It is truly important to be worthy of your hire when you are working for another man’s business. Or, in your own business. By treating the business as if it were yours, you are honoring your boss. These days, in the me, myself, and I want it attitude it’s not always the politically correct or the popular thing to do, but it is important to be mindful of doing things to enhance and to take care of your employer’s business. We hear a lot of stuff about employee benefits and what the employee wants… oh, yeah, engagement is so important; but, how about treating the business with kid gloves and doing what needs to be done to honor your boss even if you don’t like your job? After all, aren’t you part of a team? Here are just a few ways that you can move into that arena of honor:

  • Keep personal calls to a minimum (oh, that’s not so obvious, huh)
  • Be on time for work and for meetings
  • Work steadily and diligently
  • Take initiative
  • Do the hard thing first when you get into work
  • Finish projects on time and in excellence
  • Always be working on your personal development
  • Get training even if you have to pay for it yourself
