AS A WORK MINIMALIST DON'T...

avatar
(Edited)

In one way or another, we all can apply being a minimalist in whatever we do. There are some of us who go to work at the office, some work as entrepreneurs and some work from home, one way or another, we all are engage in one work or another as a means of livelihood. Everyday as we engage in our daily activities, we realize that some days are productive and other days are not. Being a work minimalist would help us curb some excesses in whatever work we do.

As a work minimalist, there are some things you should avoid no matter what;

AVOID SAYING "THERE IS STILL TIME" BECAUSE THERE IS NO TIME

As workers we are sometimes tempted to say this especially when we think the job is a piece of cake. I always believe it's always best to get things done quickly when we have very good knowledge of how to get it done than wait for the deadline. Of course, there are some exceptions but we are not looking at them here. There are many benefits for getting a task done before the deadline like, you get the chance to access what we have done and that helps improve one's working environment.

AVOIDING LEAVING TOO MUCH WORK UNDONE

There are some days when we feel tired or overwhelmed by some task before us and we just want to get some rest, this might be as a result of carrying over task. As a work minimalist, you should always be swift with getting jobs done as this will help improve your mental and physical state. Getting tasks done at the appropriate time will help you maintain a very good work environment as a minimalist.

ALWAYS BE CHEERFUL

Some might not see this as important but trust me when I say it is. For instance, imagine a dark room and suddenly there was light, what do you think the light has done to the dark room? The light has given hope to the dark room, similarly our smiles and happy faces brings light to our work environment and this makes it conducive for yourself and others as well. "Our smile sends a healthy message to those around us and it also shows our readiness for each passing day - Hopestylist."

AVOID EYE SERVICE

In our world today, I have come to realize that there are so many people who do what they do just to please people for some special benefits and not because they want to give their best. In my country, the teachers here are under paid and because of that, most of them just teach without caring whether or not their students/pupils are understanding them. There are some times when it is announced that the ministry of education is coming to investigate, immediately all the careless teachers try to look for a way to clean up their mess but because of their lack of preparedness they might end up creating chaos in their work environment.

DON'T BE SELFISH

When working at any point, we should always try to esteem others above ourselves even while we do the things that are expected of us to do for our growth. Esteeming others higher than ourselves does not mean we are less, it only means that we are learning to put ourselves in different situations as anyone and this also helps us to create better relationships with our environment even at our various work places both online and offline.

DON'T BE DECEITFUL

While working, we often engage in conversations and in this conversations we are sometimes asked questions which most times are used to know whether we are honest or not. When working anywhere and you are known for always speaking the truth, we find out that we make our work environment more comfortable that it even stays to feel like home.

As we would have noticed, there are a whole lot of things one could do as a work minimalist to maintain a good work environment for oneself and others but for the sake of this write up, I have chosen to discuss just five things which I know if implemented will yield a very good work environment.

Oh these are a great tips @hopestylist. I can always relate to something leaving work undone. Sometimes we feel lazy and we keep on telling, I will do it later, i will do it tomorrow until a lot of things undone.

Hello @hopestylist
I enjoyed reading this because you seem to embody the idea of minimalism at work broadly. Yes, applying to concept can be beneficial for every means of a livelihood, whether it be in gardening, office work, and especially self employment of any kind. What you say of time and just doing what needs to be done is spot on!

Quite adequate points! I find that I have learned from my procrastinating nature. There is no time! We find ourselves relaxed today only to have a pile the next. Right now, I have a lot of work unfortunately and it won't be easy at all come Monday when I resume my classes. Getting our priorities right is the best way to work honestly!

You are absolutely right, getting our priorities right will help us curb most of our excesses. When we know what to do and the right time to do it, it gets easier for us to navigate through our different tasks at the particular time we should.

I can imagine what you will have to go through to meet up with all of your tasks, all the best in setting up everything right dear.

I think I'm guilty as charged.... for the offence of number 1 and 2...

I have so many works left undone and most times, the phrase of "there is still time" is like a national anthem to me.

At the end of the day, I'll nau rush and do them. Sometimes I end up doing the well, but the fact is I would have done better if u had done them at the apt time.

Wonderful piece you’ve shared dear @hopestylist

Of course Sir, you don't have to tell me, I already know you are guilty as charged but I will not charge you again since you are honest, hehehe.

It's always hard to get some things done at the appropriate time but that is where discipline comes in, we just have to be intentional about some things and not take them to lightly.

I'm most honored to receive such a great confession on my post 😁, thank for your thoughtful contribution dear 🥰.

My dear hope, apart from being a very good friend, you have also been a very good teacher to me. If I say I say I didn't learn anything from this article I lied a lot. There is no time even when it seems like we have forever. Thanks a lot for sharing this with us.

You should have just talk to me directly,instead of going through corners😩😂😂. I am use to the No 1😩. Most times I will keep pushing things I am suppose to do in a day to the second day,by saying there is time,then when it’s the second day,I won’t have time to do it,because I will be preoccupied by another thing . This really helpful dear,thanks for sharing,I will definitely change😁.
