There are several “things” that are involved in doing your job better. By asking this question, the first “thing” has been identified, you want to improve—good for you. I believe there are two universal thoughts one should have if they want to pursue a path of improvement; first, be willing to do what every you want to improve really poorly in the beginning in order to do it well eventually, change does not come instantly without perseverance; and secondly, you can do almost anything if you have the commitment to get it done under all circumstances. Being more effective in what you do requires commitment to yourself to achieve what you want. Here are a few simple tips and thoughts to consider;
- Identify what conditions or feedback’s you are getting that tell you that you’re NOT doing a good job.
- Ask yourself if you know what it takes to do a better job. Do you need more experience? Do you need more training on how to do the job? Do you need to increase your skills to complete the job? If you’re not sure, ask someone that you believe is willing to help you and would be objective.
- If you need more experience, then ask for opportunities to get more experience. Be willing to volunteer for activities or tasks that will accelerate your experience.
- If you need more training on how to do the job, then try to find a co-worker or senior person that are willing to spend a little extra time explaining/training what needs to be done. Try to find someone that you respect that is willing to Mentor you; Mentoring is the best form of training.
- If you need to increase your skills, then research classes, programs, seminars, webinars, associations, practice more, etc. on your own time.
