If you want to waste time, make sure that you save it for your own time, not your employer’s. When you’re at work, commit to working. That means:
- You’re not continually checking your phone or being disruptive with audible alerts/notifications.
- Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites are only on your work computer if it is clearly a part of your job duties.
- Personal phone calls outside of emergencies are saved for breaks.
By keeping your personal life and habits away from the office, you’ll earn greater respect from supervisors and managers. This respect can lead to more responsibility, increased income and numerous opportunities. If you appear to be a slacker, you will be treated like one.
