Setting Yourself Up for A Successful Work Day, Before You Ever Leave Home

Having a successful career is the goal for each applicant at PHR Staffing Solutions, and our goal is to help make that happen. By evaluating applicants based upon their skills, qualifications, educational and work history, and personality, we can best match them with openings with businesses in and around the greater Polk County area. However, we can’t guarantee that they will launch into career success unless they are willing to put in the work as well. Oftentimes, the work of becoming successful starts before you ever even walk into the office (or warehouse) each day. Real success begins at home.

How can you set yourself up for success in your job before you even come to work?

  • Self care. Taking care of yourself is an important part of doing well at work. If you are eating unhealthy meals (or skipping meals altogether), going without sleep, etc. then you won’t be your best by the time you reach the office. Aim to get adequate sleep at night, and start your morning with a filling and healthy breakfast. Don’t forget to pack a lunch to keep your energy up during the work day!
  • Prepare ahead. Running late in the mornings mean you will be stressed and frazzled by the time you get to your job. Alleviate some of this stress by preparing for your day the night prior. Lay out clothes, pre-pack your lunch when possible, and double check gas in your car so you aren’t left on empty when you’re in a rush.
  • Stay organized. Being disorganized means you are less likely to be successful in the office or out. If you have no organizational system, and are constantly scrambling to find where you put keys, your sunglasses, or important papers, then you will often be late and inefficient in your daily tasks. Staying on top of organization sets you up for success in every area of life, not just your career.

We hope these tips help you feel capable as you head into the office each day. Still looking for the perfect job? PHR Staffing Solutions is here to help. We will do our best to set you up for success in your job search, and help you launch your career in the best position for YOU. Give us a call or apply online to get started!
