“Whether people have worked at the same job for twenty years or one day, the one thing most have in common is thinking about a job promotion or career advancement. There are no shortcuts or quick steps to getting a promotion or advancing in a career but people definitely have to get rid of their bad habits for career advancement success. Career advancement success is setting achievement goals, defining these goals and taking action.
To achieve your career advancement goals means getting rid of bad habits that hurt your chances of success, such as having a poor work attitude. Never volunteering to help any of your coworkers or boss, doing personal things during office hours, talking back or showing annoyance when asked to do a task are bad habits that need correcting. Bosses are more likely to promote people that are pleasant, willing to help others, make personal calls on their break or lunch hour, and use their time wisely. During business hours, never use the telephone for personal calls unless it is an emergency.
