Your work ethic, and not your amazing talent and skills, will account for most of your career success. People who go the extra mile in their job — just because it’s the right thing to do — usually earn bigger salaries, gain greater respect from their employer and have higher self-esteem. Some get very rich!
Read what people in the news say about the role of a strong work ethic in their lives.
|“I don’t think of myself as a poor, deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who, from an early age, knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.”|

|“Things may come to those who wait, but they’re only the things left by those who hustle.”|

Magic Johnson – Basketball star, entrepreneur
|“Success is dependent upon the glands – sweat glands.”|
Zig Ziglar – Motivational speaker
|“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’”|
Muhammad Ali – World heavyweight boxing champion,

Which of these quotes describes your work ethics best? If you disagree with all these quotes, write your own quote that describes how you feel about work ethics.
You’re on time for work after you have hung your coat, gotten your beverage, stopped by the bathroom, checked your personal messages, said “Good morning” to your colleagues and are in your workspace ready to begin at starting time.
You’re not on time if you pull into the parking lot at one minute before starting time, and then go for a drink, stop to chat with colleagues, and spend a few minutes looking at personal messages. The company begins paying at the designated starting time, not when you finish with your personal interests.
Does this strict adherence to the clock ever change? Maybe, after you’ve proved your dedication to the company and shown a high level of productivity. It all depends on where you work and the attitude of management there.
If your manager is one who assigns a project and a deadline and displays the attitude, “Just get the job done on time,” you may be able to hedge a little on starting time. But, until you’ve been given the go-ahead, don’t abuse the starting time. Otherwise, you may get labeled as a slacker. And that’s a label that’s hard to overcome”
How would strict requirements for being on time to work affect your attitude toward a job?
