Introduction

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." ⎯ Seneca

Congratulations! You are about to begin an exciting journey of discovery that will change your life forever. From this day forward, you may never look at work the same way again. You may never have to worry about trying to find a job, earning a living, or having job security. You may never have to worry about losing your job, being passed over for a promotion, or feeling bored at work. You may never be unemployed or have to worry about getting fired for poor performance. Does all of this sound too good to be true? Okay, maybe it is expecting a little too much in the beginning; however, everything I've said is possible if you apply what you are about to discover on the pages of this little book. By taking the time to think about your future, you are exercising power over your own life. This is true whether you are just graduating and thinking about work, or maybe you already have a job but want more success and greater rewards for your efforts. Whatever the case, this is the beginning of a major milestone that signifies a new level of maturity, independence, and acceptance of the responsibility for your own life. Now, don't get me wrong! I'm not saying that you will never again experience problems at work because you might--many people do. Sometimes bad things can happen to good, hard working people through no fault of their own such as layoffs due to a downturn in business and companies going out of business. These things can happen to anybody and most of the time it is nothing personal. What I am suggesting is that if you have made the effort to build a good reputation as a great employee, you will be better prepared for any misfortune that comes your way. Your network of supporters, and the goodwill you have established as a great employee, will help support you when you need it the most, but only if you have worked hard and earned it. Working is a lifelong quest for success that can lead you to the heights of self-fulfillment and prosperity if it is done successfully--or to the depths of frustration and poverty if it is not. The good news is that your success or failure is totally up to you, and it will be based upon your own efforts to master certain necessary skills. This book is an introduction to the various strategies and philosophies that will guide you through your transition to success and help ensure you achieve the greatest results for your hard-earned efforts. As daunting as it is exciting, destiny moves you to your future one step at a time with each step providing the lessons that will prepare you for the next. These lessons come with the responsibility to learn them and then to apply this knowledge to the best of your ability. Everything you need for each stage of your life will come to you, not necessarily when you want it but more often when you need it, as long as you are ready and looking for it at the right time, in the right place, and with the right attitude. Much of this information is common sense that may eventually be revealed to you over your working lifetime. Unfortunately, for many people it may take years to realize the truth of these values--and some people never do really get it. But by learning and applying these techniques now, you are giving yourself a huge advantage and the opportunity to implement these strategies before most people realize how important it is to their success. So good luck and good reading! Just remember that the race isn't always to the swift but more often to the one who knows the best shortcuts.

DESCRIPTION: Providing young adults with the gift of success.

The title, Great Job is a simple play-on-words with the potential for great meaning and impact to a young persons life. To a parent, relative or close friend, it is a high form of recognition and encouragement for having accomplished some major milestone, such as graduating, coming of age or landing their first job. It can also be viewed as a reference to a certain job as being a great job to have and worth doing well.

A good work ethic is not something most people are born with; it is something we must learn, usually through some very tough experiences. This guide can help reduce the disappointment and harshness of those experiences and ensure that ones self-esteem and self-worth stay intact.

Our success in life and at work will not happen by accident. It takes focus, effort and determination to reach any true measure of accomplishment. In addition to the areas of physical and emotional maturity, we cannot overlook the need to impart a general knowledge and understanding of the employee-employer relationship to our young adults. This knowledge is critical to the development of young people into mature and successful working adults, and is the key to their self-sufficiency.

Studies have shown that the earlier we learn a subject the easier it is to grasp and with that in mind we can not start too soon exposing young adults to the success strategies that will carry them to adulthood. This guide will not only teach these critical success strategies, but will also help ensure a fulfilling life of high self-esteem and self-worth that can have a lasting effect in every aspect of their lives.

Topics covered are:
Work ethics
Attitude
Adding value
Attendance
Self-esteem
Becoming invaluable
Problem solving
Teamwork
Decision-making
Goal setting
Career vs. Job
And much more...
