Habits you should not bring to work

2. Negativity

Negativity really has no place either at home or at work, but at home you might be able to get away with a little empty griping.

At work, though, a negative attitude can really harm your standing with your co-workers and your bosses. Even if you’ve had it up to here, keep your chin up and a positive attitude; you may be surprised at the results.

3. Procrastination

So that pile of dirty dishes isn’t going to clean itself, but that’s a problem for you and you alone. On the other hand, procrastination in the workplace affects the productivity of the entire company, and if you’re habitually late with assignments, rest assured it will not end with a promotion. Keep on top of your workload and thrive.

4. Gossip

Let’s face it, we all like to dish on an acquaintance or two now and then. It’s fun and, in small doses, harmless. However, it is a gigantic mistake to let that gossip bleed through into your interpersonal relationships in the workplace.

Gossip can ruin reputations, but it’s far more likely to be the reputation of the gossiper than the gossipee.
