Define Career

For single ladies, career is VERY IMPORTANT because that's where her source of income derives in order for her to survive in the pursuit of life, get her own house, own car, pay her medical/life insurance policy, her study loan debts, etc. It's good to advance & develop & getting better in life, ESPECIALLY in my career. Put aside boy-girl relationship. I don't have time for that, it hurts, & most guys are blind. (*High-fived*)

Career Attitude
1. Pride. Self-dignity. If everything we do at work has our name and signature on it, we'll give it our best shot and nothing less.

2. Passion. Just a simple plain ‘interest’ isn’t enough to bring us through tough times (unreasonable client/impossible timeline). An intense enthusiasm for all things worth doing will pull us through the toughest times.

3. Belief. In order to generate that passion, it is important to believe. Only a deep belief will create the vigour and force that gives us the fuel to charge. We can achieve all that we set out to do for ourself.

4. Self-discipline. Part of self-discipline is to sacrifice some fun time to focus on our goals.

5. Success. Knowing our goal and personal definition of success is an important element. Then, play up on our strengths and improve on skills required. Think about what are the skills sets that we do not have that are required for our job and build them up.

6. Sincerity. Doing our work with our level best, play our part, take personal responsibility for our work, and share your learning and knowledge.

In summary, the most important and practical things are developing self-discipline, learning to sacrifice, define what success means, be single-minded in pursuit of goals by knowing our strengths and skills, and doing our work with sincerity and have sharing as a work value we carry.

Leadership Skills
1. Integrity. To gain people's trust, it is important to learn to be honest. Take responsibility for our own actions. Do not play the blame game when things go wrong.

2. Passionate. Enthusiastic about work, have the ability to rub this energy off on others.

3. Commitment. Work hard and have a strong discipline in following through with team members' work.

4. Courageous. Brave to confront risks and the unknown. The ultimate test of a leader’s courage is also the courage to be open.

5. Goal-oriented. Focus on the objectives that need to be attained. Develop a plan and strategy to achieve the objectives. Build commitment from the team and rally them to achieve the organization’s goal.

6. Developing people. Develop the people to build a stronger team so that the organization is effective.

7. Prioritize. Do the most urgent and important things first regardless of interest in them.

8. No public glory. Whatever achievements are the result of joint effort. Share glory and credit with the rest for the work.

Work Behaviors
1. Prioritize our work. A good work plan or action plan is one that details what needs to be done, when and by whom. Have work plans for all the projects we are involved. Make sure the important work is completed on time so that the rest can carry out their duty smoothly and successfully. This contributes to the team’s success and people will know that we have work behaviors that are reliable.

2. Do more than talk.

3. Keep others informed. This allows team members to pace their work and know what to expect. Execute these work behaviors honestly, sincerely and consistently.

4. Self esteem. The experience of being capable of meeting life's challenges and being worthy of happiness. This definition breaks self-esteem into two components – the sense of competency (having the conviction and confidence to do the tasks at hand and achieving the intended results) and the sense of worthiness (finding relevance in things that foster personal growth and making the commitment to these goals that gives one a sense of satisfaction).

Time management
1. Understand roles. Understand own role and responsibilities in the office.

2. Do the important & urgent first. Prioritize tasks at hand. Do not overwhelm ourself with too long a to-do list. Too long a to-do list may cause us to procrastinate on starting the work.

3. Do not waste time. Allocate time for each task on our to-to list. Be conscious of time robbers, e.g. long tea breaks, long smoking breaks, chatting on the phone and surfing on the Internet.

4. Do it right the first time. Whatever we are doing, get it right the first time. Have a high personal standard that says nothing leaves our hand unless we know we have done our best.

5. Do it now. Do the task immediately. Do not procrastinate. Do not over rationalize and craft the perfect plan. A good plan executed today is better than an excellent plan not executed at all.
