O is for Offer

Make yourself available when needed. Do not discriminate between work-related projects .

Open yourself up for every opportunity, not just the opportunities that you suspect will be successful or glamourous.

When there is an opportunity to come in early and help set up for a work event—jump at it! Making yourself available for the seemingly less desirable shifts, in addition to the exciting ones, demonstrates your willingness to grow and your dedication to the company.

E is for Extend

... you must extend beyond what is expected of you. Don’t just complete the task in front of you, go out of your way to make sure it’s done better than anyone else around you could have done it. Do background research. Be more thorough than you think you need to be.

I is for Initiative

Take initiative, If you see a need that isn’t being met, go meet it or bring it to the attention of someone who can. So many people in the workforce are just waiting their turn, but you won’t get ahead if you don’t take action. Do things without having to be asked—even minor things.

A is for Ask

Ask if there is anything else you can help with.

Ask how you’re doing on a project or with a certain skill.

Ask to be included in a meeting. Ask for more training.

Your superiors won’t know you’re hungry for growth and interested in being more involved unless you ask to be.

U is for Update

Update superiors on what you’ve accomplished, don’t make them guess there.

Those simple updates let them know how you are managing the work they’ve assigned and keep your progress at the forefront of their mind.

Making management aware of your progress builds their trust in you as an employee and reminds them how efficient of a worker you are.

Feeling Guilty For Shopping

As shopping for non-essentials becomes a luxury, our old habits of ordering whatever we want, whenever we feel like ordering, is now making many of us feel guilty.
Brands are eager to restart the economy and are putting on great deals for us, and many crippled businesses might need our support too.

There are many factors that pose a dilemma about whether to dive into the running economy again or just stick to essentials.

Turning from negative behaviour at work may mean that people will not automatically see you as changed. Instead, they may continue to interpret your behaviour through a certain box they've put you in. As a result, they may be cautious about offering higher-profile projects or leadership opportunities, as the stakes may feel too high.

Speak candidly to your manager about your changed behaviour and see if you can get more opportunities, but moving on might be the only way to really start over.
