Effective @ Work

The ultimate satisfaction one can get at work is when they have a sense of belief that the work is done very effectively. For being effective at work, I believe the following are very essential :


The more definite and focused you are, the easier it is for you to make better decisions on your priorities and the use of your time. The more you spend on your most important work, the more you accomplish, and the better you get at accomplishing even more.


Take responsibility for your work, for every aspect of your job. The people who ride high in their field are the people who act as if they own the place. They see themselves as self employed. That is the reason they are always the most appreciated and respected people in the company.


The mark of an effective person, or the real professional, in any field is that he takes far more time to prepare than the average. When you are preparing, get the facts not the obvious facts, the apparent facts, the assumed facts, or the logical facts. Facts don’t lie. Check and double check. In other words, it can be said that ‘Effective performance is preceded by painstaking preparation.’

Work on Priority

To achieve great results, you must always be concentrating on the small number of activities that contribute the greatest value in terms of work. Always decide what is the most valuable use of your time? And whatever it is, work on that. Your ability to discipline yourself to work on those few tasks can make the greatest difference between effective or ineffective team member at work.


Every great leap forward in life is preceded by a clear decision and a commitment to action. The people who have achieved great feats are not necessarily those who make the right decisions, but they are those who make their decisions right. They accept feed back and self-correct. They are always decisive, always moving forward, never wishy-washy or vacillating in their attitudes.

Put your best efforts

Nothing will bring you to the attention of your superiors faster than your developing a reputation for being a hard worker. Your commitment to hard work creates a force field of positive energy around you that attracts positive people and greater opportunities into your life. You must be working on high value tasks and activities aimed toward the accomplishment of meaningful and important goals.


Always ask these questions to yourself. Why am I on the payroll? What specific, tangible, measurable results are expected of me? There will never be enough time to do everything that you have to do. Only by stretching yourself can you discover how much you are truly capable of. It is therefore the efficiency in which you complete the job that matters.

Have Persistence

Your ability to persist in the face of setbacks and disappointments is your measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to succeed in your  professional life. When you demonstrate to yourself and to the people around you that you have the quality of self-discipline and self-mastery you will become absolutely indispensable and your effectiveness in the organization shall sky rocket.

Superb Execution

Set standards of excellence for yourself and for everyone who report to you. You also need to be ruthless about weeding out incompetence and poor  performance. Identify your core competencies and continuously look for ways to upgrade them to see that you and your organization are the best in the business.


People don’t buy products or services. They “buy” the people who are selling the products or services. First, you sell yourself as a likeable and creditable
person, and then you sell what you represent. Maintain and strengthen high quality relationships with internal customers (subordinates, colleagues, bosses, vendors) and external customers to see the company forging ahead.


If you wish to increase the quantity of your rewards, you must first increase the quality and quantity of your service. Your rewards in life will be in  direct proportion to the value of your service to company.

The above are few of the important things which if kept in mind and being followed at work will yield great results and dividends.

DECLARE YOURSELF !! to the world

When someone asks, “What do you do?”  are you able to express yourself confidently or do you find yourself stumbling to answer? Not because you don’t know, but because you’re afraid to own it.  Because the idea of declaring yourself as “something” – a writer, an entrepreneur, a speaker, a professional – makes it all the more real. It puts a label on your work, your hobby, your passions, that sometimes seem impossible to live up to.
