How to improve your work ethic
Bring driven and ambitious about your work is one thing; having the empowering attitude
to keep going is another.
Here are some ideas I recently shared with on how to improve your
work ethic:
1. Long term objective The first thing to do is to ask yourself what your long term
objective is that you would like to achieve from your work. By shining a light on this,
you’ll find the inspiration to keep going through the inevitable hurdles, obstacles and
2. Recognise what’s working and not working Look at what you current work ethic is,
recognise what is working so far and do more of that. You’ll also recognise what isn’t
working and those are the ‘spaces’ to improve on.
3. Fear of failure or success Ask yourself whether you are afraid of failure or success
and check in to see if there is a pattern of behaviour that requires some positive
4. Value your mental health and physical wellbeing Be committed to working smart,
not hard. Burnout creeps up slowly over time and this is why working hard in not an
effective long-term work ethic. I’ve found that you mast take care of your physical
wellbeing and mental health by being smart.
5. What works best for you? Look at how you work best and work to your optimum
times. So, for example do you prefer to work out at the gym before work, clear your
emails, be creative, take a late lunch, take regular breaks and walks to break up your
day etc.
6. Work backwards Ask yourself “What results are you looking to get and what’s getting
in the way of making that happen? Work backwards to change habits such as
procrastination, lack of confidence, feeling like a ‘fraud’ etc.
Enjoy working from a place of personal empowerment by taking care of yourself
and your mental health.
