It might seem early for teens to be concerned about work habits. But fact is, our current education system does not prepare us well to enter the work force, and if you are one of the students searching for jobs this summer, or looking forward to a successful college career, you better start building good work habits. There have been more than one instance when I witnessed recently graduated students straggling to work. Most suffer from a lack of self-discipline that ensues tiring, overworked days of catching-up. More commonly seen are college students who continuously pull all-nighters during exam weeks while humbly accepting Cs on their transcripts. Most of us have an inkling of how our lives go wrong, but few really took the necessary steps to make real changes. And those who do become extraordinary individuals. Our live styles should be adjusted to our goals, not the other way around. Remember, before Michael Jordan became an undisputable legend, he was shooting balls tirelessly – every day. Work habits start with little details – personal hygiene, enough sleep, organized desks and folders – to routines that are harder to create – waking up early, being on time. At first, it might be a bit torturing to have self-discipline, but they are crucial in our lives. Once you have created structures in your life, they will become the hardest habits to break.
