I have learnt a lot of things while working in various fields the last few years. Below is just a tiny list of what some of the things are:-

1. Be honest
Honesty is probably the best policy you can adopt in any field. What’s actually the use of being dishonest in your work when that’s actually providing you bread and butter? Why would someone even try to waste their time on dishonesty when it only eats up all the good deeds and makes you feel miserable for letting down others you work with? Be honest, you will be glad
you were.

2. Be yourself
It’s always easier to be yourself than to be someone you are not. After all, why would you try to become someone who is totally the opposite of you? Do yourself a great favor and be yourself, you will be glad you did.

3. Be punctual
When you commit to something, DO IT. Don’t go around like a headless chicken every time you had to be done with something important, this is of course valid both on a personal level and at work. If you promise something, go ahead and finalize it rather than backing off or hiding somewhere when people are waiting for you. It’s one thing to forget, it’s a totally different thing to not apologize when you do.

4. Be respectful
I focus a lot on the way I talk to people around me. Being connected to radio as a presenter, I think it helped me a lot in the way I present my views to people who couldn’t see me. The tone of your voice tells the listener what you are feeling. So make sure you talk to others with respect, there is absolutely no reason to be rude. If you dislike someone for a habit they have then “dislike” their habit, rather than the person.

This is probably one of the most difficult words one can say. In life we come across people who just by trying to be nice say yes to everything. They fail to realize that before pleasing others it’s important that they please themselves first. And by that I mean just what I said. Pleasing oneself is absolutely impossible if what you are doing for others is making you miserable.

Examples:-

  • When someone asks you to do something for them and you KNOW that you have no capacity to do the task, please say no. It’s not rude to say so, but it’s worse when you can’t do the task when you have no time to do it.
  • Say no to give yourself a break, because no matter how you look at it one can really exhaust oneself by pleasing other people

The idea behind this tiny post is not to tell you to say no to everything. I myself love helping others, and usually hardly ever say no. But I have my own way of saying a kind no to something I can’t do. Although we can all be better at it if we try.

So summing it up:-

  • Be nice and kind, but learn to say no
  • Be sweet but learn to realize where your limit is
  • Be helpful but realize if something you are saying yes to is even possible without someone else’s help
