Create a Great Morning Routine
If you’re going to be “that girl” at work, it’s all going to start with you creating a morning routine for yourself. If your mornings are always hectic, it’s going to set a terrible tone for each of your workdays.
You should get into the habit of waking up at the same time each and every day. You should also get into the habit of eating a nice, nutritious breakfast and carving out a little bit of time for yourself in the morning.
In some cases, you might want to use that time to meditate or read. In others, you might want to use it to work out.
But whatever the case, becoming “that girl” at work will begin long before you set foot in the office. Getting your days off to fantastic starts will make all the difference in the world.
Attempt to Arrive at Work Early on a Regular Basis
If you’re running into work late day in and day out, it’s going to be almost impossible for you to be “that girl.” You should try your best to get to work early so that you can get yourself situated.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to get to work an hour early every single day. You’ll be giving up too much of your time each week if you do this.
But you should attempt to get to work at least 5 or 10 minutes early each day. This way, you won’t have to worry too much if you’re ever running later than usual because of traffic or something else that is outside of your control.
Come Up With a List of Short-Term and Long-Term Goals
Setting goals and working to reach them is going to be a very important part of becoming “that girl” at work. If you don’t have tangible goals and if you don’t track goals, you might not ever become “that girl”.
You should start almost every day by coming up with a list of daily goals. You should also have long-term work goals that you’re always working on. Find more information here on setting goals for yourself.
