10 Grave Mistakes to avoid

There is a popular saying that 'No one exists without work (doing something) even for a tiniest part of time.' It reveals the fact that one does work whether one likes or dislikes it. Most of our lives are spent working. For a comfortable survival, everyone needs to work.

In the present scenario, every organisation wants their employees to be well experienced with required educational qualification. In order to gain experience, one gets a job.

When you join an organisation for the first time or when you are new on the job, you need to be careful and cautious. You are supposed to know the rules and regulations, the culture, the co-workers, seniors and subordinates, and of course managers or the boss of that organisation. Certain things are expected from you and certain things are to be avoided.

Many of us find our jobs a necessity of life, very few of us love our jobs and rather many of us find it dull and laborious. It is a reality whether one has a blue-collar, white collar or pink-collar job; employees generally, are frustrated, and dissatisfied on the job. But to convert frustration into friendliness, and dissatisfaction into satisfaction, one needs to avoid the following mistakes, when you are new on the job.

Never talk ill of the organisation: Never talk ill of your organisation. Avoid criticising any person or their performance. Just watch people working, learn the task. You need to understand the work–culture of the organisation.

Never talk of your personal problems: Once you are new on job, be very careful in speaking or sharing your personal problems with others. Try to avoid sharing your personal matters and financial situation; this may reflect your weakness. People may under-estimate your capacity or may create more problems. Never say you are more skillful: You may be more qualified, more knowledgeable and even more skillful, but it does not mean that others are less qualified, less knowledgeable or less skilled. Let your work speak for your knowledge and skill.

Never favour disgruntled employees: Satisfaction and dissatisfaction are the two sides of the same coin. Some employees may be disgruntled in an organisation, due to various reasons, but you, being new on job, are not supposed to be on the side of disgruntled employees, because you don't know the reason. It also projects a wrong image of you.

Never be late: You need to be punctual in your timings. Maintain discipline, it makes you honest, sincere, committed and devoted to duty. If you work and utilise your time properly, it shows you are more productive.

Never be a barrier, become a bridge: You are expected to learn the work-skills. Never allow your ignorance to be a barrier to your growth. You need to learn the skills, techniques and process to fill the gap. Allow your knowledge to become a bridge and equip yourself with relevant information leading to perfection in performance.

Never decide: Share your plan, process, and results of task assigned to you with the team. There may be a risk of wrong decision if you decide individually, hence, allow others to participate, and let the team decide.

Never point out the mistakes of management: There is a saying 'boss is always right'. As you are new in the organisation, you may not be aware of all the plans, processes and practices, therefore, you are not supposed to point out what you think are mistakes of the management. You might not know the agenda and execution of management, therefore, observe silence, be aware, and watch carefully.

Never say I quit: It is not necessary that when you are new, you like the job. It may not suit your qualification or you may not be able to adjust to the new people or new workplace, but never show your unhappiness or dissatisfaction and your inclination to quit the job
