Work is Worship: Start Work early with Devotion, Honesty and Skill

PC THOMAS: The “World Day for Safety and Health at Work” is an annual international campaign to promote safe, healthy and decent work. It is held on 28 April and has been observed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) since 2003.

On this World Day for Safety and Health at Work, we all are once again shut in with work in Home culture due to second wave of corona. But are you safe in your work-in-Home and do your work to the best satisfaction of your employer? Will your Boss give you employment forever? How long can you work safely in home? There are many other such questions that may float in people’s mind, which may kill peace and happiness of mind in this corona time.

Once, a prospective employee attended an interview where he was asked the first question by the Manager: “Why did you leave your last job?” – The employee quickly answered:  “The company relocated somewhere and did not tell me where”.

Why was this employee not informed by the Boss about the change of shifting of the office and its location? Obviously, the employee was found useless by the employer and thus avoided him through relocation or by a silent termination.  Mind you, this kind of setback may happen in your life, if you become non-productive or insincere in your employment. Hence, competence, productivity, devotion, sincerity, dedication etc., are of utmost importance to sustain life in this corona-led work culture.

In the midst of this second wave of corona crisis, where economy or employments hit hardest,  it is natural that employers perhaps be forced to relocate someone to somewhere.  Hence, in order to survive with a competitive workforce, everyone needs to develop skill, devotion, dedication for his or her existence.

You all may have heard a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

The story may be confusing but the message is very clear: no one took responsibility and so nothing got accomplished.

Do you consider yourself to be effective at work? Although many of us like to think that we are “100 percent” effective but the truth is that most of us may one or the other weaknesses that impact our career. Hence identify our strength and weakness in order to sustain our life of job is very much significant in this corona oriented work-in-home culture.

Being truly effective and efficient at work can pay off now and throughout our careers. Effective workers get exciting opportunities regardless of corona, and are well respected by their employers. But how can we become more effective and make sure that we don't miss out on these great opportunities? And what should we focus on?

It is important that we identify our job's true purpose and define what we need to achieve in our current position. We need to understand the various aspects of the job we are entrusted with by skillfully analyzing it. This will help us uncover our most important objectives, so that we can start prioritizing tasks effectively.

A good attitude at work will do more than just earn us respect: setting standards for our work and our behavior means that we are taking responsibility for ourselves. This admirable trait is hard to find in many organizations. But demonstrating ethical decision-making and integrity could open many doors for us in the future. So, focus on adopting a good attitude at work, and make decisions that intuitively "ring true." At the very least, we will sleep easier at night!

Try to make your workspace comfortable and do your work as early as possible. The “Early bird catches the worm”. It stresses on the significance of doing work on time in order to stay ahead of others.

A ‘worm’ comes out of the ground usually in the early morning period. Here, ‘worm’ is used as a metaphor for opportunity. The bird is analogous to a person who has a work to be done. Thus, to grab a golden opportunity one has to be proactive, alert and should start early. Postponing a work can rob us of potential benefits. Energy and enthusiasm levels are high usually when we start early due to the absence of negative influences. It also provides us opportunities to explore more choices to do a work efficiently. Also, starting work on time or early enough, saves the embarrassment of turning up late with a cooked-up excuse.
