Develop good work habits that mark you as a professional and that will serve you throughout your career. Good work habits mean:
  • You plan your time to ensure that tasks are completed on time.
  • You always do a thorough job.
  • You handle multiple priorities with grace and skill.
  • You respond to stressful situations with calm control.
  • You maintain your enthusiasm and commitment to a task until it is completed.
  • You handle boring tasks with the same care that you handle interesting ones.
  • You never give up when tasks are challenging or difficult.
  • You analyze tasks in advance and plan how much time they will take to accomplish.
  • You pace your work and effort so that you don’t have to rush at the last minute.
  • You break large projects into manageable steps and identify milestones.
  • You do what is most important each day.
  • You use a calendar system to help you manage your time.
  • You have the supplies you need on hand and ready for use.
  • You keep your workspace orderly and well organized.
  • You keep track of projects and materials.
  • You are always on time for meetings and appointments.
  • Your written documents are neat and free of errors.
  • You take proper care of equipment.
