Work habits — good or bad — have an enormous effect on your value as a boss or employee and, therefore, on your income. Study these sites to learn where you may need improvement.
WORST HABITS: Here's what you're up against — the "10 worst work habits," listed at CareerBuilder. It's likely that most people need to address something on this list, such as being a sloppy e-mailer, bad-mouthing the company, politicking or just being late.
EFFECTIVE HABITS: This list of "5 effective work habits for fresh graduates" turns up many places online, so its origin is not clear. But it is a good short list that's all about being positive, stepping forward when help is needed, and suggesting solutions when you spot problems.
RISE EARLY: Getting up early in the morning makes you more productive, according to this item by work/life writer Jessica Stillman at Bnet. It gives tips on how to become an early riser. Suggestions include having a specific plan for what you'll do when you awake, joining a breakfast club or arranging other social engagements for an early hour, and picking an alarm clock that doesn't drive you nuts.
WORKAHOLIC ALERT: A post by career-and-life writer Rebecca Thorman at Modite.com, which boasts "essays on modern ambition," looks at the pros and cons of being a workaholic and suggests that, far from being a virtue, overworking is merely being exhausted by inefficiency.
SEVEN HABITS: Management guru Stephen Covey's very practical 1990 book, "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People," is briefly summarized here. Covey's habits aim at honing a people-oriented cycle of personal growth, as opposed to self-centered success formulas. This United Kingdom-based site, businessballs.com, swears it's not named for what you think. It has numerous articles on personal development, subjects such as goal planning and management of stress and time.
