Everyone wants to succeed at work but figuring out how to do well at your job can be challenging. While every company prioritizes different soft and hard skills when evaluating employee performance, there is one universal tip all workers can follow to excel at work: be present.
Being fully present on the job means not just phoning it in but really focusing on your work and giving your all. Being present can benefit you because:
- You can focus more on job tasks. When you are fully focused on doing your job, you will be able to give 100 percent of your attention to each task assigned to you. This means you will be less likely to make mistakes and more likely to excel at the tasks that you are completing. The quality of your work should improve, and you can become more productive since you’ll be able to do these job tasks faster.
- You can show your commitment to helping the company succeed. When you are present and engaged, your passion shows in the way that you interact with co-workers and the way you tackle work tasks. Your manager can discern how enthusiastic and excited you are about your job, so making sure your focus is always 100 percent on your work will ensure you appear as the committed employee you want to be.
- You will become a more valuable member of the team. Focusing your full attention on your job will allow you to identify additional ways to contribute and new methods to streamline your job tasks. By enhancing productivity and branching out beyond the basics to collaborate and help others, you will become a much more valuable member of the team.
