There are certain times at your place of work you might find somethings hard to figure out or do. Most of the time, these tasks seem more difficult when you’re just starting a new job or if you had more tasks added to your job description and you do not know how to go about it. Times like this can be frustrating especially if you’re trying to make a good impression or do well on the job. If you find yourself in such a situation, do not fret; the tips below should help you out.
Many people fail to do this because they don’t want to portray a wrong image of themselves. But this shouldn’t be so. If there’s anything about your job or any task you do not understand; learn to ask questions first from people in the same department with you. If you do not get clarification from them, you can ask someone superior to you like your supervisor. Questions are asked because you want to know more; it doesn’t say less about you or your personality. Even the holy book says “ask and ye shall receive.” If you do not ask, how will you know?
Do some research:
Some people tend to be lazy and love to be spoon-fed. You do not necessarily need to be told everything all the time. There is a reason that job was given to you and not someone else. If you have access to the internet, do some reading and get more information on any topic that seems difficult to understand. There are lots of useful tools you can make use of on the web. Think outside the box and make impact. Knowledge is power.
Most times, tasks you may not enjoy doing are the ones you end up not accomplishing. You may tend to put off tasks with the mind of doing them later. If you do this, you may end up not doing them on time which might result in your not meeting target and set goals. The trick is to act on it when you think of it.
Set goals for those tasks:
Setting specific goals with dates for accomplishing those tasks will propel you to actually work harder in fulfilling them. If your tasks are time bound, you will find it a lot easier to accomplish them.
Jot them down:
List those difficult tasks out on paper and if possible stick that paper right on your desk or desktop in front of you so that it is right in your face. When you constantly see or read it, you’ll be forced to act.
Do it bit by bit:
If your tasks seem over whelming, try handling them bit by bit so you do not get choked. If your deadlines are far apart, all you need do is plan your time or schedule and take them step by step. You do not have to be in a hurry so you don’t make mistakes. Easy does it!
There is nothing that is difficult to do, all it takes is an act.
