“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

~Sana’ Rasul, Chief Girlfriend

Affirmation: I Do My Work Well.

I have a passion for my work. I think about the purpose behind my tasks. I find meaning in my work and do my job well.  I work as though I am serving a higher calling – not just my employer.

I maintain a positive attitude. I look on the bright side and think about things that make me smile. I demonstrate my team spirit by encouraging myself and others to maximize our contributions.

I communicate openly with my boss. I clarify priorities and goals. I ask relevant questions so I can understand my responsibilities.

I take initiative. I volunteer for challenging assignments and new projects. I strive to exceed expectations.

I focus on solutions. I look for opportunities to increase quality and efficiency. I develop practical action plans to propose to my boss. I test out innovations and make adjustments as needed.

I set goals. I give myself specific and measurable targets to strive for. I create short and long term milestones that help me to measure my progress.

I upgrade my skills. I increase my knowledge and capabilities. I value ongoing learning so I can develop my potential and serve others.

I welcome feedback. I ask my boss and co-workers for their input. Constructive criticism helps me to understand my strengths and the areas where I need to grow.

Today, I put my heart into my work. Excelling at my job gives me a sense of accomplishment.

In the words of Charles Darwin: “I have worked as hard and as well as I could, and no one can do more than this.”

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are 3 things I like about my job?
  2. How can I enhance my job performance today?
  3. What kind of work would I be willing to do for free?
