Setting the tone for a great workweek….

by Rod Smith
  1. Clarify why you are at work in the first place: you are there to earn a living, to support your family, and to do your job to the best of your ability.
  2. You are not at work to check Facebook, sit on your phone, send text messages that are not work-related, play games, make friends, gossip, or be underhanded about your workplace in any manner.
  3. Mind your own business. Focus on what you are doing and not what others may or may not be doing.
  4. Tell the truth to your workmates, supervisors, suppliers, and customers. If you are working where telling the truth is difficult then it is time to reassess your career.
  5. Be punctual, use no profanities (no matter what kind of job you hold) and never help yourself to anything that is not yours or for your rightful use.
  6. Don’t cheat – not with hours, reimbursements, sick days, leave time, or mileage expenses.
  7. Don’t speak or write anything about anyone that you have not first said directly to him or to her. There are extreme circumstances where this will not apply. In general, speak to people and not about them.
  8. Don’t talk about your ex, your surgery, your ailments, or your in-laws. No one is interested even if they pretend they are.
