"HAPPINESS IS THE RICHEST THING WE WILL EVER OWN."
STORY TIME: THAT’S NOT MY JOB
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody,
and Nobody. There was an important job to do and Everybody was asked
to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have
done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry because it was Everybody’s
job. Everybody thought Anybody would do it, but Nobody realized that
Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody
when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS!
Today, let’s talk about distractions at the jobsite. Working conditions always
vary but some may involves loud noises, flashing lights, and discussions about
the job. You can’t always avoid those types of distractions unfortunately...but
there are some you can avoid including not using your cell phone, keeping
music at a lower volume, and staying clear of negative confrontations. Some
distractions aren’t even work related such as worrying about yourself or
family, financial issues, etc. Bottom line is there are many ways we can lose
focus at work and it is important that for safety reasons we try our best not
to get distracted.
Here are a few helpful tips to stop distractions:
- Give yourself a break, clear your head, and stretch your limbs.
- Drink water! One symptom of dehydration is lack of focus!
- Take care of yourself offsite. Set aside enough time to sleep, eat, and care for
- Electronics. Use your cell phones for important matters only.
- Clear physical space around where you are working.
- Listen to music at a safe volume to help you get in the zone.
