few people all across America who go to work each day and look for ways to skip as much work as possible. Think about how little sense that makes. It really does not make sense to go to work and complain to that you have to well, work. But, each day millions of people are going to work and spending countless house figuring out ways to look busy while not actually being busy doing the work their employers are paying them to do. Just as you should be grateful for work and should show up like a grown up at work,  when you go to work, you should actually work.

 What if instead of complaining about having to work at work people got a new attitude and went to work and actually worked. Here are some benefits of actually working at work:
  • increased productivity
  • positive attention for supervisor and co-workers
  • improved reputation
  • increased chance of promotion and advancement
  • less stress and aggravation from trying to hide idle behavior
  • increased comfort resulting from doing the right thing in the right place
  • good application of the Golden Rule
One thing that employees must realize is that work, is just that work. There is an explicit agreement between employers and employees. Employees come to work to do a set of assigned tasks and responsibilities. In exchange for the performance of those tasks and responsibilities the employer provide employees with monetary compensation. If you are one of the employees only working some of the time and only doing some of your tasks and responsibilities, would you like it if your employer only paid you part of your expected salary?  In most cases, the answer is a resounding no!
Once upon a time, people were taught, "Your word is your bond." It meant if you said something, it was true, it could be trusted and people would bank on it. When you accept an offer of employment, you give your word. That word should be a bond, an agreement, a promise that your employer can trust and depend upon.
wonderful Wednesday, work, grown up, golden rule, work, don't play
Starting today, go to work and actually work, do what you agreed to do, keep your word. So, the question for you this wonderful day is, are you actually working at work?
