How was your First Day of Work?

You probably remember your first day of work.  There are some people who enjoy their first day of work, but majority of workers tend to struggle on their first day of work mainly due to a lack of knowledge within the workplace and inexperience.  In the beginning, your workplace almost seems like a totally different country with its own unique culture, and your co-workers seem like distant foreigners.  You had to be anxious about so many things when you start your job such as leaving a solid first impression with your boss and co-workers, excelling in your duties & responsibilities, making a careless error, and a lot more.

Generally, the first day of work has been known as one of the most stressful days for the employees.  Well, for those people who are about to start their first jobs or those who are planning on working in a professional environment one day, here are some things you want to do & not to do.


  • Be yourself. Remember that you are already hired, so your boss obviously sees potential in you.  So, there is absolutely no need for you to go overboard with impressing your boss.  In fact, your boss will most likely appreciate you even more if you act you’re your normal self.
  • Lay Foundations. It is essential for any employee to know his or her exact objectives & in the workplace.  Doing this will give you a sense of purpose within the company.
  • Try to be social. If your boss or colleagues ask you for lunch or after-work drinks, then I highly recommend you accept the invitation unless you certainly cannot.  Your co-workers might be impressed with your work ethic, but some want to see the fun side of you.  Also, social events are helpful because it gives a chance to get to know your co-workers more on a personal basis.


  • Be late to work. Being late on your first day heavily implies to your boss that you don’t value the company or your colleague’s time.
  • Insult your past co-worker or boss. You might have been fired or quit your last job, and you might want to vent the incident to your new co-workers.  However, try to avoid speaking badly about them.  You are now in a better work environment with a fresh start.
  • Decline your co-worker’s help. I am aware that some introverted individuals don’t like to be depended on others.  However, if your co-workers offer to help you on your first day, be sure to allow his generosity.  If you decline, some colleagues might be insulted or consider you as a non-team player.

What has Globalization Done for us?

Ever since our world has been significantly globalized, it has given us a massive opportunity to stay connected with others from all over the world.  Globalization has made an impactful difference within the workplace.  For instance, our modern technological development has allowed businesses to be involved with a new virtual marketplace that expands beyond geographical borders.  Globalization has enabled many organizations to conduct their businesses abroad easily & quickly and increased free trading opportunities between countries.

Being on Time Is More Than Just Being on Time

What do all successful & dedicated workers have in common?  They consider their time as a priceless resource.  For instance, your employer will most likely be disappointed in their workers if they are not on time.  Any doctor will be dissatisfied in their patients if they don’t show up on time.  Why is that?  Why exactly do we get upset when our friends don’t show up on time?  Well, there is a plethora of reasons people appreciate those who value punctuality.  Punctuality tends to display one’s character.  Punctuality is a sign of professionalism and means more than just showing up before you are late.

By showing up on time, you have already enhanced your productivity within the workplace.  Punctuality is also a way to demonstrate a sign of veneration to your co-workers and clients by acknowledging their time and your own commitments.  Some people even consider punctuality as an indicator of one’s characteristics.  Some believe that people who are punctual tend to be more dependable, reliable, diligent, trustworthy and committed to their work because they honor their duties & responsibilities as an employee.

Myeka Johnson, the CEO of Direct Consultants LLC, also considers punctuality as a vital factor within her workplace.  She always comes to work on time, and makes sure her employees show up promptly for work because she expects all her employees to constantly display professionalism.  Always keep in mind, being on time is more than just being on time.

Beneficial Changes that Fitness can do for you within the Workplace

Generally, people desire to be in the best physical shape they can be.  However, not everyone puts enough efforts to achieve his or her fitness goals.  People understand the universal benefits of fitness such as better health and flexibility, but they don’t seem to grasp the major beneficial changes fitness offers within the workplace.  For instance, a study shows that fit employees are less likely to get sick which means being healthy alone will strongly boost your contribution to your organization.  Nowadays, fitness has been used as a popular method for employers to boost the overall productivity within the workplace.  Employers attempt to make the workplace more flexible and fitness-orientated for the employees’ health.

There are countless benefits of maintaining fitness within the workplace.  Fitness tends to bring out the best attitudes from the employees due to well-balanced physicality and mentality.  It also develops one’s self confidence because an individual must set and eventually reach one’s fitness goals to be fit & healthy.  Therefore, those employees who have made themselves proud by maintaining top-physical conditions are already aware that nothing is impossible if they put the similar efforts they put in for their fitness goals.  Also, self-confidence of an employee naturally leads to an energetic employee who inspire others to gain self-confidence as well.

The CEO of Direct Consultant LLC, Myeka Johnson, is also an employer who highly values fitness.  She is aware that to be an efficient & effective leader in her workplace, she must prioritize & take care of herself.  Therefore, she often exercises about three times a week even with her hectic schedule.  She believes that everyone’s goal in life should be maximizing his or her full potential, and fitness should be utilized as an important tool to achieve it.

Essence & Impact of Positive Thinking

What do all successful business owners have in common?  They all have mastered the act of positive thinking.  How can positive thinking be so influential?  Well, positive thinking is simply more than constantly demonstrating your smile and upbeat attitude to your surroundings.  In fact, a plethora of people nowadays highly underestimates the impact of positive thinking.  Positive thinking is the constant process of building optimistic point of views that will ultimately create your positive energy into your reality.  Positive thinking tends to strengthen one’s happiness, motivation, self-esteem, health, general relations and a lot more.  There are also other health benefits such as fighting depression, strengthening one’s immunity, coping with stress, and more!

Positive thinking is certainly considered as a crucial quality that every successful person is already adroit at.  For instance, a powerful leader such as Myeka Johnson certainly possesses the positive thinking technique.  Positive thinking is one of the reasons how Myeka consistently maintains her strong confidence & leadership in her work place which could also explain her effective professional/personal relationships with other employees.  Also, her positive thinking has always influenced her employees to stay consistently diligent, motivated, engaged and committed for their duties & responsibilities.  She has shown that positive thinking does not only affect you, it is also beneficial for your surroundings as well!

Positive thinking doesn’t necessarily solely apply to your professional & business environments!  It could be utilized in so many different situations.  For instance, many people attempt to lose some weight because they do not appreciate their current physical appearances.  Well, the most important thing is to believe in yourself!  Always be proud of your current body while working for what you truly want!  Always remember that you can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.
