It’s Work, Show Up Like a Grown Up — 14 Comments

  1. This is a great tip! When you get into the habit of taking responsibility and not blaming others or relying on others to do your work, you are a much better employee and person.

  2. It really is easy to be lazy when you work from home. But we have to find a way to get up and get done the work.

  3. Yes. When we are at work we are part of a team and we must pull our own weight and not burden the rest of the team.

  4. Yes, we must remember that our jobs are work and we have to behave as if we appreciate them. The workday is not the place for childish ways.

  5. This is such a beautiful article and this is really happening in the reality. I’ve seen a lot of people working responsibly and irresponsibly. Whether we are young or not when it comes to work we should be responsible and professional in doing our tasks, don’t be a burden to your team, be a blessing instead.

  6. Seriously, it is so detrimental to the team to have someone who doesn’t act like an adult at work. It causes so much stress for everyone else.

  7. Yes, when you are at work you definitely need to act like an adult no matter how you feel.

  8. Yes, these are true! I try to be more responsible and disciplines as I face my laptop everyday. It’s so easy to be lazy when you work at home.

  9. Work ethic is so important and something I’m trying really hard to instill in my teenagers. It’s not so ready but I keep on trying!

  10. My biggest tip for being a grownup at work is not to pass the buck. If you don’t know how to do something, don’t just pawn it off on someone else, try to learn how to take care of it yourself.

  11. You are absolutely right. Slacking off and not doing your best one day will lead to the same to happen again and again.

  12. I agree that you should always act like an adult while at work. There is a time for play and a time for work. I think it’s important while working to be professional.

  13. I far too often see adults act like kids at work. Sometimes the kids are more mature! I think everyone should read this!!

  14. I’ve known some young people who showed up like an adult, and I’ve known some older people who showed up like a child. There are many from different age groups who can learn from the other.
