5 lessons learned from working a 9 to 5


Being a 16 year old kid who’s just left school or will turn 16 in the next few months as your a summer baby; you think yes I can just walk straight into a job or the dream job that you want, I’m sorry that isn’t going to work because you have to work the most boring jobs first or become an apprentice to work your way up. That’s how you would do it no matter how hard or easy it is; unless you don’t want to do the same job for the rest of your life, maybe you should do something about it. Let me guide you with my 9 to 5 jobs that I have done and some are the similar hours of a 9 to 5 job that I actually enjoyed doing.

Not all 9 to 5 jobs are bad depending on the company and the people you work with. However each company have their own work ethic that we all have to follow; people also work differently as we are our own individual, who works different but get the work done quickly and officially.

If you do not like the job that your doing; look for something else, or change careers. Something that you prefer to do than doing the job that you don’t want to do right now. You have got your whole life ahead of you work towards what you actually want to do; than stick behind a boring desk job or till job, that won’t give you the satisfaction or pleasure of making yourself happy. 

If you get stuck with anything then; there is no shame in asking for help, they are always there to help that’s what part of a team is working together and to give support with one another. 

To be able to helpful and to use your common sense if someone needs help on the tiles or something needs to be put out; then use your common sense and help the rest of the team, than sit right back and think they can do it all. 

If an experience staff is telling you something or explaining something to you; listen to them if your still not sure what you have to do or if you don’t think if you haven’t done something right, ask them to come and check or ask them again to be on the safe side of things. 

All of these points are very helpful and it’s the best start out in life of all jobs. You never stop learning when you leave school; you never stop training for things, all jobs are not always going to be your life long dreams. Changes are good and better because otherwise you will get stuck in a rut doing the same thing everyday with the same people. The longest job that I’ve been in is 4 years each day was a different day; but now that I’m doing something different, won’t be starting until September it’s something that I would love to do for a few years until I actually know what I want to do with my life. 

It can either take me to a different direction or I can stay in one direction; I like to keep my options open, so that if something comes up that I want to do then why not take it up and go for it. Like right now I’ve got the time to do my blogging and writing so I’m taking the opportunity to focus on this; until I start working again, along side it. As I want to be successful in a writing career; to which I can turn it into a business, to which I can live on as much as I can. The only way I can do that is to be able to work hard at it; continue to write, and explore more areas than one.
